Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


I have a particular set of skills...

I love that scene in Taken where Liam Neeson tries to give the kidnappers a way out, by warning them about his 'particular set of skills...skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.'

I too, have a particular set of skills.  Need a nuclear power plant operated, or the water chemistry of said reactor tested?  Groovy.  Something sweet and tasty baked up, or a dinner for 8-10 prepped?  Give me a call.

Want a gift wrapped up pretty?  Maybe you need to go look somewhere else.  This time of year reminds me that I am one of those people for whom gift boxes and bags are created. 

Earlier this week, I tried to help my wife out by wrapping a few presents that were going to my moms.  She received them today, and said it was very sweet of me to have my daughters help wrap the presents.

Except, they didn't. 

Oh well...at least I know the limitations of my set of skills...


  1. Hahahaha! This post made me laugh. That said, the Commander is not the best wrapper either, but I still LOVE the fact that he tries really hard :)
