It Must Have Been The Ninth

It Must Have Been The Ninth

They say there’s a sucker born every minute. I always wondered who these “suckers” were, until recently. As it turns out, you guessed it, it’s me. Case in point: I just paid $223 for my neighbor’s dead pet. Suckerrrrrr! I got the ol’ Lloyd Christmas treatment. Except, this was no parakeet and at least it […]

I’m Winning!

I’m Winning!

Thank you, thank you. No congratulations necessary. I don’t exactly want to win. Not this contest, anyway. A few months ago, I wrote about the ongoing Who’s more pathetic? competition going on in my house. I am a fan of all teams Atlanta: The Falcons, the Hawks, the Braves… well, the now Cobb County Braves […]

A Chip Off the Old Block

A Chip Off the Old Block

One of my kids is currently grounded. I won’t say which one. Because, although I talk about some very personal things in this column, I’m not really into publicly shaming my kids. Well, if there’s no comedic value in it, anyway. Maybe I should reconsider the public shaming. Some people have used this as a […]

Any Given Every Day

Any Given Every Day

I have already seen more football this season than most people will see all season. Aside from the Falcons and the ‘Dawgs, I have two kids playing football at different levels. No. 2 is playing high school ball. He’s a freshman that dresses for both JV and Varsity, which means he’s got two games every […]

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 […]
