I may be an inky wretch by day, but more than that I’m a family man. My greatest role model, my father, was a family man; my mother a dedicated homemaker. And while they are gone from this earth now, I remember them as the best parents anyone could ever hope for.
Still with me are my five brothers, all with families of their own, an ex-wife and two daughters, and a passel of cousins and others in our extended family. Every year about this time, we all get together at a retreat center in the Ozark Mountains, in my native state of Arkansas.
