Homecoming?

Homecoming?

We just experienced a significant moment in the Fisher household: Homecoming weekend. It was No. 2’s first big high school dance. While my wife was beside herself with excitement, I didn’t understand the severity of it. I don’t ever remember going to a homecoming dance. As she does with most of our different points of […]

They Grow Up So Fast

They Grow Up So Fast

My daughter did something this week that I hoped she would never do. She turned 12. Not that I hoped she wouldn’t make it to 12. I guess that sounds bad. No, I, like many parents, wish she would stay my sweet little innocent baby girl. I met No. 3 when she had just turned […]

The Idiot Has Spoken

The Idiot Has Spoken

A new football season is upon us! As are many people, I am thoroughly excited. Football should be one of life’s simple pleasures: Tailgating, unhealthy foods, cold brews and the excitement of the game. What’s not to like? Then some guy has to go and sit down. In case you haven’t been paying attention, this […]

So Long, Rockfather

So Long, Rockfather

I first met Chuck Williams in the ‘90s the same way most everyone in Augusta did — he was a familiar voice on the radio. For a hip-hop kid who seldom listened to rock radio, that should pretty much explain the instant connection he made with people. You hear his voice and you feel like […]

A Birthday and a Funeral

A Birthday and a Funeral

We celebrated a birthday this past weekend in the Fisher household. Our youngest, No. 4, turned 8 on Sunday. 8! Man how time flies! My kids’ birthdays can be a little on the stressful side. There’s the “they’re another year older, where does the time go?” stress. There’s also the stress of getting the gift, […]

Where Would You Be If….

Where Would You Be If….

I once wrote about life being a big “Choose Your Own Adventure Book.” Occasionally, I’ll think about where my life would be had I chose the “other” adventure. Actually, I could be in BDUs. I was recently reminded that my life was almost drastically different. I was reminded of this in a conversation about ROTC […]

Not Quite Ready for High SchoolNot Quite Ready for High School

It’s that time of year, once again: Back to school. It’s normally dreaded by kids everywhere. Summertime is over, so no more swimming, no more sleeping in, no more late nights. It’s back to the grind. My kids, however, are beside themselves with excitement. My daughter, No. 3, is excited because she’s starting middle school […]

Bear Market

Bear Market

Life has a way of being awesome but sometimes being terrible. Things seem to happen in clumps. Either a few good things happen or a few bad things happen. I like to refer to it as my own personal stock market. Last week I find a $20 bill on the ground and get the last […]

It’s a Dog’s World

It’s a Dog’s World

Amongst all the controversy and arguing these past couple of weeks, I’ve had some friends lose some loved ones that were quite dear to them. As I sat and thought about the hurt they are going through, it really put things into perspective for me. I’ve been through their same kind of hurt. Many of […]

Behind the Scenes

Behind the Scenes

The real, but too-long headline, should read “Behind the Scenes of Trying to Put on a Concert in Augusta.” And even then, it is a little deceiving, because I should specify a “non-country” concert in Augusta. Putting a country concert on in Augusta, I suspect, goes something like this: Schedule absolutely any country artist ever […]
