The girls and I watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas the other day (the cartoon, not the Jim Carrey version, which I've never seen and refuse to watch) and I was reminded of that maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas means a little bit more. Only I'm having the best freakin' December... Continue Reading →

Squirrel the Caterpillar

I think it's every dad's job to antagonize his kids. Or maybe it's just me? Sam's still a little young to know when I'm just busting her chops (although she's getting there), but I've spent a great deal of time giving Heather grief. For instance, she'll say something like, "Can we have pork chops for... Continue Reading →

The Basketball Diaries – Part Three

Ty and I were standing on the sidelines waiting to play. This was somewhere around 2004, and I had been playing basketball three times a week, a couple hours a session, since 1998. Needless to say, my game had changed. After all, I'd now been playing basketball for about as long as I played football,... Continue Reading →

Anyway, when I heard yesterday that Hugh Hefner died I was put in mind of my childhood. Stay with me 😉 I was specifically... Continue Reading →

So Here’s What’s Crazy

You might know I've got a book coming out. You might have presumed I'd be writing another book. You'd be right. It's the sequel to PUNISHMENT, and it's going really well (at least in my mind). In this new book there's a lot of interaction between the protagonist and an unknown caller on his phone.... Continue Reading →

I Like Cheese Balls

The oddest recurring phenomenon in my married life is that ladies seem to like me more than when I was single. It's crazy. I'll be standing in line at the grocery store sporting a beat up Led Zeppelin t-shirt, my dirty 'house' jeans, and flip-flops, my hair a wafro of disaster, beard out of control......
