Hunger

I don’t eat nearly as much as I used to anymore. I’m just not as hungry as I used to be. Oh, every so often I will overindulge with a potent indica strain and then I will put on the feedbag. And I am always amazed at how delicious everything tastes, and how cool theContinue reading “Hunger”

Stubbornness

This is one of my worst faults. I know, I know, how can it be that I have ANY faults, but I am serious about this one thing. If I think I am right about something, good luck getting me to change my mind. I will go to time immemorial before I acquiesce. Karen usedContinue reading “Stubbornness”

Reason

I admire people who use reason as their first instinct before deciding on a course of action. I admire them because I am usually the opposite in my reactions and following actions. It is a major flaw of mine (I know I just shocked those of you who see me as the perfect male, butContinue reading “Reason”

Ice

Where would we be if there was no such thing as ice? Warm beer. (But if you know anything at all about beer, that is a good thing). But no cold lager. Them’s fighting words. Ice storms would just be storms and those old ice skates in your closet would never have been made inContinue reading “Ice”

Thanks But No Thanks

Before I became the Sexiest Amputee on Earth, I roamed the countryside with reckless abandon and two legs that very much resembled a Michelangelo statue. My parents raised me right and I have always respected any handicapped person with no sense of sympathy.  I was raised to help people in need. People that legitimately neededContinue reading “Thanks But No Thanks”

I Was Scammed

Who done me wrong? That fat Gregory the Groundhog or Chucky the Woodchuck as Karen calls it, is nowhere to be seen. After reporting his existence on the weekend, his presence and the danger he represented to my two Cocker Spaniels prompted me to call a Wildlife Rescue organization to remove and relocate the pudgyContinue reading “I Was Scammed”

Fog

I forgot how much I missed it . So many years have passed since I remember foggy days and nights, but when I woke up this morning, I could not see across the street to my neighbors’ houses. Of course in England we had the proverbial “thick as pea soup” fog that severely limited carContinue reading “Fog”

Bigger Than I Ever Knew

I am on record as saying my big brother Ed is one of my biggest heroes and I always wondered what it would be like to bear the responsibility of having a younger sibling. I had a chance to find out when I was in my late thirties. I was living in Norman, Oklahoma andContinue reading “Bigger Than I Ever Knew”

Meat Eater

I am a carnivore and I have already eaten way more meat than I ever should have eaten, but I make no excuses. My father and Grandfather were both butchers and worked in slaughterhouses. I remember being horrified at the sight of the cows being led up the chutes and the man shooting them inContinue reading “Meat Eater”

Somebody Please Explain it to Me

Why is it? We are still in the unpacking stage and will be for some time, but I open up two boxes that I specifically took the time and effort to write on in BIG letters: TRASH—KAREN DO NOT PACK!!! Please note that there were three exclamation points written in bold on both boxes (onContinue reading “Somebody Please Explain it to Me”
