What am I Thankful For?

Let’s start by beating the same old drums like Keith Moon pounded his Ludwigs. Loud. Educators: Pay them. Healthcare workers: Pay them. Stop here for a second. One group ensures there IS a future for us to enjoy, and the other group does their best to prolong our existence here. If those aren’t things weContinue reading “What am I Thankful For?”

Brilliant

A reporter was robbed on live television in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup is being played. In a most refreshing story, the victim of the crime was asked what punishment should be meted out to her assailant. Wishful thinking. Although the six consecutive life sentences that Darrell Brooks received sent a message, loud andContinue reading “Brilliant”

Check This Out

Some nut job in where else, Oklahoma, ate a last meal which he did not deserve. That’s the story. Not that he admitted remorse for his unforgivable crime of placing a three year-old boy who had just wet the bed, on a scorching furnace, and then raising him high in the air and slamming himContinue reading “Check This Out”

Nicknames

I was sitting here enjoying a 33% THC Sativa strain and I started thinking about all the nicknames I’ve had going back as far as I can remember. The first one in memory is Markitos, which my grandma and mother used to call me when I was young. At the same time, my grandfather hadContinue reading “Nicknames”

God Bless

G.B. Whoever invented the little doggie wheels that allow dogs with inoperable legs to run like the wind and feel like a doggie should; happy, unafraid, and just like all the other doggies. My heart sings when I see people with these animals and believe Maddogg when he says these people have spots reserved forContinue reading “God Bless”

Smarty Pants

I’ve always been too damn smart for my own good. I admit it. Not proud of it, either. As soon as I was able to enunciate, my big brother would have me read aloud every single word of the “Acknowledgements” of one of his high-school level books, even the word “Acknowledgements.” Then he would makeContinue reading “Smarty Pants”

Just to be Clear

Enough with wild animals eating children. This time, an alligator was the guilty party. Once again, I am horrified and piteous of the parents of the eight-year old boy. To see the creature float lazily away downriver with the lifeless (God, tell me he was lifeless) body of their son is the stuff of lifelongContinue reading “Just to be Clear”

Crazy World

I was just writing about Brittany Griner yesterday, and JoJo is finally prepared to talk with BabyHead Putin about a prisoner exchange. Not that I am claiming any sort of influence, but it is interesting timing. We are always hearing about fires, and many encroach on my old west coast home in Santa Barbara, butContinue reading “Crazy World”

Stay With Me Now

No question that I am, and always have been a big dog lover starting with our family pets to our two Cocker Spaniel brothers tearing through the house tonight. I am seeing far too many stories of children and adults being killed by dogs. Before I go any further in my own thought process, IContinue reading “Stay With Me Now”

Life Goes On

Or does it? I’m thumbing through the digital news and nowhere near the headlines, tucked under a “New and Used Cars” advertisement way down the page, was a story that matter-of-factly reported that Ukraine is bracing for a nuclear attack. WTF? Am I the only person on the planet that sees this as a preludeContinue reading “Life Goes On”
