AutoPsychology 101

July 8th, 2009|Categories: Wandering Ponderings|

About seventy five years ago (or so), I worked for NAPA Auto Parts out of Anchorage, and there was a running joke circulating around the fax machines that would define the kind of person you were by what you drove. It had some real gems such as "Ford Taurus - [...]

Monday Mud ~ July 6th

July 6th, 2009|Categories: Monday's Mud|

I'm now on my fourth cup of coffee, and have yet to clear the cobwebs out. The house is empty, the only commitment, like, three hours from now and music is thumping out in the background; you'd think the muse would be practically giving me a lap dance here, but [...]

One 4th

July 4th, 2009|Categories: Amigos|Tags: |

The 4th of July can conjure up memories for many of us that are similar in nature: parades, bbq's, Uncle Joe passing out on the lawn by 10am. Whatever our shared stories, one aspect that I am guilty of overlooking is that of the sacrifice many of our fellow citizens, [...]

Half Past Friday ~ July 3

Friday, and a holiday Friday at that; I congratulate you for getting to this point with your sanity.

For my money, I'd rather be back in Cayucos, Ca. watching our funky hometown [...]

Monday’s Mud ~ June 29th

June 29th, 2009|Categories: Monday's Mud, Wandering Ponderings|

Monday got here just too damn fast for most of us, and while I can appreciate all those out there who are driven to work, slave, succeed or what have you, my drive lies in finding better ways to enjoy time with the amigos, family and assorted nutjobs that make [...]

Half Past Friday ~ June 26th

June 28th, 2009|Categories: Half Past Friday|

The Half Past Friday survey was delayed this week due to a host of technical difficulties. And by "technical difficulties" I mean I was busy getting ready to spend some time with amigos & The Wife on a river float trip. And by "getting ready" I mean I drank my [...]

The Sissification Files – Chapter 1

June 24th, 2009|Categories: Less Lardass, Tales of Misery|

Indisputable Fact Number One: firefighters are their own worst enemy. The same air of stubborn confidence that makes us wade into the middle of stupidly dangerous situations also breeds a viciously complacent attitude when it comes to our own health. Therefore, it is no surprise at all that heart attacks [...]
