Remakes

I won’t pursue this subject on any other level than motion pictures. Music has so many remakes, but like with movies, most are stinko, or at least never come close to recapturing the magic with a sequel. Before I start getting into my personal favorites, let’s acknowledge that there is still one and only oneContinue reading “Remakes”

Corny

Ever since we moved to southern Ohio, I am turning into a real cornball. I leave my left arm free when I slowly drive through my neighborhood. So I can do the “neighbor wave” in case one of my peeps throw me a wave as I make it home. I eat at Bob Evans sometimes.Continue reading “Corny”

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”

The Return of Maddogg

We know the Satin Latin is back, but guess who showed up at an open mic tonight in the coolest little venue I have ever lifted a guitar in? Maddogg is back. Two days removed from the Cardiovascular post-op ICU I finally make my way out to a little town called Pleasant Plain. (I wishContinue reading “The Return of Maddogg”

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”

Second Chances

There are no second chances. We are undeterred as we push forward with our second offer on a house. We were really hoping the inspection done this morning would be free of any major problems which would cost us, but alas, we have put a repair list together for the sellers to address, or notContinue reading “Second Chances”

Dayton

Years ago, (31 to be exact), I would on occasion make the trip down I-75 from Toledo to Cincinnati. Cincy is where Karen was born and grew up to age 18. Now, I know things change over time, but I am totally blown away by how big the city of Dayton has grown, and IContinue reading “Dayton”

Ooh La La!

This is a repost of this blog from 5/17/21. I was going through my “stats” and evidently my mad computer skillz have once-again hindered my efforts. I will be reposting the others as needed. As a songwriter and an author, I have occasion to cross over. I love listening to, and playing the “story” songsContinue reading “Ooh La La!”

Back With a Vengeance

I hope you all had a great weekend wherever you are. We are back home and if all goes as expected, we will be making our escape from yet another record-breaking heat wave in the Valley by late July. I have been shopping online and am glad to see the housing market in Ohio isContinue reading “Back With a Vengeance”

Farms

I love the idea of being a farmer; it is a very romantic notion. I can picture myself riding around on horseback over thousands of acres of land as huge steel machines belch smoke and harvest more money, er, crops for me. I can see me sitting on the third-level porch of my mansion, smokingContinue reading “Farms”
