Snapshots

Because I have travelled extensively in my life, occasionally I will have someone ask me what is the prettiest place I have ever been? I honestly have so many that I will just name a few: I was in a ski lift coming down a mountain in Breckenridge, Colorado, when the sun sent its lastContinue reading “Snapshots”

Balls

Now, we’ll be going over several notable examples on this subject in this blog. Now there are baseballs, all other athletic sports’ balls, and then there are the balls it takes to stand in the face of certain death and tell a certain Russian warship commander exactly what he could do to himself as aContinue reading “Balls”

Unrealistic Expectations

The realm in which I exist according to the Domestic Despot. As I told you the other day, I always send an email to Robin Meade asking her to show up at one of my gigs just to see the look on my wife’s face. At that point I would exist in the realm ofContinue reading “Unrealistic Expectations”

Kung Fu Boo

In the early seventies, kung fu was big. Bruce Lee had every kid jumping and mewling like felines before pouncing on their prey. Dojo’s popped up everywhere and kids name Kyle and Trevor were all of a sudden badasses. I would learn my own lesson from a kung fu practitioner years later, and I rememberContinue reading “Kung Fu Boo”

Small Potatoes

Don’t get me wrong. I am a big first amendment guy and of course I believe in free speech. For every voice on the planet, but somebody PLEASE stick a sock in the misguided mouth of Marjorie Greene. Turn the page. Challenge all the amendments you want. You are ineligible for re-election. Get over yourself.Continue reading “Small Potatoes”

There is a major controversy in the realm of collegiate sports which has developed into a firestorm of debate on the legitimacy of the national collegiate swimming championship recently won by Lia Thomas. I know I sound like I don’t, but I have always believed in acceptance and inclusivity. I am sensitive to the issuesContinue reading “Fair or Unfair?”

Traveling Man

Not just a classic John Fogerty song, but another signpost along my own itinerary, which was unbeknownst to me. I am posting another short-short-story this time from a lake in Greece, which I found historically captivating and exhausting at once. I love Greek cuisine. Remember we are dealing with the emotion jaded, so have atContinue reading “Traveling Man”

Mom’s

I was on another unknown road I took on my personal odyssey in the seventies. We were up in the beautiful Wasatch mountains of Utah. A beer in one hand, a doobie in the other, and my German Shorthaired Pointer Chopper with his head out the passenger window, pink tongue flapping in the wind. IContinue reading “Mom’s”

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”

Innocence

I used innocence representing the letter “I” in my book EMOTIONS: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! The story, which will be posted in its entirety in tomorrow night’s blog, details my own coming of age story. See how I went from maddpup to maddogg. The setting is England and a lovely, rare summer that graced us.Continue reading “Innocence”
