Holy crap, I guess I am competitive!

Not to toot my own horn, but, the other week I did my part for humanity and donated a pint of blood (thank you, thank you, hugs and kisses), and in the act of squirting out the red stuff, I kinda’ came to the conclusion, gee, I am competitive. I, Donald P. (for Pugnacious) Rush, […]

So, what about fathers, Part Deux?

Last week I wrote about what dads think about themselves and what society also thinks of men. Walking Paychecks. That’s what most men think of themselves as — providers — and, that is about it.
