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”

Striking Out

It is OK to strike out. Once in a while. In a sport where the players earn millions of dollars (what sport doesn’t pay you millions anymore?) for hitting a ball, you can earn the highest level of fame and accolades if you are successful thirty-five percent of the time. Thirty-five. I was successful thirty-threeContinue reading “Striking Out”

Numbers

Being “good with numbers” is pretty much a requirement for any successful businessperson. I don’t care to even think about how much money I wasted in my life. The amount would disgust some, but I don’t give a  shit. It makes me smile. And it gave me true stories that others can only read about.Continue reading “Numbers”

Getting Lost

You are only lost if you have somewhere else that you want to be. I am the master of getting lost when I only have the simplest of places to travel. Give me an address in a street in a country I have never been to, and I will drive right on up to theContinue reading “Getting Lost”

Unrealistic Expectations

The realm in which I exist according to the Domestic Despot. As I told you the other day, I always send an email to Robin Meade asking her to show up at one of my gigs just to see the look on my wife’s face. At that point I would exist in the realm ofContinue reading “Unrealistic Expectations”

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”

Choices

At least in a democratic society we are supposed to have many choices; that is what a democracy is all about after all. For some unknown reason, no one has ever approached me to ask my opinions on Roe v Wade. Here they are: Firstly, no man should be a part of the legislative processContinue reading “Choices”

It’s Fast Approaching

2022. The New Year. I suppose the older I get, the longer I take to review, revile, and rejoice at surviving yet another calendar year with all the obstacles standing in our way. With the return of high pandemic numbers, it literally seems like it was just January that we started this whole thing. Here’sContinue reading “It’s Fast Approaching”

Are You Serious?

The Domestic Despot enlightened me yesterday to a website that actually reminds people five times a day that they are going to die. Lovely. You don’t need a website. Go look in the mirror. Beneath all the mascara, make-up, and foundation, etc. you are dying. Underneath the bleached and dyed hair, the colored nails, theContinue reading “Are You Serious?”

Corny

Ever since we moved to southern Ohio, I am turning into a real cornball. I leave my left arm free when I slowly drive through my neighborhood. So I can do the “neighbor wave” in case one of my peeps throw me a wave as I make it home. I eat at Bob Evans sometimes.Continue reading “Corny”
