NO BODY WANTS TO PLAY

Guess I'll just take my racket and my balls and go on home. I can always bounce my balls against the house maybe.

THOUGHTS IS FAMILY

Thoughts is like a large family. We know each other and care for each other. Even the ones that are surly, we still care. And the hateful ones. we put it down to a bad day, We walk away but still we care. I did not know this at home. ...

Women fight with words...

If you ever want to see a cold hearted killer in action just look at women in a fight. They smile sweetly while driving their knife to hilt into thier adversaries.  They do it repeatedly and never lose the sweet, butter-wouldn't-melt, smile.  They walk...

I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS BUT...

There is a cement truck parked in the middle of your VW." "HaHaHa!  Big joke, I'm not falling for it, though." "It's so." "Come off it.  Pull the other leg." "Well, if you won't believe me, you'll see for yourself in a few...

God, obviously Female

Considering the evidence, GOD IS FEMALE. Who gets to stay in by the warm cozy fire? Who has to go out and fight the wolf at the door? Who is met by standing up as she enters? Who has to stand up for her? Who has to taste the wine...

Clip-On Angel Wings

Walking down 16th Street in Denver late one drizzly night a friend and I saw a Nationalist Chinese Air Force Officer looking in a shop window. My buddy and I were both in Air Force uniforms.  He asked me what sort of rank this Chinese had.  "Lieutenant...

Piss Ant Devil

Pastormike's angel challenge brought this to mind... though it isn't what he's looking for. Setting the scene. A country cross roads. Two dozen houses clustered where two dirt roads crossed, beside a 12 grade school and four churches each with...

Despina, Why?

Despina, Why?                      ( Dess-PEEN-uh) Despina, why can't we be lovers? The question I sing night and day. Athena, goddess of art and wisdom, Why won't you show me the way? Though there's a bond that keeps us apart, ...

Chrysalis

My Lost Eve

My Lost Eve I have hunted, searched Through all the tears Of these seven thousand years For my lost Eve Remembering how once we ran Naked through this primal land Loving, sleeping neath covered bowers Unafraid, the world...

About BUGS and stuff.

Years ago, still married then, our credit card debt had gone through the roof and headed Mars-ward. We decided to take on a paper route - 518 customers - many had to be collected from.  I knew the VW bus couldn't handle it and besides it was a bitch in...

QUESTIONS--QUESTIONS

Age old question.... or is it Old Age questions? I go out to the garage-workshop, my hands ready to pick something up. I get there and then wonder -- Why am I here?  What did I come out here for? If it is the kitchen I know it must be food. ...

A Bug In My Ear

Is anything more maddening than getting a bug in your ear.  Especially one that doesn't give up the ghost and play dead.  It is probably no more than a gnat and I'd feel silly going to the doctor over a gnat in the ear.  And yet???  I'm about to go...

First Canada Geese

We are on the flyway south.  But isn't this early for the geese to be migrating south?  I love to see the geese in their flights and sometimes they pause for a few days, sometime even spend a long fall here.   Maybe it has something to do with...

A Debt of Honor

Most of my debts are paid off.   One remains, a debt of honor. a promise to a weary old man, an aging, unsung HERO.   Thanks to another Thoughts blogger the old promise will be paid off, if not by me, then he is taking it over.  An old Danish Sea...

Witnessing a Killing

   The bar was on 44th Street, halfway between Times Square and 6th. (Don't come at me about Avenue of the Americas, It will always be 6th.)  I think the bar was called "Down Mexico Way" or something like that.     I never saw any Mexicans in...

Atheist Fanatics??? ALMOST.

-  Come on now.  Lets play on a level field. -  Atheism is a Faith Based belief system.  Agnosticism is probably more what you mean.  A-gnosis, without provable knowledge that it is so - or isn't.   Not provable.  Not knowing.  But if you claim...

SOMEONE's been eating my porridge

This blog site is more private than my email.  For the second time I have been signed off of my email site because it has been signed on by another computer. There may be many times, but this is the second time I know of. Also noteworthy: My...

SASSY ENGLISH BARMAID

  The bar was in Manhatten near 57th Street.  I loved it because it was full of  Damon Runyan characters - Guys and Dolls types -  and show people.  Also it didn't hurt that every third drink was on the house    I noticed the new barmaid right...

A Garden Spider Arrives

 It's not time for them yet, but a garden spider has just built a web across my door.  GO AWAY!  It's not late September or October yet.  I rather like you in season, but you are here too soon.  Well, I like to see you, I don't like running into your...

WRITER'S BLOCK IS A MYTH

Pin it to your wall.  Make a sampler of it. WRITER'S BLOCK DOES NOT EXIST.   Do not confuse laziness with writer's block.  It's easy to do but it is counter-productive.  You sit down at the keyboard and nothing comes to mind. "I've got...

TWO LEGS BAD, SIX LEGS GOOD.

  My apologies to George Orwell for misquoting his Animal Farm pigs' chant.  This is the phrase that always comes to mind whenever I hear of trouble in the robotics laboratories.  Especially how much trouble it is to get a robot to learn to walk on...
