9/30/2014--Hokey Smokes!

There are some distinct advantages to living on a mountainside. Less noise, fewer people, more in the way of wide open space.

And a front row seat to crazy weather.

As a kid I was scared...

All The Things

Posted 01-04-2014 at 15:38 by spero525

Has it really been almost 2 years? Hmph. Guess life got away from me for a while.

Took a shot at some things.
Some things took a shot at me.
Hoped for change that didn't come.

Restless wandering, directed steps.
Jumped at chances, fell a little.
Prayed for joy in coming home.

Here's to the new year and all the promise of what is to come!

Wow, how long have I had this?
Have I ever used this?
Who gave this to me?
What exactly is in pasta anyway?
Maybe I should try this?

So I did. I spent a couple days reading up on pasta in my here-and-there spare minutes,...

John & Mary

I first encountered this in an English class back in the day. It has remained one of my favorite humor pieces, and right now I'm looking for a little humor.

John & Mary

They were like gazelles who occupied different
grassy plains, running in opposite directions

Tanks for the Memories

Posted 11-25-2011 at 17:49 by spero525

One of the pitfalls of watching Brisco County Jr. is the way puns start to slip into the mind at the most inopportune moment. I'm one of the few people I know who actually likes puns, so this doesn't really bother me. It just bothers a number of others around me.

Oh well. Or should I say, bwha-ha-ha!

I have much to be thankful for this year, and while it may be cliche to write out a bullet-noted list, I tend to live by lists. Then again, sometimes I feel like a walking...
