Just south of San Luis Obispo, there is a stretch of beach for the family who likes to rough it and ride ATVs. This Labor Day weekend. Friends and I took off to Pismo for family camping. It’s become a bit of a tradition. We load up our trucks and SUVs and head for the […]
Middle-aged men tend make dating an exercise in boredom. They become so comfortable that the forget women are just getting warmed up.
Many years ago, when I started using ride share apps, I felt a twinge of guilt not calling a taxi. There was two reasons at that time I didn’t want a taxi. The first is that they were never where I needed one when I needed one, and I didn’t want to talk to a […]
My friend and I spent the weekend in Vegas. During one of our conversations, she said she didn’t understand why people seem to be dating with contingencies or backups.

Lost in TRANSition Diary Entry The Other Parent (OP) “It’s a delicate art.” She said. That was my former spouse’s response to my indelicate question about how he/she hid her junk in the bikini he/she was wearing. It was the moment I realized that she was no longer ever going to be he again. Nor […]
