Over the Thanksgiving holiday I flew back to Texas to retrieve my late father in-law’s truck along with some assorted other items. The drive back home could have gone a little smoother…(more…)
When it rains it pours. Barely 2 days after getting home from the hospital from our last adventure, I had to rush our dog to the emergency vet not once, but twice in two days.
I also offer my less than stellar thoughts on “Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin” on Paramount+.
No news this week. Just telling the long complicated story of how my son broke his arm this week and the days long process of getting him patched up. From a tumble in taekwondo class, to visiting two separate emergency rooms, to finally needing surgery to get everything put back together, it was a very long couple of days.

Another week of sounding different, but this time I think it’s from my new allergy meds. And in typical “me” style, I have a really long meandering story about our latest camping trip, getting lost hiking multiple times, and being sick that technically does relate to that first point. Speaking of lost in the woods, my one news story is about a criminal who did just that, and ended up needing a police rescue.
I discuss the installation of our new solar panel system, provide a garden update including another round trimming the mesquite, I give my super lazy fried chicken recipe, and share my feelings after seeing Hamilton! live. All that, and I totally left stuff off for time!!
Another one of my boys knocked out a couple of his teeth. At least they were baby teeth this time.
My garden is pretty empty other than a mantis that I relocated to my strawberry patch.
And I give you a couple really simple recipes for caramel iced coffee, and my grilled chicken alfredo. (Give me some time and I’ll try to get them written down somewhere.)
It’s been a few weeks, but I’m back. What have I been doing this whole time? Working mostly. Lots of looooonnnnng nights at work. And I got some new toys to “play” with including a steam cleaner, a wood chipper, and a pressure washer. But even with that stuff, it’s still really just one form of work or another.
I don’t even know what happened this week.
I started out talking about my boys being in Summer school and playing games. I sidetracked into playing sports in school when I was a kid. Veered into teaching my boys taekwondo. I also taught them about how mosquitos spread malaria via a very odd ice cream metaphor. I realized that beyond potty training, nobody teaches you squat about parenting. And I think I landed on an existential crisis. I’m sorry if I broke your brain trying to follow this.
Somehow I managed to do a shorter show than usual by knowing what I was going to talk about. How the hell does that work? I explain the significance of llama shaped marshmallows as a sign of a return to normalcy in the world. My AC went out just before the summer really got rolling in. And I bring back “BS From The News” with counterfeit Vaseline, weaponized pizza, and the revelation that, shocker, Nestle food apparently isn’t good for you.
