Missouri River Bikini Hatch

I just got back from an entire week of fishing the Missouri River near Craig, Montana. 6 days floating in a pontoon boat and tossing flies to healthy wild trout with a few buddies did wonders for my soul. I wish there was a way to take a trip like that more than once a […]

Isabella’s Ice Cream

Ashley and I planned our backyard wedding last year in 9 days (no she wasn’t pregnant or marrying me to avoid deportation) and had our hands full. When my cousin Dominic and his wife Kristel generously offered to serve ice cream from their awesome electric Model T ice cream truck we were thrilled. Not only […]

Happy Birthday MC Hammer

The great MC Hammer turned 50 yesterday.  I’m a day late in getting this up.  I put together a little video a while back wearing some Hammer pants that I made from my ex-wife’s wedding dress.  I’m a very bad dancer.  I can’t touch MC Hammer’s moves.  

Ashley Will You Marry Me . . . On Facebook?

My life is mostly complete. I remarried last June. My book came out last fall. I’m very busy selling boxes these days. I just moved into a bigger home with my bigger blended family. At the end of the day when my head hits the pillow and reflect on where I’m at there is really […]

Tucson Festival of Books

This weekend almost 500 authors are in Tucson for our Festival of Books. The event is huge. I lucked out and get to present at the event on Saturday the 10th at the UofA bookstore from 1:00-2:00. I will be hanging out after the presentation to sign books. There is a possibility – if I […]

My Retirement Community

I received this e-mail this week from my neighborhood association.  It is just too good to keep to myself.  I essentially live in a retirement community in the Tucson suburbs.  90% of the homes in my neighborhood are owned by retirees with small fancy dogs.  Watch out for the guy walking my neighborhood with his […]

Getting Married in Arizona

Last year Ashley and I were trying to figure out how we were going to get married.  We really just wanted to be married and didn’t want to make a big production of it.  Neither of us had the time or the desire to plan a big wedding, but of course there were people near […]

Be The Man

There are plenty of resources for women out there that are planning their big day.  After all the big day is all about the bride right?  Well – not exactly.  We play a part too ladies and I believe that the first resource in the history of mankind for men on the subject is now […]

Happy New Year

I’m beat – not because I consumed too much eggnog over the holidays or because I decided to start the New Year with a mile of burpees (yes that is 1 mile of burpees . . . burpee then broad jump and repeat for 1 hour and 53 minutes) but because the holidays require so […]

Match.com

Ashley and I got married in June.  We met on Match.com.  In my book I shared our Match.com story.  Match.com caught wind of it and they contacted me.  Check out the t-shirts they sent us.  If you find love on Match.com you too can get Match.com t-shirts. Online dating is an interesting phenomenon.  Truth be […]
