Don't Rush Me

Fall is when my fashion senses slay!

Women swoon when they see me struttin' down the street . . . ahem . . .

It must be genetic. There has to be something in my Deoxyribonucleic acid that makes me such an expert. My blue-collar dad was always fussy about how his clothes fit. The buttons on his shirt had to line up with his belt buckle and zipper on his trousers....more >>

Well now . . . maybe this is why my knees hurt!

"Don't do drugs . . . and don't jump off the garage roof."

For the past -- oh, three, four or five months my knees have hurt. First one, the right, then the other (which, if you're keep track, would be the left). And, well, it kinda bums me out, because I had started walking like four days a week and was getting really good at it! I tried not to say anything about it, but then a local gal who was educated and worked for a while as a Kinesiologist noticed my gait and brought it to my attention....more >>

Evoking the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, '16

Multicolored and whimsical clown cars twirl about, zigging and zagging pounding the walls inside my skull; piped in between my ears, circus music swirls around, skimming across the fast becoming smoother ridges of the glob of goo that once was my gray matter....more >>

Dufus is as Dufus does so don't be a dufus driver

Watch out for school buses!

"I am embarrassed," the woman on the other end of my office phone told me . . . and then she told me her concerns. Hmm? Well damn. * * * I will be the first to admit when the school bells commence to ring, announcing the start of a new school year, I feel a little sad....more >>

Hot damn! I got a stye in my eye!

" . . . I was under the firm belief I had that most dreaded of ocular sicknesses, PINK EYE."

Hey, it's Labor Day weekend and I wanna' take a break . . . so here is an oldie but a goodie from 2004. Read, smile and I hope, enjoy. -- DPR * * * Sept. 1, 2004 -- Last week I got some great news....more >>

Donny Morning Glory Seed spreads the love

They're like, far out, man.

Don't know what it is about this time of the year, but every year oh, for the last 15 years or so, the end of August, through the rest of fall, I pick to sew later, seeds. I like collecting and drying peas and beans and tomato seeds for next year's garden....more >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>
