Maddogg Night at the Lucky Star Brewery

I’m a bit late posting, which I really like to do by 12 midnight Eastern Standard Time (EST). However, by the time I said goodbye to the great people at the ‘Star and loaded my guitar and a few books and T-shirts I still have left, I got home and got stoned, of course, thenContinue reading “Maddogg Night at the Lucky Star Brewery”

Just to be Clear

Enough with wild animals eating children. This time, an alligator was the guilty party. Once again, I am horrified and piteous of the parents of the eight-year old boy. To see the creature float lazily away downriver with the lifeless (God, tell me he was lifeless) body of their son is the stuff of lifelongContinue reading “Just to be Clear”

Stay With Me Now

No question that I am, and always have been a big dog lover starting with our family pets to our two Cocker Spaniel brothers tearing through the house tonight. I am seeing far too many stories of children and adults being killed by dogs. Before I go any further in my own thought process, IContinue reading “Stay With Me Now”

Shaking My Head

An entire family of four from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan have gone missing. In a case that could very well have come from a TV crime show, and I would know, I’ve seen a few of ‘em, this is scary shit. The family left home without taking or caring for their pets. They leftContinue reading “Shaking My Head”

Board Games

I didn’t talk to my stepfather for two weeks because he beat me in chess one time. It had taken me years to get to the point where I could finally beat him and like the terrible winner I was, I didn’t let a day go by without reminding him who was the chess masterContinue reading “Board Games”

Knowing When to Quit

Never. I would love to say I am such a noble individual and that I do not believe in quitting under any circumstances. I would dearly love to say it, but it is a falsehood. I have quit at certain times in my life, or more accurately, I just didn’t care enough to fight orContinue reading “Knowing When to Quit”

Excitement

In six days the Domestic Despot and I will travel north to Dayton to watch Hank Williams, Jr. I am just as excited to see Ashley McBryde. She really blows my dress up. What is not to want about a whiskey-drinkin’, ass-kickin’, redheaded woman who sings like a bird? I’ll take two, please. Alas andContinue reading “Excitement”

Festivals

I blissfully now live in small-town America  and now that the weather is warming up, you see flyers, posters, billboards, and television ads for every type of festival under the sun. I was at a BBQ festival in Kentucky a couple of weekends ago and had a passable pulled pork sandwich. The newspaper sandwich wrapperContinue reading “Festivals”

Good Cheer, Goodbye

I was spreading it today for a 2 PM show at Sycamoresprings Nursing home. It was a nice turnout and the residents were super cool, and totally engaged. They requested ten songs from me and I was able to do seven of them. I had a dear lady who was so excited and I broughtContinue reading “Good Cheer, Goodbye”

Out of This World

The Final Frontier. Here-tell of a company that plans to open a space hotel by the year 2025. Just that thought puts me in orbit! Sparking up a fatty of some galactic superweed and looking out your bedroom window….at Earth. That would not suck. If it ever became reasonable to do so, I would goContinue reading “Out of This World”
