No Escape

October 31st, 2014 · 1 Comment

I am currently looking at getting a new bike. Took a new Indian out for a test ride… that thing was sweet. Great balance, lots of power, and an incredibly comfortable ride. I didn’t even need to hear the sales dude’s pitch… but I got it, anyway.   One of the things that he mentioned, […]

California Dreams…

November 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Ah, finally… a short respite from all of the political ads! Another critical election has come and gone, here in my newly adopted state of California, leaving me with a couple of impressions: Californians are optimists and they do not care for “meanies”… backfiring attack ads were proof of that. And rightly so. Even the […]

Quick Fix

November 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

Today, at work, one of the machines started screwing up. Actually, this has been coming over the past couple of months, but today was the day that things got bad enough to affect its operation. I watched it for a while, identified the problem, and went to get maintenance. Maintenance lead looked at it, and […]

Still Remembering

September 11th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Today, I’m short on time, but not on thoughts. Thought I’d repost my 2996 tribute… Rahma Salie. She is in my thoughts today, as are her husband and the other victims. Forget them not… Rahma Salie The attacks of 9/11 will never be forgotten, nor will most of us forget what we were doing, where […]

Six Words

April 6th, 2008 · 13 Comments

Jean decided to see fit that I get tagged with another meme… a six word meme. A little story behind it: Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our […]

Heart Shaped Box

April 5th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Just finished reading Joe Hill’s first novel, “Heart Shaped Box”. What a great frick’n read… Jude Coyne is a rock star who is on the downside of his career. He’s got a groupie girlfriend, a disgustingly “loyal” personal assistant, two dogs named Bon and Angus… and an obsession with collecting the strange and macabre. It’s […]

A Farewell

March 25th, 2008 · 25 Comments

On the daily drive to work, it isn’t unusual to notice others making their treks, too. Some of their quirks draw attention to them, and we begin to look for them. The Jeep with the “Johnny Cash is my friend” bumper sticker, the biker in the red, white, and black leathers that barely makes the […]

Jay’s

April 26th, 2007 · 7 Comments

One thing about that I like about this area is the number of drive-ins we have. Diners… not theatres. We used to have alot of those, too, but they’re long gone. We’ve got three diners within a half an hour of here… at the least. Jay’s in Oregon, Sam’s in Byron, and Bing’s on the […]

He saw the quick flash of movement, but had no time to react before he was rocked with a horrific impact. As lights exploded inside his head, his mouth was filled with tooth fragments and the taste of smoke. He blindly turned to run, but turned directly into his attacker. A second explosion rocked him, […]

Gasparilla

January 30th, 2007 · 8 Comments

This past weekend, I was supposed to go with the cousin in law to a local event thrown by the natives. But alas, it was “too cold” for us to take the boat up to Tampa for the festivities. I had thought to put myself in harm’s way, just for you folks, but it was […]

I’ve got a ton of crap going down, so posting for the next few days is going to be near non-existant. So I’ve decided to bring back “the game” for the few of you still coming here… To entertain ourselves when we used to travel a lot, a friend and I used to come up […]

With apologies to all, here is my contribution to the Scarevella. Links will have to be inserted later, as I’ve got to leave right now. Time hasn’t been friendly this week (I’ve not even the time for a rough draft). While nowhere near as scary as I’d have liked, I hope it set the table […]

Christina has resurrected her novellas. Yes, she’s had them up and running for awhile now… I just suck at keeping you up to date. You can check them all out at Fiesty Repartee… look down on the right sidebar, under “Fabulous Fiction.” Why remind you of this now? Chrissy has started a new one, one […]

If you don’t like this little yarn, blame Raging Mom. I read this tale over at her place, and I had a story just bursting to be written. (For those of you who think I should have been writing a recap of my trip, you’re right. But this story was written in just a matter […]

An Enemy

May 19th, 2006 · 5 Comments

While Silent Warrior has engaged their forces in the north, it seems that I have a “floater” cell of FART (Free Allied Rodent Threat) bringing their war here. I mentioned before the apparent alliance between the hornets and gophers, and my war with the bees. Not sure if I mentioned the bats, but they are […]
