A life full of failures

Quiet time is dangerous for me. It leads to introspection. Introspection and I spend too much time together already. Because, this often leads to retrospective thinking. And that means reviewing a life full of failures. Generally, I’ve grown, if not comfortable, then at least accepting of who I am. Too much analysis is a tiresome… Read more »

Annoying things come in small packages

Yes, I know that is not the familiar expression. With all due respect to “good things”, I think I can show you a reason to add an altered version into the lexicon. I am sure, after reading this post, you will agree that annoying things come in small packages. First, let me compliment small things…. Read more »

KLUTZMAN!

Slower than a falling dish! Less powerful than a double oven! Unable to leap over short tree roots! Is it a rubber chicken? Is it a weather balloon? No…it’s KLUTZMAN! Genetically endowed with the rare klutz gene, gifted to him by his more talented klutzy Dad, KLUTZMAN is an identity I have grown into. It… Read more »

Thinking about thinking

Okay, two political posts is my limit for the week. Any more than that and I’ll be changing the name of the blog from “Ramblings” to “Grumblings”. I think it’s time for a change. Of course, that’s actually the problem. Thinking. Or, more accurately, thinking about thinking. Here’s the deal. Basically, I think I think… Read more »

I should have been a bug

We get along well. Ants, dragonflies, even spiders. Mosquitoes positively adore me. And now, it seems I have a… Read more »

This is why it costs less to have no ambition…

In the spirit of good faith, I provide you with this related post. Now, read on… My retirement is so much more secure when I am without ambitions. As you all know (and if you don’t,… Read more »

And sometimes it just comes to me. For example, in the last two days, I received two new reviews of my first book, “What if?”. In one, the reviewer takes me to task for unbelievable dialogue while the other lauds me for its correctness. One was disappointed and the other pleased (yet the ratings only… Read more »

Lace me up

Time for another in my series of blogs about evil clothing items. Okay, maybe not really a series. I guess two blogs is not enough to call a series. So, let’s just call it the follow-on to my previous diatribe on annoying clothing items. Today’s outrage is over shoelaces. Specifically, shoelaces that are too long…. Read more »

Miss Communication

Yeah, I know what you’ve been thinking.  Every day it’s the same thing.  Over and over about his road trip.  Doesn’t he have anything else to post about? Well, bunky, not for the next two months (and change).  But fear not, for lest you old-timers forget or newcomers be unaware, there’s a whole bunch of… Read more »
