The Envelope Please…

The award for luckiest dumbass of the millennium has to go to the knucklehead who “fell” from the Carnival Cruise Line ship into the Gulf of Mexico. He spent fifteen hours in the warm, shark infested waters before being found and rescued. The motive is still under question, as a spokesperson for the cruise linesContinue reading “The Envelope Please…”

Nicknames

I was sitting here enjoying a 33% THC Sativa strain and I started thinking about all the nicknames I’ve had going back as far as I can remember. The first one in memory is Markitos, which my grandma and mother used to call me when I was young. At the same time, my grandfather hadContinue reading “Nicknames”

Just to be Clear

Enough with wild animals eating children. This time, an alligator was the guilty party. Once again, I am horrified and piteous of the parents of the eight-year old boy. To see the creature float lazily away downriver with the lifeless (God, tell me he was lifeless) body of their son is the stuff of lifelongContinue reading “Just to be Clear”

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”

Cue Ball Side Pocket

Can you believe the stones on that hairless dipshit of a manager for Manchester United? He fired Ronaldo, the greatest striker the world has ever seen. What has he accomplished in football? So he’s won a few titles. In Amsterdam. Big fucking deal. My beloved Cocker Spaniel Bruiser, who is licking his balls right nowContinue reading “Cue Ball Side Pocket”

Give Me More

I cannot get enough videos of dogs riding skateboards and kicking their legs to keep it going. I could watch those all day. How about stories of getting payback to someone who really deserves it? Revenge, especially for the little guy or girl,  against great odds, is the best. And the more despicable the deservingContinue reading “Give Me More”

Mourning

Obviously, I did not post a blog to mark the season-opening loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. It wasn’t the romp everyone expected, but it was starting to look like if the game were just a bit longer, the score would have been more lopsided. My boys were wearing down against the huge linemen ofContinue reading “Mourning”

 In So Many Words…

I prefer the succinct to the loquacious. In my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! I have taken the genre of the short story and synthesized it. Distilling the product to deliver an entire story within the lines of just a few carefully constructed sentences and paragraphs. I derived my main writing style and inspirationContinue reading ” In So Many Words…”

On and Off Again

It is raining on and off again in southern Ohio, which is why it stays so green here. August 28 is the traditional end of the summer, and here it is rigidly adhered to. Like the space vehicle that sits idle on the launching pad. I read where a majority of Democrats do not wantContinue reading “On and Off Again”

Waiting

I’m not real good at waiting. A few minutes, maybe, but make me sit past what I consider a reasonable time (five minutes after our scheduled time…MAYBE, but most likely, maybe not) and I won’t be there when you arrive. Never make the mistake of verifying your scheduled time, because to me, that carves itContinue reading “Waiting”
