Finally saw “The Intern.” The theater was nearly packed, which is impressive considering the movie has been out for a week. Based on comments I heard as we walked out of the theater, everybody loved it. At the risk of sounding like a movie critic, the movie was smart, funny and poignant. And Robert De […]
I am perturbed. Here’s why: Some cowardly D-Bag used my wife Mary’s name to post crap on some half-ass radio bitchfest site. I named him the D-Bag of the Day on The BS Show because this D-Bag didn’t have the seeds to use his own name. It’s real easy to post critical comments when you’re […]
It used to be the only thing that disappeared in my house was socks. You’d put two in the washer and/or dryer and only one would survive. Who knows what happened to the other sock? Do you know? If you do, please drop me a line and drop off the other sock. Now that […]
There was a bottle of Diet Coke on the dining room table. Not one of the big ones. Not one of the small ones, either. It was mid-sized — 33.8 fluid ounces. Somebody had already cracked it open and drank some. I figured it was one of the kids. They’re always cracking open Diet Cokes, […]
My 9-year-old Shane was relentless. Again. He always is wanting something. His latest want is a go-cart. “Can I have it?” he asked, oh, about 15,000 times an hour. Meantime, my 13-year-old son Spencer also was relentless. I was getting relentlessness in stereo. “I need a haircut,” Spencer said, slightly fewer than 15,000 times in […]
Ragnar broke his self-imposed silence over the weekend and talked to any media outlet that would listen. He made sure to let all know he still wants to patrol the sidelines during Vikings games. He also made sure to let all know he didn’t know what he was doing when it came to negotiations. The […]
Enchanted Hollow King Zebulon, aka Zeb, won eight national championships at Shetland Congress in July and another six at AMHR Nationals this month, giving him a whopping 53 national titles since 2010. On our way home from Tulsa and AMHR Nationals, I mentioned to my wife Mary that I would love to track down a […]
You know what I love about writing a blog post? There are no rules. The blog post can be as long or as short as I want. Like today. It’s short.
Yesterday was Daughter’s Day. Oops. Nobody told me. Nobody told me it was Daughter’s Day. And nobody told me such a day even existed. Now that I know: Happy belated Daughter’s Day to my daughters, Sami and Sienna. And let me also wish them a Happy Daughter’s Day for 2016, just in case I forget […]
I’m the writer in the family, but I could not have written a better tribute than my wife Mary did for my 9-year-old son Shane’s horse Frosty. Here it is … A couple of years ago, Kelly Grapentin Nelson and Katelyn entrusted Shane with an absolutely wonderful 26-year-old quarter horse named Frosty. Katelyn was ready […]
