Lil’ Gingerbread Houses for You & Me

Twas a few nights before Christmas, give or take some sprinkles, snowflakes, and snow bunnies around; here, there, and on-line flurries everywhere. All through the snow globe, every “creature” was stirring especially the mice. Ma Gingerbread in her icing gown, and Pa Gingerbread in his cap trying to snuggle down for the night with 2.5Continue reading “Lil’ Gingerbread Houses for You & Me”

A Sac-Crow-Mental Tale

Let’s not play “pretend”; we have already established, I have a chronic, keen, and an acute awareness to curses and the cursed, the damned and the unrested. So, let’s begin with the caution tape already surrounding this scene of the crime we call every year upon Halloween time. Watch where you step! There’re people downContinue reading “A Sac-Crow-Mental Tale”

Everybody Knows!?

This story blowing through the summer, French doors, on a hot “cloudy”, August day is about a song, the philosophy, bad reviews and what that says about you, ancient wisdom, customer service, hurricanes, and otherworldly intuition with eternal tuition.

Uncle Cliff’s Notes

“Did you study for the test”, usually stated panicky, sleep-deprived, a tad depraved, and “stressed-out”, because “one” didn’t study for said test and likely wants to “peek” over your shoulder, “glance” at your work, “jot” down your answers, or straight “cheat” off of you! No worries, this story isn’t graded, but as always, participation equalsContinue reading “Uncle Cliff’s Notes”

Day Tripper

This story is about all the places I’ve day tripped before, not to be confused about the song, “being a play on words referring to both a tourist on a day-trip and a “trip” in the sense of a psychedelic experience.” We’ll chat acid trips, knick-knacks, rollercoasters, up-side-down rides, best friends, trucks, and the thirdContinue reading “Day Tripper”

The Minus Touch

“The phrase “Midas touch” is a relatively recent idiom of English used to describe an individual who is able to make money where others may not. The phrase implies that in a consistent manner, the individual is able to profit from their actions.” Subsequently the “Minus Touch” is urban slang, that I’m positive, I originated,Continue reading “The Minus Touch”

Beware The Ides of March Madness

It’s the Ides of March Madness, Baby (Imagined voice of Dick Vitale) …. Let’s get our track, tennis, Nike, or my preference high-top red Reebok’s; we’ve got a quick game of “horse” through history for you, this month’s lucky post. Grab your nasty work-out bag, passport, Holy water, Lara Bar, and purse; we’re off thisContinue reading “Beware The Ides of March Madness”

Use The Force, Valentine!

A long time ago, and in this milky way galaxy, Modesto to be exact, an epic love story emerged from space and time. Her name Donna, his, George Lucas and sadly she turned him down, when asked to prom so many blue moons ago. Her hand already promised to another, but her likeness became aContinue reading “Use The Force, Valentine!”
