What I do for you

Do you know how much I love you people? In 2004 my family watched the Sox win the world series from Walt Disney World. So we decided to do our part and go to WDW again so that the Sox could win the Series again this year. I am a giver. I forgot my phone […]

Trick or Treat Rundown

Okay, we won’t be giving away Junior Mints because we bought them too early and ate them all. We’re only human, you know. We tried to buy something Mr. Dump doesn’t like so that they’d stand a chance of lasting until the 31st, which meant Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats were right out. How […]

Life looks pretty bleak when you think about the mealy, orange tomatoes we’ll be forced to endure, instead of the huge, juicy, deep […]

Weather or Not, Here I Come

I like living in a non_parched and barren landscape as much as the next guy, but after a week of drizzle, I was DONE with it. If it’s going to rain, it should rain and be done with it. The endless misty drizzle just sucks. It’s not raining hard enough to use an umbrella, but […]

Back to Our Show

Sorry, server problem followed up with user error. I think I’m all set now. You can let me know if I’m not. You always do. Television recommendation: If you aren’t watching “Reaper” on the CW network (around these parts I think that’s what used to be Channel 56). Best. Show. On. TV. If Ray Wise […]

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeep!

You know, it’s nice to sweep. It’s nice to be the team sweeping, not the team being swept.
