It was time to shake up my routine. I decided to take a half-day off to do fun, unusual things my wife would also enjoy. We began by arriving for the Grand Opening ceremony of our little town’s Farmers Market. All the newspaper said was “9am Goat Parade” Continue reading
Did you know the word “quiz” originally meant an odd person? That’s from the Oxford English Dictionary. In the days before the Internet I used to read dictionaries and reference indexes while in residence upon the porcelain throne. Some prefer magazines, I’m told. Continue reading
Like the weather in my region, I’m in a holding pattern. I haven’t felt the need to write much lately. I’m recharging my psychic batteries, reading, dreaming, and waiting for it to get warmer and dryer so I can enjoy more outdoor activities.

I had the good fortune to help restore a truly remarkable film, Giant (1956), a decade ago. It’s full of honest, meaningful glimpses into the contradictions of American life. Continue reading
Archie Roosevelt, with Presidential pet badger Josiah, who bit visitors.
WOO-HOO! It’s OVER! Those suffering from arrested development will continue to whine for a bit if their man or woman didn’t win, but the wisest will progress to more important matters. Like raking leaves, cleaning the gutters, and throwing out those stupid lawn signs. Continue reading
Because Presidential elections follow a week after Halloween, it’s fun to make visual associations between traditional zombies (the walking dead) and politicians (the talking dead). Continue reading
