Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

Some Things I Learned on Family Vacay

I took the fam to the gulf coast over the weekend. We were joined by my wife’s cousin and her kids to make a total of eight people: three adults and five kids. We were outnumbered. Surprisingly, not much went wrong. Given my Grizwaldian luck, I was very surprised. No car trouble, no bad weather, […]

See, What Had Happened Was…

See, What Had Happened Was…

I’ve been asked the same question over and over since about the middle of last November. That’s about the time I returned to Augusta from a failed attempt at following a dream and started having to explain to people why I’m not on the radio anymore. Some people don’t listen on a regular enough basis […]

Some Things, I Just Don’t Understand

Some Things, I Just Don’t Understand

Like most people, there are many things in this world that perplex me. Some would say I’m easily perplexed. Anyway, I figured I’d share some. Maybe you can relate. Or maybe there are things that perplex you. Feel free to comment and share yours on metrospirit.com! Single Serving Condiments: How do they get by without […]

Schools Out For Summer… Almost

Schools Out For Summer… Almost

The countdown is on! As of the morning that this issue hits the stands, my kids have seven days of school left. When I was in school, I always referred to it as the “why assign any schoolwork days.” I mean, we’re almost done right? The last couple of weeks should just be easy, coast-through […]

It’s a Different World

It’s a Different World

So I got a visit from my big brother this past weekend. Kind of. My brother and I are super close. We talk as often as possible and he’s the first person I turn to when I need to vent. I say vent because I stopped asking for advice a while back. I don’t know […]

Be Careful On That Thing!

Be Careful On That Thing!

Imagine if you went through your life constantly hearing how many people die while doing an activity. Not just any activity, but an activity that you love to do, that you are passionate about, that you look forward to doing every chance that you get. This is the life of a motorcycle rider. I love […]

Cassettes vs. Mp3s

Cassettes vs. Mp3s

I think I’ve gotten to the age where we start to hate all the music that our kids are listening to. I remember, as a kid, my parents complaining about the “noise” that was my favorite music. I listened to all kinds of music and my parents had a different name for which kind of […]

Music Is My Life

Music Is My Life

I’ve been thinking about music a lot lately. Music has always been very important to me. It’s one of the primary reasons that I chose radio broadcasting as my career. Now that I am what we in the radio community call “on the beach” (without a radio job), music means even more to me. It […]

Kids Say The Darndest Things!

Kids Say The Darndest Things!

Most kids are a plethora of entertaining quotes. That would be a definite plus when you have three of them that work your nerves daily. I can’t begin to tell you the number of times one of them has made us angry, then immediately diffused the situation by saying something silly. The younger they are, […]

Spring Sports Has Sprung!

Spring Sports Has Sprung!

Although spring seems to be dragging its feet, spring sports are forging ahead. New and future parents take note: Having three kids that want to play spring sports can be quite the challenge, especially when we parents work unusual schedules. For the average 9-5 American family, ushering two or three kids to different sporting events […]
