The Reverend

My brother Colin is in California this weekend officiating his buddy Dave’s wedding.  Apparently California has a program called “Deputy For A Day” by which anybody can get a single day license to oversee a wedding.  How cool is that? Church weddings are great but not everybody chooses to go that route and if you […]


I can’t say that I am well prepared for the end of the world, but if the world really ends how prepared does one really need to be? I tried hard the last couple of days to convince my customers to order extra material just in case some event over the weekend screws up our […]

New Dress Use: Jeep Soft Top

A few weeks ago I received a nice note from Shannon Willits – a fellow survivor of divorce who had relocated to Tucson and had visited my blog. He said he liked what I was up to and suggested I use my ex-wife’s wedding dress as a patch for a damaged screen door . . […]

One Year Bloggiversary

It was a year ago today that my buddy Greg told me my I-Web blog sucked in the back of his warehouse near downtown Tucson.  He thought the content was good but knowing a bit more about the workings of the internet than I do he told me I needed to step it up and […]

My Ex-Wife Is Crazy Dot Com

I am not insinuating anything with this post. Some guys started a site for guys to vent about their ex-wives. I support self-help forums and I think it’s funny. And they sent me a t-shirt – I’m cheap – and I like free stuff. You can check out their noble cause at Happy Valentine’s […]

Dress Use #72: Place Mat

I have decided that I am going to complete my 101 dress applications without washing the dress. I was able to execute a couple of applications like tea bag and baby sling with the dress as is. The baby that was slung survived and so did the consumer of the tea, me. The dress is […]

Dress Use #71: Moving Blanket

In my last post I talked about how enjoyable Christmas was this year and how much more settled my kids were a year and a half removed from my split with their mom. My daughter said it was the best Christmas ever but I think part of that was because she received the gift she […]

Dress Use #70: Wood Pile Cover

My new year is in full swing and there are a lot of things going on. It is off to a good start. The holidays this year treated me very well. The Christmas before was the first for me and my kids after my divorce. We tried to make the best of it and it […]

Merry Christmas

Yeah – I’m cheating and reposting some old pictures. Tis the season to be insanely busy and short on time. I thought I might fire up the E-card tonight and send it to all my family and friends. That may or may not happen. I actually have some quality Christmas pictures I’m stashing in my […]

Dress Use #68: Dog Sling

I put up my Christmas lights Thanksgiving weekend. I do enjoy the holidays even though they can be a bit overwhelming at times. There is really only one thing the holidays involve that I could do without completely – glitter. I have had a fear of glitter most of my adult life. The way it […]
