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”

Knowing When to Quit

Never. I would love to say I am such a noble individual and that I do not believe in quitting under any circumstances. I would dearly love to say it, but it is a falsehood. I have quit at certain times in my life, or more accurately, I just didn’t care enough to fight orContinue reading “Knowing When to Quit”

Enough Already

I am sure you already know what I am going to say next… I say enough to these stories that people post on Facebook that show a cat, dumped by the side of the road by some asshole who has forfeited their eternal soul, but are too fucking stupid to even realize it. But theContinue reading “Enough Already”

Anticipation

I’m ready as I’ll ever be for my audition tomorrow night. I have the six songs I was sent that the band is using to determine their new lead singer. I have checked out all the videos the band recorded and I even skipped my weekly open mics that I do to practice. I willContinue reading “Anticipation”

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”
