Thanks Graham

April 8, 2020

My good and much younger friend Graham shared an interesting idea this morning. He said that, as we age, it’s a good idea to try to wash one foot at a time in the shower. Just lift up the foot as high as you’re able whilst balancing on the other. A very young cowboy decided […]

An old homestead

April 7, 2020

Yesterday, a very young at heart cowboy decided to find a couple of bass lakes near Chatfield Lake. It turned out to be quite an adventure and one my legs won’t soon forget. En route to the lakes, I came across an old abandoned cabin and peeked inside. It was so old that it looked […]

Corona

April 2, 2020

Experts have been reporting that pets are not at risk in this Coronavirus pandemic. Levi and Bart arrived yesterday for a three day stay as their owners are volunteering at a Colorado Springs food bank. I could be wrong but it sure seems they are aware that something is not right.

Pandemic reaction

Cabin Fever is manifested in a variety of ways. Some healthy and others prompting a call to Dr. Phil or one with similar abilities.

The lady’s name above has gone out of favor but let me know if anyone has a relative named Myrtle. Yeppers…Myrtle Young visited with Johnny Carson years ago and the 3 minute video is priceless. Just do a search of Johnny Carson and Potato Chip Trick.

Never alone

March 27, 2020

There were five couples practicing social distancing as they spoke from the edge of their driveways. They had determined that their cul de sac had 13 children ten years or younger. What was in question was who had written the statement above on the sidewalk. Not one child spoke up and the parents were flummoxed. […]

Hole Wheat Bread

March 27, 2020

My good friend Kevin Nydam of Thrive Realty has been telling me for years that one of the secrets to losing weight is to cut out bread from your diet. Well…it seems he has conspired with my dear wife and the bakers at Izzio Artisan Bakery to assist in this weight reduction program. Either that […]

‘Father, forgive me…my last confession was the day before The Astros cheating scandal became public. I now confess that I was aware of their shenanigans and made over $2 million in illegal betting. With the Coronavirus, I’m out of a job and beseech thee to forgive me and I promise to give to the poor […]

Prayer

February 11, 2020

Pastor Doug related this story on Sunday. A missionary was in Africa serving the poorest of the poor. He was running low on medical and other supplies and embarked on a two day trip to the nearest village on a rickety bicycle. When he arrived, he witnessed two teenagers fighting and stepped in to break […]

I’m so glad the library called yesterday to advise that a book I’d ordered had arrived. Sally and her friends were watching a recorded show of The Bachelor and it was obvious it was time for me to abandon ship. How did I know? Well…when the word ‘like’ is used an average of 3 times […]

Payback is hell. Hey Adam…John Bolton is available if you want to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Ukrainian hacking of the Iowa caucus. Maybe Comey, Brennan, and Clapper can join before they go before the grand jury.

This may turn out to be the picture of the year. Accompanied by glimpses of ultra glum Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler whose charade ends today, how entertaining to watch crazy Nancy squirm for ninety minutes as the president highlighted accomplishments of the last three years and set the tone for his re-election. It was […]

The odds are increasing that this fella is going to be questioned again. A grand jury will surely be convened and he’ll be asked again if he believed the information in The Clinton paid for, bogus, Steele dossier was verified when he said so to the FISA court. Since he lied under oath in previous […]
