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 […]


Food For Thought.

Posted by admin on April 4, 2016 in Life Lessons

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 […]
