The Guy Who Invented This Should Be Shot!

Not the best of times It was the worst of times and trust me I didn’t need two cities to know it was, because I was in the drive-thru line, at a local hamburger place. If I had another city, some best of times might’ve shown up, but I couldn’t have gotten there anyway. I …

The Game Is Finding A Game Without Going Gamey, And I’m Game.

A great Opening I have come to the conclusion that there are two kinds of people; Those who eat roadkill opossum and Those who don’t. Now, isn’t that a great opening line? Old Charlie Dickens never thought of that one. Did he? Of course, he never wrote in the caliber of Mr. Ohh! either. That …

Talk Fast And Never Ever Be Understood!!

A word And now a word from our sponsor. This is a famous line, which has been used since the days of the Pharaohs, to announce that a commercial is coming. Of course, in the days of ancient Egypt it would have been said like this: this: <arm, water, hand> <water, quail chick, quail chick> <arm> <quail chick, quail …

Spider, Spike, And Skull Are A Pain In My S!!

I used to worry... In the before time, I thought my daughter turning sixteen would worry me to exhaustion because she would suddenly develop “Girl Parts”, become an emotional hurricane, start talking about boys, and want expensive clothes I can’t afford. I have enough problems without a pubescent female homo-sapien roaming my house wanting me …

My Life The Musical or (High schoolers are still nuts)

Let's start with the Disclamer There are some things in life which a person has been waiting for, and they never even knew they were waiting for it. Wow, that sounded intelligent!
