Mark was an avid fan of The Muppet Show. To this day, his “Kermit the Frog” often accompanies him and Karen on their travels. Mark explains Meso-American ball to Kermit at Chichen Itza. The losing team is sacrificed to the gods.
As a home-builder in the mid 1980’s, Mark introduced the on/off door switch for closet lighting in new homes. Open the closet door, light comes on. Close the closet door, light goes off. You can credit or blame Mark for the innovation.
Mark’s favorite form of exercise is Zumba. He is not nearly as good at it as he thinks he is. Mark’s 2nd favorite form of exercise is “step class.” He’s not bad.
