Bunnies, chickens and pigs . . . oh my

I actually had a good time sweating last Wednesday. Remembering the day, it was in the 90s, muggy and humid. I actually wilted a little bit while a smiling blonde dynamo, a whirling dervish . . . a big straw-hat wearing spitfire showed me around what was once the Baylis horse farm on M-15 in […]

What dads really want for Father’s Day

What dads really want for Father’s Day

Okay, all you moms and kids out there, listen up. I am giving you ample time to get this correct this year. Father’s Day 2021 is two Sundays away. To make this the most successful Father’s Day in the annals of history — and to set the tone for fathers’ days to come, read and […]

Just me and my shadow?

Just me and my shadow?

So, for the last couple of weeks when we’re alone and sitting down we just get to pondering. We think about the meaning of life, the cosmos, lizard men, ancient aliens and how we all fit in this giant mosaic of colors. From our conversations an old kid’s song came back to us. It was […]

Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?

Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?

I asked a question in my headline, and I think it was an appropriate question, “Sunny and 80 for Memorial Day?” The answer, sad to say, is, “No.” Weather prognosticator Swami Don says this weekend while, reverent and solemn, will be kinda’ sucky (which also means it will be sorta’ good). According to my phone’s […]

How to talk to a French pig

How to talk to a French pig

Yeah, the nightlife of your hero (that would be me) is quite exciting if not down-right enthralling. After watching Jeopardy at 7 p.m., things really start ramping up for one Dandy Don Rush. Because I’m the quintessential renaissance man, I have options available to me that maybe mere mortals do not. Gender, I reckon, does […]

Don says, “Skin to win, Baby!”

Once again my neighbors dodged the proverbial bullet. Mike and Kathy K., should thank their lucky stars I am not good with remembering dates and events related to dates. Yup, for like the fifth year in a row the neighbors were saved from the horrors they could have been exposed to. World Naked Gardening Day […]

When guys have ‘baby showers,’ Part 2

When guys have ‘baby showers,’ Part 2

So, there I was last week minding my own business, comparing the differences between a baby shower and a diaper party asking poignant questions, and weaving a story of words to capture reader attention about an event I had attended, when I had a thought: I really need to cut my lawn. As of this […]

When guys have ‘baby showers’

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know, I know. I am old. I have white privilege (to go along with my fast whitening hair and beard). Yup, I am the Neanderthal Philosopher and so I don’t get a lot of what’s hip, cool and accepted these days. I get it. But . . . . . . […]

Flowers are budding and other such stuff

Flowers are budding and other such stuff

This is a pretty, gosh-darned groovy time of the year. The whole “life renewed” stuff really gets the blood rolling. Makes a person want to get out and do something. Unfortunately, I haven’t been that person. I’m still waking up from winter and have difficulty rolling outta’ bed. And, while it is only the middle […]
