Enough is Enough

The little lawn gnome BabyHead Putin is at it again. Enough is enough with detaining Brittany Griner. Call it timing, coincidence, or whatever, but JoJo is heading to Asia just as our favorite North Korean maniac Kim Jong-un has decided on launching a long-range missile test. Go figure. Pakistan just got hit with an outbreakContinue reading “Enough is Enough”

Turn the Page

Move along. Nothing to see here. The international sanctions currently employed against Russia and Putin’s Folly by other countries don’t seem to be softening the little maniac’s resolve. There are more sanctions which are to be started at the end of this year, but just how long do they think Ukraine can stave off totalContinue reading “Turn the Page”

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”

Talent

There is no substitute for it. You can be driven, persistent, and personality up the ying-yang (wherever that is), but someone with that special something, the God-given talent, will prevail. It’s on display with athletes in almost every sport. Cream rises. I hosted the second Open Mic for the River Edge Sports Grill and BarContinue reading “Talent”

Info Overload

I hope this is not, but first, check out a W&B session song: Now here is the short story The REAL Summer of Love: The Real Summer of Love           We lived in a small two-story house at the end of a shady country lane. There were three houses actually, all similarly constructed of darkContinue reading “Info Overload”

Innocence

I used innocence representing the letter “I” in my book EMOTIONS: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! The story, which will be posted in its entirety in tomorrow night’s blog, details my own coming of age story. See how I went from maddpup to maddogg. The setting is England and a lovely, rare summer that graced us.Continue reading “Innocence”

Caliente

I am schlepping along like ordinary Maddogg, but something must be in the air. As it warms up here in southern Ohio, I am suddenly a hot commodity. I already told you that I have a gig on 3/30, but now I might have a weekly thing at a bar called the River Edge inContinue reading “Caliente”

The Best Medicine

Laughter. I really love to watch a great comedian or comedienne do their thing. I truly believe being able to make people laugh is one of the greater gifts from above. I remember as a kid, the greats were Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Dick Van Dyke, and of course Lucy and Desi. Jack Benny, AbbottContinue reading “The Best Medicine”

Pete Kadens U da MAN!

Karen had CBS Sunday Morning on and I caught the story of the non-profit called Hope Chicago and how they just changed the world. They have made the public offer to pay for high school students’ college education in five different high schools in Chicago. Room, board, books, the whole enchilada. There is no priceContinue reading “Pete Kadens U da MAN!”

Changing of the Guard

I think Father Time is finally gaining ground on me. Karen will tell you it happened long ago. Cold. It seems like just a couple years ago there was a new kid on the NFL stage. He was Patrick Mahomes from the Kansas City Chiefs and he was fire in a league that loves theirContinue reading “Changing of the Guard”
