It’s the Little Things That Matter: At Least That’s What I Tell Jess 8

It's the Little Things That Matter: At Least That's What I Tell Jess
Warning: the following post contains innuendo, double entendre, tasteless humor, and disco music references. Proceed at your own risk. I often wonder how I got so lucky with my wife, the exceptional and clearly-out-of-my-league Jess. Not so much about how I got her (I really believe that was God’s doing, with an assist from alcohol), ...

On Lost Friends and Heroes – Part Two

Hey all, part two of my series on what our military personnel go through is on the Odyssey Online Magazine. I hope you’ll take the time to read it. As always, if you like it, please feel free to share. Here’s the link: On Lost Friends and Heroes – Part Two Again, I hope it ...

On Lost Friends and Heroes – Part One

Hey all, here’s a link to my latest article for the Odyssey. It’s about a tragedy that occurred during my time in a rescue squadron. This was the hardest thing I’ve ever written, and may be the most important, as well (not that anything I’ve ever written has ever been important, really). Anyway, I won’t ...

I’m Still Here!

In case you’ve missed me (and why wouldn’t you?), or have been wondering why I haven’t posted anything lately, I’ve recently started writing for theodysseyonline.com. I’m still going to be writing exclusively for this blog too, I’ve just been really busy. Anyway, if you’re just needing a little dose of moonsthoughts in a slightly different ...

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte 6

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte
This Saturday is June 4th. It marks the 22nd anniversary of my marriage to the lovely and all-round-best-woman-on-earth, Jess, and the beginning of the 23rd year of her life sentence. Through it all, she has never complained, never whined, never asked for anything other than my love (and a new dog every once in a ...

The United Colonies of Corporate America

There is a sentiment that often pops up in a meme posted by veterans, that says something along the lines of “I swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That oath has no expiration date.” Although, it is normally posted by my more right-leaning brethren, ...

What’s Wrong with Me? A Little Overdue Self-Examination 2

There is an anecdote, perhaps apocryphal, that G.K. Chesterton once responded to the question, “What is wrong with the world?” from The Times of London with the answer, “I am.” Now, Chesterton was a very, very smart writer, critic, and theologian, so who am I to question him? However, he died in 1936, and the ...

Bernie Sanders: Why I’m Feeling the Bern (As Stupid As That May Sound)

I am kind of proud to support Bernie Sanders. Granted, I’m only kind of proud because I’m having a hard time believing that there’s a politician out there that I can support, that I can vote for, as opposed to voting against the other guy. I’m a firm believer that a person has to be ...

Monday Morning: A Success Story – Sort of 8

It’s Monday Morning!!!!! Yaaaaay!!!!! Okay, honestly, I feel like a lot of you are not sharing my enthusiasm. I don’t blame you, it’s not your fault. You’re probably having a regular Monday like I usually have: you wake up tired, drag yourself out of bed, stumble through your ablutions, probably cut yourself shaving, remember that ...

Thanks, and A Shameless Plug 2

Thanks, and A Shameless Plug
