Leaves and the snow shovel

November 13th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Saturday I worked for several hours on the last wave of leaves to come down. I found myself thinking of Joyce Kilmer and grade school and trees in a slightly different way – sort of “God, you made these trees, how about a big wind that sweeps away from my house.” Yes, I know, it’s […]

The miser vs. Mr. Generous

November 1st, 2017 · 2 Comments

When I give out candy at Halloween, I make judgement calls. Cute little sidewalk-pounders in costumes get two or three things – no matter if they peer out from behind their parents whispering Trick or Treat or come up to me and grin with a mouth full of baby teeth, and maybe a couple of […]

Halloween – safe to trick or treat?

October 31st, 2017 · 2 Comments

I was inclined to be a Halloween Grinch and button up the house and hide, but Cameron looked at me as if my heart had already shrunk three times its normal side, and so we went to Wal-Mart for candy. I agreed on the condition that he be the one to hand out the candy […]

NFL catch rule . . . Bears game October 28

October 29th, 2017 · 1 Comment

While we were watching the Bears/Saints game yesterday, almost everyone at the PBC & Roadhouse came close to having old-fashioned apoplexia. I am not going to link to a video of the catch; I don’t want to watch it and go splat on my keyboard. I think the refs wear stripes because they should be […]

October 28th, 2017 · No Comments

October 22nd, 2017 · 1 Comment

Avoiding housework

October 21st, 2017 · 2 Comments

I have done the sudoku from today’s paper; I have actually driven one block to Jim’s Pizza to get an icy cold Diet Coke from their vending machine; I have checked the weather, the news and looked at Amazon.com. What I have to do is cleaning, and I mean basic cleaning – such as finding […]

Update from Thomas Bickle’s mother

October 20th, 2017 · No Comments

From a few years I wrote about Thomas Bickle and his family’s story of his fighting a big, bad brain tumor. He lost the fight. It was sad. His mother wrote a blog about his journey and she wrote very candidly and very well. I think sometime after Thomas’ death, I wrote a comment on […]
