    Is it just me or what?

I called the store, and asked for the sports […]

    mourning

    Merry Xmas

    The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn’t been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. It was just another day to him.

    Being Taken For Granted

    One of the worst things that can happen to you! – Your friend asks you for help: You oblige her /him once, twice, thrice and before you know it…you are automatically a volunteer in any future projects! – You excel at work: You are productive, highly motivated and outperforming everybody, you will not notice it […]

    A God among Turkeys

    My last TURKEY TROT was last year when I got up off of Paige’s sofa, and trotted into her kitchen for Thanksgiving Turkey. LOL My last official DALLAS TURKEY TROT (8 miles) was way back in 1981. Just did one of them. It was one of my major steps to running marathons. I NEVER started […]

    Blogging

    One word: Content! What do I blog about, or in a more whiny voice: “I cannot find a subject to talk about”…Really Now???
