A Christmas Love You12/14/14
You can never tell when something wonderful is going to happen. That's part of my book, Staying Happy, Healthy And Hot (available at Amazon.com...shameless plug.) And 5 years ago something wonderful happened in our family. Our little Princess Cecelia...
Merry Christmas Stories
Pretty simple this time. Lots of Christmas stories you've sent, and a couple of mine. Plus, "Pick A Person." Pick somebody you know who won't get much attention this Christmas, and give him/her...a little attention. Not money. Maybe a couple of really...
The Hark Lark
I tried to get you to do this last year with little success. Big Louie always says, "You can never tell when something wonderful is going to happen," so maybe I'll have better luck this year. Also, Pick A Person for Christmas is in here, and maybe the...
Pick A Person For Christmas
It's Ho-Ho-Ho time again. And I think it would be neat if we'd pick a person who may not have much ho-ho-hoing going on in his/her life, and lay one on him. Not looking for money, just a little attention...and maybe a Tootsie Roll kind of a gift. It...
I am now a newly minted Skype-scraper. A Skype-scraper is not a tall building with a TV antenna on top. A Skype-scraper is a guy who manages to scrape together enough equipment to use a computer video program called Skype. The new computers make it...
I am sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living room, after having a born again experience earlier today. I remember when I was born the first time, it was such a surprise that my parents said I didn't talk for...
I am sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living room, and I'm about to tell you about three little words that just came in over my phone that has made me wax philosophical. As I told you in my book, Staying...
The True Meaning Of Halloween
I think I have discovered the true meaning of Halloween. Halloween features a squadron of little kids with hobgoblin masks, ghostly sheets, and little princess costumes coming to your front door, and threatening you with a trick if you don't drop some...
I was happily chomping away on my ham and Swiss on whole wheat with a slice of raw onion and mayo, when all of a sudden, I realized I had the sandwich in my left hand. I am a very right handed guy. I have often been glad that I am a very right handed...
The R Word Again
I'm sitting here in my big, comfortable, black leather pappa chair in my living room, in total shock. My Lady Wonder Wench just said the R word to me again. I think I'd better stand up for a moment, just to prove I still can. There. That's better. I...
The Lady By The Window
My Lady Wonder Wench and I were at the diner today, and as usual we were kidding around with our waitress...I refuse to say waitperson. There is no gender confusion going on here, Stacey is definitely a pretty young woman. As I have explained in my...
Yesterday, my friend and next door neighbor Randy and I were discussing the fact that our kids are now driving cars, and we're riding our exercise bikes. Randy is a lot younger than I am, but we're both members of the Louie Louie Generation. So we...
A Shower Duet
I've been sitting here in my big, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room, watching ESPN. They just showed a video of New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey on one of the rare times he got shelled in the third inning, and Terry Collins, the...
Your Summer Is About To Expire
Where the heck did the summer go? The lazy, crazy, hazy days of Summer...and the under the boardwalk nights, watching the fireworks...and making some of our own...and the most beautiful girls in the world in their summer dresses...and walking in the...
One More Soft Summer Rain
Summer is a woman. Hot, sexy, wild, hazy, soft, flashy, and dangerous when wet. She can be full of stings and bites...but she's also endlessly beautiful, satin smooth, fragrant, sweaty, and instantly changeable. But what a time to be alive. Summer has...
I love sitting here in this big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair. It's in my living room. In my house. Which is on a road where the town guys just put a new sign. It is a sign that has struck terror into the hearts of everybody in the...
A Funny Thing Happened To Me
A funny thing happened to me on the way to this podcast. Actually a bunch of funny things happened this week. Not big belly laugh things, just funny stuff. My Lady Wonder Wench and I were at our favorite diner yesterday, and we both had club...
I was sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in the living room trying to think of what happened in my life this week that you might find interesting, and some of the voices in my head said, "Nothing happened this week."...
Smart Phones & Dumb People
I'm sitting here in my big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room, waiting for my Lady Wonder Wench to call and tell me she's ok. Since her accident a few years ago, I get a little worried about her when the damn phone...
Keep Shining 55+
I saw a sign today that almost dis-connected my batteries. It said, "Senior Living - 55 +". Do they mean in dog years? My pimples were just clearing up when I was 55+. I've seen the sign before, but today for some reason I got this mental picture of a...
