Shame on Me?

This is a story direct from my seventh grade love life. I had just won the only championship in my entire athletic career which ended under the scalpel of yet another surgeon. But then, in school, I was able to date 8th graders which was a really big deal. Not necessarily for me, but toContinue reading “Shame on Me?”

Happy People

…are so much more fun to be around than assholes. Effortless smiles and laughter. I had a blast yesterday talking with, and playing music for, some residents of the Heartland of Miamisburg ProMedica Nursing home. It was a small, but spirited group of listeners and I had them requesting songs and singing along (American PieContinue reading “Happy People”

Must Be Tough Getting Old

I know, we are all getting older by the minute, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it affect your mindset. You don’t have to act old even if you are. By that I mean don’t do all the old stuff people expect old people to do. Stop going out to eat dinner atContinue reading “Must Be Tough Getting Old”

Good Karma

Everyone needs it. Karma is tangible to those of us who believe in it. It is inevitable. Putin needs good karma if anyone ever did. He was humiliated to the point of pity at his Big Day celebration of his “swift and efficient” defeat of Ukraine. Except the Ukrainians didn’t get the memo. They didContinue reading “Good Karma”

Tenacity

A great characteristic to possess. People possess it in varying degrees. You can have an extremely lazy and unmotivated mother who will turn into a veritable killing machine if you try to mess with one of her kids. Even though she is too damn lazy to properly care for them. I am trying to thinkContinue reading “Tenacity”

Shaking in my Boots

Ooh, I’m so scared. That little bald Russian lawn gnome Putin is making a whole lot of threats to the United States. Is anyone else frightened at the words of a bungling idiot who can’t even take a small country with no resources? If this failed Ukrainian debacle is any indication, perhaps that little dipshitContinue reading “Shaking in my Boots”

You Didn’t Think We’d Notice?

America has been known as a hotbed of invention and forward-thinking. Here’s two more words for you. Greedy and devious. I think those two words say it all. I go to open a box of Coast soap, and the bar that plopped out was about half the size of the original version bought before someContinue reading “You Didn’t Think We’d Notice?”

Branding

Don’t ask me how I do it. Confidence. Anyway, I move out here after spending the better part of three years in a hospital bed or rehab bed or my own bed and LazyBoy recliner. They were not easy. Least of all on my wife. But I felt great after two shows in two daysContinue reading “Branding”

Catching Up

Whew! It has been a very busy week and today we both felt it. We ended up laying around and watching movies and reruns of Special Victims Unit. On top of that the temperature dropped as snow appeared, probably for one of the last times as Spring takes center stage. Believe I will post someContinue reading “Catching Up”

Fair or Unfair?

There is a major controversy in the realm of collegiate sports which has developed into a firestorm of debate on the legitimacy of the national collegiate swimming championship recently won by Lia Thomas. I know I sound like I don’t, but I have always believed in acceptance and inclusivity. I am sensitive to the issuesContinue reading “Fair or Unfair?”
