Memories

I’d better write about this subject while I still have a horse in the race. I have always had a great memory. Of course, the Domestic Despot Karen says I have a very selective memory. I beg to differ. It’s just getting worse. I can remember the most minute details of the most immemorable timesContinue reading “Memories”

Boo-Hoo

Crying is one of my favorite emotions. I find it to be at once cathartic and cleansing. Laughing until you cry is the best. I’m trying to think of the last time I laughed so hard I cried, but it has been awhile. It seems like when I was a young man I did itContinue reading “Boo-Hoo”

Ice

Where would we be if there was no such thing as ice? Warm beer. (But if you know anything at all about beer, that is a good thing). But no cold lager. Them’s fighting words. Ice storms would just be storms and those old ice skates in your closet would never have been made inContinue reading “Ice”

Panic on the Titanic

I just got finished watching James Cameron’s Titanic for about the 100th time. It never gets old and I find the storyline as captivating as any. But why was there so much panic on the Titanic? I understand concern and worry, but there was no need to panic on the luxury liner. The trio ofContinue reading “Panic on the Titanic”

Watching the Telly

I sat down to watch a show while the Domestic Despot was taking a nap. I’m cruising along watching a streaming channel (Netflix) and I hit the exit button on the remote so I can check out Hulu. But the channel will not let me exit. My wishes are being held hostage until I clickContinue reading “Watching the Telly”

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”

Courage

If you are brave, do you have courage? Not necessarily. You can act brave, but not have the courage of your convictions. You can appear brave and not have courage, well you get the picture. I have done things that look courageous but actually scared the living shit out of me. Stupid stuff, mainly onContinue reading “Courage”

Did Hell Freeze Over?

I know I have been a little groggy with medications, but what did I miss? Ronaldo was benched. Messi was traded. Now I am not an expert, but you know that silly little thing won’t stop me from chiming in. In a year when trade rumors and gossip are filled with the biggest names inContinue reading “Did Hell Freeze Over?”

Mentality

I was torn deciding on a name for this blog, thinking first just to name it Mental Health. But that’s crazy. Mental health is one of today’s hot topics and deservedly so. More and more celebrities are endorsing the admission of a serious medical condition of various degrees and diagnoses. You know what else isContinue reading “Mentality”

Turn the Page

Not only a badass Bob Seger song, but a lesson to us all. Turn the page. How long will the politicians continue their ridiculously antiquated us-against-them infantile horseshit? Republicans’ asses are chafed because Obama kicked their asses and now here comes Joltin’ Joe from Kokomo. Democrats are chafed because Trump outmaneuvered and out campaigned themContinue reading “Turn the Page”
