Outside of me, our boys, and her family, my wife loves three things: golf Golf and GOLF. She finally got me to begin…with “begin” being the operative word. Though this game doesn’t really suit my temperament, it is fun and quite difficult. Enjoy these short clips, in real time, slow-mo, and high speed of my wife’s swing, off the tee!
We spent a lovely day in Santa Barbara on May 23, 2013. My wife and her parents came up with me and my wife even appeared on my Radio Show in Segment 5. Then we had lunch and strolled along State Street where this video was taken with my iPhone.
Continuing my b-vlog reading of “The Empty-Nest Road Trip Blues: An Interactive Journal from A Dad’s Point-of-View,” we move on to Day Seven and our visit to Cleveland and the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Hours of video were taken on our cross-country road trip last summer, from Los Angeles to Boston, driving my son to begin his freshman year at college. It was an eventful road-trip, replete with break-downs, surprises, and flea-bag motels. Enjoy some of the highlights in this short 8-minute video of the top sites!
This is yet another video from my book, The Empty-Nest Road Trip Blues: An Interactive Journal from A Dad’s Point-of-View. My son and I had just finished driving 3000 miles in eight days, from Los Angeles to Boston. Upon arriving at our hotel, we saw swarms of people with tattoos arriving, as we learned, for The Boston Tattoo Convention. My son quickly left me to meet up with friends and I decided to crash the tattoo convention. The experience proved incredibly eye-opening and I had such a good time with the people that I returned again that night. I turned out to be “the alien” among all present at the Boston Tattoo Convention plus I get a lesson in judgments – don’t make ‘em! Enjoy all these tattoos and cool people.
My son and I drove from Los Angeles to Boston in late August/early September of 2012. You might call it a Road Trip. We did it in 8 days, but you only have to watch 3,000 miles in 3 minutes. We had so many adventures, but this will at least give you a taste! It’s all documented in my new ebook.
