Bring on the holidays, I’m ready!

Bring on the holidays, I’m ready!

If you ever wanted to waste your time and dive back into the ever-loving archives of the ever-lovin’ column, Don’t Rush Me — some 30-plus year’s worth — you will run across some columns I have penned lambasting the marketing for profit of Christmas. I am 100-percent positive, I lamented seeing holiday decorations and displays […]

Fungat is as fungat does

Fungat is as fungat does

The weekend before this past weekend’s wind storms, I spent a lot of time outside. Wasn’t hunting. Wasn’t hiking or enjoying the crisp, clean autumn air. Nah, nothing so adventurous or sublime. Just had to finish taking care of the leaves on and around Casa D’Rush. Yeah, there was some raking, some sucking, some blowing […]

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

Hey, it’s November and whenever November rolls on in, I usually need to figuratively slap myself in the face; get my head out the muck and grime of everyday living and taste the proverbial coffee and smell the roses. November is a good time to remember it ain’t all bad. And, things could be a […]

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020-1102: There. Is. Only one. Day left. The question we have asked ourselves is, “Can we survive Election 2020?” * * * I send this exciting chapter of Don’t Rush Me into the hallowed halls of Don’t Rushmedon on Monday, November 2. Mothership Earth is still spinning in the cosmos. Asteroids are […]

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 […]

All of yous, shut up shuttin’ up!

All of yous, shut up shuttin’ up!

By a show of hands, how many of you out there in the readersphere are hoping for the next 45 days or so to be over more quickerer than slowerer? Politics these days suck! And, I find this kinda’ depressing because I enjoy a good, thought-provoking exercise in civil discourse. Remember those things? Let me […]

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 […]
