Enough Already!

As a fan of the greatest football team on the planet, I have come to expect much more than what is currently passing as football at Old Trafford. Stinko. Today’s match at Watford has me wondering once again, what the hell is going on? Georgie Best is surely turning in his grave. I’ll tell youContinue reading “Enough Already!”

Prom Night (s)

When I was in high school (four of them to be exact), I thought the prom was an annual thing. It was a time to drink and have sex. I went to four proms. Three with senior girlfriends and my senior year I brought my girlfriend who was no longer in high school. Some peopleContinue reading “Prom Night (s)”

Timelines

Such as in when is it OK to swear around children? Parents will go to extreme measures to shelter their children from hearing any curse words. They will interrupt you in mid-sentence if need be, to remind you to beware as you proceed. As you may know, Karen and I were not blessed with childrenContinue reading “Timelines”

Changes in Latitudes

Great Jimmy Buffet song, but also true. When I think back to all the different latitudes in which I have dwelled or visited, it did seem to matter how far north or south I lived as to what my attitude was. For example, I once visited the Philippines Islands (latitude just north of the equator)Continue reading “Changes in Latitudes”

Fog

I forgot how much I missed it . So many years have passed since I remember foggy days and nights, but when I woke up this morning, I could not see across the street to my neighbors’ houses. Of course in England we had the proverbial “thick as pea soup” fog that severely limited carContinue reading “Fog”

Military Brat

For most of my early life on this planet, I was the step-son of a good military man, my stepfather Vern McConnell. Vern was the consummate father and he was the head of three households when all was said and done. He was a good man who did things the right way. My first memoriesContinue reading “Military Brat”

Back for Good

What a trip. It started out on July 18th in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona and culminated on September 14th. We are now new citizens of a little town in southern Ohio called Miamisburg. A golf course less than a mile down the road. The slow moving Miami River (Greater or Little Miami toContinue reading “Back for Good”

Keeping Secrets

Everyone does it. Nations do it. Hell, they not only keep secrets about their enemies, they keep secrets about their own citizens. Spooky. It is another of my convoluted beliefs that if you have absolutely NO secrets, you have lived a pretty boring life. As long as membership into a seminary includes being a humanContinue reading “Keeping Secrets”

Ping-Pong

Table tennis. Whatever your wont I love the game. The reason I chose it as the subject of this blog is because 1) I am stoned and 2) Forrest Gump is on in the background and it is where he started playing ping pong. Now I was no Forrest, but I was good. Damn goodContinue reading “Ping-Pong”
