August 16, 2011

   With every passing year, I find that my perspective on life matures and tend to notice the differences between Gen X’ers  and the ones who have come after us, our children. Issues such as faith, family, politics, race, and relationships are viewed differently by the Gen Y crowd, also referred to in some circles as the Millennial […]

Mr. Man, Mocha Dad, & The Chicken

March 22, 2011

Note: My teenaged daughter reads my blog. She is actually a fan of sorts. She recently asked me about this story idea, a memory, actually, and when would I write about it. Shout out to Bae for making me “pee and get off the pot” on this one. My grandmother died in the summer of 1980. […]

Neglected Lover

March 18, 2011

Continuing on with the drudgery of things that must be done, I lament a lover who has been neglected for far too long. I am amazed at her patience with me. That she even puts up with the lack of attention that she as gotten from me lately. Yet, she’s always there when I return. Waiting. Patiently. […]

Mommy, I Don’t Have To Pee. Really.

August 17, 2010

  The drive from Orlando back to that’s Houston was relatively uneventful. A clear and sunny day, we drove a few hours (like 16 hours) with a few stops in between. After a great vacation, I was stopped by Florida’s finest. I guess I thought I was Dale Ernhardt Jr. the way I was moving. […]

All Roads Lead To Walmart

July 27, 2010

  Walmart can never complain about not owning enough acreage in the continental U.S. It seems as though there is one on every corner of every neighborhood.
