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

Because Gondolas Don’t Have Windshields
The one productive thing I did yesterday in the midst of watching the Bengals get embarrassingly trounced at home was to prep the garage for winter. See, I don't park the ole Middle-Aged Man Sedan in the garage during the temperate months because there's bikes and sportsing gear and swimming accessories, and, well, a vast … Continue reading Because Gondolas Don’t Have Windshields
Winter Is…Forget it, It Done Showed Up
I've been super pumped about thes socks for a while, largely because with the ducks and hounds on them, I thought for sure I could write a post about Duck Hunt or something.

That’s unfortunate, too, because Thursday usually means wrapping up the week’s homework with the kids, looking forward to “casual day”, and, if I’m lucky, designating it Beer and A Movie Night. Wednesday, on the other hand, means baseball practice, more homework, taking the recycling out, … Continue reading This Is Not The Day You’re Looking For
In Preparation For Snowpocalypse ‘16
If at any point, you had the grand misfortune of being exposed to your local news today – perhaps because you visited a dear, sleepy relative at Withering Acres, or you lost your remote control and were held captive for 3 frantic minutes to whatever local channel you happened to fall asleep in front of … Continue reading In Preparation For Snowpocalypse ‘16

Snowy Days And Shovels
Mother Nature must have heard me when I vowed I wasn't going to spend all winter complaining about, well, winter. Because it sure seems like she's given some of us a bit of respite this season all the way around. Sure, we've had a cold spell or two, but for the most part we haven't … Continue reading Snowy Days And Shovels
