Killing Lincoln

Today’s post is a little different.  I am part of a reading group that read books and shares our thoughts together in a Facebook Group.  My first book for this group was “Killing Lincoln” by O’Reilly and Dugard.    I hope you enjoy my brief review of this fantastic...

Sticking around

Being Dad

I enjoy being Dad. Catching my daughter on a tropical morning in the Philippines and giving her first bath. Walking in endless circles with her through the night as she refused to sleep… One her second birthday thinking to myself, “She’s 10% of the way to 20; hope this...
