Laundry Day

If you’re even remotely self-aware, you have the opportunity to learn something about yourself every day.  For instance, I’ve recently discovered that I am extremely anal as it pertains to laundry.  After much consideration, I’ve decided that it’s a curse.

Stain of Fools

Hello, friends. It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything, and this post will be slow and laborious because my fingers aren’t working like they used to.  It’s akin to being fairly sedentary in lifestyle and then playing several rigorous games of volleyball at the company picnic.  The next day, in addition to a […]

Rummage Sale Season

I recently experienced a situation that very nearly turned me into “The Cranky Guy Who’s Overprotective of His Lawn.”  And as you know, from there, it’s a short, Calcium-deficient slouch into the old man who enjoys a Brandy Old Fashioned Sweet during Wheel of Fortune but can’t make it to Matlock because he’s just so tired.  […]
