Don't Rush Me

Adrenaline Rush, yeah, that's the ticket!

You know how it is sometimes. You have time to think and your mind will take you on a wonderful odyssey -- ones full of excitement, danger and sometimes even love (which is fraught with so much peril that it is the Number One subject of nearly all books ever published!) Since the end of winter, or maybe the beginning of spring, the thought of siring another child has danced in my imagination....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Your August has arrived, hot!

Bit and pieces of thoughts strung together to give you the 8th month

Days of glory? If I harken back to those thrilling days of yesteryear to when I was as a young man of 14 to 18 years old, it seems to me this week of this month always brought me a fair amount of consternation....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Teen drivers

Your takes on them!

Like every other opined communicator out there in America, I too was gonna' write about the Republican presidential debate which took place ast week. Then I said, "why?" I didn't even watch it -- those who did just wanted to make quick, 140 character snarky remarks for their own amusement....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Facebook to the rescue

Teen driver takes too many risks

All I can say is, "Wow." (Well, that ain't true. If that is all I had to say on the subject I am about to elaborate on, it would be a very short column, indeed.) Holy cow! I saw some of the worst driving ever last week....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Bored into introspection . . .

It's just my job

So, I took off a week from work last week -- one of about nine or 10 single weeks I have taken off in the last 30 years. I had no plans other than to work on This Crappy Old House....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Von der alten Briefkasten

or . . . from the old mailbox

So I'm sitting at my desk, high up (22-steps-to-a-new-you up) in the Ivory Tower of Clarkston last Monday just sitting, minding my own bees wax and plotting my evil plans of inciting a residential uprising (and if you ask city council, trying to tear down Clarkston is all I wanna do with my life) when our front office manager Jodi opens my office door and hands me a brown paper envelope....more >>

Don't Rush Me

The Wordsmith always rings twice

A cacophony of skulduggery sure to cause you consternation whilst you canoodle

For as long as I can remember I have always had a fascination with words. Tis true. Some words I like to hear I enjoy their sound, the way the vibrations tingle my little ear bones....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Do female frogs croak?

Remembering the gameshow Hollywood Squares

I consulted my writing muse and asked for a topic for this week's Don't Rush Me. . . . We batted ideas back and forth. We touched on hot topics like gay marraige, July 4, make the most of life....more >>

Don't Rush Me

Tats, ghosts and puffy, white tennis shoes

First off kids, don't try this at home or for any high school or collegiate paper for which you will be graded. I am a highly trained and 40-hour a week salaried professional. What you are about to witness, if I can pull it off, is a column which weaves three, seemingly unrelated topics into one coherent lettered masterpiece....more >>

Don't Rush Me

As Elvis used to say: A little less conversation, little more . . .

Empathy

Elvis Presley sang a song in the late 1960s for the movie, Live a Little, Love a Little. The song, I believe written by Mac Davis (who also wrote In the Ghetto), was titled A Little Less Conversation....more >>
