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”

Choices

At least in a democratic society we are supposed to have many choices; that is what a democracy is all about after all. For some unknown reason, no one has ever approached me to ask my opinions on Roe v Wade. Here they are: Firstly, no man should be a part of the legislative processContinue reading “Choices”

Hanging Out

Pretty lazy day but everybody seems to be in a hurry to me. I guess because, ever since I retired, I have no time constraints, so I am not in a hurry anymore…forever. It’s official: All the Christmas decorations, inside and out, are packed away for next year, but my wonderful soulmate has acquiesced toContinue reading “Hanging Out”

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”

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”

Meat Eater

I am a carnivore and I have already eaten way more meat than I ever should have eaten, but I make no excuses. My father and Grandfather were both butchers and worked in slaughterhouses. I remember being horrified at the sight of the cows being led up the chutes and the man shooting them inContinue reading “Meat Eater”

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”

Corn

Who doesn’t love corn? Creamed, on the cob, or popped with that warm butter-like substance they put on it at the movie theater. Who doesn’t love a warm slab of cornbread wet with butter, and oozing with sweet honey? We first taste corn either through Gerber Baby Foods strained corn, or Tony the Tiger’s CornContinue reading “Corn”

Faster Food

I have been living on fast food for the past six weeks. I have eaten more burgers, fries, etc. in that time than I did in my entire life except high school, when I would eat about 8 Whoppers before and after football practice. And then go home and eat dinner with the family. ThatContinue reading “Faster Food”
