MINOT, N.D. — Friday is my favorite day of the week.

I like my work, so I like that Friday is a workday, but I also like that after Friday comes two days that are mostly free to have adventures with my family. The weather is getting nice, and I’m looking forward to some Geocaching trips and getting the tent out for camping.

I also like Fridays because it means I get to write this column. I really enjoy all of the feedback I get from you readers (even those of you inclined to zing me for one thing or another).

To reach me, email You can reach me on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter too, but it’s easier for me to organize and respond to all the messages I get through email.
