Chronicles of Wally
- Retail, Hell
- Low Man on the Totem Pole

I write about my life....or lack thereof.

Has there ever been a more disparaged, more put upon minority group than that of the lowly Redneck? Let me answer that for you….NO. Never in the piss-poor annals of this great nation has one group been so downtrodden.
Oh I can hear the disclaimers being cried out even now.… Read full post »
It was a dark and stormy night when Wally M. Geezer came into the world. Well okay, maybe it wasn't dark and stormy, but haven't you always wanted to use that line in a story?

Often times, when speaking to people in the real world about Walmart, I liken the spread of this retail giant, to the spread of a Cancer. I tell them that we here in America, and indeed, the world now, are like smokers.
Smokers, of which I am one, know that smoking… Read full post »

But enough about me.… Read full post »

The one guilty of starting the process of my disturbance was my sweet wife, Daughter of Godzilla. Some deeply… Read full post »
I beg your indulgence today, while I take us on a trip
with Prof. Peabody and Sherman in the Way-Back Machine.
We land in the year, 1965, in the town of Buzzard Neck, Texas...my hometown. I feel the need to revisit a rather humorous event that happened back in this dark age.
In 1965… Read full post »
