Playing the Lottery

The Mega Millions lottery payout is now at 1 billion dollars. Those are my kind of numbers, so I might buy a couple tickets for the next drawing. The prospect of getting so much money brings out the best of my altruistic side.  Since we are dreaming, I can say what I would do withContinue reading “Playing the Lottery”

Rent

For a myriad of reasons I only ever had to pay rent for a few months out of my life. Even when I had a bachelor pad, I rarely spent any time there. I hear of people struggling to pay off someone else’s mortgage every month. I am not saying I don’t feel sorry forContinue reading “Rent”

Good Cheer, Goodbye

I was spreading it today for a 2 PM show at Sycamoresprings Nursing home. It was a nice turnout and the residents were super cool, and totally engaged. They requested ten songs from me and I was able to do seven of them. I had a dear lady who was so excited and I broughtContinue reading “Good Cheer, Goodbye”

Is it Safe?

Not in this country. Not anymore. As if the recent senseless violent shootings weren’t enough, now throw in the terrifying reality that we, each and every one of us, are at risk of being killed indiscriminately anywhere we go. There’s a pleasant thought to carry with you on this fine Tuesday. It just isn’t enoughContinue reading “Is it Safe?”

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?”

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”

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”

I Did it Again

Once again, my mad computer skills. Not only did I not post my 403rd blog yesterday, I somehow deleted it entirely from my computer. So here’s a few observations: Enough with commercials showing people loading up ten pounds of food on a plate made of pressed paper, only to see the food spill all overContinue reading “I Did it Again”
