The End Is Near!

The End Is Near!

As we are nearing the final days of the school year, I’d like to reflect on the things I’ve learned about my kids’ schools. Here are some of my observations from over the years… There’s no threat of the paddle. Y’see, for some of our younger readers, school officials back in the ‘80s (and before, […]

Dear Mama: Tell Me How You Did It

Dear Mama: Tell Me How You Did It

I’ve said it before and, man, is it ringing true this week. I have no idea what I’m doing and I think my kids are on to me. It’s appropriate that I’m feeling this way on the week before Mother’s Day. Buying Mother’s Day gifts are stressful for me. I have two great moms, my […]

Writing the Future

Writing the Future

The pre-concert jitters. It’s something I haven’t had in a while. I used to get ‘em before almost any concert I went to because I was so excited. It’s a major reason why I wanted to play radio for a living. I love going to concerts. Somewhere along the way, I lost the pre-concert jitters. […]

The Surprising Gift of Giving

The Surprising Gift of Giving

I got to do something recently that I have never gotten to do. The surprising part is that it wasn’t something like kayaking down the Savannah or riding my motorcycle down the coast or any of the other things that I’ve promised myself I’d do before I turn 40… uhh, I mean 30. No, it […]

Can’t Wait for Next Year

Can’t Wait for Next Year

The long 51-week wait until the next Masters Week has begun. I’ve always compared it to the feeling I get the day after Christmas: “We have to wait a whole year?!” I guess it’s obvious that I’m one of the people that actually likes Masters Week. I’ve never really understood why people complain about the […]

Not So Funny Meow, Is It?

Not So Funny Meow, Is It?

I feel like something needs to be addressed. It’s the ever-presence of cats. They’re everywhere! Cats in the street, cats in the window, cats in my yard making my dogs attack the blinds. It’s a cat-tastrophy! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Now, I’m not one to tell anyone not to have a pet. But can we […]

I guess that Dad of the Year award is going to have to wait

I guess that Dad of the Year award is going to have to wait

Just when I think I’ve got things figured out. Just as I find the balance between work and daddy responsibilities, I find a way to remind myself that I’m still the bumbling idiot trying to figure out his way through life who has somehow found himself responsible for the wellbeing of three children. Who in […]

Brace Yourself, Birthdays Are Coming

Brace Yourself, Birthdays Are Coming

What do you get for someone who buys himself whatever he wants? It’s a question I ponder around this time every year. The birthday gauntlet begins this week. Between now and July there are four parents’ birthdays (including step-parents), my brother’s birthday, Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, and my wife’s birthday wraps up the gift […]

Bounce Rock Skate Roll

Bounce Rock Skate Roll

Some things never change. One of those things is the décor in the local roller skating rink. My kids have been begging to go skating, so we made a night of it this past Saturday. Upon entering, I noticed that the inside of the skating rink is very cool and retro. It’s retro because it […]

It could have been worse

It could have been worse

So I got to spend a couple of days in a hospital last week. It’s something I get really excited about. If you can’t pick up on the sarcasm, I’ll go ahead and tell you that I would have rather rub porcupines in my eyes while shoving my hands down a garbage disposal… and I […]
