Parenthood, I miss you already.
Your final episode sits in denial on my DVR, as if not erasing it will bring back the series next season.
You Bravermans were that perfectly imperfect clan — often close to imploding but always ending up even closer together.
I’ll miss the endless baseball games and backyard gatherings under the twinkly lights. Everyone singing or dancing for some reason or other. And giving sudiences the first indepth conversation about Asperger’s syndrome on network TV.
Over your six seasons, my obsession with characters morphed and changed with the storylines. But I will always love Julia and Joel, and be grateful for the addition of Hank, because Ray Romano is a wonderful dramatic actor (which I discovered in Men of a Certain Age) and I loved what he brought to Parenthood.
I’m rambling because I hate to say goodbye. Let’s just say, “See ya later…”
Because I will be watching again soon.

Your life is a reflection of how you sleep, and how you sleep is a reflection of your life. — Dr. Rafael Pelayo

For your consideration…
May I submit a nomination for the
2015 Parents of the Year?
I know it’s early yet, but I believe this couple from Fayetteville, North Carolina is a serious contender…and I say this without my typical sarcasm or sass.
Why do I hold them in such high esteem?
When grainy, black-and-white video of an electronics store robbery was broadcast on their local TV station on New Year’s Eve, this man and woman recognized two of the burglars as their 14- and 16-year old sons…
And actually turned them in to police!
How many people today can say they would do the same? Make their kids face up to their crime? Take responsibility? Not sweep it under the rug and ‘promise to do better next time?’
These parents are nameless in the press — because their children are minors — but they are celebrities to me.
Rockin’ it old school…and one day their kids will appreciate what they did.

Pretty darn warm, huh?

Happy Birthday to my amazing cockapoo dog Rory!
At 16 years young, you’re still the leader of the pack.
