The Clearance Sale.

Posted by admin on December 5, 2016 in Defies Description |

Well, it’s almost the end of the year and in the spirit of the holiday season, I’ve decided to give away a lot of topics that really didn’t warrant a thousand words. Now, It’s not that a thousand words are somehow magical. It’s not like the heavens will suddenly open up and swallow me whole […]

Let me start by saying I am a dog lover. I have been all my life. I have owned five wonderful dogs in this lifetime, or should I say, they owned me. Barney was such a great companion that he saw me through the tragic death of my brother. The other saw me through that […]

On Top Of Old Fogey.

My birthday is once again on the horizon. This one will be a milestone of sorts. First, I will have outlived my father by a year as the Grim Reaper didn’t bother to stop by to say an eternal hello. Second, it will be my birth year. If you know what year I was born, […]

You Can Count On It.

Posted by admin on February 1, 2016 in Defies Description |

I’ve been bothered as of late. It seems that the next generations coming through the pipeline don’t seem to understand the concept of accountability. I can safely say my generation learned the lesson well. It was often pounded into our thick skulls by our parents when we were late from a date or were somewhere […]

Giving Up.

This week’s collective tragedies seems to have put us against the ropes. We are like Mohammed Ali on an off night. We’re up against the ropes, both arms blocking the punches to our face, hoping like hell we don’t fall to the mat and stay out for the count. That’s not the world I grew […]

Riding The Stage Coach.

I can be hypercritical of many writer’s work. I guess that’s what happens when you write for a living. You put your work out there for others to critique, and you critique the work of others in return. I recently read Mark Manson’s Four Stages of Life and I must say it was terrific. It crystalized […]

All The Pretty Horses.

Posted by admin on September 14, 2015 in Defies Description |

It’s pretty well established that I don’t like things that go up and down or round and round. Rollercoasters: tried them, don’t like them. Too much like life. That said, I can be talked into going on one occasionally, but I won’t go on any high-tech coaster. Life is filled with enough adrenaline; I don’t […]

The Night Was Balmy And So Was I…

Brewster McCabe and I have been good pals for the last 30 years. It’s been something of a love/hate relationship, as we haven’t always been on the best of terms. That happens when you’ve lived with someone for so long. While you relish the core of the relationship and look forward to seeing each other […]

That Was A Big Mis-Steak!

Posted by admin on March 9, 2015 in Defies Description |

A friend of a friend went to the hospital the other day. I really can’t recall what it was about, something to do with a herniated ulcer and a bleeding something or other. Though I wasn’t tuned into the why and wherefores of his plight, it did bring back memories of my own brief encounters […]

Wallet Wonders.

Posted by admin on December 22, 2014 in Defies Description |

I have been a very lucky guy. Fingers crossed, I have only lost my wallet once. Well, misplaced it really, on a street, but we’ll get to that in a minute. I have always loved the George Carlin bit about a stuff where he says a guy’s wallet is the only thing he really needs […]
