Is a step parent still your step parent after the parent to whom they were married is deceased? I'm assuming so. The Man Who Lives In My House's stepdad, Mike Smith, is many things--all of them good. And I do not say this lightly. This man came and took care of the hooligans when we really really needed help a couple of years ago. (It was not a pleasure trip.) But even if that were not true, the pictures he takes will take your breath away. You may recognize a hooligan here and there, but the subject matter is wide ranging, and starkly beautiful.
