Adventures in Surveying: Falling Trees, Deluge, Ticks...Jail

Surveying has been real this week and it has been fun, but it hasn't been real fun. We've spent the last couple of days under the hopeful specter of rain that never came, at least not at the right time. To be good rain needs to be falling in the morning when I wake up and the radar needs to show a... Sign in to see full entry.

Homegrown Tomato Sandwich and My Garden Thoughts

I just finished eating perhaps the greatest summer meal of all time: a homegrown tomato sandwich. Mine was made with Publix whole wheat bread, toasted and smeared with Duke's mayonnaise and the guest of honor was a good ripe Bradley tomato from the 40 some-odd plants I set out at my parents house a...

10 Important Fiction (and Light Non-fiction) Books as of 30 June 2007

I scribbled the following list on a cocktail napkin as I sat sipping a Yazoo Pale Ale and was being ignored by perhaps the worst bar tender in Nash-vegas. 1. Women by Charles Bukowski – the ultimate introduction into the booze fueled, sex filled, chauvinistic world of the original dirty old man.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Mountain - How TAPS Drove Me To Drinking

It can be so difficult sometimes to sit at home. I was content with the notion of having a nice quiet evening...that was at 2:30 this afternoon and I was tired from a day spent in hot sunshine walking through fields and dirt. But now its 7:30 and I have that inner urge to go on out and see what I... Sign in to see full entry.

Lust In The Time Of Dried-Out Boogers

Sometimes I sit down at the keyboard and just start typing. I sit down to write with nothing to say but then I just start moving my fingers and my mind catches up. So maybe I can write about our drought here in middle Tennessee. Its very bad dry. Wednesday T and I were at one of our largest... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Wear Underwear (and the short episode of a successful songwriter)

and my cargo shorts, as always, seem too big. I just walked back up the hill from the mailbox, without a belt, and my short pants were in constant threat of dropping off. What a surprise that would have been to the young lady with the sad face, who pulled up to check her mail, leaving her squallin'... Sign in to see full entry.
