Kung Fu Boo

In the early seventies, kung fu was big. Bruce Lee had every kid jumping and mewling like felines before pouncing on their prey. Dojo’s popped up everywhere and kids name Kyle and Trevor were all of a sudden badasses. I would learn my own lesson from a kung fu practitioner years later, and I rememberContinue reading “Kung Fu Boo”

Saving

If I have a goal, such as buying real estate or an expensive trip, or something tangible, I can save with no problems. Now. In my youth, as soon as I had a penny in my pocket, it was gone. I helped keep theAmerican economy flowing. My money wasn’t in my pockets, or my wallet,Continue reading “Saving”

Not So Fast My Friend…

Australian fiend Graham Potter has been hiding out for ten years and they finally caught his sick ass. How this crazy decapitating weirdo blended in with normal society, kind of makes you wonder about “normal” society? At least he can spend his remaining years with no eligibility or hope for parole. I wish him longContinue reading “Not So Fast My Friend…”

The Great Escape

I am sitting in a little bar on the west side of Tucson. It is called the Turquoise Turtle and my big brother and I were pounding down Cutty Sark scotch like it was water. After about three hours, we got into some sort of an argument. My bro has always maintained his physique andContinue reading “The Great Escape”

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”

Staying Put

I make no apologies for the way I am wired. You must take your complaints to a much higher level than myself. In the height of my career in restaurant management, I was flattered to receive several offers from other restaurants and I took five flights for interviews. The first was in Charlotte, North Carolina.Continue reading “Staying Put”

Slow Down

This planet is spinning way too fast. People seem to always be in a hurry amidst this pandemic with no one working in an office building. So where are they going and why aren’t they at their home offices working? Not wanting to work is something I totally understand; and I also have a lazyContinue reading “Slow Down”

Skimming

I suppose the correct term is scrolling because that’s what we do on our phones, right? I saw a picture of this twelve-foot long fish swimming right up on a person who was scuba diving. Now I understand that human beings may not be on the menu for many species, but I don’t want toContinue reading “Skimming”

Pain

Physical and mental pain are our co-habitants on our journey through life. Deal with it. Nice. Lots of sympathy and empathy. I have a very high threshold for pain and I know that some of it was gained at a very early age because I was raised (by my brother) that pain was for pussiesContinue reading “Pain”

Weddings

I was sitting here blasting away at some old-school OG Kush and I started thinking about weddings. I have been to very few weddings in my lifetime. In order, I have been to my own wedding, my Goddaughter’s nuptials, and my cousin’s. That’s it. Growing up as a way-too-confirmed bachelor, I was invited to manyContinue reading “Weddings”
