The Man Who Would Be King

One of my favorite movies of all-time and an apt descriptor for King James, aka Lebron James, professional basketball star. Lebron is approaching the all-time NBA scoring record held by the much-revered Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Lebron is supposed to be here. He was anointed at age 16 and has pretty much lived up to theContinue reading “The Man Who Would Be King”

Better Late?

If you call me up and don’t start speaking within the first five seconds, my ass is gonna hang up on your ass and I will block your number for all-time. Pet peeve? Probably more like a foible. Although I am actually avoiding the Old Man Syndrome where everything irritates you, and that is probablyContinue reading “Better Late?”

I Know I Shouldn’t

I know better. But I can’t stop a smile from taking over my face when I hear of an  armed criminal being terminated by an honest citizen who lawfully stopped anyone else (aka non-criminals) from being harmed at the gas station and should get a raise as far as I am concerned.. The world isContinue reading “I Know I Shouldn’t”

One More Reason..

I don’t live in Alaska—I do not want to die of a polar bear attack. Unfortunately, a mother and her one-year old baby had to pay the price for man’s encroachment on polar bears, eliminating fruitful lands and driving the bears to find food wherever they can find it. They found this particular bear andContinue reading “One More Reason..”

Careful What You Ask For

All I have heard now for months on end, as if it is some sort of magic cure for everything, is wait until the Republicans win the House, then you’ll see… See what? You can’t even decide on who the next Speaker of the House will be. I gotta be honest with you. Unless thereContinue reading “Careful What You Ask For”

And The Beat Goes On…

Another child has left this world without getting a chance to live their life first. Shot down in Houston, Texas, a five year-old boy was killed. By an eight year-old boy. I wonder if the kid had led a rough street life of crime, if he had a lengthy rap sheet, or he was justContinue reading “And The Beat Goes On…”

Merry Christmas

I know; it was yesterday, but I was too busy having fun and enjoying our holiday Turkey Dinner with just the two of us, the Diaz Brothers, and a twenty-six pound turkey. The snow is about a foot deep everywhere, and it doesn’t look like there is any 2022 city budget money left to roustContinue reading “Merry Christmas”

Octagon

“Two women enter, one woman leave.” Entering first is that scrappy little gun rights activist Lauren Boebert from Colorado. Behind her, Marjorie Taylor Greene, the only woman on planet Earth past or present, that can make Sarah Palin look like a brilliant orator. Both staunch MAGA Republicans, the press, who has nothing better to doContinue reading “Octagon”

Close Call

So I decide to brave the traffic and the impending Winter Storm of the Century if you believe the forecasters, and headed north on I-75 to the humane society which I represent, and on  the way, I spied a new building sitting out on its own. I could see kennels and a large play areaContinue reading “Close Call”

I Can’t Resist

Evidently an executive from Nike was caught getting oral service from a subordinate in a gymnasium. Just do it. I know there are people who follow and read my daily blog, so didn’t you see where I wrote against going to any third-world countries? Fuck, our own country isn’t safe. What the hell made youContinue reading “I Can’t Resist”
