Luck

September 17, 2013

Anytime I reflect on whether I have been “lucky” in my life, the number “460” comes to mind. It’s not a season batting average, or the number of yards passing in a football game. It most certainly is not related to anything sexual in nature, either; with the possible exception being the number of times […]

The Best Gift

September 5, 2013

I love giving gifts!!! Nothing beats the satisfaction of seeing the look on someone’s face as they open a present, knowing you got them something they absolutely wanted.

The Prankster

December 16, 2011

July 24, 2009

I was watching Oprah the other day, but only under duress. I had come downstairs after putting my children to bed, and found my wife glued to the TV.

Whatever!!

July 21, 2009
