Be Kind Yesterday

 I am so ripped I just realized that TODAY Saturday, November 13th is World Kindness Day 2021. I am thinking back on how I was kind today. I did a lot of extra work around the house and being kind to Karen earns big dividends, although I am a pretty good partner as far asContinue reading “Be Kind Yesterday”

Squeaky Clean

I can’t stand to be dirty. Even if I don’t leave the house at all for the whole day, I will not be able to sleep or do much of anything if I don’t hop in the shower and dry off before hitting the sack. Back when I was slamming boilermakers by the double-barreled fistful,Continue reading “Squeaky Clean”

Obedience

     The morning sun peeked over the pink mountains illuminating the entire valley.      It was going to be another scorcher. The Yuki Valley could get that way for about six weeks out of the year, and it was eight days into it. One hundred degrees is hot anyway, but throw in seventy-five percent humidity,Continue reading “Obedience”

Feet

I have recounted my first brush with death where my heart stopped beating and I had to be brought back in the ambulance. It pales in significance, but I also had four mangled toes which seemed to point in all directions after I recovered. When I was five I lived in Japan and I keptContinue reading “Feet”

Best Gift I Ever Gave

Do you remember the best thing you ever did in your entire life? Looking back at every gift I ever gave or received, one stands out high above the others. I was in a very self-destructive stage of my time spent in Las Vegas (big shock there, right?) and I had been walked out on,Continue reading “Best Gift I Ever Gave”

Are You Serious?

The Domestic Despot enlightened me yesterday to a website that actually reminds people five times a day that they are going to die. Lovely. You don’t need a website. Go look in the mirror. Beneath all the mascara, make-up, and foundation, etc. you are dying. Underneath the bleached and dyed hair, the colored nails, theContinue reading “Are You Serious?”

Lips

The very first thing I notice are a woman’s eyes. I have made no secret of my love of the female form, but those characteristics have to take a backseat to the “windows of the soul.” I believe you can read so much and uncover so much through eyes and facial expressions. Feline. Sexy. TheContinue reading “Lips”
