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?”

When I am Over Everything II

I will eliminate suicide from our planet. I saw an absolutely sickening statistic that showed there were 67,000 people in the United States alone, who took their lives in 2020. I don’t know how to do it, but that’s just gotta stop. I will change the alcohol policy on the airlines, all of them. NoContinue reading “When I am Over Everything II”

Not in My Contract

When I first started out in the restaurant business, my big brother told me he would make me his Assistant Manager in his Sambo’s restaurant after learning how to do everything. And I do mean everything. From the parking lot, trash dumpsters, dishwashing, mopping, I mean I did not get one break from Ed. IContinue reading “Not in My Contract”

School’s in for Winter

It appears that with the dropping temperatures come rising expectations to have our fireplace working tomorrow. They should have our covered porch done tonight. You know one of the things I like to do socially is smoke weed. I always have. However, with the pandemic and the New Abnormal, I don’t want to die toContinue reading “School’s in for Winter”

Hanging Out

Pretty lazy day but everybody seems to be in a hurry to me. I guess because, ever since I retired, I have no time constraints, so I am not in a hurry anymore…forever. It’s official: All the Christmas decorations, inside and out, are packed away for next year, but my wonderful soulmate has acquiesced toContinue reading “Hanging Out”

The Day After

I was unable to get my Christmas blog done yesterday for all the obvious reasons. I talked with family, opened presents, and thoroughly enjoyed my 35th consecutive Christmas with my favorite person on planet Earth. My silly wife just asked “Who?” The dogs made out like bandits and there are chewies and chewy-shaped things allContinue reading “The Day After”

Home Sweet Home

I didn’t think I was driving that fast, but it didn’t take me much over two hours to make the two hour and thirty-minute drive from my house to my Goddaughter’s. I saw a few stops of speeders, but I seemed to go (literally) under the radar all the way to my exit. I amContinue reading “Home Sweet Home”

Rainy Season

The painters show up for day two and they already have the walls, trim, and ceilings done with the first coat. So they are really going at a fast clip and it looks like we might get it wrapped up by Friday. One of the lads professes to be a Fighting Irish football fan. IContinue reading “Rainy Season”

Remakes

I won’t pursue this subject on any other level than motion pictures. Music has so many remakes, but like with movies, most are stinko, or at least never come close to recapturing the magic with a sequel. Before I start getting into my personal favorites, let’s acknowledge that there is still one and only oneContinue reading “Remakes”

Modern Weddings

Karen and I had a tiny wedding. There was myself, my bride, my bandmates, my brother who put together a feast for us, and his assistant. Oh yeah, there were also seven of my ex-girlfriends there. I know, I know, but Karen was the one who told me to invite them. I guess she figuredContinue reading “Modern Weddings”
