My Wife Just Said… (Zipper Struggle)

Posted by on October 17th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

It’s hard to have a grown-up discussion with your wife when your fly is down or your shirt is inside-out. But it can be done! I’m living proof of this. Frequently.

Posted by on September 14th, 2018, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

M’kay. So maaaaaybe these aren’t such good ideas. It’s always surprising, the sheer number of inevitable stains that happen in a family.

My Wife Just Said… [Got milk]

Posted by on September 13th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

This would have been a funny, slightly dysfunctional Got Milk ad. Well, it would have been funnier if I wasn’t living it, and having to drive back to the grocery store for a single item.

Father & Son Go Camp Tripping

Posted by on August 2nd, 2018, under VIDEOTAPE

Though I don’t get to do as much of it as I’d like these days, I loved camping as a kid. My parents did, too. Which always works out great; when the budgetary stars, parental planets and children moons all align for something. The camping I did as I got older became a lot more […]
