My name is Dave Spencer. I am a native of Owensboro, Kentucky. I enjoy watching college basketball, good movies (L.A. Confidential, Field of Dreams are the best...more recently--Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917, Dolemite Is My Name, BlackKklansman, Avengers franchise), good television (MASH, The West Wing, WKRP in Cincinnati, Designing Women, The X-Files...more recently--Mindhunters, Messiah, Ozark, The Handmaid's Tale), listening to music, traveling (I've visited 45 states--five to the goal), being outdoors. There's little point in me going to a fancy Italian restaurant, since I will order spaghetti. What can I say? It's one of my favorites. Pretty blue collar in my food faves--chili, wings, etc. I only like pickle, onion, ketchup, and mustard on a burger, so fancy burger joints would find me boring.
