The Face of Pain

So I am up enjoying my morning coffee, when I turn on the telly to see Margaret Brennan interviewing The Man…Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. My gut reaction? What a fantastic forest green dress Brennan is wearing. Then, as I watched the man describing what is happening in his country, and how, with the U.S. leadingContinue reading “The Face of Pain”

Records

We are obsessed with breaking or setting new records in just about everything. Sports is the obvious choice for records, but we are starting to see the record for stupidest politician being taken from Andrew Johnson, impeached 19th century president. Trump gets the record, and I can’t imagine the American people ever again putting anContinue reading “Records”

A Great Big Hit

from my bong goes to: Aaron Judge, the new York Yankee who will set the Major League Baseball record with only a couple more home runs. He might have even done it and I haven’t seen the news yet tonight. He’s also the first selection because he probably would refuse the hit, leaving more forContinue reading “A Great Big Hit”

Take A Breath

A lot has happened lately and you are entitled to a bit of a breather. It is another gorgeous day in southern Ohio, climbing to a muggy 85 today, but before we left Arizona a year and a half ago, there was a string of 32 straight days in temperatures over 105 degrees! I haveContinue reading “Take A Breath”

Give Me More

I cannot get enough videos of dogs riding skateboards and kicking their legs to keep it going. I could watch those all day. How about stories of getting payback to someone who really deserves it? Revenge, especially for the little guy or girl,  against great odds, is the best. And the more despicable the deservingContinue reading “Give Me More”

Mourning

Obviously, I did not post a blog to mark the season-opening loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. It wasn’t the romp everyone expected, but it was starting to look like if the game were just a bit longer, the score would have been more lopsided. My boys were wearing down against the huge linemen ofContinue reading “Mourning”

 In So Many Words…

I prefer the succinct to the loquacious. In my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! I have taken the genre of the short story and synthesized it. Distilling the product to deliver an entire story within the lines of just a few carefully constructed sentences and paragraphs. I derived my main writing style and inspirationContinue reading ” In So Many Words…”

On and Off Again

It is raining on and off again in southern Ohio, which is why it stays so green here. August 28 is the traditional end of the summer, and here it is rigidly adhered to. Like the space vehicle that sits idle on the launching pad. I read where a majority of Democrats do not wantContinue reading “On and Off Again”

Cheers

I take shots at pretty much everything here, on my little, tiny piece of the internet. I don’t bullshit, despite possessing one of the world’s greatest stockpiles of it. I don’t give a shit about politics; I usually let the Domestic Despot send in our ballots, that is how interested I am. Besides, let’s faceContinue reading “Cheers”

Procrastinating

I am the personification of procrastination….now. Not before I retired. I have severed lucrative business deals because of a tardy meeting. I am such a stickler for it, probably anal about it. But NOW, hell, I might get around to whatever whenever. I like it this way. I get lost all the time. With theContinue reading “Procrastinating”
