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 […]

A Reminder

A Reminder

My wife likes to call me “Kirk.” Not because it’s some weird role-playing thing that she’s into. It’s because I’m slowly turning into my father. In case you haven’t picked up on it, his name is Kirk. I’m not mad that she says that. My dad has always been my biggest hero. However, sometimes I […]

The Comeback.

The Comeback.

The city of Cleveland, Ohio, now has another chapter to etch in their long history of sports lore. Although this time, they won’t be the footnote in someone else’s great story, the Washington Generals to someone else’s team, the other team on the Michael Jordan poster, the… well, you get the idea. I’ve been married […]

The Right to Bear Life

The Right to Bear Life

This past Sunday morning, like pretty much everyone, I woke up to the horrific news about a mass shooting at a gay night club in Orlando. This, coupled with the murder of The Voice finalist Christina Grimmie the previous night, made for a horrific weekend for the city of Orlando. It also sparked tons of […]

It Could Happen to You

It Could Happen to You

Last week, the internet was taken by storm by a story about a gorilla, Harambe, being killed because a toddler fell into its exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo. As most people do, you have most likely formed your own opinion about the situation and how it should have been handled. My initial reaction was like […]
