Welcome to theMangoTimes

Welcome to my blog!

This is my first attempt at blogging. It is not really the same as the original theMangoTimes website, but it will definitely be easier for me to manage.  You should be able to find yourself around this site pretty easily.  Take some time to look around.  On the right, you can scroll through familiar themes or you can use the search bar to look up a favorite topic.  I intend for this blog to be interactive, so feel free to drop a comment for me as well.
My goal here is simple:  I like to chronicle our family and reflect on our day to day experiences on this wacky planet. Our world is a very funny place, especially when we consider how politics, religion and personal experiences often collide.  I try my best to include some of that routine humor with you here.  I fully understand that I may occasionally destroy someone's "sacred cows."  That is not my intent, but with many friends and family members reading my words I want to apologize in advance if any of my personal thoughts, comments, or opinions on this site, offend you.
Enjoy it for what it is, a snapshot into the life of one wife-loving, dog-chasing, schwinn-cruising, vw-driving, jimmy buffett-listening, tooth-grinning dentist and homeschooling dad!
Quietly making noise,

***Author's Note: The original content for theMangoTimes was sent out as a once per month eNewsletter. It transformed into a hosted website and eventually became a blog on HomeschoolBlogger.com. The first few months of posts here on theMT came from that original blog on HSB.com.

Andy Fletcher

Andy "Fletch" Fletcher has been married for the past 22 years. He and his wife Kendra are the proud parents of five sons and three daughters, all of whom keep them laughing and on their toes. During the day he can be found fixing people's teeth, but in his spare time you can find Fletch stretching out a pair of flip-flops, creating a new pizza recipe, playing the drums, or rescuing a piece of his tie-dye wardrobe from his wife's donation pile. You can find him online where he writes on his personal blog: theMangoTimes and cohosts with his wife on the HomeschoolingIRL.com podcast.
