About

Welcome, everyone, to Harvey Millican, my blog about kids, parenting, traveling, drinking, traveling with kids, drinking with parents, acting like a kid, and drinking while traveling (but never drinking and driving).  Harvey is a pseudonym.  Why?  Because you don’t know me.  Simple, right?  I know!  There are many who think they know me; but very few actually know me.  OK, well, several hundred people probably know me well but that’s all relative in the grand scheme.

Everything you will read here is true (except for some of the names).  For instance, you might come across a post about how I testified in a murder trial and how my testimony sent a man away for ten years.  All true.  The interesting thing there is that it just sort of happened before my eyes out of a clear blue sky.  In fact, that’s how most of my life has transpired.  Again, you may find yourself reading about my wife’s mis-texted conversation with a well-known meteorologist who wanted to relate to me in a Biblical way.  Why?  Simply because she entered the wrong area code when texting her sister.  But you’re just as likely to encounter a story about a 7500 mile road trip with a six week-old baby complete with ratings for all the roadside attractions and points of interest along with musings about why we took said six week-old baby on such a trip.  Short answer, it would have been kind of wrong to leave him at home without us.

I once asked God for an interesting life and He has delivered many times over.  Feel free to comment, link, whatever; just keep coming back.  I need the traffic.  My lifestyle has become expensive and I don’t want to be reduced to Pall Mall’s and Old Granddad…

On a more substantive level I will tell you about my credentials.  What am I talking about; I’m writing a blog about my life.  My credentials are that I have lived my own life and I am somewhat familiar with the English language.  Other than that I hold a Masters Degree in Systematic Theology and another in Educational Administration and Leadership.  I hate mentioning that because I know a few people who use that fact (as applied to themselves) to justify their arrogance.  I got it because I was studying for the priesthood — a path I ultimately decided to not to continue pursuing.  I only mention it because it comes in handy with my day job — teaching Theology at a Catholic high school.  Also, sometimes I may write a page about something theological in nature.  Just wanted everyone to know I like to pretend I know what I’m talking about.
