Dock Me Pay

Alas, no essay will be forthcoming tonight. We returned from vacation yesterday and my brother stopped by in town on his way back from performing in the Peninsula Music Marathon Festival, (see here @ Principal Oboe). He’s stopped by our homely domicile for on his way back home to Florida.

Tomorrow, I’m embarking on a new “feature” which will probably take me at least 6 months to burrow through. I’ve made it a condition for my two daughters (still both under 13) that in order to embark on the enterprise known as “dating” that they must first read (and worse … discuss with me) topic and notions which arise on reading Wing to Wing (banner advert/link below). This is a collection of readings and thoughts on courtship, marriage, and dating. Monday nights I’m going to write an essay as I work my wok my way carefully through the book. After gathering them in a “topic” heading, I figure that at the very least my essays can serve as a resource for them and hopefully your comments/our discussions as well.

  1. Woohoo!

    I’ve been saving all of my thoughts on these issues, but I’m starting to get to the point where I’m ready to turn them loose on the world. I’ve read through a number of the essays in this book (at your suggestion at GBC1!), so I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it!

    Wow. How’d that go over? 🙂

    JA,
    Well, they’re 10 and 12 … and the eldest is very shy so dating hasn’t come up yet as a thing either wants to do. I’m hoping that by setting up the requirement years in advance it won’t be a surprise.

    I think I won’t really know how it “worked” for a decade or more.
