Husband, Dad, Lawyer, Astronaut. Just kidding on that last one, though I did go to Space Camp. Twice.

Yep, that's me above. Husband. Dad. Lawyer. Astronaut. Just kidding on that last one, though I did go to Space Camp. Twice. There's proof in the picture below.

As you'll see in "How I'm Thinking of Starting my Autobiography," I wanted to be an astronaut. My older brother, though, used to tell people I once said I wanted to be Wonder Woman when I grew up. He still tells people that. Okay, I'll own it. She's awesome.

Anyway, I'm glad you're here, and I hope you'll take time to look around. You'll definitely find some good-natured banter here. That comes with my name. But there's much more that comes with it, too. Just like Tom Hanks' character in Big (named Josh, by the way), I've gotten older way too quickly. I suppose a lot of you feel the same way. Many of my posts and poems here are about that very subject. You'll also see a lot about my kids. They're frequent, and sometimes even willing, subjects for me.

If you're looking for a starting place, start with the banter, which brings me back to my wanting to be an astronaut. You'll find that story HERE. I hope you'll check it out, that you'll stay for its punchline, and that you'll stay for the other posts and poems, too. If something moves you, please feel free to drop me a line.

And, of course, thank you for reading.
