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…

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...

Visiting St. Augustine, Florida involves flying into either Jacksonville or Daytona Beach, or connecting to a little airline flying scary little planes. I flew into Jacksonville, and I was kinda smug when I texted the temperature to my wife. It was 77°f (25°c) in Jacksonville but it was 92°f (33°c) in Connecticut – Ha! Well,... Continue Reading →
“We got up before 7:00 am and we walked across the Mississippi River!” That’s true. Of course I should say that both statements are true. We did get up before 7:00 am, and we did walk across the Mississippi River…around 9:00 am. I think it looks better the first way, and you know I’m not... Continue Reading →
I know, One-Liners are supposed to be on Wednesday, but, I think you will appreciate this diversion from the normal path. Two weeks ago, I attended a business meeting in St. Augustine, Florida. One of the things I like about this meeting, is that we can freely talk about things going on in our business,... Continue Reading →
I think the title says it all. I hope the mothers and children who see this post have a wonderful day!
I’ve combined #SoCS with a bar story and National Train Day. I have given this a lot of thought, maybe too much for #SoCS – I’ll see if I can get a ruling from Linda G. Hill, whose Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘on the... Continue Reading →
