Regrets

March 13, 2020

“Regrets, I’ve had a fewbut then, again, too few to mention” How many times and from how many people have you heard these regrets: I wish I hadn’t worked so much I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends I wish I had […]

Drafting Guys Over 60

June 7, 2019

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists.  You can’t be older than 42 to join the military.  They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year old’s off to fight, they ought to take us old guys.  You shouldn’t be able to join a military […]

Life is an Asymptote

September 10, 2018

In Math, an asymptotic relationship or formula is defined as: a line that continuously approaches a given curve but does not meet it at any finite distance It’s sort of like a football penalty for half the distance to the goal: you get closer but you never get there. In my experience, Life is like […]

June 18, 2017

Do you know what an Inside Joke is? It’s a joke that only works inside my head!  That’s an Inside Joke. And by the way, that, in itself, is an Inside Joke!   However, since you are here, why don’t you check out some of my other blogs: IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering: https://softwareengineeringhandbook.wordpress.com/ […]

A Letter to the American People

March 15, 2016

DEAR AIRLINES: Dump the male flight attendants. No one wanted them in the first place. Replace all the female flight attendants with young, good-looking strippers! They don’t even serve food anymore, so what’s the loss? The strippers would at least triple the alcohol sales and get a “party atmosphere” going in the cabin. And, of […]

Just a little FYI, interesting how things have changed in our life time!! We will never see this again. Thought you’d enjoy this! It’s one you want your Children and Grandchildren to read. They won’t believe this happened, but it DID. Harry & Bess (This seems unreal.) Harry Truman was a different kind of President. He […]

From eMail: Hiskid1: Grey Haired Terrorists

July 20, 2015

Yesterday, I wore my Vietnam Veterans cap when I went to Wal-Mart. There was nothing in particular that I needed at the world’s largest retailer; but, since I retired, trips to Wally World to look at the “Walmartians” is always good for some comic release. Besides I always feel pretty normal after seeing some of […]
