An amazing thing happened last weekend. My son, who just turned 10 in April, was invited to a birthday/pool party with a bunch of his friends. There was approximately 16 boys his age there, plus many parents. Unfortunately, I was not there, which as you'll hear, will NEVER be the situation again.

Here is something I wrote about men and I hope you can enjoy it before Father's Day. Too much of the subtext of our life pokes fun at the expense of men. What a pity - they are so much fun!
