The Living Room

One of my favorite shows to rewatch is The Goldbergs. I'm not sure what it is about this sitcom that gets me. I know that a lot of people out there will throw on Friends or The Office not necessarily to watch, but to have on a background noise. Especially during all this pandemic and … Continue reading The Living Room

Light and Sound

When I was a kid, my grandparents (on Dad's side) lived in a house in a neighborhood that was located behind a high school.

But the way I remember things being back in … Continue reading Light and Sound

He Would Have Been 66 Today

That would have to be the surprise party she received for her 30th birthday. Let the record show: I did not receive a surprise birthday party when I turned … Continue reading The Evidence Speaks for Itself

Question of the Week #28

What is your most treasured memory? I'm not a huge sports fanatic by any stretch of the imagination. But my most treasured memory has a lot to do with baseball. During the summer after my junior year of college, I had the opportunity to take my Dad on a whirlwind adventure that allowed us to … Continue reading Question of the Week #28
