The Dumber Years

A collection of stories from my childhood, inspired by spending hours watching “The Wonder Years” on The Hub.


A lot of “news” has focused on the sexual harassment in Hollywood. Then there were the social media hashtags of “#metoo.” It got me thinking of reflecting on my own life. Had I ever been sexually harassed? My initial thought was no, but today I thought more about it. The more I thought about it, […]

[14] That’s Not Bill Cosby, That’s My Dad

It’s Father’s Day again. So, this year I thought I’d blog a bit about my dear old dad. When I was a kid, I thought I had the meanest dad on the planet. When my sister and I would fight, his face in the doorway and his death stare was enough to make us freeze […]

[27] Trashy Summertime Fun

Ah summer. As an adult, I am not a big fan of it — the heat, the congestion on the freeway as the exit to the beaches near, the depression of not fitting into a teeny tiny bikini. As a kid, though, it brought to mind some great memories. If my summer memories as a […]
