The rearview mirror.

I am turning 65 soon. If I were a car I’d be in a museum. Or the junkyard. I’ve never been one to care much about the vehicles that carry me around in this world. I don’t think I’ve washed my car in over 10 years. I’ve done much better with the one some would […]

The unfriendly skies.

I used to enjoy flying. I took my first big trip in 1984. It was to the Cayman Islands. I was just 24. It was the first time I had ever been on a commercial jetliner. Since then, I have rarely lost my love of flying. Even in the middle of a hellacious thunderstorm on […]

A Real “Dating” Problem.

Being a pirate isn’t easy, at least if you want to have what some people call a normal relationship. I have written here and there about my many misadventures in pursuit of love, including a book that chronicled all my exploits in often embarrassing detail. But now that I am in a happy, fulfilling relationship […]

Where the hell have you been?

That’s a question I often ask myself, now that the calendar has changed over from a virtual hell to one of promise and hope. I was going to originally add peace but we all know how the previous week has played out. My last RobZerrvation was just shy of one year ago, when I was […]

Just Sign On The Bottom Line.

Kat and I have been retirement home shopping lately. The big day is several years still on the horizon, but we decided to get an early start so we could actually plan something in our lives for a change. This led us to check out the new Latitudes Margaritaville in Daytona Beach, Florida a few […]

The Secrets of the Fire Swamp.

I just returned from Florida. You know, that place I lived almost a decade ago that I often referred to as Hell. Well, I’ve discovered a few things on this last trip. First, Florida wasn’t really Hell. The relationship I was in was Hell. I got the two confused and blamed Florida for all the […]

Going The Distance.

When I was a wee boy and a beardless youth, I fell madly in love with a girl just down the street. Well, she would have been just down the street if her parents – who were besties with my parents – hadn’t moved to Hermiston, Oregon. I would have probably never fallen so hard […]

Quicher Bitchin’.

I’ve been thinking about choices a lot lately. I’ve made some great choices in my lifetime and some famously disastrous ones. I suppose we all have. The wonderful thing about choices is that in many cases, they can be improved upon or changed by the choices we make down the road. Our lives are never […]

What A Coincidence?

I went to the Alan Doyle concert Friday nigh. If you don’t know who Alan is, well, how about lead singer of Great Big Sea? Newfie music? Kitchen party? O.K., so he may not be well known. But he does draw a rabid following of fans who love his songs of the sea and stories […]

I Just Don’t Believe It.

Posted by admin on February 20, 2018 in Defies Description |

There seems to be a lot of deniers out there these days. They seem to deny everything too, from the earth being round and man landing on the moon to the Holocaust. Most recently, I came upon some denier threads that maintained that the launch of Elon Musk’s Tesla into orbit was faked. “It was […]
