I’ve Been Missing Out

I wonder how long THIS has been going on? I could have been SO much more comfortable. Had I only known. I guess I need to pay closer attention. And I will in the future. Times are tuff. But I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. Record unemployment. Foreclosures. Homeless folks. […]

Bunny Ranchin’

WOW!! I was surprised to learn I am a farmer. I have to do a little research to see if there are some type of tax advantages available to me now. And it’s funny… because I found out completely by accident. I’m kind of worried at the moment. I have to learn what kind of […]

The Games are Upon Us

Has it already been four years? It seems like just… well… maybe like three years. But they are back again. The Olympics. From Vancouver. I think that’s up in Canada. Eh? The Olympics remind me of family. The visit is great for the first couple of days. Then it starts to go down hill. It’s […]


We have several contraptions around the house. Most, at some point in their lives, were used for their intended purpose. I’m almost sure of that. I can’t say that for the majority of them now. I think I collect some of them to truly use them as they were intended… and then I find a […]

But I Have an Appointment

It’s 10:00am, the first Saturday of the month. So I head to where I always go at 10:00am on the first Saturday of every month. To get my hair cut. Every month. The first Saturday. At 10:00am. And it’s because I have an appointment. Webster’s defines an appointment as: Main Entry: ap•point•ment Pronunciation: ə-ˈpȯint-mənt Function: […]

Ever the Sportsman

I like to play golf. Or play AT golf, actually. I’m not any good, but I enjoy it. It’s very relaxing to me to hit the little white ball, scream at it as it leaves the tee, and then to hunt for my club after I throw it. Yep… I like golf. I got to […]

Nitnoid Things Bug Me

I went to get some ice water from our SUPER-DELUXE Model. Now, the cup is just great under the water dispenser, but the ICE dispenser is just a smidgen too low for my cup. So I have to tip it at an angle to get the ice in. Why do they do that? I […]

It DON’T Have to be Like This

I like funny stuff. (THAT’S a shocker, huh)? If you fall down and I’m there, I’m gonna laugh at ya. After I make sure you aren’t hurt. Well… that you aren’t hurt TOO bad. Shoestring break? That’s my chuckle you hear. Bonk your head on an OBVIOUS object. I’m gonna laugh at your clumsy butt. […]

I Never Realized

If you’re going to be poor… the BEST time is when you’re a kid because you don’t know. I never realized we were poor when I was growing up. Not until I was an adult and looked back and thought… “Dang… we were poor.” All the stuff I had when I was a kid seemed […]
