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 […]

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 […]

Ages and Birthdays

May 31, 2019

When I was younger, in my 50’s, I got to thinking about my age and, more importantly, my remaining Birthdays. There were fewer remaining than I had already had. Even though this is a sobering thought, that didn’t mean that I stopped drinking OR living but I still want to do SOMETHING to commemorate my […]

Thank You, Mr. Prager

May 10, 2019

We watched high school principal Dennis Prager of Colorado, along with Sara Palin and Tom Brokaw on TV a couple of weeks ago….what a dynamic, down to earth speaker. A Speech Every American High School Principal Should Give. By Dennis Prager. To the students and faculty of our high school: I am your new principal […]

Are we still Free?

April 25, 2019

Have we become TOO Politically Correct or TOO Corrected Politically? Do the citizens of the United States have the right to choose their own destiny OR have we become Victims of our fear of confrontation? I remember a time when the United States was a proud nation with family origins from almost everywhere in the […]

The Fast Lane: An Enigma

March 10, 2019

Many people who drive have a preference for one of the lanes on a highway over the others. My experience has shown me that most of the folks who are driving in the slow lane are planning to get off the highway at one of the exits that are coming up pretty soon.  Although, some […]

Sixty is the New Twenty

March 5, 2019

For my Sixtieth Birthday (I am a little older now), Kevin gave me a CD that he burned himself with music that I liked when I first heard it and play it still. Check out some of these songs and lyrics and see if you like them also: Mr. Blue Sky – Electric Light Orchestra […]
