The power of MJ

Today I thought I would do another sports cards blog to further examine how crazy this world of ours really is. Today I want to talk about a time that little 12-year-old me made a poor decision with his allowance. In 1987, and I remember this well, I was standing in a Woolworth’s Department storeContinue reading “The power of MJ”

No one ever dreamed?

Today I would like to write about the stampede in Israel on Thursday night, and how it boggles my mind. At least 45 people were trampled to death at this religious ceremony. 45 people trampled to death. First of all, how do you have SO MANY people at an event that it is possible forContinue reading “No one ever dreamed?”

Yard Sale!

The Southerner in me just loves yard sales, and I didn’t get to have one last year, so now that things are getting better, I’m going to have a yard sale tomorrow! My lovely wife is making me be careful, though. Even though it’s an outdoor “affair”, I’m going to set up a table withContinue reading “Yard Sale!”

100 blogs!

Today I’m doing my 100th blog! I believe I started back in August, so I’m chugging along at a pretty good pace. I know I have a lot of work to do, however. I haven’t done much with my site except for the blogs and a couple of pictures. I keep putting off more work,Continue reading “100 blogs!”

The F-bomb sermon

Most times I try not to swear. There are better ways of expressing your feelings and swearing just adds to your angry mood. I try to reserve my swears for times where I hit my thumb with a hammer or someone swerves into my lane when I’m driving or something similar like that. I tryContinue reading “The F-bomb sermon”

Hidden Treasure

When I was a kid, one of the local radio stations in my hometown had a contest with a prize of $1000 (I think – I was a kid and have slept a few times since then, so some of the details of my story might be inaccurate). I think the contest was to findContinue reading “Hidden Treasure”

Return of the Covid Cutie

As I have talked about from time to time, my wife runs a home daycare, and unfortunately, part of the job is having to let little ones grow up and leave the daycare. They can’t stay four forever. But last year we lost one of our favorites due to Covid-19. Her parents wanted to beContinue reading “Return of the Covid Cutie”

Media mania

Let me start out by saying that I believe most of what the mainstream media reports is true and accurate. Of course there are mistakes from time to time, but if you see a story in lots of different places from lots of different outlets, it’s probably as true as it can be at theContinue reading “Media mania”

A walk in the woods

The other day I went for a walk in the woods on a mountain, and I still have sort of a peaceful frame of mind from it. The mountain was Monte Sano in Huntsville, Alabama, and I guess it’s barely a mountain as mountains go, but I was able to walk there and be completelyContinue reading “A walk in the woods”
