Saint Stevie

When in doubt? Can never go wrong, knee-deep in the blues… Here, in Texas? Quote SRV: Well there's floodin' down in Texas All of the telephone lines are down Well there's floodin' down in Texas All of the telephone lines are down And I've been tryin' to call my baby Lord and I can't get […] read more

News and Grammar

Recent news piece, vetted, edited, I’ll assume, and fact-checked to corroborate details, sure. Too bad the grammar sucked. Couple of dangling modifiers, and items with no subject. Hard to be objective when I find that in a staunchly, rigorously marketed news outlet that I supposed to be, “Nothing but the facts, impartially delivered.” Sound like […] read more

Ruffian’s Misfortune

Ray Wylie Hubbard, Scorpio, I’ve used him as an example in horoscopes, on more than one occasion. Famous for a tune, according to lore, he wrote in a blackout drunk, he continues to hone his craft.

Coffee Maker Memories

Weird how this kind of material percolates to the top of the brain, unbiden thoughts that surface after so many years dormant. Coffee Maker Memories The first part is two-fold, and previously, I’ve written it elsewhere, I think. It was either a ‘Tom Thumb’ or Safeway, but I think, ‘Tom Thumb.’ It was 8-O’Clock coffee, […] read more

Lemons and Limes

The equations of profit and loss, metrics, and relative success. Prompted by this article, with a hook that caught me, “I owned a bar,” I had to stop, briefly, and consider. However, for me, it’s more Lemons and Limes as pieces of the greater picture. I happen to love my “Day Job,” with all its […] read more
