We played our last Upward game this afternoon, and yes, it was Crazy Hair Day again.

Hey, what’s tougher-looking than a mohawk with a bald spot?

Can’t say enough about how important this ministry is to me, and how it blesses me many times over the amount of commitment it requires. I wish my assistant coach had been here for the photo too, but he had an out-of-town Scholar’s Bowl tournament.

This is my third mohawk. I need a new do for next season.

Last Friday at its peak. Tomorrow should be considerably more impressive.

Saintseester and I have long laughed at The Weather Channel’s ridiculous practice of naming winter storms, because a) the names aren’t necessary; and b) absolutely no one uses them. ‘Seester had the awesome idea of naming them after breakfast cereals. So, we’re expecting Winter Storm Cheerios tomorrow.

You see kids, hurricanes need names because they are renegades. No one’s quite sure what they’re going to do, and there might be more than one at a time. Winter storms are just the normal weather pattern. They’re lines of thunderstorms, but cold. Are we going to name thunderstorms next? (Maybe I shouldn’t say that too loudly…)

So, tonight is the first night this winter that we’ve really been able to enjoy the threat of inclement weather properly. School and work are already closed, so we can go to bed without setting an alarm, look forward to sit-down breakfast, and so forth. Aaron’s excited about breaking out the chessboard after the pancake dishes are in the dishwasher.

Sounds good to me, big man.

I’ve said pretty much all I have to say about gay marriage here and here. I’ve had it settled to myself for decades—intellectually, morally, emotionally, spiritually—and I hope this divisive and […]

This is Nathan’s sweet girl Molly. We adopted her two years ago. Our vet guesses she’s a cocker spaniel-boxer mix, which looks right, but for some reason Lea gets mad when I call her a “boxacock.” At first, Molly was going to spend the majority of her days outside. Then, Molly was going to be […]

On February 9, 2015, committed gay couples married in Alabama for the first time. I hope we will look back on this date as the moment we began to feel this page turn in earnest. I hope outspoken conservative leaders recognize the harm in continued resistance, and realize that if they can’t agree, they should […]
