By reading my archives, I just realized that nine years ago today, boys and girls, I became a homeowner. I knew there had to be a reason why someone kept popping up in the most unusual locations — the person I was first on a mortgage with, that due to time and circumstances (and perhaps […]

I’ve started fleshing out the Myspace site . Not much there, but I’m trying to learn how other things work.
Here’s 24 pages from the book. Please note that these pages may be edited, renumbered, or removed from the final product, now looking like a November publish due to possibly getting the clearance for lyric publication. (PDF File is 3868 K)
Enjoy. It may be the last. Looking at the way my blood pressure got all riled up yesterday after experiencing the need for a punchy clown, I need to step back and re-evaluate if this blog is doing me more good than harm. Next post will be a few more pages from the book.
While I won’t go as far as to say “go stuff it up your bum sideways,” I’ve had to take on a new philosophy on trying to help people when they ask. Listen to me well: I do not take kindly to being called a liar. I don’t do “prima donna” attitudes well. I don’t […]
…her aunt (almost surrogate grandmother) passed away last night. My prayers are with her, Celtic Mama, and the rest of the family.
that they would take a second and proofread what they publish on wanted posters. Sight does not equal site. Of course they would arrest him “on site”. What would they do, take him to another site and arrest him? Wouldn’t that still make him “on site”? Maybe they planned on filling him with helium. (Photo […]
The headline on my Razr Display Read: “NYC Judge Dismisses Gest’s Ass…” Of course, it didn’t have room to finish with “…ault Case”. I’m laughing myself silly visioning Judge Judy standing up, pointing a finger, and saying, “Mr. Gest? Yo ASS is DISMISSED!”
Thanks to Moonglow for forwarding this very important article from MSNBC.
…but when did we, as co-habitants of this planet, just decide to become plain rude and walk all over each other? Blogs are a dime a dozen these days. You can claim your own corner of the blogsphere for free in some places. Most blogs have rules to keep them from being a free-for-all. Mine […]
I blame Moonglow for forwarding this to me. LOL! There was this troupe of dancers that traveled around the country dancing in clubs and theaters. They were called the Steppers. At one club, the Steppers did such a good job of pulling in patrons that the management gave them all the drinks they could drink […]
1. What’s your most favourite holiday? 2. Your least favourite? 3. What holiday is the most over rated? 4. The most under rated? 5. Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or none of the above? 6. Why do March, April, June, and August have no “you get the day off” holidays? 7. Do you have a favourite […]
What an effin day. I’m glad there’s only one of them a week — true, other days may be as painful, but Monday stands on its own.
Lachlan has a post about a real estate contract that IMHO shouldn’t go through. There are people who’ve reneged on contracts for reasons far less valid than this. My only hope is if the buyers insist on going through with the purchase, that the reception they receive the entire time they live there would make […]
Thanks to Moonglow. I was meeting a friend in a hotel bar, and as I went in I noticed two pretty girls looking at me. “Nine,” I heard one whisper as I passed. Feeling pleased with myself, I swaggered over to my buddy and told him a girl had just rated me a nine out […]
If this post doesn’t make much sense, I’ll blame it on the drugs I’ve taken that don’t include aspirin to counteract the effects of the headache I have. We just had one hell of a thunderstorm blow through the area. So bad, in fact, that it woke me from a dead sleep and made my […]
Not just a song by Reba McEntire. ‘Nuff said.
Moonglow, you owe me another soda for this one. When I was married 25 years, I took a look at my wife one day and said, “Honey, 25 years ago, we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to […]
Happy first day of autumn.
Looking back on my life over the past couple of months, I’ve come to realize that there has been more than just an egocentric Interim Pastor that has driven me away from organized religion. It all boils down to the narrow-mindedness of those who march “in the name of God.” I’ve often stated that I […]
KH — Thank you so much for buying me the book. I am well on my way to restoring some of these photos — and I promise not to get a paper cut while using it! NPH — Thank you for believing in me. It’s finally sinking in a little bit. DH — Thank you […]
I have my neurologist appt today. As expected, I got next to ZERO sleep last night. I should have had my laptop in my bedroom so I could at least have worked on the book some. I’ll be glad when it’s over with. It may not provide me much in the way of answers, but […]
A bit of a different type of FloorFiller, but I kinda like it. 🙂
Graphic art doesn’t come second nature to me. So when someone asked that I design an invitation, to be printed on a postcard to celebrate someone’s birthday, I took the time to design, correct, adjust, etc. Then, when I mention it today, I get “Oh, I decided not to do it after all.” Thanks an […]
It bugs me that we have to bring race or religion to play in every day matters. Miss Black America? Black Data Processing Associates? Jewish Defense League? We should be advanced enough, as Americans, to give to what benefits those who need it. God knows, if I started a United Caucasian College Fund, the NAACP […]
