En El Fuego
Hit the thrift store today at lunch. Met Wayne there. I didn't think it'd actually turn in to a topic for a post (afterall, I was only looking for a new sweater vest, honest!)...but I got a post.But I got so much more.I have to start off with the major feat (that should secure my … Continue reading En El Fuego
My Father’s Eyes
It would seem that I am turning in to my dad. I don't have his stature (I'm slightly taller). But I have his nose. And forehead. It's the Skaggs nose and forehead. Ever see Ricky Skaggs? He's got the Skaggs nose, too. So, picture him with a buzz haircut and you're pretty on target for … Continue reading My Father’s Eyes
Les Meme Choses
So, I swore (ok, didn't swear, but thought strongly about) not to pepper this blog with Quizzes. And for only the 2nd time that I choose to remember, I break that and subject you to this one.

Political Correctness has eroded many traditions of my childhood, but this is one I'm gonna hang on to.So, again … Continue reading Merry Christmas
I think the song “Der Kommissar” has a whole subplot about an underground culture of disenfranchised youth that sniff cocaine on the subways. Hmm. How about that?
I will say right now that I don’t have the Seinfeld gene. He always seemed like a whiny twit to me when I would see his comedy routines on Comedy Central or HBO. I laughed no more or no less than any other comedian I saw. I have watched maybe 3 entire episodes of … Continue reading Yada Yada
I Wanna Take You to a G-Bar, a Genius-Bar!
If you've never been inside an Apple store, all I can say is, it's surreal.I had to sign in to see a Mac Genius. When my turn came I was face with a dude that was almost a mirror image of me. At first I thought it was Apple's way of helping me feel at … Continue reading I Wanna Take You to a G-Bar, a Genius-Bar!
