  • Ahh… and here’s the stoic author at his Oregon dune retreat.  Very classy.  Almost like a windswept, epic Gandolf from Lord of the Rings… except in an ugly Xmas sweater… Well… not even close. Beyond my ugly Michigan sweater, I really appreciated the mugs at the house we rented up in Oregon.  “Not right Meow!”  C’mon… you can’t write this stuff!  Well, actually I’m hoping I can!  The book is really coming together.  We’ve pic

 

Stark Raving Dads are formed in the fiery forges of constant motion and catastrophe. With kids – we learn we may never have a free moment again, Mom no longer appreciates our sarcastic humor, and that we weren’t completely ready. But you are not alone! There are millions of Stark Raving Dads just like you – utilizing a strong sense of self-preservation, and conveniently overlooking loaded diapers.

 

This blog is my chance to share with other Stark Raving Dads. Its also a great spot to “test drive” new poems, spotlight the “challenges” of fatherhood, and ignore the peanut butter smudges on my armrests. My parental control is being tested everyday… and it all happens – right here!

So what’s next?  Well, beyond the candy canes stuck to the floor, the frantic on-line gift buying, and the grumpy, over-tired kids… I’m starting on the next book.  I think it’s gonna be called “Stop and Smell the Tinkle + Other Poems Pets Love”.  Yup, I’m looking forward to using my kids art again and writing about the......

  • And so another Thanksgiving has come and gone… We got to meet up with our cousins again, this time on the Oregon Coast. It was wet.  It was rainy.  It was wonderful.  We had a huge fireplace. Sadly, this pic with the kids was taken a few years back – and I realized how fast they’re growing up.  It still makes me laugh… check out those smiles!  Unfortunately, you realize how fast time goes by.  It seems like just yesterday I was wiping runny noses all through the Thanksgiving break.  And picking up stuffing out of the carpet.  But now, my kids are doing most of that stuff on their own(picking up their own spilled stuffing)! Of course, we got to watch all our cousins with their runny noses and spilled stuffing.  Not to mention the sand from the beach, tracked into the house… across the couch… up the stairs…into beds… and pretty much everywhere.
