A touching endorsement of great parenting. The perfectly executed difficult balance of freedom and restraint.And look how good you turned out (with or without a wedding dance)

Excellent column, Stone! A familiar sense of frankness and folly shines through. I hope to see more sometime.
One thing, though... If you believe grown ups get to have lunch whenever they want, take Facebook time outs and chat with pals all day, you may be in for a rude awakening when you enter the world of goods and services. Commerce is a lot like school except you get a paycheck... which you then hand over to the landlord, utilities and the IRS. Even writers, BTW. But stay with it anyway. You have a gift for it.

My dad gave me a good, hard whupping once. Once! From that day on, all he had to do was raise one serious eyebrow. I got it! Thank the stars above he never had Botox. I might have had to endure the strap every time I jeopardized his tranquility.

YEAH! Maybe we'll soon hear a flight attendant announce, "Your seat cushion may be used as an anatomically correct blow up doll. Simply open the red compact or blow into the silver eyeliner case."

Your dad must be very proud of you. I would be! I remember teaching my daughter to run the ice cream scoop under the hot water tap to cut through stubborn ice cream. Not as good as "Drink all the liquor down to Costa Rica" but it's something.

Looks like your running a little behind on the planning of number 3. Better step on it.

I recall the articles and bio Shep has referenced. I've always felt Starshine has demonstrated great love and respect for her Stepdad. Obviously hurt by his infidelity and estrangement but always respectful and appreciative.
I can't help wondering if Shep has some incident in his past that causes him to come the aid of a "parent" who disowns his child out of regrets over his own misdeeds. When I hurt over someone else picking a scab, I usually find I have a scar in that spot.

I'm sponsoring a facility to help adults appreciate those things usually considered lame but are, in actuality, so lame they're cool.
It's called camp camp.

Yeah. And what about Bambi's poor papa? Why can't they bring him back like Jesus? Why did Disney pass the buck on that tragic demise. A clear case of Venisonism!
