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 […]

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.

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 […]
I was browsing Facebook when I came across a post from by bedridden wife, Mary. I read it. I winced and said to myself, “Oh, great. She’s motivated. That means more work for me.” Here’s part of her post, the part that worries me … “Since I’m sick and thanks to my swollen joints I […]
Had to take my wife Mary to Urgent Care. She had flu-like symptoms with this addition: Her knees were swollen and locked up on her. She could not straighten her knees. When she tried to walk, she was bent over so far she made Quasimodo look like he had good posture. At Urgent Care, she […]
We drove 13 hours from Tulsa to, well, not to our home. We drove from Tulsa to downtown Minneapolis because I had to cover the Vikings game at noon. We got there just in time for kickoff. Nice job by my 18-year-old son Sawyer guiding a truck and horse trailer through downtown traffic. I covered […]
