Awe, Shucks!

Posted by admin on May 22, 2017 in Life Lessons

When I was a kid my father took me to the airshow at the Renton airport. It was during the halcyon days of Boeing when the 727 and 737 were new and nearly ever plane that flew in the skies was made in Renton. I know. Scary thought. Even though I had not flown in […]

It’s probably no secret that as of this writing, my job is in limbo. Every two years, the legislature meets and like the election of the pope, everyone anxiously awaits for the smoke to rise from the chimney to see that we have a new state budget. In this particular budget, my department is singled […]


The Blame Game.

Posted by admin on February 6, 2017 in Life Lessons

The world seems to be filled with blame these days. I regularly hear the chorus of “oh, whoa is me, life is so unfair” out there. I guess that’s because it’s the easiest thing to do; blame others for all your problems in life. There are those white folks who blame the Hispanics or the […]


75 Septembers.

Posted by admin on November 14, 2016 in Life Lessons

I used to waste a lot of time. I mean, really waste it. After all, back when I was in my 20s, I had a lot of time to kill. Time seemed infinite back then, so I would mire myself in wishes without making them so, drama that had no possible resolution, inexcusable errors of […]


I Sure Hope So.

Posted by admin on September 19, 2016 in Life Lessons

I used to be one of the most pessimistic people on this planet. When I was in my twenties and thirties, I could have won the Lottery and still found something to bitch about. I could find something wrong about everything. As I look back at this part of my life, I like to see […]


The Good Old Days?

Posted by admin on August 29, 2016 in Life Lessons

I used to love the band Chicago. Yes, I was in my teens in the 70’s and in concert band to boot. So it was natural that I would love a band that had a great horn section. They also had a string of hits that seemed to speak to me back then. I was […]


Friend or Faux?

Posted by admin on August 22, 2016 in Family, Life Lessons

As most of you know, I am family challenged. Thirty-five years ago, my brothers ended their relationship with me, all because I had my hand in someone else’s cookie jar, a hand in jar that would lead me to divorce while I was still something of a child. Years later, I discovered I had a […]


True North.

Posted by admin on August 15, 2016 in Life Lessons

I’ve been sailing along now in life for almost six decades. There have been many times I’ve been without a compass, certainly a moral compass. I’ve been shipwrecked, sidetracked, hornswoggled and downright lost at times. I’ve let others tell me where north is, well, at least the north they wanted me to sail toward and […]


Even The Trees Do It.

Posted by admin on April 25, 2016 in Culture, Life Lessons

I live a pretty fabulous life. We all do, really. We get to wake up every morning (God willing) and roam about this fabulous little blue ball in the cosmos. Best of all, unlike a lot of things on this planet, even other living things, we actually know we are alive. All in all, it’s […]


All Growd Up.

Posted by admin on April 11, 2016 in Children, Life Lessons

The last of my children is about to become a man. Well, kinda sorta. While he will be turning 18 in May, as all us old farts know that doesn’t make you a man or an adult. It’s simply another baby step into adulthood, steps we keep taking the rest of our lives. In my […]
