Snapshots

Because I have travelled extensively in my life, occasionally I will have someone ask me what is the prettiest place I have ever been? I honestly have so many that I will just name a few: I was in a ski lift coming down a mountain in Breckenridge, Colorado, when the sun sent its lastContinue reading “Snapshots”

It’s a Dog’s Life

I believe in reincarnation and different spheres of existence. In this life, it wasn’t in God’s Plan for Karen and I to have children. But when I come back, I wanna come back as one of my dogs. Talk about having it made. We have spoiled dogs. Not just any ordinary dogs. Our dogs. TheseContinue reading “It’s a Dog’s Life”

Mr. 500

Not this post. Yesterday’s post was the 500th post I have been credited with making on my blog. That’s like writing a book, which I found to be one of the hardest things I ever did in my life. Since my posts average around 500 words each, I have written 250,000 and I am stillContinue reading “Mr. 500”

Tranquilo

Staying calm. Cool under pressure. Not everyone has it 100% of the time. I’m probably in the high eighties if I am really being honest with myself. I had to “beat” a polygraph test in order to land a major casino Executive Chef job in Las Vegas. Answering truthfully all the questions set up toContinue reading “Tranquilo”

Lost

In your sea-green feline eyes In the perfume on your graceful neck In the sweet caress of Faith and Safety. From all not you Two souls in flames. Streaking A frozen crystal alpine lake Hot cheeks touching Snow melting And you never even told me your name. Lost. ***** Happy Friday one and all. ThankContinue reading “Lost”

Knock Knock

I see where Minnesota is putting an end to no knock warrants. I always thought every warrant was a no-knock warrant. I did not know that police were required to announce themselves before entering. I found out one night in 1974 after I returned to my apartment in Winslow, Arizona, where I was on loanContinue reading “Knock Knock”

Where is the Good News?

Kiss my ass Jeff Bezos. Let’s start with that. He already owns everything, and with a current net worth north of 175 billion dollars, could buy it if he wanted. His playground is not just confined to our globe. The majesty of a sunset over a mountain lake isn’t enough for him. A sunrise overContinue reading “Where is the Good News?”

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”

Chilling on a Hike

There was a time, back in the day, when you could drive your car or truck (SUV’s weren’t invented yet), all the way up to the very end of Sabino Canyon down in Tucson. I went up to Reddington Pass one afternoon with a girl to whom I was pitching woo. We took a caseContinue reading “Chilling on a Hike”

Hang With Me

I found a jar of old school Maui Blue Hawaiian weed that is beleve it or not, drum roll please…. is thirty-five years old. It was inside something that you just throw into a box when you are moving, and since I am married to my perfect angel who NEVER THROWS ANYTHING AWAY, I droppedContinue reading “Hang With Me”
