I am convinced that somewhere near here there is a dedicated group of women who call themselves the Fed Up Females Federation of America. And I am sure that it is that group which is responsible for the doll by the name of Mr. Wonderful. Mr. Wonderful...
It's Christmas Time Again
It's really here. And the "Kid" in all of us gets to pop out and say WOW!. There's the best version of The First Noel ever recorded on this podcast, and the end of the podcast is a story I told you last year...and you sent me lots of Merry Christmas...
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...
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...
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...
Looks like Louie has done it again. I'm sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living room, and I just got a note from Big Louie. He said I should tell you to "If things are tough, let a smile be your umbrella,...
Sing Along New Year
You think about "Once upon a times" when a new year pops up on the calendar. Once upon a time. For lots of people 1999 was a long time ago. That's the year our 15 year old high school kids were born. How did you get along way back then without your...
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...
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 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...
I Love A Parade
Life is a parade, not a stage show. I've been sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living room watching the parade for quite a while. As a matter of fact, I still get up and do a little marching in the parade...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Prepared To Take Chances
There are those who would say that I am sitting here in my big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair doing nothing. Ha. I am constantly doing the very stressful thing that is the obligation of all real men. As I have explained in my book,...
A Christmas Love You
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...
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 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...
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...
