HAITUS -- Here I Come

My dependence on this "e-fix" has increased many fold.  I used to blog two or three times a week. then it was every day.  Now I NEED it twice a day. I don't know what constitutes an OVERDOSE but I think I am almost there.  Cold turkey --  I'm...

To WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.

You are either a genius or an idiot!  Don't ask me.  I can't make up my mind. I get inklings of both in your work.  Either may be so.  Sometimes I lean one way, someimes the other. Tomorrow I may think exactly the opposite of my opinion today....

For Munkyman and Anyone Else

Repost of my blog from over a year ago. Complete with original misspellings and all.   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 -...

THINGS That Make Me CRINGE

A few things give me the willies.  God and Nature are too big for me to fight.   But if genetic engineers from some other world made us, I'll have to bide my time but I'm going to punch at least one of them in the nose.  (If I can figure out which one...

The FIRST TIME

The first time hardly counted. I mostly remember it for the thankfulness I felt.  The walking on air as I headed home. "Thank you, God."  I'd been with her the whole afternoon, sitting in the park. We had a beer and I sat with my hand inside her...

NIGHT HEART ATTACK

                                                                  (fact) I had a date with me, but wasn't feeling like doing anything.  All evening waves of nausea had swept over me.  I was alternately way too hot, or way too cold.  I hadn't eaten...

BLIND SPOT

Can a blind spot kill you?  Under the right.. I mean wrong circumstances, it will. Like the time I backed out into an empty highway and a Mack Truck, at speed, was right on top of me.  His reactions and mine worked together to save my family, me...

Not THAT LONG AGO

I think the first home computers were out there such as Commordor16s, Atari Game machines, and Sinclair-Walgreens computers, were already being marketed, when you could still see ads in the paper that said: "Receive Interesting Mails."  Can you...

WHY I RISE FROM MY CHAIR / MY FISTS UP

When i get up from the floor, or my chair, or my bed, I will put my left shoulder up and double my fists.  It is a habit since my heart attack 20 years ago.  I'm telling the world I am not down and I'm still dangerous. It is a thing you learn when...

I WAS ROBBED!

I know, I know.  There are much more important things going on in the world, more important things to write about here than my 'silly-blogs.'  But I'm kind of proud of them.  I have one written last night with 29 comments and another written today...

Sexy Tuesday-ANSWER to Punch

Do men ever fake it?  Not completely.  At least the first part HAS to be real. (Maybe the ring thing works, or the pump-up implant.  I wouldn't know.) And just being there is (more than) half the fun.  It is worth every last ounce of pleasure you...

FRUIT CAKE HATERS, UNITE!

We've had this conversation before.  A year ago?  Two?  Anyway... It is unfair that so many of you receive fruitcakes you dislike at this Holiday time of year. To be of service, I have formed a charity organization to dispose of fruit cakes so...

MY FIRST PROM

Yeah.  We'd been looking forward to it for a couple of years.  Moonlight, Roses, Romance and all that dreamed of stuff.  Maybe some places they do it earlier now, but at that time, in my school it was April or early May of the 8th grade -- dream time....

The MEETING -- (conclusion)

The first part was publishd  11/09/2010   I've had a rich and full life.  There were many struggles in it but also a lot of rewards.  I did not marry until my early 30s. Long before that I was told that I would not, could not have children.   I...

DRIVING MISS NANCY

Our farewells to Pelosi were a little premature.  She must be a genius at twisting arms -- A Godmother who offers deals "that can't be refused."  No one likes to have skiing accidents after all. The Dems have selected her to lead them again.  Let...

PROBLEMS AT THOUGHTS

I use Smart Care computer optimizer. It is the most recommended in computer magazines and ratings companies, for its ability to find and correct problems and bring computers back to speed again. I tried to log in at 4:30 am today. It was...

SOME CAN PUBLISH, SOME CAN'T

I don't understand how this can be. So I'm giving it another test.  There is no Publish button. but last night "Save and View" would let it be published.

Test

Strange as it may seem...they do seem to be working.  We'll see how long it lasts. Lets see if outside fonts works…Força Now all we need is a way to publish. Wow !  just  Wow!!! Thanks team.

"SUNRISE, SUNSET..."

Tevye's song:  "...I don't remember growing older, When did they?"  They?  You!   And this guy in my mirror!   Who the hell is HE?!! Isn't it supposed to be that you have more and more new memories, crowding out the old?  It isn't happening that...

YOU THINK YOU KNOW BUT YOU DON'T

You are so sure you know, you believers, agnostics, atheists.  You -- we -- have only our pitiful senses or imaginations to capture what actually is.  These senses and imaginations are not equipped for this job.  Only the boldest imaginations can even...

The LAST PANTY RAID

These panty raids were a thing of the past when I was in college.  At least at any major college.  It is that nose of news thing. I watch to be able to report a new fad, or the be the last to witness an old fad on it's last fling.  I was a vet and...

LOSING PHOTOS

My history is gone. I keep looking for me but I am gone.  Earliest photos of me as a baby. I trashed those because they embarrassed me. The pictures of me in the first few grades, they were too sweet and I burned them.  There are no pictures of me as...

ANTI-WAR PROPAGANDA

To Hollywood and other media.  Do you really think we don't know war is destructive and dangerous?  Can you really be that stupid?  Do you suppose that we think of war as glorious?  Get with it.  Get Real!  We know it is deadly.  We know loved ones...

EX-TEY NOMY-NUMY-NEMEY NEEMY GO, SOLD!

That's the sound of a tobacco warehouse auctioneer. Only the auctioneer and the five or six or eight active bidders understand what is being said.  The farmers don't.  The tourists haven't a clue.  It is alright for these pros.  The problem is, it has...

IMPOSSIBLE

It really is, you know.  Impossible!  There are some people who will always be sure you were out to hurt them when what you meant to do was save them from themselves.  There may be some you will think are suffering from paranoia.  But when you meet a...
