Inflation

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I can’t ever remember being affected by inflation in my entire life. When I was growing up overseas, the military took care of everything and I can never remember wanting for anything. I am sure my parents felt the effects of inflation and applying it to a familyContinue reading “Inflation”

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”

Serves You Right

I remember hearing that a lot when I was a kid growing up. Remember those little brush “blades” that we would find on the streets after the street sweepers went through? They served as our first weapon. A cutting tool after you sharpened them against the curbs. When I don’t understand something, I don’t justContinue reading “Serves You Right”

Kung Fu Boo

In the early seventies, kung fu was big. Bruce Lee had every kid jumping and mewling like felines before pouncing on their prey. Dojo’s popped up everywhere and kids name Kyle and Trevor were all of a sudden badasses. I would learn my own lesson from a kung fu practitioner years later, and I rememberContinue reading “Kung Fu Boo”

Traveling Man

Not just a classic John Fogerty song, but another signpost along my own itinerary, which was unbeknownst to me. I am posting another short-short-story this time from a lake in Greece, which I found historically captivating and exhausting at once. I love Greek cuisine. Remember we are dealing with the emotion jaded, so have atContinue reading “Traveling Man”

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”

Scaredy Cat

Don’t be afraid to be afraid. People can talk shit all they want, but everyone fears something. My fears are way unreasonable and usually out of the realm of possibility, at least that’s what Karen says. I am afraid of being eaten alive by a wild animal. I lived a couple years in the mountainsContinue reading “Scaredy Cat”

Super Sunday

One of my fondest memories from living in England was staying for six months in a very old English manor house in Oxford when we first arrived. When you are in a military family, it was the moving that got to you after a while. Girlfriends, schools, countries; always changing. So when we arrived inContinue reading “Super Sunday”

Where is the Good News?

Kiss my ass Jeff Bezos. Let’s start with that. He already owns everything, and with a current net worth north of 175 billion dollars, could buy it if he wanted. His playground is not just confined to our globe. The majesty of a sunset over a mountain lake isn’t enough for him. A sunrise overContinue reading “Where is the Good News?”

You Cannot Be Serious!

To quote my favorite spoiled white brat tennis player John McEnroe,it is exactly how I feel when I hear about other stupid things said out loud. Whoopi Goldberg, shut up. I have always loved you as an actress, but denying that the Holocaust was about race is not something you want to say and stillContinue reading “You Cannot Be Serious!”
