‘Tis the season to help those you don’t even know

‘Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Don’t hit the folks standing in the roads selling newspapers!? * * * I know it’s that holiday time of year because over the past six weeks I have put together area Goodfellow newspapers (boy, have I been putting together Goodfellow newspapers — but, I know, you don’t want […]

What would you ask your Congressman?

Maybe it’s because we live and work in Michigan, but, I see more and more locals shaking their heads. I read more mail from folks with this general attitude, ‘Our system has failed us.? Maybe it’s because we see more signs reading, ‘Liquidation Sale? or ‘Going Out of Business Sale.? Maybe it’s because we’ve all […]

Thomas Jefferson on this past election

It’s over! Thank whomever you will, but thank ’em goodly for the past election cycle passing. How crappy can politicians be to one another? And, how idle-minded are we to listen to their crappiness? I can only venture a guess, but I’d wager political advertising will only become increasingly negative, false and salacious before it […]

Time, it keeps on slippin? into the future

Dear wife Jennie startled me a week or so ago with this revelation, ‘By the time the boys are done riding the bus, I will have spent something like 21 days of my life, waiting for the bus.? Jennie calculated both Shamus and Sean would ride the bus up until the 11th grade. Yikes. That’s […]

What’s ‘standard? about Standard Time?

From spring, through summer, into fall: Tiger Love

I have to come clean. I need to purge my soul. Get things straight with The man upstairs. Uhmm . . . I have been immersed in a summer-long affair. Yep, it’s true. But, what you don’t know is that dear wife Jennie — always a gamer — was involved, too. I know, I know […]

Hot damn! I got a stye in my eye!

Last week I got some great news. News that had me whistling happy tunes, snapping my fingers and tapping my toes. I had a stye in my eye — left to be exact. That’s it. That is my happy news. I went to the urgent care center in Oxford, sat down on the table-bed thing […]
