“… a “big-thank-you” to our honorable Citizens, our Dedicated and Committed Military, and their families….”

     We Americans have MUCH to be thankful for….no doubt.  But, in recent years, we seemingly have a shade less to be thankful for.  It seems that so much of what we have been thankful for, and fought to accomplish,  in hundreds of years gone by, is a bit eroded…….. literally, in front of our eyes.  […]

“…I can’t stand to wait…I’m simply not good at waiting…”

I’m sick and tired of standing in line for tickets to the ball game, or local theater.  I’ve been sitting in this darn doctor’s office for the past 2 hours, and they’ve just about cleared the waiting room of everybody but me.   I’m not coming back!  The government is about to tax me out of […]

“…Life is like a banana……… eat it today because it will be gone tomorrow……”

Where do you want to be in, say, 25 years?                You know….25 years is not that far away. For you 35 year olds, it would be when you’re 60 years old; approaching retirement age.   For you 25 year olds… well, then, you’d only be 50 years old.   For me….um, I would have just turned 100 […]

“…You name it, and I got it, I’ve had it….or, I’m going to get it….”

 Let’s get a little PERSONAL.   Last Sunday I turned 75 years old, and I’m “full of it.”  You name it, and I got it, I’ve had it….or, I’m going to get it.  By training, and by choice, I’m an accountant…. A numbers man. I love numbers.  Accounting has been the “back-drop” of by entire adult […]

“…I am a 75-year-old-VIRGIN….”

I am a 75-year-old-VIRGIN.   Who am I?  Um….I’m not a priest.  I’m not a monk.  I am not cloistered.  I don’t live on a desert island.  I’ve not been abandoned in an adult orphanage.  I’m not in “lock-up.”  Too, I am a healthy male.  So….eh…what’s the thing about being a 75 year-old-virgin. Well…. Just listen. […]

“…Years back, a “hot-spot” was a place where one could go, and have a good time….”

HOT-SPOT……..What the heck is a HOT-SPOT?   Anyway? Years back, a “hot-spot” was a place where one could go, and have a good time.  For some, it was Key West, for others it is Miami Beach, or Ft. Lauderdale.  In my neck of the woods, it was the Library, the Hi-Hat Club,  Hard Rock Café, or […]
