TO BEARD OR NOT TO BEARD

Posted on February 28, 2019

I remember being a bit confused. “You wouldn’t go outside after taking a dump without wiping your ass, would ya?” Oh, the poetic musings of my late, great, crazy Uncle.  God rest his soul. He was answering the question from his nine-year old nephew.  He had been staying with us for a while after getting […]


COACH FRANK…AND THE NERVOUS KID

Posted on February 27, 2019

It was the bottom of the 7th.  Playoffs. Winner advances to the championship game. And since we only played 7 innings in 13-14 pony league, the tension was high.  The starting pitcher, our best ace, claimed a sore arm and had just (uncharacteristically) given up three runs and we were now only one run ahead […]


A LETTER TO TIM

Posted on February 26, 2019

Dear, Tim… Sadly, this letter to you is written posthumously, as you left this mortal plane ten days ago.  I never met you or knew of you during your 34 years on this earth. The first time you came into my consciousness was the day after you were murdered.  I had just paid for my […]


MORE FREDDIE MERCURY…AND LESS CONTRIVANCE!

Posted on February 25, 2019

The greatest front man ever? That’s not an unreasonable argument in my opinion.  To describe Freddie Mercury would require more adjectives than I’m willing to search for on my phone’s thesaurus.  But if I had to pick a single word that best encapsulated him, it would be “showman”. He combined the characteristics of all the […]


HALO OR HAMMER?

Posted on February 22, 2019

What to buy your son for his birthday? After ninety posts and tons of feedback, I think I have a pretty good grasp of who my core audience is. And it would be a safe bet to assume that a descent percentage of you cats know your way around a tool box.  After all, the […]


BOW DOWN TO OUR GREEN GOD…OR ELSE!

Posted on February 21, 2019

I’m all for being spiritual.  Having a personal relationship with my God is important to me.  Saying a few prayers now and again. Trying to live a relatively clean life that ensures my eternity will be spent with the harp playing dudes and not ones who poke and prod with pitchforks. And, conversely, I’m also […]


LIKE, BTW…WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR ONCE GR8 LANGUAGE?

Posted on February 20, 2019

Any American man worth his salt has some understanding of our country’s history. Of all the past eras in our rear-view mirror, none (at least in my opinion) incite intrigue like the years we were at war-with each other!  The Civil War era was a very dark and unprecedented time in our history. It was […]


LITTLE SALLY’S GONNA KICK YOUR ASS!

Posted on February 19, 2019

At least that’s what popular culture in 2019 wants you to believe. Okay, let me get this fact out of the way.  There’re some real tough girls out there. Girls that are physically strong, have high pain thresholds, are skilled fighters and are just plain, old bad-asses. YouTube has substantiated that. However, these tough girls? […]
