What am I Thankful For?

Let’s start by beating the same old drums like Keith Moon pounded his Ludwigs. Loud. Educators: Pay them. Healthcare workers: Pay them. Stop here for a second. One group ensures there IS a future for us to enjoy, and the other group does their best to prolong our existence here. If those aren’t things weContinue reading “What am I Thankful For?”

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”

God Bless

G.B. Whoever invented the little doggie wheels that allow dogs with inoperable legs to run like the wind and feel like a doggie should; happy, unafraid, and just like all the other doggies. My heart sings when I see people with these animals and believe Maddogg when he says these people have spots reserved forContinue reading “God Bless”

Taking Care of Each Other

Stewardship. It only takes a few of my blogs before you know that is a big word with me. We take care of our own and each other when we get old and infirmed, but we continue to destroy the planet and you asshole idiots who wouldn’t see a climate change unless it threatened yourContinue reading “Taking Care of Each Other”

Burned in My Memory

Out of the sum total of our lives, there are a few things that are burned in our memories in varying degrees. Your first date. Your first kiss. Your wedding, children, I could go on and on. Unless you are like the Domestic Despot, my beloved Karen, and can remember everything in detail, but sheContinue reading “Burned in My Memory”

Thanks

I was practicing my playlist for my upcoming gig(s) and I thought I haven’t publicly thanked anyone in a while. To the healthcare professionals who continue to fight disease and keep us safe, gracias. To the politicians who know right from wrong and follow through in their actions with that in mind, merci beaucoup. ToContinue reading “Thanks”

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”

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”

Nice People

I am starting to sound like a broken record. I can count on two fingers the people who I cannot consider nice or otherwise on our road trip out here, as they were more disengaged than anything. But all the way out here and since arriving in Ohio, it is almost The Stepford State. SmilesContinue reading “Nice People”

Ouch

Or like my Uncle Mike used to say, “two big ouches!” No, not the pain of umpteen unnecessary needles for yet another useless lab, not the pain-in-the-ass newbie who won’t let me even try to get a few hours of sleep, and certainly not the minimal inconvenience of having six stents placed in my heart.Continue reading “Ouch”
