Let's say my To-Do list for this week has totally gone by the wayside. I should be working on a bunch of stuff and getting my instruments in tune to play. Part of me blames a day-long headache for what's happened, and a lousy nap that barely took the edge off. Maybe it shouldn't be … Continue reading Waste of a Hot Sunday… a little of this and a lot of nothing.
This one hit me a few days ago when I saw my long-haired blonde retriever-mix dog out in the yard. He was running around on his 40 foot tether line and then lay down, rolled over, and started itching his back back and forth on the ground. Made a funny moment and a damned cute … Continue reading #097– How Come Dogs Don’t Get Grass Stains On Their Fur?
I'm a little surprised summer didn't come into full fury four weeks ago. Usually the first weekend in May heralds a good long HOT summer til about late September. We still have a slight reprieve, but that heat index is making it what it is. I managed to finish the first coat of paint on … Continue reading I suppose we could call this “summer cleaning,” as long as it’s not too hot.
That right up there is my newest guitar...and it's a freaking beauty. And as far as I'm concerned, it's my LAST guitar...unless somebody just up and gives me one for some reason later. I've got plenty of instruments right now, so I think I'll just keep to what I've got and put the rest on … Continue reading It’s time to stop collecting & start practicing…or else, what’s the point?
I forgot the downside of doing so much cleaning and ripping carpet out when I can't sleep at 3 a.m: dust allergies out the wazoo. That's been me the past few days. There's so much that needs to be done to get this house in order so that all the junk is gone, items are … Continue reading A Long Week to Work and Think…
I had three unexpected days off, and if I'm lucky, my tonsilitis will be mostly gone by tomorrow morning, when I'll really be able to get some cleaning work done. I've done some piecemeal cleaning, but it's not enough. I've been telling myself to tackle the mess in my house and storage building for over … Continue reading Operation “Get Rid of Crap Before I’m Buried In It” has resumed…
Every year I say I won't make a list. I won't fall into the gimmick of making a list of New Years resolutions, because it's just another digit on the calendar turned and nothing else has really changed. And they never work longer than a few weeks. But there's a mental milestone that seems to … Continue reading Reduce, reuse, recycle my New Years Resolutions…
Okay the image was actually from Return to Oz, but I like the look of Jack Pumpkinhead too much not to use it. There's something about the holidays that I just hate, and they come and go with the seasons. I'm annoyed by most holidays and wish we didn't make such a big deal about … Continue reading 5 (okay, 6) Reasons why Halloween is my favorite commercialized holiday
This is going to take more introspection than I am used to, but it's about damned time. My work in getting rid of the crap around my house has slowed down to a crawl, though I'm going to knock 1 or 2 spaces off my list this afternoon while the weather is great and the … Continue reading A Place for Me at Home
I'm a weatherbug. I'm the weirdo with a 35mm camera hoping to get great lightning shots in one click and waste a whole roll of film trying. I wanted to film hurricanes and tornadoes. I watched Twister and wanted to be a storm chaser when I grew up. Actually, the movie made me want to … Continue reading I’m Waiting for the Storm to Come: Harvey’s knocking down south… so far.
