[05-01] Lock N Load I swear this country is turning into suspicious, mean spirited, gas bags.  The really sad part is the majority of them are on radio and in a public venue.  We need to search them out and eradicate each and every one of them.  They are a scourge upon the land.  Yeah I know, “free speech […]

[05-03] Grumpy Greeters I want to be a “mellow dude” I really do. I want to walk in the sunshine, to be of no great hurry on my journey through life, to stop and smell the flowers, to pause at the curb and purchase what it is that little kids are selling, even if it tastes bad, to […]

[05-05] Cinco De Whatever More rain! Whole  bunch of hoopla concerning “Cinco De Mayo” this week.  Having never personally taking five years of Spanish between high school and college, I am not acutely aware of what this Mexican Holiday represents.  I think it celebrates some kind of Mexican war victory in some south of the border skirmish, but I am […]

[05-06] Pocket Change Been raining a lot here, yesterday was the 10th day in a row, so I have been spending a great deal of time watching television.  There is a commercial currently running that I just cannot seem to grasp.  It is a Hallmark Card commercial, I like Hallmark Cards, and they seem to stir something deep […]

[05-07] Rainy Day Blues Lot of rain this week, one location received a copious biblical amount of moisture, seven inches of it in six hours, do the math, that is one soggy bottom.  Rainy days have a profound tendency to pull me down and I yearn for sunshine.  With the rain comes lightning and thunder, no internet as the […]

[05-18] Back in The Saddle There is something about traveling that appeals to me, the mere fact that you can get out of town for a little respite, is also a mark on the plus side of the scale.  Something about listening to the music that you want to hear on the CD player in the car, the vision of […]

[05-19] Higher Education In the spirit of doing what I say and not what I do, one leader of the Mexican drug cartels called “The Family” has insisted that when gang members are not selling cocaine and murdering their rivals, that they attend gang-run classes in ethics, values, and personal improvement and also abstain from drugs and alcohol. Now […]

[05-19] Inviolable Reasoning Some days are going to be good days and then some days are painful and not all that good.  Like it is when you have that small pimple on the bottom of your nostril, and you know you have to squeeze it, and at the same time, you absolutely KNOW that it is going to […]

[05-20] Call It What It Is Ventured out yesterday for some stamps at the Post Office, did not see anyone wearing a mask over their face, so I assume the swine flu pandemic scare is officially over. Which is a good thing, especially for me, because I love BLT’s (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) sandwiches.  I would absolutely hate to see anything […]

[05-22]  We Did It Anyway THIS IS THE EMAIL OF THE WEEK, I RECEIVED IT FROM ALABAMA OF ALL PLACES. A new state law passed today in Oklahoma, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front  entrance to the state capitol.  The feds in D.C., along […]

[05-25] Memorial DayI suppose a lot of folks look at this day from a perspective of a day off from work.  Maybe a barbecue or cookout in the backyard with friends and neighbors. Big NASCAR race on today, along with the running of the Indy 500, both now American Traditions. Being a vet and all, this day carries […]

[05-26]  Graduation Time Rain on the driveway this morning,  cool and soothing, nice to have it for a change of pace.  It stirs my soul ….  As the rain beats down upon my window pane, as Mother Nature disturbs the peace of mind I have found, as the wind and rain beat so violently upon my window pane, I think of you my love, drip, drip, drip […]

[05-27]  Red Hill Kathy is fifteen or sixteen, a junior in high school, she often works in her mama’s restaurant as a waitress, and I assume this is where she picks up her spending money.  We have talked numerous times about a lot of things, contact lenses, school, college; boys that are stupid, what movie have you seen. One […]
