Shame on Me?

This is a story direct from my seventh grade love life. I had just won the only championship in my entire athletic career which ended under the scalpel of yet another surgeon. But then, in school, I was able to date 8th graders which was a really big deal. Not necessarily for me, but toContinue reading “Shame on Me?”

Happy People

…are so much more fun to be around than assholes. Effortless smiles and laughter. I had a blast yesterday talking with, and playing music for, some residents of the Heartland of Miamisburg ProMedica Nursing home. It was a small, but spirited group of listeners and I had them requesting songs and singing along (American PieContinue reading “Happy People”

Must Be Tough Getting Old

I know, we are all getting older by the minute, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it affect your mindset. You don’t have to act old even if you are. By that I mean don’t do all the old stuff people expect old people to do. Stop going out to eat dinner atContinue reading “Must Be Tough Getting Old”

Maddogg is a Marketing Genius

(blush) I guess it’s not the same effect if I make the statement myself. I have been killing myself for the past three weeks practicing the Johnny Cash classic “I’ve Been Everywhere.” Believe me when I say that I have had enough of the song, Karen, Bruiser, and Murphy have had their fill of theContinue reading “Maddogg is a Marketing Genius”

Enough is Enough

The little lawn gnome BabyHead Putin is at it again. Enough is enough with detaining Brittany Griner. Call it timing, coincidence, or whatever, but JoJo is heading to Asia just as our favorite North Korean maniac Kim Jong-un has decided on launching a long-range missile test. Go figure. Pakistan just got hit with an outbreakContinue reading “Enough is Enough”

Is it Safe?

Not in this country. Not anymore. As if the recent senseless violent shootings weren’t enough, now throw in the terrifying reality that we, each and every one of us, are at risk of being killed indiscriminately anywhere we go. There’s a pleasant thought to carry with you on this fine Tuesday. It just isn’t enoughContinue reading “Is it Safe?”

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”

Observations

I understand that China, that forward-thinking, last bastion of devious actions, is not very happy with the World Health Organization’s Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (now that’s a mouthful). They do what dumbasses do when they don’t fully understand someone else’s words or ideas. They censure them. Dumbasses. The only thing the doctor said was thatContinue reading “Observations”

Good Karma

Everyone needs it. Karma is tangible to those of us who believe in it. It is inevitable. Putin needs good karma if anyone ever did. He was humiliated to the point of pity at his Big Day celebration of his “swift and efficient” defeat of Ukraine. Except the Ukrainians didn’t get the memo. They didContinue reading “Good Karma”

Hitchhiking

Believe it or not, young people, it used to be a thing. You could go literally anywhere in the contiguous forty-nine states by merely standing on the side of the road and putting your thumb out. We thought nothing at all of climbing into a stranger’s car, doing drugs with them, and trusting them withContinue reading “Hitchhiking”
