Reading is hard

So, I spent most of yesterday in the hospital. Dad was experiencing heart pains and my Stepmom made him go to the hospital. Stubborn as he is, he demanded to drive himself. More on that later. Bottom line, though, what later ensued proves that reading is hard. As is often the case with my Dad,… Read more »

Did you love your parents?

I don’t want to post this. I keep waiting for a storm of conscientious and brave Republicans to make things right. They haven’t. No one is changing the mind of the person in the oval office. No one but you, that is. And that’s why I’m asking, Did you love your parents? This isn’t aimed… Read more »

The jig is up

Welp, I threatened it a couple of months ago. And now I finally pulled that trigger. Does it represent a danger to a person with my obsessive traits? Sure. But, I think it’s a mild obsession to have. In any case, when it comes to resisting this obsession, the jig is up. So, when I… Read more »

Just the one Dad is enough

Yup, it’s Father’s Day weekend. I haven’t done a Father’s Day post in a while, so it’s high time. This year, like every one I’ve been on this earth, I am blessed to have my Dad with me. And, as I’ve often recounted and will do so again, just the one Dad is enough. Regular… Read more »

It’s scary how fast time flies

The big birthday BBQ is in the rear view mirror and so, thoughts naturally turn to…Halloween. Well, natural for me, at least. Sure, you say, it’s barely mid-June. But, in truth, preparation for Halloween can never start too early. You see, it’s scary how fast time flies. When I “upped my game” last year for… Read more »

Credit due or credit risk?

And, regardless if it is years or ages that pass, that final judgment may all hinge on whether this past week is credit due or credit risk. It’s not… Read more »

Better the second time around

My elder nieceling came over for a brief visit before we popped over to the parentals for lunch together. These mini-visits are usually rambling talks about life and the future. Sometimes work, other times relationships and still others about school. Here we found ourselves and what led me to tell her that it is sometimes… Read more »

Lying and crying

So, where were we? Well, let’s not dilly dally. I’m ready to jump right in to another (ugh) political post. This one will be a little different, as I discuss what appears to be Trump’s overarching “strategy”. Near as I can tell, it basically amounts to lying and crying. Yes, yes, I seem to be… Read more »

Pardon my indecision

During the week leading up to my big Birthday BBQ, a lot was happening in the world and here. And the following week, I was too bushed to post much. Plus, I have another problem. Too many things worthy of commentary have happened. Because I’m not sure where to begin, I ask you to pardon… Read more »
