Overview Interview

If you happen to be stumbling onto my website for the first time . . . here is a pretty good summary of how I got here. Thanks for checking out my site.

All I Want For Christmas Are Healthy Baby Boys

I haven’t been great about keeping up with this blog – and the reason is because I’m in a totally different place than I was when I started it. Also – I retired my ex-wife’s wedding some time ago. I still cannot get over how well made that thing is and I will never understand […]

Divorce From Hell

I received an email today from a guy I have something in common with.  He too inherited his ex-wife’s wedding dress.  Terry’s ex-wife might have even been trying to send a stronger message than mine.  Seemingly she took the dress out of its preservation box and hung it up in the closet of a home […]

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 […]

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 […]
