Chip on Your Shoulder

The 1970s were a funky time. During that decade, concoctions made in a lab rapidly started replacing the real thing. Disco music came onto the scene and keyboard synthesizers and drum machines were used in favor of traditional instruments. Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” became the first disco hit to use a completely synthesized background […]

It’s All Relative

Over the last several years, my family has really gotten into fishing. We love to go to my in-laws’ cottage and head out to Shawano Lake in search of northern pike. There’s nothing better than a fish fry with pike caught that day. While I’m getting better at cleaning fish, it’s a wonderful thing for […]

Urine Trouble

As a member of Generation X, I am a huge ‘Seinfeld’ fan. One classic episode features the gang going to the mall and losing their car in the parking ramp. After hours of searching, Jerry can’t hold it anymore and pees in the corner. Of course, he is busted by a security guard. To explain […]

Hopes of a Favorable Verdict Disappear

As many readers know, my dad was the inspiration for me to become a lawyer, but he was not alone. My other legal role model was none other than Mike Brady. In ‘The Brady Bunch’ episode, ‘The Fender Bender,’ Mr. Duggan backed his car into Carol’s at the supermarket. He then sued Carol, claiming the […]

An Ear for an Ear

When I was a kid, I used to take Flintstones Vitamins. I was a “Flintstone Kid – one million strong and growing.” The original vitamins came in shapes modeled after the cartoon’s characters, including Fred, Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone, Barney Rubble and Bamm-Bamm Rubble, Dino, The Great Gazoo, and the Flintstones’ car. The vitamins were […]

Without question, ‘Pulp Fiction’ is one of my favorite movies from the 1990s. The film follows Jules and Vincent, two hitmen played by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, and their misadventures in the Los Angeles underworld. The flick cemented Jackson as a certified star and relaunched Travolta’s career. The movie also features Bruce Willis, […]

Rubs the Wrong Way

I remember the beginning of 5th grade. When we got our list of needed school supplies, deodorant was on the list for the first time. Apparently, according to the Kimberly Area School District, 5th grade marked the time when boys started to stink. I remember feeling like a man when my mom took me to […]

About Time

My daughter is away at her first year of college, and I miss her terribly. That’s why when she comes home for the weekend, I get as much out of every moment with her as possible. She came last weekend, which was awesome. We went out for sushi, went for a walk, and watched about […]

Fine Print

In my career, I’ve probably read over 10,000 legal documents, such as wills, trusts, contracts, offers to purchase, briefs, motions, petitions and court orders. That’s why, after a long day, I like to sit on my comfy loveseat and read things like comic books or Star Wars novels. But even in my free time, I […]

Pretty Little Liar

When I was a kid, my parents were strict, but definitely fair. But one thing my mom would absolutely not tolerate was lying. If my sister or I ever got caught lying, we would get in huge trouble. We learned that early on, so we just didn’t do it (that, and the fact that my […]
