NOT AS A CROCODILE

Family life on the west coast is the subject of these articles by a husband and father who, writing as a free lance at home, is in the midst of every emergency and crisis. From their move out of his mother-in-law's house to the determination to have a lawn and gardens at their new place, to the perversity of inanimate objects and mechanical appliances, to the raising and attempts to discipline two energetic small boys, this wanders as far afield as Las Vegas and, when a play is in progress, to the east coast and show production. The perils of Cub Scouts and Little League baseball, of deep sea fishing, of adjusting a small trauma, of letting a wife go to evening courses (that's how the play was written), and all the other dangers of parenthood are glib and jocose in their telling and for those lighter moments.
