Well, Let Me Say This About That
What A Tangled Web

Mother could be the absolute best at untangling things. She had a real talent for rubbing a thin chain, balled up as it may be, between her thumb and forefinger that would loosen the knot so that it could be straightened out. She also had a whole network of spies…

Remember, Recoil & Rest

It’s time for this week’s reflection. Remember. Let us reflect upon the loss of the 41st President of our country. After the leadership we have experienced the last two years, it is necessary to recall the statesmanship as well as the highs and lows of George H.W. Bush. His bravery in…

Who Wants To Sleep With John Waters?

Let’s go chasing Waters next fall! But it won’t be much of a contest because we know exactly where to find him: Camp John Waters. How we never heard of this debaucherous experience until now will haunt us until our dying day, but we’re making up for lost time and…

Hope Springs Eternal

Sometimes, commercials backfire.  Karl and I were watching television this week when one came on for Whataburger.  Now, when Karl calls from the office and asks if he wants me to bring home burgers for dinner, the “whata” in burger is silent.  But this commercial was hawking the temporary return…

Prayer, Preposterous & Pagan

It’s been a trying week.  Let us gather in prayer. Prayer.  Now, more than ever, people of all faiths need to come together at one altar to pray for this country.  Angry individuals are coming unhinged and acting out in dangerous ways.  One sent 12 fake bomb packages to politicians…

Hot Nerds & High Anxiety

For me, the nerdy hot thing started with Howard Bannister.  And, even if the term “nerdy hot” actually is an oxymoron, it didn’t much matter when Ryan O’Neal as Howard dropped his pajama bottoms in the bathroom doorway while Barbra Streisand was taking a bubble bath in What’s Up, Doc?…
