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”

You Cannot Be Serious!

To quote back-in-the-day bad boy tennis brat John McEnroe. At a time when many were put off by the entitled whiteboy, I liked him. Yes, he was a crybaby. Yes, he was an asshole. But when his serve and volley game was on, he was money. If I met him in a bar, I wouldContinue reading “You Cannot Be Serious!”

Mourning

Obviously, I did not post a blog to mark the season-opening loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes. It wasn’t the romp everyone expected, but it was starting to look like if the game were just a bit longer, the score would have been more lopsided. My boys were wearing down against the huge linemen ofContinue reading “Mourning”

Another Letter to Robin Meade

As many of you know who follow my crazy blog, I always invite Robin Meade, the perky little Newsbabe from HLN’s Morning News program whenever I play a gig.  Not surprisingly, she missed my show at the Sycamore Springs Nursing home last week despite my invitation. Here goes: Hi Robin: It is me, Maddogg. IContinue reading “Another Letter to Robin Meade”

Cheers

I take shots at pretty much everything here, on my little, tiny piece of the internet. I don’t bullshit, despite possessing one of the world’s greatest stockpiles of it. I don’t give a shit about politics; I usually let the Domestic Despot send in our ballots, that is how interested I am. Besides, let’s faceContinue reading “Cheers”

Mr. Big (mouth)

I left a lucrative career in the food service industry for the opportunity to start up my own company, in this adventure, a contracting/construction business in northwest Ohio. I mean I started this company from the ground up. Not far removed from my pool shark days of Las Vegas, I went to a local tavernContinue reading “Mr. Big (mouth)”

Enough

Here are some pictures displaying my optimism for the opening match for my Manchester United Reds. You will see a considerable “before and after” effect. I don’t like the new manager (Erik (“cue ball, side pocket”) Ten Hag. I think he is arrogant and reminds me of past United managers that just didn’t fit withContinue reading “Enough”

Wow!

It’s not every day, or often enough, for that matter, that you see or hear something and it makes you say “wow!” out loud. In researching songs to add to my playlist, I came upon a video on YouTube posted in 2103. It featured Stevie Ray Vaughn (the King of West Texas blues) and JeffContinue reading “Wow!”

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”

Rent

For a myriad of reasons I only ever had to pay rent for a few months out of my life. Even when I had a bachelor pad, I rarely spent any time there. I hear of people struggling to pay off someone else’s mortgage every month. I am not saying I don’t feel sorry forContinue reading “Rent”
