• The wild, wild Westworld

    The last thing I needed was an argument.  The second to last thing I needed was to set the record straight.   


  • Broken phones and live bait

    I’ve told you this before, but sometimes it bears repeating…customer service is dead.

  • When dinosaurs (and reporters) roamed the Earth

    It’s funny how things come full circle, isn’t it?

  • Splitting hairs (with scary razors)

    “So, you’re growing a beard, I see,” someone invariably says to me at least once-a-week.

    “Nope,” I always respond. “Just lazy.”

  • The other side of the consolidation argument

    Grass roots movements are always an important part of the democratic process.   All politics are up-close and personal – how it affects you and your family. 

  • I am the egg (hider) man

    I wear many hats and have a lot of titles, everything from “journalist” to “husband” to “big dummy” depending on the day and situation. I added one to the list on Sunday…”expert egg hider.”

  • Spider and the whiskey bomb

    When a news headline contains the phrases “BB gun,” “whiskey bomb” and “chickens,” I click and read it every time. Granted, it’s only happened once (that being yesterday) but I did click and read it, which does technically mean I’ve done it every time it’s happened.

  • Beans and sausage

    There I was, sitting on my couch Sunday night looking for something to watch. The Olympics were officially over, which had filled my viewing time for the previous two weeks. It was 11 p.m., and there was NOTHING on that interested me in the least (which is basically the case anytime of day, any day of the week, but I digress). I flipped through my channel guide for several minutes before finally seeing something that piqued my interest.

    “Johnsonville Cornhole Championships, from Orlando Florida.”

  • Don't call us

    Increasingly, I've gotten to the point that I just don't want to answer the phone anymore. It's not that I'm anti-social or unfriendly, it's more because I didn't enter any contests and I probably didn't win the fabulous trip to the Happy Daquiri and Bikini Island chain that I'm being told I did.

  • Getting buff

    I don’t make a practice of lifting heavy things very often. When I was younger had more time to work out, I had some old gym shorts and a t-shirt I kept in my car to change into, so as not to stink up whatever clothes I was wearing. Over time, those workout clothes started to stink and, man, I hated doing laundry back then. The whole thing just got to be a hassle. Well, a fellow in Florida recently found an ingenious method to avoid that whole situation.
