Dad Leaves, Mr. Tiggs Arrives

There were no dogs in my bed the last two nights. WEIRD. Also, I wish EVERYONE could have had what my Dad has given me. 

A definite peer of Barry in Dad-dom, is Mr. Andre Tiggs. He's an instructor for PS419, a public safety program taught at Bowsher to get students interested in police, fire, etc jobs.

Andre is a BIG mental health, with much admiration for NAMI. His daughter has made multiple suicide attempts. 

Please enjoy today's episode and if pass along to any TPS students you may think have interest in the program.

My Dad, Barry, Visits With Us

Come join the NAMI event this Saturday beginning a little before 11 at their new Secor location.

Are we a bowling town?

Lots of stories and perspectives with my Dad.

Hiding in the closet, him fighting a ticket for me and being disrespecting by Philly police, how I wound up in therapy when I was a little boy, how NOW is different and maybe just as bad as when he grew up.

Him wondering I'll be unpartnered forever. 

I hope you enjoy this (my Dad will say it's costing me a lot to have him) but more than anything now, this is for posterity and the ages.

Toledo Taco + Margarita Festival

This could be bigger and more outrageous than the GAF.

Who is going to Hamilton?

I have a completely plausible Britney theory.

Alex's rent may skyrocket.

Planet Fitness has a nationwide grammar issue.

The racial rampage in Buffalo.

Toledo Doesn’t Bowl

Yea, we're not a bowling city from what I perceive. Perhaps my friend Mary Bilyeu can change that with her upcoming project.

As the Food Editor she should've been to all the iconic Toledo eats places, right!?

Summer drinks!

So a Nashville hot chicken sandwich is the trendy thing now, right?

Losing Time to Save Money

Bethany will be handling the dogs tonight while I'm a celebrity waiter at a Victory center event.

Their food price is not immune to inflation. And why the formula chaos is happening.

It's Bethany's husband Josh's birthday!

Getting to and from Columbus is a hassle from here.

Game Changer opens at the Imagination Station.

Waiting in long lines to save money for gas.

Tom Cruise got Pilots fired!?

You may see Bethany working at Mr. G's at some point.

Keep Toledo Lucas County Beautiful

That's the name of the org, but also something you should practice!

I'm happy to have Adam Cassi on from KTLCB to saving the earth - really. 

We can all be a bit better when it comes to recycling; I had no idea there were so many numbers in those recycling arrows!

Upcoming recycling events, websites, apps, and the second year of the Litter League!

Doug Hinebaugh + Griz419

Thanks to one of Toledo's best photogs - if not THEE best - Doug Hinebaugh for joining for a quick moment to talk about Saturday's Griz419 FUNraiser. It's another event to support the family of Aaron Grizaniuk as they manage through a cancer diagnosis.

Drifting And Donuts

Alex had her Rotary initiation today! 

She got to Focaccia's yesterday for Mother's Day.

You might be surprised how we feel about the drifting and donuts that happened at Hill and Reynolds on Saturday night.

No Spoilers and No Dad

My Dad had begun his trek to Ohio, and then he got called back to Philly. 

No Doctor Strange spoilers aside from, it was SO comforting, and the MCU went to something I didn't think they ever would.

Speaking of going dangerous places, at least in my world (which is not the accurate world view), I haven't seen anyone say YEA, IT'S ABOUT TIME.

Would you like to work with them!?
