Gordon tells me I need to pimp myself more, because, well, he thinks you all should be reading my column at Mountain Xpress, if you aren't already, so here is this week's, where I explain how much I learned about raising kids from going to puppy obedience school. It's pretty funny, I think.

Anyway, I love writing these "parenting" columns, although I will tell you, and you only, that's it's some of the most difficult writing I've ever done.

I spend all week thinking about what I'm going to write, then all day Thursday writing it, rewriting it, and throwing most of it away, then all day Friday editing, revising, making my friends and family proofread it, then I file it so I can spend the weekend trying not to worry about what I'm going to write about the next week.

Anyway, I'm not asking for pity here. I am asking you to read. Please. Give me feedback. If you hate it, that's okay, though I prefer the good doggies. I'm learning here.

Thanks and happy weekend!

your columns have had a good tone and to me read as a well established fixture ie you've been doing it for years. however your research team dropped the ball i think a few weeks back. specifically the duct tape dept. i believe you would have to fold a piece of duct tape for sticky side to attach to both wall and object to be hung. i may have missed something, but if i am right this was not clear in yr column.
