Girls, Bars, & the Wisdom of Young 'uns

Its fall now and I’m liking it. The air is crackly dry. Leaves aren’t turning the colors of autumn yet but they are drying up and fading out on the hackberries and sycamores that dot the hill sides. We ran out of water at the nursery and had to switch over to city water. No more smelling sulfur for... Sign in to see full entry.

My Meriwether Lewis Eulogic Adventure

I’m a bona fide lover of nature but this year I’ve been working six days a week all summer and there hardly seems time enough to get out and do what I want to do. (I work outside which is the only reason I can tolerate a six day work week). So yesterday after a couple of rousing, beer sodden days... Sign in to see full entry.

I’ve been at a standstill on Field Guide over the course of the past week. I haven’t written any new content in nearly a week although I did update and fill in the gaps on the history essay. Last week I started reaching out to agents. I received a polite rejection from one and am waiting to hear... Sign in to see full entry.

A Rambling Statement On Life

I have been working at a high end garden center since the middle of April. It’s the sort of place where the customer says I’m driving the Lexus in the parking lot and you have to ask which one. I am much more likely to see a Hummer, a BMW, or an Infinity in either of the two small parking lots than... Sign in to see full entry.

Two Red Bicycles

The old man lay in the hospital room staring out the window into the bright May sunshine. His wife had gone out to run some errands and for the first time in a couple of days he sat alone and bored. A pretty forty-something lady stuck her head through the open door and said, “Uncle Jack, can Rainey... Sign in to see full entry.

Shifting Lifestyles Focusing on Debt and Work

Yesterday was a good day. I visited my folks in Columbia. It was the first sunshine we've had in a week. My dad and I drove up to the Home Depot at Spring Hill. Funny how that little town has grwon and is becoming gentrified. He bought me a lawn mower and I bought a trimmer and blower. Expensive but... Sign in to see full entry.

A Superaction Hero's Ode to Blogit

Oh blogit blogit blogit. My payment did not go through. Should I even update the credit card? I'm so broke I can't pay attention but I keep paying for the $5 beers so I should make room for a blogit I blogit storage unit for things I don't have room for in my head. How varied are the...

A Ramble Through Metaphoric Sleeping Bags, Lust, and Careers with Wild Bill

I no longer know what to write. The muse is gone and there is nothing to replace her but the drudgery of getting down to living. I sometimes wonder what will become of it all. Is there a long canoe trip in my future? I don’t know. The sleeping bag of life is warm and beckoning but I’m not ready to... Sign in to see full entry.

Gettin' A-hold of a Man

Well, today's weather isn't anything like the heat that was on the day this picture was taken. So its a reminder of a warmer, leafier time. Right now we have about four inches of big, wet sticky snow on the ground. The kind that makes excellent snowballs and leaves your boots and jeans soaking wet.... Sign in to see full entry.

Flippin' the Truck, Choppin' the Leaves

Ahhh man...sitting around waiting for the guy from Dell to call me so I can figure out what he can offer me I can't find alone. I've already found one for my dad on the dell web site and I can get it with XP instead of Vista so the major hurdle is already jumped. I spent the day in Belle Meade... Sign in to see full entry.
