A Helpful Guide For Navigating The Weekend

The picture above contains a popular brand of carbonated soft drink.  Well, it’s also of my desk earlier today, and the door to my office.  And a window showing sunlight and the outside world where I would have preferred to be at 3 PM today.  That’s not to suggest that I don’t thoroughly enjoy my […]

The Nine Year-Old Girl With a Stuffed Giraffe’s Head

As if usually the case, I had every intention of Doing All The Things this weekend. I was going to get all kinds of stuff done and maybe even mark a few things off the List of Husbandly Sloth. However, as is always the case on Monday, that didn’t so much happen.  I guess I […]

The Promise of Spring Frozen In A Moment

I was planning on writing a real post today. A 900 word job that would make you laugh and cry and want to watch Downton Abby.  Something about books or dessert or, I don’t know, pie crust. Maybe about artisan bread or something? I dunno. I mean, who doesn’t love bread? But then the Puddinette […]

The weekend approaches

So it’s Friday around these parts, which means that by the time you’ve read this, the weekend will either already be in full swing or barely a mere step away from your greedy, outstretched paws. Which, of course, begs the question, what are you planning for your weekend? Me? Well, what I really want to […]

The Sunrise at the End of the Street

That’s the view that greeted me this morning as I walked the dog. It was pretty okay, if you ask me. Seems like maybe today’s gonna be okay, too. Well, maybe unless you’re a sailor. Have a great day. And a great weekend! Don’t set the place on fire. Pud’n

Things In My Garage because Things In My Brain

I’m afraid I’m lacking both the available brain waves and the necessary time to write a blog post that isn’t either utter nonsense or the random vomit-age of gibberish syllables. The mean reason, of course, is, well, you probably know the reason. It starts with “I” and ends with “have eight chapters of novel climax […]

Weekend Debate: Sriracha

Yes, I know, I know.  The Weekend Debate is late again.  But, look, the Reds clinched the Central Division  Saturday evening, the Bengals actually won yesterday, and assuming some sort of Disney-style, Fairy Godmother-esque miracle doesn’t befall my Fantasy Football competition during Monday Night Football, I should bring home a win this week.  So, you […]

If it weren’t for busy times, I’d have no time at all

I wasn’t such a stellar blogger this week.  In fact, the only thing standing between this post and the one on Tuesday is a late-night Thursday limerick. And just between you and me, limericks and haiku take about as much time and effort to produce as a cup of hot chocolate from an envelope of […]

Heat Management Haiku

Weekend. So. Damned. Hot. Cool, clear swimming pool beckons And then, ice cream follows.

Surviving the Weekend of Doom

Weeks ago, when I first noticed this past weekend on my calendar, I raised an eyebrow.  And when that plus the subsequent glare of suspicion didn’t clear away any of the events squeezed onto those two blocks of dates, I shuddered. Saturday: 1 overnight Cub Scout campout + 1 Little League baseball game + 1 […]
