Adventures of a House-Husband: Christmas Edition 2

Merry Christmas everybody! Right now, I’m sitting here feeling sorry for anybody who isn’t me. Last night, in an effort to minimize the cooking over the next couple of days, I whipped up another huge batch of Slopbucket; arguably the greatest and deadliest meal known to man (the recipe is in another post entitled “Adventures ...

World’s Worst Grandpa Tells All! 6

World's Worst Grandpa Tells All!
I may be the world’s worst Grandpa, and at this point, I’m okay with that. So, for somewhere between the last two days and 300 years, I’ve been babysitting my two youngest grand-daughters, Charlotte, age five, and Sharon, age four. Two of the sweetest, most well-behaved little girls in the world, two of the brightest ...

Judge Smails Rides Again! And Nobody Realized It.

Judge Smails Rides Again! And Nobody Realized It.
So I’ve been trying to write a new post for weeks now, without success. I’ve started I don’t know how many, and I just kept either getting angry, which is bad, or getting depressed, which is worse, about every one. Part of the problem was mostly, I was writing about politics. I’m having a hard ...

Grandkids, Knowing Your Limitations, and the Wayne County Fair Carnival of Death 7

Grandkids, Knowing Your Limitations, and the Wayne County Fair Carnival of Death
I’ve always prided myself on being kind of a tough guy. Not particularly strong or courageous, but tough, in the sense that I could absorb a lot of punishment and keep going. Lately, I find myself forced to rethink that. It seems that the older I get, the less tough I get, and to add ...

I’m still here! More stupid stories to come! 2

Just in case you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting anything recently (all 34 of you), it’s not because I’ve run out of things to say, or stupid stories. I just started an internship at the Palladium-Item for the summer, so it’s keeping me pretty busy. It’s a completely different type of writing for ...

Winter Is Over! The Return of No Pants Fridays 3

Winter Is Over! The Return of No Pants Fridays
  It has been a long winter, a “Game of Thrones” kind of winter. A vile, nasty, brutal, enough to make me think about moving to Florida and you know how much I hate Florida (a lot, in case you didn’t), kind of winter. It has not, however, been all bad. At least when the ...

A Solemn and Heartfelt Farewell To My Legion of Adoring Fans

I must say “Farewell” to you good people, for this morning, I committed the cardinal sin against my wife, the no longer long-suffering and understanding Jess. As a result, I have absolutely no confidence in my chances for surviving the day. I thought I’d take this opportunity to say goodbye while she is distracted by ...

I need a 12-year old! – OK, that just sounds wrong 2

So, I’m messing with this blog thing. All the stuff I’ve read about blogging talks about how easy it is. I disagree vehemently. Maybe it’s easy if you know what you’re doing, but most things are that way. The dashboard for this thing has more buttons and indicators than my car, and I can barely ...
