Let That Be Your Last Battlefield (Tip of the hat to 'Star Trek')

It's difficult for me to even fathom that I haven't written a 'useful' word toward a story in about two weeks. December 29th was the date I see on my list of 'works in progress.' That's pure craziness in my world and maybe the reason I feel like the way I do right now. 'The way I feel right now.'... Sign in to see full entry.

Boys Make Excuses, Men Make Changes

For personal reasons, I am concluding my postings here. Toward the end of January, I will remove my stories and other postings and not renew my subscription. Of course, the question will always be "Why?" I can't really explain it properly and thus, it's better to just say, "It's personal." Way back... Sign in to see full entry.

Holy Crow!

Well, I'm glad my self imposed mission to be out and about with my friends, spreading smiles and good cheer, I'm home for the rest of the weekend. Sadly, I've found out that while I was spreading good cheer, someone was spreading a nasty cold germ. This fat guy doesn't feel good and is gonna head to... Sign in to see full entry.

Here's To 2017

A few weeks back, I posted that I would spend the last days of December 2016 doing 'Random Acts of Kindness.' or 'RAK's.' My Father instilled that in me and old habits die hard. I've spent the last couple days visiting older folks who don't get out much or don't have families. Big Bad Brutus went... Sign in to see full entry.

Write On!

As I've blathered on and on about endlessly, I got my weekly report email from Grammarly, and this one gave me my "Year In Review" report. No, I don't have stock in the place, I just find this app a wonderful place to clean up my writing. Many times, people will ask me what I do all day. I write,... Sign in to see full entry.

One From Column A or One From Column B?

I'm at the point of starting one or another storyline I've held in abeyance until I finished "The Totally Unnecessary Death." I've done that and have a conflicting allegiance to what I want to do next. Guide me, please. I have another 'crime story' about a subject that actually is a serious problem...

And He Huffed And Puffed And ALMOST Blew The House Down

Well, well. We went from a balmy 56 degrees about noon yesterday to about 22 over night. Of course, just to be fun, we had a steady 30 mph wind that would gust to over 50 mph. It follows that just as I sat down to do some comprehensive writing, the power went off (about 4PM) and didn't come back on... Sign in to see full entry.

A Long But Happy Day

Yesterday was a such wonderful time. My son and his wife had belt come off the engine of their car about noon time, you know how it works, just as everyone was closing for Christmas. Fortunately, a friend of mine owns a part store and I got him to not only to re-open, but deliver the belt and help... Sign in to see full entry.

To use the title from a Dorothy Parker story, "Here We Are." It's about 10AM Christmas Eve and boy oh boy has it snowed! My son is coming to lunch for the first time in three years. This is the first time in a long time he hasn't been deployed somewhere. He was a field medic in the military and has... Sign in to see full entry.

A Gift For You All, But Especially for CCT

This is a pdf version of my "best selling book" over on Amazon, "Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life." This book has sold over a thousand copies but yet it has only five reviews. I never understand that business. I'm not sure what version of the story that this might be, so here's hoping I... Sign in to see full entry.
