I can't think of anything that has happened this year that … Continue reading Wildfire Bitter Friday Giftures

Supplemental Bitter Saturday Giftures

  I recently got a new job (so weird for me I know) and it is helping with social media for a supplement company (you know, for weight lifters).

Donation Station Bitter Friday Giftures

  As many stores closed in mid-March for the epidemic and we were forced to stay home, many crazy things started happening.

The Matrix Bitter Friday Giftures

  It seems to me that the Matrix hasn't been working very well lately.  There must be some sort of glitch that is causing some really unbelievable things.

Back Pain Ben Bitter Friday Giftures

  I have a lot of pain, in a lot of places, all over. I guess that is the fun part of aging.

If only my family stayed in hotels … Continue reading Back Pain Ben Bitter Friday Giftures

20/20 Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was in my early 30's, I was still wearing glasses, as I had been since I was 17.

Turns out I'm … Continue reading 20/20 Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

So Dramatic Bitter Friday Giftures

  My wife and I talk about the debate between nature vs. nurture a lot. Probably because we have one child that is biological and one who is adopted.
