Quick life sum up: I'm 44 (really have to shake my head at that one), been married to the wonderful former Bonnie Stonebraker for 14-plus year, and have one child, young son Casey, who's 10. Not that it defines him, but Casey is autistic...hence the title of the wife's blog. My wife does a far better job encapsulating the day-to-day victories and frustrations of parenting an autistic child, so I probably won't make this the focal point of my writings. Obviously, though, it will be part of the blog.
Other things...I'm an editor for a corporate magazine (there will be typos...I'm only flesh and blood). I drive one hour a day just to get to work, so forgive me if I'm cranky at times. I enjoy music of all kinds, playing basketball, exercising (be prepared to be regaled by stories of the wife and I tackling Turbo Jam), following the Detroit Tigers, Michigan State Spartans, Detroit Pistons and Red Wings, and movies of all genres. Fears include rats, stuffed cabbage and challenging home improvement projects.
So there it is...I've bored you enough for one sitting. Stay tuned in coming days for more from the poorly put-together desk (Ikea, of course) of your new favorite reporter.
