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…”

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”

Skateboarding

I missed skateboarding when it first came out as an activity for kids because I was living in a tiny Japanese village. However, everyone had a bicycle. Even in towns and even larger cities, swarms of bicycles. When I returned to the states, we didn’t stay in my birth state of California, we went allContinue reading “Skateboarding”

Lazy Sunday

I can’t wait for fall sports to start back up. The Domestic Despot is off my case today, as she had just a little too much vino last night. I can tell when she is at her limit when she asks to smoke pot. She never smokes pot. Dead giveaway. I practiced a few hoursContinue reading “Lazy Sunday”

Excitement

In six days the Domestic Despot and I will travel north to Dayton to watch Hank Williams, Jr. I am just as excited to see Ashley McBryde. She really blows my dress up. What is not to want about a whiskey-drinkin’, ass-kickin’, redheaded woman who sings like a bird? I’ll take two, please. Alas andContinue reading “Excitement”

Golf Tale

I was sitting here at my desk checking out some of the framed pics I keep close. One I keep very close is the shot of me, on the Tournament Player’s Championship golf course in Scottsdale. I only had a few occasions to play there, and I managed to be invited there on three occasions.Continue reading “Golf Tale”

Connecting

Sometimes, when you least expect it, something happens in your life that takes you aback. It infuses you with a totally new and different perspective. I had one of those moments at breakfast yesterday morning. Truth be told, I was feeling a little down on myself for hurting so much even though I have reallyContinue reading “Connecting”

It’s Wrong

Somewhere in the Cosmos there is a Karmic force that never let’s a wrongdoer get off scot-free. I truly want to believe in this Karma thing, even when I see dumbasses seem to get away with doing the wrong things with no regard for consequences. They will pay. Sooner or later. The Senate House MinorityContinue reading “It’s Wrong”

I’m Calling Your Bluff

I have decided that the very next time that I get a recorded message when I am calling ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE that says that I need to listen carefully because the menu options have changed, it will be the proverbial “last straw” in my bale. You absolutely cannot tell me that you change yourContinue reading “I’m Calling Your Bluff”
