Goose fingers

Is it just me, or are Canadian Geese taking over the planet? We have a couple of small ponds across the street from our neighborhood, and geese are everywhere over there! When you walk by you have to dodge their weird grey and green poop, and you have to make sure you don’t get tooContinue reading “Goose fingers”

Wottle the Throttle

Lately I’ve been trying to focus on slow and steady productivity rather than the explosions of effort that I have sometimes. I’m pretty sure I get more done in the long run when I’m slow and steady, and to add to that I’m pretty sure I get more done when I do it my way…Continue reading “Wottle the Throttle”

I miss my mansion

I miss my mansion. No, I wasn’t once rich and lost it all, and when I say “my” mansion, I didn’t actually own it. When I was fresh out of college I got a job at the University of Alabama in Huntsville as the “Facilities Manager” and one of the amazing perks of that jobContinue reading “I miss my mansion”

Childhood bedroom

I’ve worked 2 days recently clearing the clutter out of my childhood bedroom, and I can now proudly declare that there is room on either side of the bed and at the foot of the bed to actually walk! The room seems ginormous now and my mother is getting excited about possibly using the extraContinue reading “Childhood bedroom”

I’ve never texted!

That’s right. I have never sent a text message. I’ve read a few before when I thought it might be something important, but I’ve never sent one. I’m trying to be the oldest American to have never sent a text. I know a lot of elderly people will have to die off before I canContinue reading “I’ve never texted!”

Oh Marcell!

So, as I’ve said several times in my blogs, I’ve bought and sold baseball cards for many years, and often times I’ll invest in one certain player. One of those that I invested in recently was Marcell Ozuna. I guess that investment is worthless now! For those of you who haven’t heard, Marcell Ozuna (ofContinue reading “Oh Marcell!”

Fearlessness for June

To start June, I thought we’d return to the great Ralph Waldo Emerson for yet another pep talk. Try this one on for size… This is from “Character” “If I quake, what matters it what I quake at? Our proper vice takes form in one or another shape, according to the sex, age, or temperamentContinue reading “Fearlessness for June”

Were you the tree?

It’s really starting to feel like we’re coming out of this Covid darkness. The increased optimism and sense of normalcy is starting to become more and more evident with each passing day. This feeling is sneaking up on me, almost to the point that I’m forgetting how grateful I should be. I guess I wasContinue reading “Were you the tree?”

Jesus busts a cap in the leper

I was thinking back this morning to those verses in Matthew where a leper approaches Jesus, and gets a little too aggressive with his pleas for healing, and Jesus has to drop him with his Smith and Wesson. Oh wait, wait, wait…. that doesn’t sound right. Oh, I’m confusing it for the time in LukeContinue reading “Jesus busts a cap in the leper”

Fore!

I found this great set of verses in the sixth chapter of Proverbs that seems to go with someone that’s been in the news a lot in the last 5 years or so. It goes like this… “A soundrel and a villain goes around with crooked speech, winking the eyes, shuffling the feet, pointing theContinue reading “Fore!”
