Well, what should we talk about?

Well, what should we talk about?

Many Americans, myself included, will receive some sort of stimulus check from the taxpayers of these here United States. It has to do with the president’s $1.9 trillion COVID bill. Individuals will get something shy of $2,000. As I type, my $1,400 payoff is noted on my account balance as, “Pending.” And, while I am […]

Welcome to March 2021!

Welcome to March 2021!

I was looking back at old editions of the paper, in particular back to March 2020. Holy Crap, it has been almost exactly one year since we started reporting on this “new” virus sweeping the globe. And, as the year moved on, the news across the country kept on getting uglier and uglier. Lockdown, virtual […]

Apologizing for everything.

Apologizing for everything.

It’s time to come clean. Spill the beans. Make amends. Apologize. I admit it. In this crazy — no, lunatic — times we live in, I have come to the conclusion the only chance I have not to be “cancelled” by the “progressive” people out there is to get a hold of and control my […]

Restaurant Relief Program and more.

Restaurant Relief Program and more.

So, this week the high and mighty in Lansing have deemed it permissible to open up indoor, eat-out dining. Michigan restaurants were thrown a bone — a little life saver and allowed to open at a 25 percent capacity and to stay open only to 10 p.m. Which kind of reminds me of a comedy […]

All’s quiet on the Michigan front (or is it?)

All’s quiet on the Michigan front (or is it?)

  I learn’t — and don’t use that word in school, kids because teachers frown upon its use — there were only three school districts in Oakland County who continuously maintained an in-person option for students since the school year began. Wanna’ know which districts? Clawson, Brandon and Oxford. I’m kind of surprised by this […]

Dear 2021 (and more for the New Year)

Dear 2021 (and more for the New Year)

Dec. 31, 2020 Dear 2021, I am excited about your arrival — now only a few hours away. I look forward to making your acquaintance! If I am to be honest with you, your predecessor really kinda sucked. The Year 2020 was one I was ready to usher out. Since I have yet to meet […]

Fungat is as fungat does.

Fungat is as fungat does.

The weekend before this past weekend’s wind storms, I spent a lot of time outside. Wasn’t hunting. Wasn’t hiking or enjoying the crisp, clean autumn air. Nah, nothing so adventurous or sublime. Just had to finish taking care of the leaves on and around Casa D’Rush. Yeah, there was some raking, some sucking, some blowing […]

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

Hey, it’s November and whenever November rolls on in, I usually need to figuratively slap myself in the face; get my head out the muck and grime of everyday living and taste the proverbial coffee and smell the roses. November is a good time to remember it ain’t all bad. And, things could be a […]

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020-1102: There. Is. Only one. Day left. The question we have asked ourselves is, “Can we survive Election 2020?” * * * I send this exciting chapter of Don’t Rush Me into the hallowed halls of Don’t Rushmedon on Monday, November 2. Mothership Earth is still spinning in the cosmos. Asteroids are […]

Stupid coronavirus.

Stupid coronavirus.

Yup. It’s true. I sometimes get lost. It’s not that I don’t have a decent sense of direction, it’s just sometimes I enjoy the journey and forget to pay attention. It’s the same thing nowadays as it was when I was just a wee, little man. Back in the days before there was a Heather […]
