Adult Truth #16

“I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.”I don't frequent bars. I'm not a beer drinker. Now, this isn't to say I haven't imbibed and if you ask the right friends, they'll tell you tales of times when I've, uh, well...let's just say I overindulged a bit. However, this brings up an interesting point. Motivation.Unfortunately, with this case…See More

"Yes, I always enjoyed Nero Wolfe dinners. Well, I exercise, but Mallory is still in better shape. In fact, when I am exercising, and I get tired and fell like quitting, I think about her and that helps me keep going. It's like I'm…"

“On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food.”Well, then bring along some Fritos.***Last time I talked about my basic day-to-day schedule, but my eating schedule has also changed since the move.

New Year's Resolutions

I entitled this post 'New Year's Resolutions' for a simple reason: I don't make any. I used to but made progress on them for only about a week or so, then fell back into old habits. You know, the old standards: more exercise, watch the diet, quit smoking. Whoops, well, I can't claim I ever made a resolution to quit smoking since I never started.I've been thinking about the end of the year for a couple…See More

I don't have the strength to do many pushups because of my right arm.For those who aren't familiar with my story, let me share. When I was a baby I fell out of bed. I was ill and the infection settled in my ankle and elbow. The ER nurse told my parents that I was crying just to get attention. (Dad, to this day still rankles at…See More

Adult Truth #15

“I think the freezer deserves a light as well.”Why not? Illumination certainly would make finding that long forgotten frozen bagged hunk of round steak you placed in there eight months ago an easier task. This is one of those questions that nobody has taken the time to answer.How does this truth relate to writing? Again, you'll have to stretch your imagination a bit, and use your creativity. When I read this I thought of…See More

Perseverance

Perseverance Many moons ago I attended a taekwondo tournament in the Minneapolis area. I was either a Second or a Third Degree Black Belt at the time and my competition consisted of some excellent martial artists. In the sparring competition, I faced a gentleman who, within a minute, executed a spin hook kick to my head.
