The Return of Maddogg

We know the Satin Latin is back, but guess who showed up at an open mic tonight in the coolest little venue I have ever lifted a guitar in? Maddogg is back. Two days removed from the Cardiovascular post-op ICU I finally make my way out to a little town called Pleasant Plain. (I wishContinue reading “The Return of Maddogg”

One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

The PROS & CONS of having only one leg

I have been an amputee now for twenty months. It sucks. But being the critical thinker I am (mama didn’t raise no cornpone), I have to look at both sides of any equation. I have to consider not only the obvious but the subtle nuances if you will, to provide the full picture. You mayContinue reading “The PROS & CONS of having only one leg”

Second Chances

There are no second chances. We are undeterred as we push forward with our second offer on a house. We were really hoping the inspection done this morning would be free of any major problems which would cost us, but alas, we have put a repair list together for the sellers to address, or notContinue reading “Second Chances”

Movin’ on Out

Done deal. We are no longer in our lovely domicile in Avondale, AZ. The funds have hit the account, the desert is in our rear-view mirror, and we are in a hotel in Albuquerque. I will wait until I give the customer service liaison an opportunity to answer my written missive before I put anythingContinue reading “Movin’ on Out”

The Dance

I can dance. Certainly not as well as I think I can, but I have rhythm and a good sense of beat to at least not be “that guy” on the dance floor; flailing, spinning, and generally avoiding falling down to any music, except jazz. But who dances to jazz? Not cool enough. Jazz buffsContinue reading “The Dance”

Poetry

There are writers and there are poets. They are exclusive because not all writers are poets, and vice-versa. Why? As a writer, and a person with WAY too big of an ego, I fancy myself as both, so I will start adding a poem or two to my blog. Certainly not to compete with otherContinue reading “Poetry”

Social Media

I admit, I suck at it. If you have followed any of my blogging adventures, you know I still don’t have a handle on it. The fact that this blog is being posted about 8 hours later than I normally post is further evidence of it. I still don’t get the whole social media thing.Continue reading “Social Media”

Thank You

The first passage in the book Humanity: A Primer. I just made that title up; don’t search for it. Unless there really is a book called that, in which case my apologies. But saying “thank you” (in my way of thinking), is a minimum for membership into the human race. Dankie, Faleminderit, Shukran, Chnorakaloutioun, Hvala,Continue reading “Thank You”
