Stuff to make you feel old

Like most of us need any help with that.  If you’re like me you get reminded every time you get out of bed.  Still, I guess I might as well add insult to injury, as it were. This little stroll down memory lane is a cold hard bucket of reality dumped over your head.  At […]

This is your hound…

                            This is your hound on Possum…                           I’ve always liked Bluetick Coonhounds.  If I lived in the country, I’d want to have one, but we don’t.  We live in […]

Go with what you know

Or perhaps I should say, “Stick with what you know.” I am a big fan of U2 (or at least their early stuff, as I haven’t bought or even heard their last few albums).  Joshua Tree is, in my opinion, one of the greatest records ever made.  It is one of 2 albums I own […]

Random observations from the Farmer’s Market

I went to the local Farmer’s Market this morning.  I’m not a regular, because I don’t regularly get up before noon on Saturdays, but I go often enough to know where the folks I like doing business with have their tents.  The Farmer’s Market is held in the parking lot around 3 sides of a […]
