Long, hot summer & playing in the rain.

I think I spent way too much time on-line this past Monday morning trying to find out our relatively local seasonal weather statistics “But why Donald,” you are asking, “when you have lived over half of your life expectancy did you waste your precious time on such a folly? You know, you will never get […]

If you don’t know it’s your own danged fault.

So, last week in these parts we had local elections. Regular Joes and Joettes “flocked” to their local polling stations to take part in, and exercise their rights in this, the American Democratic Experiment (ADE for short). By the way, when I say “flocked” I mean somewhere south of 30 percent of the voting populace […]

Ask me any five questions, I dare you.

I was coddiwompling around the old social media thingamabob this past weekend for just a few minutes, and one of my 642 “friends” (most whom I have never met) shared a post from like seven years ago — wait! — can Facebook really be that old?

Oh Pikachu, say it ain’t so.

Dangblabitall! You know, I was really feeling kinda groovy and thought I had pretty much escaped with my dignity intact. A few years back, oh about the time my boys became teenagers and girls started occupying more of their thoughts than little Japanese monsters with funny names, I figuratively wiped the sweat from my brow, […]

Holy inside the Beltway, Batman!

Yeah, yeah. I know. It’s old news. Political elites violate tons of rules and with nary a slap on their pocket-picking hands for repercussions. Queen of the Damned Hillary Clinton, those pesky, and mean honky Republicans and of course James Comey, Director of the ever-lovin’ Federal Bureau of Investigations. After Comey completed his July 4 […]

Peanut Gallery (that would be you) to the rescue!

So, Monday night I was lulled to sleep by the soundtrack, dialogue and carnage that is that cinematic masterpiece Killer Klowns From Outer Space, and somewhere between evil Klown snickering and screams, just before my brain turned off, I thought, “Rats. I didn’t write that column . . .” * * * Good morning, happy […]
