The State of My Ass Address


   Not much time here because I'm preparing for date night and she'll be home soon, but I feel a need to share so here goes. She works and I don't.

It's been pretty boring around here being the off season. Forget that the high temps are far too low to do much of anything fun outdoors. Snow skiing, snowmobiling, building snowmenz, making snow angels .. none of the frozen sports appeal to me much. Besides, there's no snow!… Read full post »

eight days since ...

       Frances Carolyn Boatman, her given name at birth, brought me into the world at barely 19 years aged and was still raising me, although gently, up until the 11th when she went septic and crashed.

Apparently it's pre-ordained that there will be riots in and around Ferguson, Missouri upon the grand jury decision to NOT indict the cop (Darren Wilson) that shot the kid (Michael Brown) this summer.
Note: no grand jury decision has been reached, or if it has, the news has not… Read full post »

update [updated!(pics)]

Hello you same ol' people. Something comforting in knowing that we will never have to deal with new avatars dontchaknow. We are one [not so] big [not so] happy family as it's played out, and I've learned to love and/or hate each one of you in my own special way.… Read full post »

eyeball issue

Woke up this morning with my left eye glued shut, swollen red and pussy. 
Sayin', there was pus, the yellow nasty stuff, encrusted and seeping. And it hurt.
Not being one to panic and run to the doctor with every strange little pain, I rationalized that whatever it… Read full post »

This morning as I drove west on 435, the outer belt spastastic perpetually under construction 13 lane that surrounds our busy city, I noticed a medium-sized furry green moth resting atop my door next to the window. They get in my truck at night if I leave the glass cracked… Read full post »

hot garden blues

Zucchini I am so done with you.  We made zucchini bread which was decent, but really it was a desperation move. Get the grater baby. We're making these big green bastards into something! And there were other recipes and then .. enthusiasm gone, done. Two large ones stole much needed… Read full post »

Open Salon used to be so cool. There were always fights and apparently some of the old timers have forgotten that. I think the reason the golden age [to me 2009 to 11 -- I missed 08 but heard it was great] was better, is that there were

hawk sauce

   My Dad has been gone for 9 years. Didn't see him often for the twenty years prior, but that wasn't his fault, or even mine. His new shrew wife was to blame for isolating Dad from us kids and I used to hate her but not anymore. How long can… Read full post »

Wood Pecker

   There's a cheeky family of woodpeckers out back living off my finch feeder. I say "family" but in reality have no clue if they are related. Rather presumptious to assume that just because of common genes they're shacking up. If it is a common law situation, and I am tRead full post »

it's all there (m-day tail)

    Charlotte texted me at 12:26pm. Our meeting was set for 12:30 so I was on my way, just up the block. She said "I'm here, parked between D'Bronx and the deck/cabinet store." I didn't know what she was driving, having forgotten to ask, so parked in that general… Read full post »

dear diary on rain day

Hard core rain today, which is great. Someone told Asia we are at 45 inch shortfall for the last two years and I believe it. That said, it's been a nicer than expected Spring .. far better than last year at least.

A fishing trip will be happening in the near.… Read full post »

Obamacare leads to incarceration

When you want Obamacare, you drive to meet Kat the broker who has proven trustworthy and has all the answers. If you're running late and have anal retentive tendencies for being on time for appointments, and happen to turn the wrong direction off the interstate on a busy thoroughfare, you… Read full post »

Revenge for the ghost of PS Hoffman

I too liked Phillip Seymour Hoffman a lot better alive than dead.  
The condition which ultimately took him out of this world is a treatable one. The only option available in America, abstinence through AA and NA worked for him for twenty-two years . . until it

birthing hips

Trying to maintain a once per week blog, but here it is Thursday, most optimalist day for publishing as I've discovered through my own primitive observations of net algorhithms, and I have nothing.
What to do but plow forward? Ramble on . . .

J. Osteen v J. Christ

       I have a love-hate relationship with facebook. Mostly hate, which explains why I keep a tab open all day long, right. Didn't join forever, then did for a while, got disgusted, and quit for months. Finally re-joined under a pseudo because (mostly, ha) it's the best waRead full post »

legal pot alarmists --- STFU

According to today's Huffpo piece on Colorado legal weed - "Marijuana skeptics watched in alarm. They warned that the celebratory vibe in Colorado masked dangerous consequences. Wider marijuana availability, they say, would lead to greater illegal use by youth, and possibly more traffic acRead full post »

Men and their balls

 Hundreds, if not thousands of times, I heard my
Grandma say in feigned (?) disgust -
"men and their balls!" 
Sometimes it was "men and their damned balls." Grandpa would shush her to which she would often reply in a shriek of sorts that scared me and
