The Break-in

When I was living in my nice condo in Las Vegas I was doing quite well taking care of myself, and if I didn’t do a good job, the three women who lived in  our four-plex babied and mothered me, so life was good. I had this girl I met at the Sahara come homeContinue reading “The Break-in”

The Mods and Rockers

Growing up in the mid-to-late sixties in England was awesome. The life off-base was totally different, and a lot less safe for American teenagers. On base, there was zero crime. But if you ventured out, you might find yourself right in the middle of something between the two dominant groups of the time. The ModsContinue reading “The Mods and Rockers”

The Latest

What the hell is it with everyone taking plane videos of rude or unruly passengers when they are travelling? Watch the movie. Nap. If someone is being a real asshole and threatening to disrupt my itinerary, then you have my blessing to throw them out of the plane when it climbs to 10,000 feet. SoContinue reading “The Latest”

Deterrent or Not?

You want to stop crime?  Stiffer deterrents. There are only two things that people understand. Time and death. So murderers will end up as compost and criminals will end up in work camps. You don’t need an infrastructure plan, Jojo. I’ve got all the free labor you want. Empty the prisons; every last one ofContinue reading “Deterrent or Not?”

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

An awesome song by Don Henley and the subject of today’s reading from my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! 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”
