School Safety

Talk about a contradiction of terms. Safety measures have come a long way in schools, but when you look closely, not very far at all. You had a school bully who kept the rest of the students in line. There were hall monitors, composed of teachers with bad attitudes because they would much rather beContinue reading “School Safety”

I Totally Get It

I’m an asshole. And the older I get, the less patient I am becoming. I don’t like it. I am not a rude, intrusive person by nature, but I think my condition is caused by my perception of time. There isn’t much more of it left after a massive heart attack, a leg amputation, andContinue reading “I Totally Get It”

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”

Canes

Walking sticks, whatever. Now that I am a bona fide cane-carrier on occasion when my leg is sore, I can speak with some knowledge on this subject, unlike most everything else I talk about. I have this cool walking stick with a compass on top. It is trimmed in gold and is actually pretty badass,Continue reading “Canes”

Pick Your Poison

Here is a stab at an old Hank classic: Also as promised (don’t stop me now, I’m on a roll), here is the short story Restraint: Restraint It was a sunny Saturday afternoon and I was taking advantage of the bank’s extended weekend hours to transferContinue reading “Pick Your Poison”

My Favorite Sandwich

When I was training to be a chef in the Las Vegas casinos in the late 70’s I had to perform and master all the stations of a kitchen. My final exam for the boucher (butcher) station was the breakdown of a pig corpse into, well everything edible. Pork rinds to sweetbreads. Now breaking downContinue reading “My Favorite Sandwich”

Culling the Herd

As the Covid virus continues to morph into more transmittable deadly strains like the Delta variant, once again crippling our nation, there are still people (more than half of the US population) who are not getting vaccinated. Fine. More for the rest of us. I wouldn’t kiss your ass to get a shot, because frankly,Continue reading “Culling the Herd”

Truckers

I have been on the record that I do not care for semi-trailers and large trucks on the freeways when I am trying to get someplace. One of my proposals involves limiting the hours that I will allow trucks to be on busy roads and freeways when I am on them. The wife just tellsContinue reading “Truckers”

The Friendly Skies

Where did they go? People are going absolutely batshit crazy on planes. If you know me, my solution comes in one word. Parachute. I hope they increase the penalties to include mandatory jail time and a felony on the record. The Domestic Despot Osama bin Karen and I were just discussing this same subject notContinue reading “The Friendly Skies”

Firstly, my audio reading of my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s!: Secondly, check out the prologue of my novel If Only. You’ll be amused and surprised at how the planet would look like If Only… The Earth was still an embryo. Ah stirred awake in the morning mist which had begun to creep intoContinue reading “Prologue”
