Stupid coronavirus.

Stupid coronavirus.

Yup. It’s true. I sometimes get lost. It’s not that I don’t have a decent sense of direction, it’s just sometimes I enjoy the journey and forget to pay attention. It’s the same thing nowadays as it was when I was just a wee, little man. Back in the days before there was a Heather […]

A little ouchy time with Mr. Rush

A little ouchy time with Mr. Rush

So when I heard the sign-in nurse lady say, “When was the last time you’ve been to the hospital,” my first response was, “For myself?” Then, as she looked up from her computer, maybe a little annoyed, I added, “The last time I was in the hospital for myself was when I was born.” I […]

I think it’s time to lighten up a little

I know I ain’t the only one who thought this three weeks ago when the National Football League opened up their 2020 season — however, as the Bandwagon Jumper In Chief it’s incumbent on me to regurgitate what we were thinking then . . . In this crazy, turned upside down world (thank you Kung […]

Time to ditch the Bald Don look

  The other day I posted online, it was time to get rid of the Bald Don look. I have let the chromedome column mugshot go here in the hallowed halls of Don’tRushMedom because, in our angst-ridden times, I thought it might make some of you guys smile. Only my barber knows, but — since […]

Wait, what? Some positive news to share?

Wait, what? Some positive news to share?

In this tipsy, turvy world of turmoil, anger, angst and untrust (thank you politicians and COVID-19), you may not think there are good things going on. Au contraire, mon ami! I know we all have been fed more and more negative news to keep us agitated against one another — fear seems to be the […]
