We need to laugh more. We need more joy in our lives. We need an escape - every now and then - from reality. A reality that lately - it seems - sucks more than usual. Yes that's negative and I understand not every day of reality sucks - but I'm here for that ones that do. (Suck more than usual.) When I'm feeling espcially inspired I write long(er) form stories - that you'll find under STORIES. On this page I document my daily - or almost daily - observations of the world around us. You won't find political correctness here and you may run acorss more than the occasional naughty word. If you smile while you’re here I’ve done my job. If you chuckle now and then . . . well . . . that is, in my book, the mound of whipped cream on the Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate Pecan pie.
