Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind


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 […]

Bigger ISN’T Always Better

As you shop, it seems that all the retailers want you to buy more, More, MORE… all at once. More of this… more of that. If you need any, you need more than you think. We have “clubs” devoted to helping us buy in bulk. Sam’s, CostCo… we PAY for the privilege to buy more. […]

Never Bring a Rope to a Deer Fight

Have I mentioned that I do not claim to live in the brightest neck of the woods? Have I mentioned that I just LOVE folks with bright ideas? Have I mentioned I love to share stories of other folk’s misfortune? This would be one of those times. So a friend had this idea to rope […]
