"Meanwhile, the Army says that two of the guards who assisted in the arrest of the journalist and who tried to prevent two other reporters from filming the detention were active-duty soldiers moonlighting for Miller's security contractor, the Drop Zone, a Spenard surplus store and protection servic… Read full post »
A Love Tale of the Frozen North
In the wee hours of March 30th, 1867, a travesty was foisted upon the American people. Once again the Executive branch over-reached its Constitutionally granted powers. Hiding this foul deed in the 4AM darkness, it saddled the American people with a… Read full post »
In honor of Jonathan Wolfman's "Jewish Joke Saturday" I thought I'd post a few of my own. Unfortunately, being of Celtic extraction, I lacked source materials. So I had to improvise, a little.
I hope Jonathan appreciates that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...and more sincere… Read full post »
How Little Boys
Become the Men They Are
Something made me start thinking about my father, recently. Maybe it was Trudge's "I am From".
There was nothing really extraordinary about my childhood. I was the younger child in an almost, not quite, middle class family. To esc/… Read full post »
I never could follow the rules and forms. Further, I'm a dichotomy...home that was for many years...home that is and will be for many more.

As a rule I use this forum for lighthearted banter. But today my outrage and bitterness forces me to be political. No...not political. This has nothing to do with politics. It is not a Red or Blue or Tea issue. It is an American issue.

Note- Any fun I poke in this literary journey is tongue in cheek and intended only to amuse my readers. The Low Country of SC is my adopted home, which I love. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I qualify anything I say about the place as being either my… Read full post »
1. Lingerie & pajamas. Bullshit. What do you really sleep
Nada. But I keep a pair of sweat shorts on the floor in case of emergencies.
2. What’s the one thing in your refrigerator you’re goddamned angry about if someone touches it?
My restaurant leftovers. Any of them.&n… Read full post »
1) The hospital in which I was born was torn down. And never re-built. Talk about your subtle hint that they never want anything like THAT to happen again.
2) I was a very advanced child. At roughly 1 year of age I took my first 11 steps. Unfortunately it… Read full post »
A friend, who's political leanings are a bit more conservative than mine, recently sent the following e-mail. You may have received the same. It is floating around.
Over a photo of the President and First Lady allegedly placing the wrong hand over their hearts during the Pledge o… Read full post »
You stalk me relentlessly...like a panther in the moonlight. Twice youy have tortured me with your offer of unbridled love:

1) Floppy- Floppy is a small stuffed (well barely stuffed these days) elephant. He has red inner ears & blue glass eyes and was given to me when I was an infant. I've managed to keep him for 53 years. Where I go, he goes.
2) A brown leather flight jacket- … Read full post »
Veronica Lodge recently posted an excellent blog: Discussion Between The Sexes - Aging Males and Lowered Libido. I strongly urge you to read it before delving into this response.
Veronica wrote, as expected, from a female vantage. I think she did an excellent job of presenting her though… Read full post »
Last night in America, without doubt, babies were born. Equally certain that some people died, and that some did so before their time...and a few long past their due date checked out, as well. People ate or went hungry, slept or stared at the ceiling, worked or relaxed. All the thin… Read full post »
