He's Keeping an Eye Out for Us

My son and I both enjoyed our aquarium when he was little. We put the thing together with its bottom filter and aerator and all of that. Matt was about six years old. His part in this was to observe and offer running commentary. It was a fairly large aquarium, but we started with easy fish of the goldfish variety. I read a bit about aquarium maintenance.

One of the maintenance tasks required was to siphon out around half of the water periodically and replace it with clean water that…

Preparing for a Theatrical Audition

evans-7639

“Oh really, Algernon, I think it is high time Mr. Bunbury made up his mind whether he was going to live or die; this shilly-shallying with the question is absurd.”

I’ve repeated this phrase nearly a hundred times now in the last week, since I got the email saying I had an audition spot for Pride and Prejudice this weekend. I must have a prepared monologue, a headshot, and a theatrical resume. Dear reader, you may know I never lack for…

Trust Yourself First

Another grand day completed of working in my yard. I love working in my yard. Today, it was leaves and mowing over the stuff lying on top of my garden spot. I get such good stuff from working in my yard. I get the personal satisfaction of seeing a job in the process of accomplishment. I get to exercise my problem solving skills as I determine the best way to do the job today. And, I get to let my brain free associate and solve other of my issues as I work.

As I was dragging around an…

I Could Never Be with a Woman Who Doesn't Love The Stooges

 

Ok. I know how cheeky. I know.

But it's true.

If you're a woman who just cannot bear:

BOPS ON THE BEAN

POKES IN THE EYES

PIES IN THE FACE

PLANKS OF LUMBER UPSIDE THE HEAD

Reflections for the creative person...

I am working on a little book of reflections for the creative person. And this is where things stand...Patrick

 

Reflections for the Creative Person

A random approach to creativity can prove to be very fruitful.

A true friend listens, does not judge and provides encouragement.

At the root of anxiety is the feeling of loss of control.

At the root of love is trust.

Consider the needs of others.

Creative collaboration is…

1967 - Riding the Rails Part II: New Mexico, Arizona, Yuma & Dumbass Me

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Pacific_Transportation_Company

New Mexico…:  I’m not sure about this but west of El Paso the track pretty much runs parallel to the route of Interstate 10 which means two hundred miles of flat sagebrush and desert with nothing but a couple of sidings outside Deming and Lordsburg.  Over the course of 45 years I’ve crossed southern New…

Brussels sprout tree madness at Trader Joes!

First I heard of "Trader Joes" was from Jenny when we first met. I remember the beginnings of an eyeroll, followed by my best listening face. 

"Great store eh? That's wonderful!" Typical man I guess . . and soon forgotten.

Recently, finally made it in there, and was pleasantly blown away by the coolness factor.

Today was my second tripwith her, to not only procure Thanksgiving stuff (we are hosting.. yay), but for tonight's supper and etc..

Some reflections on my high school experience

I promised a former classmate that I would write an essay about my experience of high school. We both attended the former Seacrest High School, now Delray Atlantic, in South Florida. This was mainly a school fror middle and upper class kids, at least I perceived it that way. Everything I say here is my subjective impression, after 50 years.

I did not fall into the middle-upper category, at least that was not my experience…

I live pretty near the center of California.  The Central Valley is a Republican bastion for which I am not a part.  But, many of my friends are Republicans with tea party leanings. Days after the election I did not gloat nor did my friends discuss the results.  Life went on.  But, in the last couple of days I am hearing rumblings about the same thing - the financial market and Obama's re-election. It is almost like…

The Road to Benghazi

 

You can call me crazy – call me irresponsible – even call me late for dinner – but I don’t think I’m wrong about this ~

 

Lately, the Republicans have been nearly losing what’s left of their collective pod-like minds over the supposed cover-up of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.  What did the Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice know, and when did she know it?  And if she did know it, is she stupid and incompetent or is she lying?  That’s about the gist of…

Horny Lizard Caught Red-Handed Doing Pushups

I was hiking with my son and a friend recently in the desert when we happened upon a small lizard humping a rock. I was shocked. The little fellow was going to town on that piece of hardness as if his very libido depended on it:

Up….down…up…down..up.down.updownupdownupdown.

I believe you get the picture.

My friend suggested the lizard was merely sunning itself in an attempt to get warm since reptiles are cold-blooded. I countered that this was nothing more than the vile…

Grover Norquist Collateral Casualty of 2012?

In light of the election post mortems taking place among conservatives, perhaps no one is more delusional, with the exception of Karl Rove, than Grover Norquist. Norquist, a high priest of limited government, is having nothing to do with the reality borne of Mitt Romney's defeat. Rather than to see in that defeat the rejection of four years of anti-government attacks and ideas, Norquist would have us believe that Tuesday night's results have simply "confirmed the status quo of…

Clubfoot

 

The Clubber was late, although he wasn't too concerned. He had an interview with some disgruntled husband who had found out his wife was cheating with his boss, and it was either lose the wife or lose a good job, and it wasn't even close. The wife had to go. Club could care less. He could kill the wife, the boss or all three of them, as long as he got paid. After thinking about it, he thought he  better leave the husband alive if he…

Time to Stop Talking and Start Doing, Again.

The Time Has Come

Some of you may have noticed that I talk a lot. You may also have noticed that I have a tendency to wear a topic into the ground at times. What you may not have noticed is that there comes a time when talking is done, and it is time to do. That time has arrived,…
