You & I and everyone with any sort of health malady have heard our share of these numbing witicisms. The examples are endless.   I believe people belch out this stuff without even …

Trashed

Trashed

  I tossed it in the garbage with those ads that come each week. Stores we don’t even shop.  Shit-canned without a thought. But this was different.  I think. To most it was a dog-eared file folder.  Two inches thick.  Crammed with pages of scribbled words, classified ads and yellowed letters of rejection.   It …

Ode To A Redneck

Ode To A Redneck

    Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is one of my favorite stand-ups.  Not only is he a nice guy (I got to work with him for a week) but his stand-up slays an audience.  Absolutely leaves them rolling in the aisles!     Foxworthy is best known for his bit “You might Be A Redneck If.” …

Waiting Room Magazines

Waiting Room Magazines

  It would be difficult to estimate the number of hours you have spent in a waiting room over the years. At the doctor’s office, the dentist, the eye doctor.  Waiting rooms in hospitals, banks, the mechanic or the tire store. Throw in an icky health condition like MS, diabetes or heart issues and you …

Sock Flop

Sock Flop

  Stockinged feet have long been my preferred way to pad around the house. They’re quick to put on, carefree & comfortable. Clad only in socks, my feet would move from room to room with dancer’s grace. No matter the surface.  From the plushness of carpet…to smooth hardwood…to cool tile, my feet were happy everywhere …
