  • Late Christmas shopping is for the birds

    Being a husband is tough!
    Normally when I start out a column with a statement like that, readers tend to sit back and get a laugh out of the paragraphs that follow, which tend to house some kind of funny story about my still-young married life.
    This however, has nothing to do with a funny story about Abby and I. In fact, it could be a true testament for all husbands during any special occasion, especially Christmas.
    I tell myself every year that I will not wait until the last second before I wrap up my Christmas shopping for Abby Jo.

  • Reunion stories are the best

    I love a good reunion story.
    A few years ago The New York Times ran a story about then-New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel and a young man named John Mathieson.
    Thirty-four years prior to Fassel and his wife Kitty meeting Mathieson they had been 19 and unmarried — and the parents of a baby boy whose birth and adoption they kept secret from all but their immediate families.
    And for 34 years, every April 5 the Fassels privately wished their baby boy a Happy Birthday, adding, “Wherever you are, we hope you’re OK.”
