Heartbreak

I don’t like that word. Your heart does not get broken, per se, when a loved one passes into the next sphere of existence. Broken implies something that needs to be repaired, but your heart will carry the deep hurt of loss until you pass. You can’t fix it. Before I get going, check outContinue reading “Heartbreak”

I Totally Get It

I’m an asshole. And the older I get, the less patient I am becoming. I don’t like it. I am not a rude, intrusive person by nature, but I think my condition is caused by my perception of time. There isn’t much more of it left after a massive heart attack, a leg amputation, andContinue reading “I Totally Get It”

Give Me More

I absolutely cannot get enough of the videos of doggies and their excitement when they see their owners return home. Have you noticed how the whole parkour thing is pretty much over? By the time I found out what parkour was, it was gone. Give me more shots of people getting knocked down by bigContinue reading “Give Me More”

A Great Big Hit

from my bong goes to: Aaron Judge, the new York Yankee who will set the Major League Baseball record with only a couple more home runs. He might have even done it and I haven’t seen the news yet tonight. He’s also the first selection because he probably would refuse the hit, leaving more forContinue reading “A Great Big Hit”

Take A Breath

A lot has happened lately and you are entitled to a bit of a breather. It is another gorgeous day in southern Ohio, climbing to a muggy 85 today, but before we left Arizona a year and a half ago, there was a string of 32 straight days in temperatures over 105 degrees! I haveContinue reading “Take A Breath”

Perspective

The human factor It is one of the things that differentiates us. Watch any episode of Law and Order and you will not see any two eyewitnesses describe the same perp. I think it should be a criminal offense to give an inaccurate description of an offender no matter how good the intentions are. IfContinue reading “Perspective”

Christmas Commercials Already?

I saw my first one today (9/6) and I made a mental note to never shop from the particular advertiser for this holiday season, or ANY holiday season until time immemorial. That’s how much I appreciate their initiative. When I am over everything, I keep telling the Domestic Despot, one of the changes I willContinue reading “Christmas Commercials Already?”

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

Here are some pictures displaying my optimism for the opening match for my Manchester United Reds. You will see a considerable “before and after” effect. I don’t like the new manager (Erik (“cue ball, side pocket”) Ten Hag. I think he is arrogant and reminds me of past United managers that just didn’t fit withContinue reading “Enough”

Wow!

It’s not every day, or often enough, for that matter, that you see or hear something and it makes you say “wow!” out loud. In researching songs to add to my playlist, I came upon a video on YouTube posted in 2103. It featured Stevie Ray Vaughn (the King of West Texas blues) and JeffContinue reading “Wow!”
