Criminalism Is the New Birtherism

During October’s visitor onslaught, one of our guests came packing a cold. She passed it on to Donna, then her own daughter, then me, then another guest.

Fixing the Holes in the Net

If you’d told me I’d ever agree with anything Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association’s executive vice president and spokesman, said, I’d have thought you were crazy. […]

On the Road, Talkin’ War

Daesh terrorists hit Paris while my buddies and I were in California on a motorcycle trip. We talked about it during stops, and were glued to our motel room TVs at night.

We were racially profiled at the first one, which is to say the BP agent glanced at […]

Tuesday Bag o’ Missed Connections

Today’s post title and accompanying bag photo is obscure, so I’d better explain it. Here’s what it says on the bag:

Motorcycle Accident – m4w – 27 (Kings Hwy) [date/time] Reply to This Post

I was on a motorcycle and we got into an accident this morning. I think you are really cute and I’m […]

Wednesday Bag o’ Solitude

Well, doesn’t that sound self-serving and dramatic! It’s not nearly as bad as it sounds. Donna left this morning for a five-day sewing expo in Puyallup, Washington. Her greatest concern, leading up to this long-planned trip, was that I’d be okay by myself for a few days. Since my recovery is going so well, I […]
