A Simple Gesture

A Simple Gesture Two lanes become five at this particular intersection. The two on the left are left-only lanes. The furthest to the right, a no-turn-on-red right-only. The final pair of lanes, as I reckon you’d have already guessed, are supposed to go straight. Straight and only straight, up an hardly perceivable... January 25th, 2018 | Parenting Blog | Read More

The Best U.S. Port To Cruise Carnival

The Best U.S. Port To Cruise Carnival Truth time: I originally didn’t qualify this post with that ‘U.S.’ bit. But then I remembered we once cruised Carnival out of Barcelona, the greatest city on this or any planet. So, ‘Best U.S. Port’ this quickly became. Because I spend faaaaaar too many daytime hours alone... January 23rd, 2018 | Travel | Read More

The Old Trafford Steward in Section N2403

The Old Trafford Steward in Section N2403 Being inside an empty football stadium gives me the tingling. It’s not quite a fetish but it is undeniably a thing for me.

Today it begins, the Whole Life Challenge, and it began, for me, with a smart wholesome breakfast of a fried... January 20th, 2018 | Parenting Blog | Read More

That Whole Circle of Life Thing

That Whole Circle of Life Thing I ordered my marriage neat, but ice cubes have been plunked in from on high and the damn things won’t melt. It’s colder than usual in here. We can see each and every breath. I’d settle for watered down, that’d be fine from here on out. I just don’t want to choke. No one... January 19th, 2018 | Parenting Blog | Read More

The Teen’s Very Good Night and Day and Night on Broadway

The Teen’s Very Good Night and Day and Night on Broadway That first night was pretty special. The Mrs. and the teen thought we were starting our time in New York City at a hockey game in Brooklyn.
