Here’s Johnny…………………………………..

After almost 19 months, I’m back. Why? Why was it so long? Because I got a job and we all know that the machinery of capitalism is oiled by the blood of its workers. And like you, I am again one of them. Bleeding heavily. But I have already re-claimed my American sense of complacency and […]

Now That I’m 40, How ‘Bout A Bucket List ?

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. So as I announced Wednesday, yesterday was my 40th birthday. I made it. Sometimes there was some question as to whether that would happen. But over the last four or five years, I increased the chances quite a bit by settling into a more sedentary lifestyle. That certainly helped. So where am […]

If you don’t have a brother, get yourself one

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. I’ve extolled the virtues of family on some of my posts here a few times. My dad is battling some ill health right now and the whole family’s thoughts are with him constantly. My mom is the rock of the family. The epitome of a classic mom. Marian Cunningham from Happy […]

Counting my blessings for 2009

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…….. I’ve noticed in the last 30 days or so how a handful of people have addressed me in a very soothing, friendly, caring tone about how I shouldn’t worry; the year 2010 is going to be much better ” than this past year was for me “. These reassurances come from […]

My resolutions for 2010

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya……. Well, the end of the year is coming near and not a moment too soon. I think I speak for the majority of us who feel that 2009 sucked. Big time. So with that in mind, I am pretty jacked for the coming year. It absolutely can’t get any worse. I […]

I don’t mean to ‘diss these Bulls

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya………. It really just dawned on me last night that so far this season, I really hadn’t talked about the Chicago Bulls at all. I did make a prediction about them in my Dirty Dozen prophecies. I said they will be 43-39 at the very best this year. They are actually more […]

A tribute to a good man, a friend

Dude, I’m tellin’ ya…….. Usually I would espouse on the last episode of Survivor that aired on Thursday night, but I wanted to celebrate someone special that deserves mentioning. On Friday afternoon, I got together with some of the boys from the fantasy baseball league that I play in. We had some beers and made several toasts. […]
