Introduction I'm one of the luckiest people who've ever lived. My Mom and Dad loved each other and devoted their lives to each other and to me, my brother and sister. I met the love of my life when I was only 20 years old and had sense enough to know it. We've raised two great kids of our own, Jen, my blogging partner and our son Doug. Doug and Jen married Scott and Melodye, both of whom we love very much and couldn't have done better if we'd picked them ourselves. I started out practicing law, which I grew to dislike as a business and stumbled into teaching law, which I dearly love. Like I said, I'm the luckiest person who ever lived.
Interests Family and friends, story telling, nature, law, medicine, history, politics (seasonal, usually), travel, animals, and anything that makes me laugh.
