Check This Out

Some nut job in where else, Oklahoma, ate a last meal which he did not deserve. That’s the story. Not that he admitted remorse for his unforgivable crime of placing a three year-old boy who had just wet the bed, on a scorching furnace, and then raising him high in the air and slamming himContinue reading “Check This Out”

Why I Do It

I get asked why I play these little charity gigs for Nursing Homes and Rehab Centers and now, I have opened up communication with Dayton Children’s Hospital to see if I can please a few kids this Christmas. All you have to do is walk into SycamoreSpring Nursing Home. The first thing you notice isContinue reading “Why I Do It”

Selling Life

By now, the secret’s out. T-cells. It appears to be the single greatest medical discovery in decades, and I just saw the story that made its way to Sunday Morning on CBS. What really stood out to me in the story was the parents’ fierce determination to try anything and everything possible to save theirContinue reading “Selling Life”

It’s Happening Folks

Whether we want it or not, one of the great rivers of the world, the Mighty Mississippi River, is drying up. Believe it. But there’s no global warming. Right. We have seen smaller lakes (Lake Meade outside Las Vegas comes to mind) and rivers start to disappear, but this river is crucial to our country.Continue reading “It’s Happening Folks”

Rainy Season

The painters show up for day two and they already have the walls, trim, and ceilings done with the first coat. So they are really going at a fast clip and it looks like we might get it wrapped up by Friday. One of the lads professes to be a Fighting Irish football fan. IContinue reading “Rainy Season”

Hunger

I don’t eat nearly as much as I used to anymore. I’m just not as hungry as I used to be. Oh, every so often I will overindulge with a potent indica strain and then I will put on the feedbag. And I am always amazed at how delicious everything tastes, and how cool theContinue reading “Hunger”

Reason

I admire people who use reason as their first instinct before deciding on a course of action. I admire them because I am usually the opposite in my reactions and following actions. It is a major flaw of mine (I know I just shocked those of you who see me as the perfect male, butContinue reading “Reason”

The Return of the Satin Latin

I left the hospital yesterday afternoon but not before I started walking my way out because it was taking too long for someone to bring me a wheelchair. Something about reducing the hospital’s liability. Sounded to me like they were just buying time. Time that I don’t have since this was my 23rd invasive surgery.Continue reading “The Return of the Satin Latin”

Be on the Alert

Why? Why do you want to live life continually “on the alert” for things which may or may not, happen? Go gives a flying shit anyway (as if shit could fly)? I am drawing the line on alerts. I just got an alert from my bank telling me “you have no alerts at this time.”Continue reading “Be on the Alert”

Inefficiency

I can’t stand it. The idea invokes failure. Who are the idiot architects in the grocery store game who are responsible for planning out the best (most efficient) place to put in the restrooms and pharmacies? “Put them farthest away so injured and sick people have to limp their infirmed bodies all the way toContinue reading “Inefficiency”
