Meet Your Neighbor
Meet Ian Smith,
Poverty Lane Lebanon
What’s your favorite Lebanon hangout spot?
My barn. I spend a lot of time at home and at school... That’s my answer.
What fictional place would you like to visit?
What skill would you like to master?
I’m a master of nothing, but building stonewalls that last a lifetime would be an awesome thing.
What would be your first question after waking up from a 100-year sleep?
How are the Red Sox doing?
What’s your ideal way to spend a weekend in Lebanon?
Get some work done around the house, get a little exercise, and enjoy the evening on the back porch with friends and family.
What’s the best way to start the day?
A cup of coffee and the Valley News
What are you most looking forward to this fall?
Watching my children’s sporting events, doing a little bird hunting, and... the start of school!
What charity or local organization do you donate your time or other resources to regularly?
Public radio and world vision. I also have great respect for Listen, the Upper Valley Haven, and other organizations that support our local communities.
What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?
I love all kinds of food. I don’t cook as much as I should, I’m always appreciative of those who do and I’m always willing to help with the cleanup.
What’s your favorite recent book you read?
Just read Murder House by James Patterson at the beach last weekend; couldn’t put it down.
What was cool when you were younger, but not now?
Most of my friends...
What is your favorite movie from childhood?
What is your motto in life?
Not sure I have one. Maybe “Life is sweet.”
If I gave you $1,000, what would you spend it on?
Someone to paint the front of my house – a boring answer I know.
If you could save or protect one animal, plant or part of our Earth, which would it be?
I’d have to save the ice caps and the rain forest. Elephants and polar bears as well.
