Thanksgiving: Then and Now

When I was younger I didn’t realize what Thanksgiving really meant. I was taught as a young boy the importance of saying “thank you” when someone did something nice for me. Proper manners never escaped me growing up with my father. He made sure I realized the importance of showing proper respect and courtesy, especially…

Declines and Inclines

I’m writing from “Hotlanta” Georgia! We’re here for the Luke Combs and Eric Church charity concert at Mercedes Benz Stadium on Sunday night. We’re just strolling around The Battery area today, perhaps even getting a little Christmas shopping done. No plan, just a quick little escape exploring a new town before the concert! I’ve been…

Day 4, Let it Come, Lake Tahoe Day 2!

Murph and I spent our 2nd full day at Lake Tahoe yesterday. Three words came to mind throughout the day: Expectations, Children and Fear…. First, I booked Zip Lining at 12 o’clock. When leaving my hotel room and hopping on a Lime scooter, I looked to the West and quickly realized a storm was brewing….
