Funny Haha

Where has all the laughter gone? Here I go sounding a thousand years old again, but who is next in the long line of super funnymen or women? Used to be there were a handful of comics that were at the top and then it tapered down. In the 50’s you had George Burns, JackContinue reading “Funny Haha”

Go You Reds!

I can’t help it. The one sports team that I will follow as often as I am able is the Manchester United Football Club. Ever since I watched Georgie Best, the mercurial striker for United beat Geoff Hurst and West Ham in 1967, I have been a loyal maniac for the lads whenever and whereverContinue reading “Go You Reds!”

It’s Fast Approaching

2022. The New Year. I suppose the older I get, the longer I take to review, revile, and rejoice at surviving yet another calendar year with all the obstacles standing in our way. With the return of high pandemic numbers, it literally seems like it was just January that we started this whole thing. Here’sContinue reading “It’s Fast Approaching”

Helicopter

The year was 1979 and I had been in Las Vegas for a couple years of pure hedonism. One of my many adventures happened, as most did, fueled by alcohol and drugs. I had a very rich girlfriend (my girlfriend of five years had walked out on me. She had every right). I was aContinue reading “Helicopter”

Cannibalism

Here’s a real Up with Life moment. The painters started today and they are good. Fast, clean, and efficient. I sat in the living room and turned on the telly to kill some time. I put on the headphones and treated myself to the documentary Cannibal Island. Based on one of the most horrifying crimesContinue reading “Cannibalism”

Remind Me

If I ever find myself in Georgia and if I happen to walk one inch outside of the street crosswalk, do not appoint Linda Dunikoski to my case. Here. Here’s my wrists. Lock me up. Now she is by no means a beauty queen, and certainly not a doctor, but the way she cut downContinue reading “Remind Me”

Law and Disorder

I am one who does not use this blog to influence anyone or air my own political beliefs. There is enough divisiveness in this country already. I like to have fun with this medium and share some cool stories and observances. I purposely stay away from making this a political forum. I can’t help butContinue reading “Law and Disorder”

Best Gift I Ever Gave

Do you remember the best thing you ever did in your entire life? Looking back at every gift I ever gave or received, one stands out high above the others. I was in a very self-destructive stage of my time spent in Las Vegas (big shock there, right?) and I had been walked out on,Continue reading “Best Gift I Ever Gave”

Reason

I admire people who use reason as their first instinct before deciding on a course of action. I admire them because I am usually the opposite in my reactions and following actions. It is a major flaw of mine (I know I just shocked those of you who see me as the perfect male, butContinue reading “Reason”

Even Ripley Won’t Believe This!

We are still in the stages of unpacking and I get to the box with my important papers in it. I was needing my birth certificate to present so I can get an Ohio driver’s license. For the very first time in my life (it only took 67 years) I actually read my certificate. MyContinue reading “Even Ripley Won’t Believe This!”
