Helmet Hair: a Coiffure Odyssey

Anyone who has ever participated in an athletic activity understands the trials associated with keeping one’s coiffure in order. That’s not completely true, I guess. Golfers don’t have to wear a hat. But pretty much everyone else does. We just called it “hat hair” when wearing a ball cap. Cycling is unique among activities thatContinue reading “Helmet Hair: a Coiffure Odyssey”

Are You Excited to See Me?

I was walking Woody and Ruth this morning, and saw a neighbor who was walking his dog. From about a block away, maybe two, the man’s dog spotted us. He was excited. He started jumping up and down, and spinning in circles. He was pulling on the lead, but his owner would not give in.Continue reading “Are You Excited to See Me?”

I’m the Student

Looks like I’m going to owe some money to the school district for which I work. Yeah. When you’re going to school, you pay. Learning costs money.

People, People, I Implore You!

Such a simple machine, but can be life changing. It can be world changing! Burns calories. Saves money. SavesContinue reading “Once Upon a Time, I Made a Promise to a Girl…”

Do You Know Who You Look Like?

I’ve rocked a buzz cut for more than thirty years. I’m not exaggerating. In the 70s and 80s it was all “part down the middle” and feathered, like a pop star. But by the 90s, with thinning hair and an ample girth, I decided to go short. I liked it. Lisa liked it too. InContinue reading “Do You Know Who You Look Like?”

Do You Have One of These?

You ain’t no kind of man if you ain’t got a jar or similar container filled with a variety of nuts, bolts, wood screws, metal screws, screw screws, wire, clamps, washers, wall anchors…I could go on. My biggest problem is I need a clear container because I’ve amassed so many items that any time IContinue reading “Do You Have One of These?”
