One of the guys.

I grew up in a home with all women, but now I am outnumbered in my household by three to one. Today, I am the sole female in our home. When my boys were younger, I grew hoarse from trying to get them to sit still. I got frustrated with attempts to stop the symphony of bodily noises at the…

Sometimes my wife and I don’t see eye to eye. Such is the case when it comes to automobiles. To her, a car is just a mode of transportation—a way to get from point A to point B. To me, a car is not just a way to get down the road, but rather a vehicle for excitement. I love…
