My name is Tom Kenyon. I'm a 52 year old husband, (28 years, all to the same girl) and father of 3, ages 27, 20, and 6 (proving that God has a sense of humor). This is going to sound odd, but I'm…Continue
"I just picked up my first Parker 45 at the Atlanta Pen Show, and I can't put it down. Buy one now, before the collectors "discover" them, while they're less than half as much as a 51. I like that the 51 is fatter, but other than…"
"Fedoras look good on pretty much everyone. But Dann hit the nail on the head when he said it's all about confidence. You have to wear the hat, the hat can't "wear" you. If you feel odd and awkward, you'll look that way.…"

"With a divorce that fresh, he may still be in pain and the holidays will amp that. He may be burying his stress into work. My best suggestion is to point out to your beloved that people are twits and he may just be being silly.…"
"Regarding her feelings: listen, care, and don't fix her.

"You are certainly correct that there's not enough info for the wife to determine intent and extent. But the emotions she is feeling are still valid emotions (of course).
Good point about the red flags. There's a possibility that he may…"
"This could be a simple miscommunication. There isn't enough information here to determine whether there is a definite issue or not. Is the father actually going to be stateside during Christmas? Is your fiancee spending the…"
