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”

Info Overload

I hope this is not, but first, check out a W&B session song: Now here is the short story The REAL Summer of Love: The Real Summer of Love           We lived in a small two-story house at the end of a shady country lane. There were three houses actually, all similarly constructed of darkContinue reading “Info Overload”

Staying Put

I make no apologies for the way I am wired. You must take your complaints to a much higher level than myself. In the height of my career in restaurant management, I was flattered to receive several offers from other restaurants and I took five flights for interviews. The first was in Charlotte, North Carolina.Continue reading “Staying Put”

Watching the Telly

I sat down to watch a show while the Domestic Despot was taking a nap. I’m cruising along watching a streaming channel (Netflix) and I hit the exit button on the remote so I can check out Hulu. But the channel will not let me exit. My wishes are being held hostage until I clickContinue reading “Watching the Telly”

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!”

The End of the Innocence

I am sure in some point in time, I will record and post a few Don Henley tunes that I cover. Man, what a voice. A big musical influence on me and my style, asContinue reading “The End of the Innocence”

Grandpas

I was not particularly close with my Mom’s father. I seemed to be at the end of a long line of nieces and nephews all vying for attention from The Man. I was okay with that. I know he was a tough guy working at a slaughterhouse for many years. I guess that’s where myContinue reading “Grandpas”

Tobacco

I don’t get it, never have for that matter. Why smoke tobacco? I totally understand smoking marijuana; it has medicinal properties that I can personally attest to, with no resultant deaths. I understand it is very addicting. It definitely contributed to my own mother’s early death. That point was driven home when one of myContinue reading “Tobacco”
