A Parking Ticket

February 26, 2020

My wife and I went into town and visited a shop.  When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.  We went up to him and I said, “Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”  He just ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him […]

A Warning

February 24, 2020

A  Warning or a Writer’s Opinion An extract from “The Stand” by Stephen King. The beauty of religious mania is that is has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance … or change. Once such […]

They Worked 111 days of the last 365

September 28, 2019

Found in eMail: So many members of Congress are retiring in hopes of “locking-in” their future retirement payments. Currently, their monthly retirement checks are equal to their monthly salaries.

The Magic of Communication

January 14, 2019

I get an idea about something to say. My mind translates that idea into words and I think about how or whether I am going to share this idea with anyone else. Usually, I start to formulate how I am going to express my idea to another and, if and when the right chance arises, […]

Jesus’ Younger Brother

November 14, 2018

What if Jesus had a younger brother? Would Jesus have had to baby sit him when Peter, or was it Joseph, and Mary went out to shop or for dinner? What kind of role model might Jesus have been and how would he influence this younger brother? Some one asked me, today, if I would […]

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 […]

Now Is Forever

Every second of our lives is a moment in “The Now”. How can it be otherwise? What is past is passed and we can only remember and HOPE that we Learn from our past. What is Yet To Come holds promise and, perhaps, fear but we spend each Now preparing for what is Yet To […]
