This was my backyard Saturday morning. Picturesque beagle/black lab mix aside (who may or may not be relieving his overnight pressures at the moment the picture was taken), the rest of it is an absolute outrage and a mammoth middle-finger to the face of all decent autumn-loving peoples. Snow should not be perceptibly falling in … Continue reading An Old Man Complaining About The Weather
How To Make A (Weeknight) Turkey Pie
Anyway, here we were with a full mound of leftover turkey breast (mound is the metric designation, mind you. In Imperial units it was a chunk-load), and it's not leftover turkey sandwich season. What's a family to do then? Captain Obvious would like to suggest perhaps making a turkey pie...
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 31
This strange springtime of social distancing keeps presenting me with new opportunities to string sentences together that I never in a million years thought I'd say. Case in point, the latest of such unexpected statements: today I am indeed wearing a pair of socks emblazoned with the face of the Governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear. … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 31
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 21
Ok, yeah, that was bad. I expect more from myself in this space than cringe-worthy puns and dad jokes...
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 9
Who's socially distancing like you and me? SpongeBob SquarePants!
Socks for Social Distancing, Day 2
My understanding is that people across the country are starting to feel a little stir crazy already from our current exercise in limiting contact with each other. When picking out socks this morning, then...
Day Four (is kinda about haiku)
It's Friday here, and I'm working hard to make sure I accomplish today's goal, so I gotta keep this short.

Luckily, explaining my Day Four goal … Continue reading Day Four (is kinda about haiku)
Lies, Damned Lies, and Star Wars
I seem to recall swearing up and down not even a month ago that I was going to reset my evening activity schedule and commit to writing and/or reading instead of spending three hours staring, slack-jawed, at a screen full of bright colors and explosions. In fact, there’s probably evidence of said promise in the … Continue reading Lies, Damned Lies, and Star Wars
A Day In The Life
I’d fully intended Monday’s post to stand as a sort of personal affirmation about the shift in my nightly focus away from binging on superheroes in high definition and towards kicking ass and taking names my own self, on my own projects. However, shortly after the post went up, it was pointed out to me … Continue reading A Day In The Life
A Saint Patrick’s Day Primer
The calendar once against says today is March 17th. You know what means, right? It’s Saint Patrick’s Day, aka, the Feast of Saint Patrick, the one day of the year dedicated to the patron saint of Ireland, a man I’m pretty sure was canonized more for his conversion of Irish pagans to Catholicism than anything … Continue reading A Saint Patrick’s Day Primer
