The Face of Pain

So I am up enjoying my morning coffee, when I turn on the telly to see Margaret Brennan interviewing The Man…Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. My gut reaction? What a fantastic forest green dress Brennan is wearing. Then, as I watched the man describing what is happening in his country, and how, with the U.S. leadingContinue reading “The Face of Pain”

Oh No I Didn’t

Oh yes I did. Maddogg was playing his 2-3pm show yesterday at the SycamoreSpring Nursing Home where the average age of my audience was closer to eighty than sixty and I am nearing the end of my performance when I ask the group if they have any requests (careful not to ask for any LASTContinue reading “Oh No I Didn’t”

Beauty

          Here is an excerpt from my book Emotions: Not your Mama’s ABC’s! titled aptly enough… Beauty It was another Friday night in Las Vegas, and I was looking to fall in love. My third girlfriend in as many months had given me my pink slip and I was tiring of the Strip prostitutes withContinue reading “Beauty”

Perspective

The human factor It is one of the things that differentiates us. Watch any episode of Law and Order and you will not see any two eyewitnesses describe the same perp. I think it should be a criminal offense to give an inaccurate description of an offender no matter how good the intentions are. IfContinue reading “Perspective”

God Saved the Queen

Rest well, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen of the United Kingdom has ascended to her rightful place among the pantheon of world leaders. No matter what was happening in this tumultuous world, the Queen was always there, as steady as a rock, representing the United Kingdom with class and grace. When a young American boy,Continue reading “God Saved the Queen”

Military Brat

I am one. I suppose that is where my great respect for the members of our armed forces comes from. I lived on a total of seven different miltary installations in five different countries. The bases were self-sufficient. You had no need to go off base unless it was to break away from the rigidContinue reading “Military Brat”

On and Off Again

It is raining on and off again in southern Ohio, which is why it stays so green here. August 28 is the traditional end of the summer, and here it is rigidly adhered to. Like the space vehicle that sits idle on the launching pad. I read where a majority of Democrats do not wantContinue reading “On and Off Again”

Curtains

I prefer blinds or a shade, because curtains just seem to be so heavy. As long as it blocks out the light, which is the whole point in the first place, n’est ce pas? What good are those flimsy, light window coverings unless you are an exhibitionist? I have blinds and  curtains on my officeContinue reading “Curtains”

          Four Letters for Ted Cruz

My wife of 35 years uses them all the time to me. STFU When you are paid a salary to serve the people of your state, it is meant for more pressing things than complaining to Sesame Street for vaccinating children on their show. Covid is still rampaging through your state, inflation is causing evenContinue reading ”          Four Letters for Ted Cruz”

WTF?

As soulmate to a strong woman, I am deeply offended at anything that offends her. To characterize the recent overturn of Roe v Wade as offensive is offensive to the word offensive. (see what I did there?) You can make lists ‘til the cows come home, but I just want the names of all ofContinue reading “WTF?”
