The real outlaw among us…

Of all the pictures that could possibly taken of dude all dandied up for a wedding (a wedding he actually needed to stand up for at the church, no less), I suppose it's only fitting that the only shots of him from said event involved some sort of mayhem... Considering I had a limited window … Continue reading The real outlaw among us…

Story Excerpt: One bad day can always get worse (Part II)…

Yesterday you met our good buddy Doug, who had a bit of a potty mouth, a bit of a problem with his neighbor, and a bit of a tussle in the yard. With a cop. A real cop, it turned out, not just one of those Rent-A-Cop wannabes like at the mall. Doug just assumed, … Continue reading Story Excerpt: One bad day can always get worse (Part II)…

Story Excerpt: One bad day can always get worse (Part 1)…

Once again, as a courtesy to friends and family not particularly fond of my blue language from time to time, I must once again beg your forgiveness and rate this with R. For the rest of you, though (let's hum a few bars and give that first bunch a chance to log out: Hmmm, hmm … Continue reading Story Excerpt: One bad day can always get worse (Part 1)…

A thousand words and all…

You know how they say a picture can tell you a lot? Well, here's two of them. To these two, the 28 years of Valentine's Days between now and then, and many more... Above, the first picture taken of Jenn and I following our marriage Nov. 18, 2017, at St. Mary's Catholic Church near Hallettsville. … Continue reading A thousand words and all…

From an old San Martian: This stings just a bit…

I hardly claim to know diddly about who did what to whom and for how … Continue reading From an old San Martian: This stings just a bit…

Forty days and 40 nights…

That always seemed like one helluva long time to me, especially when you read about somebody like Noah, riding around with not just one but two rattlesnakes, cobras, skunks, scorpions, mosquitos, black widow spiders and those jackass hyenas, laughing at you every time you've got to clean a litter box. Which is almost constant, what … Continue reading Forty days and 40 nights…

Possum killin’… (Part 2)

You met my dog, Hico, in my last installment. We were talking about how you could pick up on all sorts of things from a dog's bark, if you learned how to listen.
