Sharp dressed man

When I was a young man, I paid a lot of attention to the latest styles and trends. In fact, when I was first starting to work and getting paid, I wore loose pleated pants, a stylish shirt with a paisley or colored floral print tie, and a leather jacket and looked like I just... Continue Reading →

Time’s a wastin’

The early bird gets the worm.  Time and tide wait for no man. Time is money.   Time flies. Okay you get the picture. I’m hyper sensitive to wasting time. I’m very much an achiever, I'm restless until I'm able to accomplish something -- both big and small goals -- each day. I need to be... Continue Reading →

Learning my lesson

I guess maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.  Shortly after my wife and I were married, we visited Hawaii. We visited several of the beaches; Diamond Head, the volcanic cone on Oahu; and the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. (I can't recommend enough stopping by the national memorial, especially the USS Arizona, it's a...

My four-legged therapist

Every day, our family dog comes into my office. I call it my office, but it's an extra bedroom where we've set up a desk and my large-screen monitors and I'm able to work remotely in relative peace and quiet. I like to think that Nittany, our 13-year-old Lhasa Apso – Bichon Frise, comes in... Continue Reading →

Life’s little frustrations

As I wrote recently, I was taking the trash to the curb a few weeks ago and noticed a dark spot on the car. I went to take a closer look and saw a long horizontal streak. I grabbed a rag and tried to wipe away the black mark, but it wouldn’t wipe off.  Someone... Continue Reading →

To the person who hit my wife’s car:

To the person who hit my wife’s car: I must admit that we almost missed the damage. Oh, you stinker! Yup, you got us, you surprised us. It took a day or two for us to see where you sideswiped the rear passenger side of our car and drove away without exchanging insurance information, without... Continue Reading →

With lightning speed

With the temperatures heating up, we’ve had number of summer storms lately. A professional photographer in the area caught a picture of a lightning bolt striking a tree.  I’m fascinated by the phenomenon. I suspect because I used to worry as a kid — with a lot of prodding from my jokester, older brothers —... Continue Reading →
