Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind


My Anniversay Post

A married man left from work early one Friday afternoon. Instead of going home, however, he squandered the weekend (and his salary) partying with the boys. When he finally returned home on Sunday night, he ran into a barrage of abuse from his wife. After a couple of hours of nagging and berating, his wife […]

Grandma Is Stingy

Jealousy has been around forever. In Genesis 4:8, Cain killed his brother, Abel, out of jealousy. So this isn’t a new emotion that has just become popular. And many times, it is partnered with another long-time emotion: greed. It seems they frequently go hand-in-hand. For example: Theresa and Rose are two sisters from Connecticut. They’ve […]

I GOTTA Know

I enjoy putting thought to paper. There are several reasons, one of which is to give you just a glimpse of what goes on inside my head. I try not to open that door TOO much so I don’t completely freak you out. It’s fun scowering sites for interesting subjects and putting my spin on […]

How Much is TOO Much?

Trace Adkins (the country singer) had a popular song a while back that said there were certain things you couldn’t have too much of… you can’t have too much money… you can’t have a girl that’s too pretty… you can’t be too lucky… you can’t have too much fun… you get the idea. But after […]

I’m Not a Good Traveler

I’ve mentioned a time or two that I don’t like to fly. I spent 28 years wearing an Air Force uniform… and I HATE to fly. If I’m going to go someplace, I prefer to drive. But that isn’t always possible. Now in my defense, I do better on a large plane versus a small […]

It’s SO Good, They’re Breaking Back… IN?

Bread and water. Chain gangs. Small, cramped cells with no privacy. Boredom. Tight metal bracelets. Very fashionable, brightly colored clothing. What do you think of when you think about jail or prison? As hard as this is to believe… and with my right hand raised… I have never been incarcerated. Or even had to be […]

There Is a Place for All of Us

There I was… scanning the online the news sites. Boring… boring… boring… boring… BINGO!! Sometimes you have to scan a lot before one jumps out at ya. And sometimes you might scan a day or two with nothing. But this was GOLD. I could work with this one: A Retirement Home for Prostitutes Yeah… THAT […]

Must You Yell??

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!! NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THIS!! IT’S BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD!! HOW HAVE YOU LIVED THIS LONG WITHOUT IT?? YOUR LIFE MUST BE MISERABLE!! AND YES… I DO HAVE TO YELL AT YOU!! Whatever it is… you need two of them. Regardless. You need two sets of these bowls to keep […]

Makes Sense to Me

I love many things. But two of my favorites are idiots and obviousness. How could we survive without them? I love to read the news and see a story where someone has done something so dumb even I go… “Well that’s what you get.” Cause I can be an idiot myself. And I love seeing […]

I’m Not a Critic, But…

20 years ago, on March 18, 1990, a pair of thieves pretending to be police pulled off what’s considered the largest art heist in history, stealing 13 artworks, including paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet, from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. They spent an amazing 81 minutes selecting their items. Their take is […]
