Manimal

Manimal

  Part man.  Part beast.  That’s what it comes down to. This is what I am.  A manimal. So just suck it up and accept it, right? I am having trouble dealing with growing older. Especially this hair thing.  Oh, I still have hair.  But as the years drag on, I find it growing in …

The Checkout Lane

The Checkout Lane

  There was the usual chaos at the local Walmart that morning.  Five registers were humming along while four hundred customers waited to check out. I was one of them. I only had a single item, cane tips, for $1.76.  Because there was no express lane, I settled in line amongst the fray.  It didn’t …

What’s In A Name

What’s In A Name

  A product’s name is everything. It can fuel its success or drown its failure. That’s why companies spend oodles of money on research and product development to get a name juuuuust right. They gather focus groups.  They  nudge & nitpick for impressions, thoughts & motivations.  They pour over test market results to learn what …

Grocery Goofs

Grocery Goofs

    It has the title “Grocery Goofs” because this post is nothing more than me rolling through a grocery store poking fun at items on the shelf. And that is WAY shorter than calling it “Me Rolling Through a Grocery Store Poking Fun at Items on The Shelf.” Grab a cart and let’s go …

Well-Worn

Well-Worn

  I added this shirt to our charity pile today. But for an embarrassing reason. Oh it is in good shape.  No rips.  No holes. It fits well.  Not too big.  Not too small. And it looks good whether dressed up or casual. I like it. So why give the shirt to charity if everything …

10 Years

10 Years

  I am not a numbers guy. I don’t believe numbers influence life’s decisions or events like some may think. But looking back I begin to wonder. The number ten, or a factor of ten, really seems to rule what is going on in my world lately.   For example, February of 2009 was my …

This is confirmed by the fact that the shopping carts come bigger than my Honda Fit. Having just received a sale catalog from a neighborhood Sam’s Club, let’s …
