So yeah, I don't see why you wouldn't want to doughnut on a Monday these days...
I was thinking happy thoughts and having fond remembrances this morning of the Before Times, lo, 10 days ago, when a person in America could saunter up to a bar and grill—hell, even an Applebee’s, if you were pressed for a spot—and order a big sloppy cheeseburger and a cold beer. They were good times, … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 7
Somehow it's already 11 pm and I'm just now starting to write today's post. When I was doing the Daily Sock, I'll admit that happened all too often as well, but I had kind of hoped not to already be pushing the limits of what could be accomplished in a day on Day. Freakin'. One. … Continue reading Day One
Not knowing how many more days 80+ degree days 2018 is going to give us, I broke out the tubed meats this afternoon and fired up the grill. To go with the today's end-of-summer weekend grilling, I was glad to see I still had a pair of hot dog anklets in the drawer this morning. … Continue reading One More Blast At The Grill

These hamburgers really didn't have much to do with my day today. I didn't have a burger and had no real plan to grill when I put them on this morning.

Lo and behold, after weeks of seeing naught but blooms and the occasional wee sprouts, I found some things growing. … Continue reading Hey, there, ‘lil guys

And, sure, at first you hesitate … Continue reading A Night For Last Year’s Cookies
On occasion, I have been known to chase significant, specific change in my life as the result what most people might generously refer to as “an odd tangent”. Less generous individuals might, however, suggest that sometimes I get a wild hair up my….well, you know. The point is, from time to time I get this … Continue reading The Gallon Sized Bag Of Foolishness
I went out on our back patio last night to enjoy the dwindling moments of daylight and the evening breeze with The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. What I found before settling in astonished me. We have… …made the green… …things grow! I realize that many of you are probably eying my … Continue reading A Backyard Summer Miracle
