That Wasn’t The Plan At All

It was delivered to our driveway in mid-April so that it might carry us to South Carolina for a spring break visit to the new home of my oldest brother and then, a few days later, to Philadelphia for a pre-Easter romp through a Marvel superheroes exhibit at the Franklin […]

Conversations in Cars with Bloggers

I’ve known Leticia for a while. She’s brilliant, kind, and lovely. We’ve chatted quite a bitĀ over the years but those chats, sadly, were ever only in passing — between keynote speeches and roundtable discussions at parenting conferences usually; the act of catching up squeezed into the crevices of a dense […]

A Long Weekend in a 2019 Chevy Silverado With Christmas Trees and Heated Blankets

Big thanks to Chevy for the 2019 Silverado loaner and for arranging a lovely late fall morning at our local tree farm. We were able to get a big ol’ Christmas tree, cut it down ourselves, and safely get her home in the Silverado’s truck bed. I liked the power, […]

The Stinger Experience U.S. Tour Rolls On

The Stinger Experience U.S. Tour Rolls On It sounds like the name of a stadium rock band, and maybe it should be, but for now the Stinger Experience is your best chance to put a 365 horsepower twin-turbo V6 Kia Stinger GT through the paces on a professionally designed road […]

Reliable

It must’ve been two years ago now. Maybe three. I dunno, time gets to be a bit of a warp and unless I have a Red Wings Stanley Cup (it’s been a while) or a Spartans championship (even longer) as a date & time stamp of semi-permanent ink upon my […]
