When we were visiting the Twin City Model Train Museum, I took some pictures of interesting doors I found within the layout. They didn’t all turn out well. I’d like to blame the lighting, or the nearby motion, but the fact of the matter is, I was paying more attention to the trains than I... Continue Reading →
I should have known better. I should have, but I have a weakness for hush puppies. And I’m an optimist. Still, I should have listened to that voice in my head that was saying: “no,dude, that’s not right.” I should have gone with my instinct to look up what, in the name of all that... Continue Reading →
Today is Memorial Day in the States. We set this day as a time to honor those who have died in service to our country. I thought I’d just share a few photos from one of my walks with Maddie. We normally walk past a small memorial in Veterans Park. I also included a few... Continue Reading →
It seems like Linda G. Hill is tuned into the holiday weekend in the country to her south. She has given us an easy prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday – if we were sitting around the back yard. We, however are gathered at the bar. Let’s see what we can do with: “Your Friday...

This is Memorial Day weekend in the States, a time when we stop to pay tribute to the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Memorial Day is not a day to honor veterans, but when thinking about the men and women who have fallen, it’s hard to ignore... Continue Reading →
Tomorrow at noon, the company I work for will cut us loose for a three-day-weekend that unofficially marks the beginning of summer. Officially, it's Memorial Day weekend in the US, a weekend when we honor the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to this country. It might be more about picnics... Continue Reading →
Maddie’s day was difficult but ended very well. My day, not so much. I will spare you as many of the gross details as I can. Late Monday afternoon, I was helping my wife put some fencing around her garden. I was cutting a plastic ring off a fence post when the utility knife slipped... Continue Reading →
One-Liner Wednesday has a new badge! Congratulations to Cheryl. I think my buddy and I will have to buy her a beer on Saturday (kinda like the silver medal, virtual beer).
First, I’d like to say one last thank-you to Dan Antion for your wonderful 2017-18 One-Liner Wednesday badge. It has served us well for the past year, and won’t be forgotten.
All together now: Thanks, Dan!
I guess you’re wondering who, won, eh?
Not so fast.
In 3rd place we had Connection by Wire by J-Dub. Thank you, Jill! Honorable mention goes to you.
Close behind, in 4th place was Take My Card by John Holton. Cheers, John! You’ve won two of my contests so far (SoCS badge and create-the-hashtag #1linerWeds). Keep trying for number three!
Then all close together in the votes from 5th to 8th place came Blue Sky and Clouds by Hip to be Snark, Shoreline by Frank Hubeny, Don’t say no by Jim Adams, and Giraffes by Myrna in that order. Thanks so much to you…

About four years ago, I wrote a post called “I Was the Remote” about how I and every kid my age changed the TV channels, bought snacks and ran errands for our parents. This was back before the streets became so dangerous that the thought of a child riding his bike to the corner convenience... Continue Reading →
Once again, our conversation at the bar is being held in conjunction with Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday weekly challenge. Linda has inadvertently made it easy for me, my buddy and Cheryl by telling us that: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is 'empty/hollow.' Use one, use both, entirely up to...
