The Real TMI

Little Brother has been lecturing me on and off for a couple of years about how much I share on social media. His biggest complaint comes in the form of a question: “What do I know about you that isn’t on Facebook?” And his second biggest complaint is “Why do I have to read about something that happened to you on Facebook first? Why can’t I hear about it from you BEFORE you post on social media?” Honestly, there are times I think he wants me to tell him something that happened before it even…

Earning An Honorable New Title

Little Brother Eddie flew in this past weekend for reasons I cannot divulge, except to say it had something to do with the upcoming book. In any case, he had one request: “I want to go to Frankenmuth.” I asked why. “I want to go get noodles from the restaurant we ate at last time, and I want to stop off at the outlet mall.” I asked why. “Because I like the noodles.” I didn’t mean that part of the reason. “Oh, I want to shop for some clothes for my niece and nephew.”

LB’s niece is…

A lesson about establishing closeness and a subsequent story

When my oldest nephew was two, a couple of years before J was born, my wife and I went on vacation with her parents, her sister and husband, and my nephew. We rented a house at the beach in North Carolina for a week. I was not yet a parent but was anxious to become one and I had always liked kids, so I spent a lot of time that week playing with my very cute nephew.



I think my sister in law was pregnant with her second son on that vacation. Once I had two nephews, I saw the boys on… Continue

I Might As Well Be In Uzbekistan

I was looking out of the kitchen window this morning as I washed a couple of glasses reflecting on how different the process is in one’s home as compared to a restaurant or bar, wondering how the neighbors wash their glasses.

We live at the end of a short street and after eight years are not friends with any of the neighbors by mutual agreement.  With the possible exception of the Hispanic family at the other end who might have voted Democrat, I’m sure the rest of the street voted…
