Dose Of Doug
We are in the middle of Easter week. It’s a time filled with thoughts of spring. Trees and flowers begin to bloom. And grocery store shelves are packed… with Peeps!
This week, my daughter won something, but turned myself and her mom into even bigger winners. It goes so much further than the trophy that she received.
My recent interview with Mark Kelly lasted only about 15 minutes. But if you do this job long enough, and you can tell a lot about any person pretty quickly.
Absolutely shocked. That was my reaction when someone from our news desk called me on Saturday evening and told me that Chris Kyle had been murdered.
We finally did it. After nearly twenty years of marriage, two kids now 10 and 7, three cats, two hamsters, opossums, birds, turtles, fish ducks and more, we got a dog.
Been on Facebook a few years, I get a few “likes” here and there for things I post. But it’s my public CBS 11 News Facebook page, that left me speechless this weekend. I’ve posted everything from fun, goofy posts, to serious information. But nothing has ever gotten the kind of attention, like what I posted on Friday.
If curiosity killed the cat, that cat must have had it coming. Curiosity is one of the greatest blessings we have. One of the proudest parts of being a father is helping foster curiosity.
I’m just going to come out and say how I feel each and every year when we get here. Why does it have to come down to a holiday to give thanks? For some of you, it doesn’t. Me neither.
With the benefit of hindsight, I reflect back to the summer, when I dropped my two kids off at a Tae Kwon Do camp. They had never really been exposed to traditional martial arts.
Even though I cast my vote for President on Tuesday morning, my mind was made up long ago on who impresses me the most as a leader. My mom, Inge Dunbar.
Random thoughts from a worn out triathlete! Season’s over, and I am glad! Triathlon has been one of my passions of choice the last few years, and I just wrapped up the season.
Monday brought the news that Lance Armstrong officially lost his Tour de France titles, all seven of them, and he is now banned from competitive cycling for life. Not a shock.
