Food For Thought.

I have lots of opinions. I know. Big surprise! Many of them are shared right here, in RobZerrvations. Others are far more personal, and yet, far more plentiful. It’s about ordinary, day-to-day stuff mostly, about raising children, updating the house, surviving our workaday world. As I said, pretty mundane stuff and not much to write […]

A Discriminating Taste.

Posted by admin on March 7, 2016 in Life Lessons

The alarming rise of open hatred in this country, especially hatred wrapped in a red, white and blue bunting, is something we should all question. Yes, there’s a large part of America that wants to be all white. They are even afraid of their own shadows because they seem unsettling dark. They want to vilify […]

Home Sweet, Um…

Posted by admin on February 29, 2016 in Life Lessons

I am no longer stuck between a rock and a hard place. The rental is just a fond memory as a bunch of exchange students move into it, and most of the boxes in our new home have been emptied and added to the mountainous recycling pile in the garage. It’s funny how the big […]

Pop Nonsense.

Posted by admin on February 22, 2016 in Life Lessons

As a writer, I try to stay dialed into pop culture. It keeps the writing relevant, being able to reference a popular song or a hit movie when the task requires it. This has never been a difficult undertaking for me, at least historically. But more and more, I seem to be more and more […]

A Fixer Upper.

Posted by admin on February 15, 2016 in Life Lessons

Things apparently went well this week. Kat and I are homeowners. Well, that’s what people like to call it. In truth, we will join the millions of Americans who willingly go in debt to own a piece of dirt topped off with some sticks. It’s been that way since the beginning, I guess. I’m sure […]

The Fickle Finger of Friends.

Posted by admin on January 25, 2016 in Life Lessons

When I was young, I didn’t have many friends. In elementary school, it was Bob Core and Mike Culver. In middle school, pretty much Bob Core and Bob Cochran. In high school, Tim Davidson, Scott McComas and Wally Hazen on the male side; Jeany Hahn, Michelle Ritchie, Cheryl Haglund and Chris Koura on the female […]

Torn Between Two Lovers.

Posted by admin on January 11, 2016 in Life Lessons

I have always liked Peter of Peter, Paul and Mary. He’s no Paul, mind you, at least not since I found out he wrote Torn Between Two Lovers, which is an earworm from 1976 that will never, ever leave your head once it enters. You know the chorus: Torn between two lovers, feeling like a […]

Nah-thing To Do.

Posted by admin on January 4, 2016 in Life Lessons

My friend Cassie and I were talking about retirement a few weeks ago. Like a Boy Scout, she is prepared. She has been prudent throughout her life to ensure that she would be able to retire in relative comfort. Me? I tend to piss her off now and again because of my cavalier attitude about […]

Having Faith.

Posted by admin on November 9, 2015 in Life Lessons, Religion

I’ve had it with religion lately. Now, don’t get all religiousy on me. I am a man of faith, often tremendous faith. Without it, I can guarantee that I wouldn’t have my happily ever after right now. I would still be a lost boy, cast adrift, looking for something, anything, to keep me afloat in […]

Hater!

Posted by admin on October 5, 2015 in Life Lessons

There’s a lot of hate in the world today. Though we have worked and worked to become better educated and, in the process, better human beings, we continue to take two giant steps backward for every step forward we seem to take as a society. Case in point. I was watching a small snippet of […]
