A great characteristic to possess. People possess it in varying degrees. You can have an extremely lazy and unmotivated mother who will turn into a veritable killing machine if you try to mess with one of her kids. Even though she is too damn lazy to properly care for them. I am trying to thinkContinue reading “Tenacity”

Mr. 500

Not this post. Yesterday’s post was the 500th post I have been credited with making on my blog. That’s like writing a book, which I found to be one of the hardest things I ever did in my life. Since my posts average around 500 words each, I have written 250,000 and I am stillContinue reading “Mr. 500”


Have you noticed how I have purposefully avoided saying anything at all about my beloved Man U Reds? Nor will I, lest I start to even begin to fathom the depths at which this once-proud, once globally-feared organization has sunk so low. “Oh pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth”… I caught a glimpse ofContinue reading “Tidbits”


Don’t ask me how I do it. Confidence. Anyway, I move out here after spending the better part of three years in a hospital bed or rehab bed or my own bed and LazyBoy recliner. They were not easy. Least of all on my wife. But I felt great after two shows in two daysContinue reading “Branding”

Catching Up

Whew! It has been a very busy week and today we both felt it. We ended up laying around and watching movies and reruns of Special Victims Unit. On top of that the temperature dropped as snow appeared, probably for one of the last times as Spring takes center stage. Believe I will post someContinue reading “Catching Up”

Beautiful Day

They are all beautiful, but today was hell-good on the weather front. 72 degrees. Sunny. Where was I? The golf course is where I should have been, but I was laid up again with my damn stump and the sore that is posing a problem with me walking. Heading in to my prosthetist tomorrow. HopefullyContinue reading “Beautiful Day”


In your sea-green feline eyes In the perfume on your graceful neck In the sweet caress of Faith and Safety. From all not you Two souls in flames. Streaking A frozen crystal alpine lake Hot cheeks touching Snow melting And you never even told me your name. Lost. ***** Happy Friday one and all. ThankContinue reading “Lost”

Happy Valentine’s Day

I got a call last night from someone who had taken an order for 2 dozen roses for me to deliver to my special girl yesterday and they said sorry but I was not in their delivery radius. I looked over to Karen and she knew already. Thirty-five years of marriage will do that toContinue reading “Happy Valentine’s Day”

Open Mic Night

You are going to have to take my word for it, because I left my phone in the Highlander (“You will always be weaker than I, Highlander!”) and I didn’t get ADOGG to video me. It was at a brewpub in Cincinnati called Fretboards. The cool thing about this place is they only want youContinue reading “Open Mic Night”

That’s One Way to Look at It

Our boy Putin is warning that the US is planning “interventions” in the Ukraine and this could possibly lead to “heightened aggression” in the area. Oh really dumbass? Ya think? And how convenient of you to cover your ass by firing the first salvo at Jo-Jo’s backside. Actually, the correct political move to make, andContinue reading “That’s One Way to Look at It”
