May Mini Vay-Cay

Hello Folks!

My May mini vay-cay was something I have NEVER done before…..LASER TAG!  What;s that you ask?  Laser Tag is a game of tag people play in a semi-lit arena with obstacles.  You “tag” players or other objects using a hand-held “gun” that emits infrared light.  Players wear a vest or other gear that has targets on it.  When you hit a target, it changes color and you get points.  You also get points for tagging objects in the arena.

Marriage Isn’t For You

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.
