AN APOLOGY IS OVERDUE…

AN APOLOGY IS OVERDUE…

Just a reminder, an apology is overdue… I assure you the freedom, fun, untethered simplicity and privacy my generation enjoyed as kids, growing up in the United States (in the 40s, 50s and 60s) will never be experienced by my grandkids, or anybody’s grandkids, regardless of where they grow up. What’s most tragic is my … Continue reading

WHO’S THE SMARTEST VS. WHO WILL WIN

WHO’S THE SMARTEST VS. WHO WILL WIN

About our candidates… Everybody, specially the media, always talks about who is going to “win” the election. I wish everyone would talk about who’s the smartest candidate. There is a difference, you know, between who’s the smartest and most qualified to solve our problems and who’s going to “win”. Just because someone is a “winner” … Continue reading

THE PERFECT COVER-UP…

THE PERFECT COVER-UP…

When I graduated from 8th grade, in 1957, my parents gave me an amazing 35mm Wirgin camera, 2 rolls of black and white Kodak film, I think they were 24 exposure rolls, a brown custom fitted leather camera case with a matching leather strap and a collapsible fan-shaped flash attachment with 6 flash bulbs. The … Continue reading

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE AND SIMPLE…

Lately, marijuana is in the headlines a lot. In 1964 our congress took a big step, and rightfully so, to legislate morality and get rid of discrimination with the Civil Rights Act. Fifty years later, I think some of our states are trying to legislate “happiness” by legalizing pot? Thank you very much, but I … Continue reading

WE THOUGHT WE’D LIVE FOREVER…

As time passes, I often remember you and me and all the fun we had when we were kids. I can’t prove it, but I think you were about two years old when I found you. I was a cocky eight-year-old then. From the way you acted and looked, I decided you had been a … Continue reading

A STICK SHIFT AND SHOELACES…

A STICK SHIFT AND SHOELACES…

The shoelace is one mankind’s greatest inventions, right there with the wheel, the zipper, the ballpoint pen, the tie clip and false teeth. I checked; it was around 2000 BC when the first evidence of shoelaces showed up in the timeline of man. Unfortunately, I think the shoelace business is not going to be around … Continue reading

OUR SONS AT 3 AND 6

OUR SONS AT 3 AND 6

Back in 1976, can’t remember the exact day, a sunny summer day for sure, Billy was 3 and Jay was 6. I watched them playing in the backyard; you know those silly games little boys play. You never know what’s next. Boys, you sure know how to make us hold our breath. We like to … Continue reading
