Author has written 9 stories for Humor, and Kids.

I started this blog as a way to work through the various frustrations of having my 97-year-old father living with me and my family. I felt that I could either vent in a healthy way here or vent in an unhealthy way there.

I chose here.

I also started it as a way to connect with people who might be in the same situation I'm in. I wanted to let them know that they weren't alone in what they were going through and that they weren't alone in what they were feeling.

Raising a child is hard.

Raising a parent is harder.

And, not that it matters, but most of it is true.

RaisingDad V reviews
Government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops, subsidize it.

As Featured In Desert Exposure Magazine reviews
I wish I could take credit, but the stories in this section are all based on classic jokes. (A boiled egg is hard to beat.) If you like my original stories, please write DesertExposure dot com and ask them to give me my own column. You can refer to these stories as "by Henry Duchene" or "the father and his son" or "Raising My Father," as long as it's in your own words. Thanks, Jim
