My daughter’s end of kindergarten celebration was this morning. I knew it was going to be rough, emotionally speaking, because my my son’s pre-K graduation, several years ago, was heavy on the theatrics, like a funeral for royalty or a world renowned pop star.

A column about columns

Rick Ryckeley’s column will return next week.

He’s been a little under the weather but I’ll leave him to tell you the details. I would hate to rob him of several weeks of column material because I know that writing a weekly column is hard to do.

Joining the club

My best friend and his wife are having a baby this spring. I am excited for them because being a parent has been an amazing and eye-opening experience for me. I am also excited because he now gets to join the club. The club of parents is an unofficial club.

I remember hearing ads for DragonCon on the radio several years ago and thinking, “Nerds!!” It conjured up images in my head of Trekkies giving each other the “Live long and prosper” hand signal and middle-aged men hovering over old comic books. It just didn’t sound like my type of party.

I had the unenviable task of writing a Mother’s Day column for this week’s paper. I say unenviable because I just didn’t want to write about how much I love my Mom (lots) or what a good mother Sabine, my wife, is (a great one). I feel like I’ve been there and done that.
