And so, my friends, once again we find ourselves sharing our home with a member of the household who walks around naked all day and pees freely in the yard.
No, it's not me (thankfully). It's Indy (like Indiana Jones), our new female German Shepherd who bears more than a little resemblance to a wolf, but is gentle as a lamb.
Actually, I have to admit that I have some doubts that she's really a dog, because of the following observations:
1. She hasn't attempted to eat my children.
2. She hasn't attempted to eat me, my wife, or any of our friends.
3. She hasn't attempted to eat our shoes, socks, or furniture.
4. She hasn't destroyed our home.
Well, at least not so far.
So after months of research...

It was sometime around 7pm on Friday December 21st, 2012 when I got the news. Our family had just sat down for our traditional Friday night dinner, and the phone rang. I walked over to the kitchen and answered the call, though I'm not sure why I did, considering that usually I would not have interrupted dinner with the family.
I could see the call was from a blocked number, which is unusual.
"This is David," I said in a somewhat formal tone, not knowing if it was a business or personal call.

Yes, it's true, friends and family. In my spare time, which is mostly at night and on weekends, I've been writing adventure/mystery novels, and have now completed my first two books in the series.
The Mason Dexter Adventure Series
is about a middle-school boy named Mason Dexter, who builds amazing gadgets and uses them to defeat assorted crooks and bullies. The series chronicles Mason's adventures together with his best friends Ron and Cheezer, and his faithful dog Pokey.
Of course, it's no coincidence that the main characters are in middle-school, considering that our children are around the same age and I wrote these books primarily for them to enjoy.
In the first book, Mason Dexter: The Original Adventure
, Mason, Ron, and Cheezer discover weapons hidden in a...

Three... Two... One... And we're back! Back to school, that is. The Sweet Sweetheart is now a fifth grader and the Good Boy has now started a new school, as he began middle school today.
Starting a new school is rarely easy for kids, and this is the second new school the Good Boy has attended in a year. Last year, we made the switch from private school to public school and it was an excellent move, and an extremely easy transition for both our children. In fact, just last night, out of the blue, the Good Boy thanked me for making the switch.
But the new school he attended only goes through fifth grade and now, a year later, he's starting middle school pretty...
