The Break-in

When I was living in my nice condo in Las Vegas I was doing quite well taking care of myself, and if I didn’t do a good job, the three women who lived in  our four-plex babied and mothered me, so life was good. I had this girl I met at the Sahara come homeContinue reading “The Break-in”

The Mods and Rockers

Growing up in the mid-to-late sixties in England was awesome. The life off-base was totally different, and a lot less safe for American teenagers. On base, there was zero crime. But if you ventured out, you might find yourself right in the middle of something between the two dominant groups of the time. The ModsContinue reading “The Mods and Rockers”

Smarty Pants

I’ve always been too damn smart for my own good. I admit it. Not proud of it, either. As soon as I was able to enunciate, my big brother would have me read aloud every single word of the “Acknowledgements” of one of his high-school level books, even the word “Acknowledgements.” Then he would makeContinue reading “Smarty Pants”

The Latest

What the hell is it with everyone taking plane videos of rude or unruly passengers when they are travelling? Watch the movie. Nap. If someone is being a real asshole and threatening to disrupt my itinerary, then you have my blessing to throw them out of the plane when it climbs to 10,000 feet. SoContinue reading “The Latest”

Pinch Me

I have to make sure I am not seeing things. Did I see a headline that said Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick told a sob story about losing all their money in the infamous Bernie Madoff’s machinations? Boo fucking hoo. Here is the All-American boy who has been in every movie ever made since heContinue reading “Pinch Me”

Think About It

`1Two million people as of about an hour ago, are without power in the wake of Hurricane Ian. I knew two Ian’s in my lifetime. One was a pussy, and the other was one of the meanest SOB’s you would ever run across. Best be left alone and not to be fucked with. Kind ofContinue reading “Think About It”

Beauty

          Here is an excerpt from my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! titled aptly enough… Beauty It was another Friday night in Las Vegas, and I was looking to fall in love. My third girlfriend in as many months had given me my pink slip and I was tiring of the Strip prostitutes withContinue reading “Beauty”

The Blame Game

Everyone does it. Not many people are evolved enough to go through life without blaming someone or something. For the most part, I am good with my spot on the totem pole of athletes. Nowhere near the top, but also no way near the bottom either. When you combine a fierce resolve to win withContinue reading “The Blame Game”

Anticipation

I’m ready as I’ll ever be for my audition tomorrow night. I have the six songs I was sent that the band is using to determine their new lead singer. I have checked out all the videos the band recorded and I even skipped my weekly open mics that I do to practice. I willContinue reading “Anticipation”

Matrimony

Finally. A subject that, after thirty-five years, I can speak of with a modicum of experience. As I have stated previously, I was the absolute last person on earth who would ever even consider the idea of matrimony. No way. Not for me. Love ‘em and leave ‘em. Although truth be told, it more timesContinue reading “Matrimony”
