Hitchhiking

Believe it or not, young people, it used to be a thing. You could go literally anywhere in the contiguous forty-nine states by merely standing on the side of the road and putting your thumb out. We thought nothing at all of climbing into a stranger’s car, doing drugs with them, and trusting them withContinue reading “Hitchhiking”

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”

Loving Life

A sunny day today and temps in the fifties. I am ready to go get a BBQ for the porch. I just made a batch of my famous marinara and will be inviting Karen’s sister accompanied by the infamous ADOGG over for Sunday dinner. Caesar Salad, a little scampi appetizer followed by Chicken Parm andContinue reading “Loving Life”

The Best Medicine

Laughter. I really love to watch a great comedian or comedienne do their thing. I truly believe being able to make people laugh is one of the greater gifts from above. I remember as a kid, the greats were Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Dick Van Dyke, and of course Lucy and Desi. Jack Benny, AbbottContinue reading “The Best Medicine”

You Can’t Say They Didn’t Warn Us

It has been going on for months now as things have now escalated to the point Jo-Jo has warned us that war is “imminent.” No shit.   Glad you know it. I don’t see he has much of a choice in the matter; I don’t think any president would have a choice placed in theContinue reading “You Can’t Say They Didn’t Warn Us”

Art Imitates Life

They finally did it. It feels like years since the Law and Order episode that showed the gun makers get sued. Except they won. They always won. They enjoyed the same kind of horseshit immunity from prosecution that cigarette makers did. Zoom forward to 2022. To recount the mass shootings in the world is toContinue reading “Art Imitates Life”

Super Sunday

One of my fondest memories from living in England was staying for six months in a very old English manor house in Oxford when we first arrived. When you are in a military family, it was the moving that got to you after a while. Girlfriends, schools, countries; always changing. So when we arrived inContinue reading “Super Sunday”

Go You Reds!

I can’t help it. The one sports team that I will follow as often as I am able is the Manchester United Football Club. Ever since I watched Georgie Best, the mercurial striker for United beat Geoff Hurst and West Ham in 1967, I have been a loyal maniac for the lads whenever and whereverContinue reading “Go You Reds!”

Never a Good Thing

When the President tells Americans to leave a country, in this case Ukraine. It is not a small country, and with no one’s help, I think there are plenty of countries that could kick their ass, but JoJo seems to want to get his hands into everything before he finishes his one term in office.Continue reading “Never a Good Thing”

Scary

They say the International Space Station will fall from orbit soon. I know all the stories of how there are thousands of satellites falling out of the sky and how they burn up and do not make it to Earth. But what if?… Good news. People are actually starting to go back to work inContinue reading “Scary”
