Opportunities Ahead?

Morning Kiddos This is an important post (at least I think it is), but you are probably too young to fully grasp it or maybe I just think it’s important when it’s not? That said, I believe it is important and hope some of it sinks in and that you remember some of these words?  […]

Love – of course!

Dear Daughter & Son Love is the most obvious “why life is great” posting, but I wanted to wait until today to post it because it’s mom and dad’s 25th wedding Anniversary. While this is the most obvious, it is also one of the most complicated and long winded postings ever.  Philosophers, psychiatrists, poets and […]

Don’t be Distracted! You’re on a Mission!

Dear May All across the world the age old right of young people to earn acceptable grades in under threat by grumpy old professors and overly competitive institutions.  You need to relax and become a student ninja capable of kicking ass on the finals.  Do NOT be distracted by the nerds around you or too […]

Best Time & Place to be a Woman!?

Dear Daughter This is sadly a serious post and a failing on my part for not having discussed this with you before. It’s seriousness mandates lots of words, that’s why you’re getting it on a weekend. I know you’re busy at school, but there’s never a right time for this one. It’s about sexual harassment! […]

Silliness Makes Life Great

Dear Daughter I have many photos of our family and this one is one of my more favorites photos of you to date.  It’s you just being spontaneously silly, which is what I think really makes Life Great. The photo next to yours is of another silly guy, so maybe it’s in the genes. Hang […]

Embarrassing Situations – Good Outcomes!

Dear Daughter Sorry this post is a little long! Sometimes doing the right thing is a little embarrassing, but it makes Life Great. A short story here – remember Birdo (you named it, not me)? The baby bird our darn cat brought home for us as a gift? He was tiny and so fragile at […]
