Heroes

Everyone has their own set of heroes. I am like many, with sports heroes prominent in my adulation, but there has always been one constant hero throughout my life. This is a person who has always stood as a symbol of strength and responsibility to me. He has never questioned me or many of theContinue reading “Heroes”

Merry Christmas

I know; it was yesterday, but I was too busy having fun and enjoying our holiday Turkey Dinner with just the two of us, the Diaz Brothers, and a twenty-six pound turkey. The snow is about a foot deep everywhere, and it doesn’t look like there is any 2022 city budget money left to roustContinue reading “Merry Christmas”

Paying the Bills

Many people struggling. Yet another reason for our political parties to come together as a unit and quit fighting like two thirteen-year old girls. Next thing you know, we’ll be doing each other’s hair and freezing each other’s bras while we smoke ciggies and talk about hunks. Not bloody likely. Man, I thought O.J. SimpsonContinue reading “Paying the Bills”

Bigger Than I Ever Knew

I am on record as saying my big brother Ed is one of my biggest heroes and I always wondered what it would be like to bear the responsibility of having a younger sibling. I had a chance to find out when I was in my late thirties. I was living in Norman, Oklahoma andContinue reading “Bigger Than I Ever Knew”

Faster Food

I have been living on fast food for the past six weeks. I have eaten more burgers, fries, etc. in that time than I did in my entire life except high school, when I would eat about 8 Whoppers before and after football practice. And then go home and eat dinner with the family. ThatContinue reading “Faster Food”

Hard Cider

Everywhere you look, hard ciders are in. If a flavor in nature can be reproduced chemically in a laboratory, that flavor is on its way. When I was a thirteen-year old kid in England I discovered the best thing (besides birds) that a young kid could get his hands on, was hard cider, or justContinue reading “Hard Cider”

My Bad

Since I spent most of the day bringing my wife back to the land of the living, I did not get a chance to tape my next audio installment. So I am doing it now and as soon as I finish off this celebratory bowl of Sativa, I will read the Preface for the letterContinue reading “My Bad”

Mea Culpa

I apologize. I didn’t even have to receive a thump upside my noggin by Karen. In my post this past Sunday on musicals, I referenced a “gay gene” contributing for my love of the theater. You would think in this day and age (that is an OLD person’s saying) that a learned individual (guilty asContinue reading “Mea Culpa”
