I have many more pix of him of course. But my son, Evan, 18, who's here this weekend with me and who is 18, has broken up with his first serious girlfriend.
I felt very protective of her and wanted their relationship to succeed -- she is SUCH a beautiful girl -- but she and he recently broke up. I feel badly about this, but it is the way of the world.

We two are very close. I coached him in baseball, for example, and tried to get him to love sports the way I do. But he didn't have the personality or talent for it. What he DOES have is acting and singing as an interest.
He has never had the atletic interest or skills of his dad. But that's OK. We both share the same interest in laughing at The Family Guy, among other things. And we do just fine.

My son doesn't have a care in the world and can spend time on the crucial job of becoming a man. And that's OK.


  1. Bonus...he's got a dad who genuinely likes and respects women.

    You're both fortunate to have each other, in my opinion.

  2. You never forget your first love and your first heart break. But like you wisely said, That's life. We live, we learn, we will move on much wiser and more aware.

    MJ's right. You have an excellent relationship with your children. You are a great example to them of what a good human being is supposed to be and what a great person you are to help guide them to find their place in the world.

    Thanks Man. Hope all's well in Texas. My son, sometimes to his chagrin, is learning what can sometimes be life's cruel lessons. And he's laufging with me at Family Guy. I'm not sure which is actually clser to reality.

  4. MJ: He'd BETTER like and respect women! They only formate more than half the population. But their beauty, intelligence and ability to put things in perspective -- plus a whole lot of other things -- tend to make living life a beautiful thing.

  5. I'm so sorry for his heartbreak.

  6. Hi Anna!! So is he. But she was so uncertain all the time and I think it was too much for his little Boy brain. Duhh!!!
