I have one wish for my birthday. Ok, maybe two

With my birthday coming up in just a little over a month, I’m sure many of you have been racking your brain trying to decide what to get for me. Well, let me make it easy for you . . . For years now, I’ve had one birthday wish. Well, one main one, and a…

The burger quest orders a pizza

I love searching for the Best Cheeseburger in the World. But sometimes that quest takes a turn into a pizza parlor. And one of my favorites is Main Street Pizza in El Dorado. That’s where my son and I went recently for his birthday. It’s one of his favorite places too. They cook their pizzas…

My daughter’s birth . . . or mouth-watering barbecue?

Most guys will do almost anything to be present at the birth of their first child. But me? Well, I almost missed my daughter being born so that I could eat barbecue. Ok, I’ll admit, it is delicious, mouth-watering, lick-your-fingers good barbecue. But still . . . The due date for my daughter was originally…

My last day

I’m sure when some readers saw that title, there was a collective Wooohoooo! No more blog posts! But not that kind of last day. Last week, when I was coming in from a long night after broadcasting football, I was battling a bad headache. Again. I’ve had several lately, but this one seemed especially bad.…

10 years old . . . in the blink of an eye

Today is my son’s 10th birthday. And it’s really hard to believe. Yesterday was his last day in single digits. He told me that no fewer thanĀ 283 times over the past week. Today, he moves into double digits. And as my son told me yesterday, “Ten years . . . where did the time go?”…

He’s willing to die for the king, but . . .

My son and I had an interesting conversation the other day. If you’ve read the blog before, you’ve probably come to realize that almost every conversation with my son is interesting. It turns out my son’s class is studying medieval times, and he has really enjoyed it. He’s enjoyed it so much that he thinks…

My daughter and the REALLY BIG BOWL

My kids are great (ok, I might be a bit biased here). They’re both very smart, and funny, and all that good stuff. But one thing my kids have never been great at is looking for stuff. For example, you could send my son into an empty room containing just one toy, and he would…

My son . . . real estate mogul?

There’s something that’s been going on at my house that I’ve been hesitant to write about. I find it . . . hmmmmm . . . disturbing. There’s really no other word for it. Over the last few weeks, my son has expressed an interest in, how shall I say this, pretty much owning the…

The Cheeseburger Quest continues

I’ve had several people ask me if I’ve found that “perfect” cheeseburger. Well, as always, I’m still on my quest for the Best Cheeseburger in the World. And I’ve got one you need to try. In the small town of Rosston, Ark., I love to stop at Barr’s Junction, a little country store situated right…

My son and the robots

“Have you heard about the robot class?” That’s been the question lately – the Robotics Class. After school the other day, my son practically flew off the bus and and was brimming with excitement. There was going to be a robotics class offered at his school each week after school. And he wanted to be…
