Howling At The Moon…

What to do, what to do? Should I just accept that no relationship is perfect and that things are as good as they’re likely to get? Or should I start contemplating a “2nd Amendment” style remedy? I wonder, what would Ted Kaczynski do?

Old Man Take A Look At My Life…

Truth be told, I wasn’t exactly enthralled by Neil Young’s voice when I first heard him sing all those years ago. But, being that “Old Man” was released so close on the heels of my father’s death, it naturally caught my attention. And now, having been reminded of it again by my TV, it’s occurred to me just how much my life has come full circle from that time.

What’s My Motivation?

The title to this post is from a recurring joke in my internal dialog, originating from some long-forgotten line in a movie about acting. In case you haven’t noticed, a major underlying theme of this blog is my confusion about (and outright resentment towards) the stupid roles we’re all forced to play in order to “fit in” with those around us.

Latent Images

We all have memories we’d rather not dwell on. Memories of decisions we’ve made that have haunted us ever since. And I think we all wonder how things might have been different had we, or others, made different choices.

And The Home… Of The… Strange?

Poor Margaret. If anyone knows how Marilyn Munster felt, trying to “fit in” with her “cuddly” little clan, it’s her. She’s as cute as a button, and she’s got a nice voice too, but her “family” may just have you scrambling away from your monitors as fast as anyone escaping The Munster’s home on Mockingbird Lane!

You have been warned! 😉

Turn Me Loose

1981 was a big year for me. That was the year I graduated from college, started my second career, and finally began settling into that “family guy” role I’d been dreaming of for nearly a decade. But this “transitional phase” was anything but a smooth one… All of which left me feeling just a tad stressed out and scrambling for ways to feel more in control of over where all this was headed…

Love Without Words

And speaking of the choice between fate and free will, I’d like you to take a look at a video my son recently uploaded to Facebook. You know the one I mean, the idiot goofball that did the video I included in my Nature or Nurture? post…

It’s Make A Mockery Saturday!

How’s about a few jokes, and some great music, help kick your Saturday into high gear? The first joke is from my good friend Rosie, who’s son has a major operation coming up at the end of the month. I hope you’ll all keep her and her son in your thoughts…
