Officially Saturday. Friend arrives but we acquiesced to Wife’s desire to watch The Blacksmith and The Devil instead of just launching in to watching Anime. As I was getting ready for bed, I joke...

Cyder Spyder Fyder

Honestly, pay no attention to the title. Just threw up words with silly spelling. It is rare for me to not have a title AND not have a reason for a title. My life is surrounded by constructio...

Ow

Ow. After work blew up in my face last night; Wife and I went to the gym. Where I decided that… since I’ve hit my plateau weight and seem to simply be jumping around from 218 to 223… I should in...


Harvey Dent, Harvey Two Face, Harvey “Apollo” Dent, etc. was first introduced in Detective Comics #66 (August 1942) and was created, as most of the truly great Batman characters were, by Bob Kane...


It’s funny. It being a Monday, I assumed I’d be so swamped with Juvenile Court Issues that I wouldn’t be writing at all today! However, when I sat down… I reviewed my calendar and… Great Caesar...

Open Articles

So, this likely to be the deeply edited version of this shared with the Public Space because… that’s just something I’d do. Due to the sensitivities of my job, sometimes there are things I must ...

Rumination

If you wish to know my feelings on the hot button political topic of the day, read one entry prior. If you’re looking for a TL;DR version: Alabama is a state that has consistently defunded schoo...


So… Sunday Night/Monday morning: My dream was a detailed political debate using real life examples from news and policy discussions. Last night? My dream was a detailed Classics debate about the...

So there's that

At some point in the middle of the night, the lightning raging outside definitely got to Nala. She was pacing the room and kept trying to jump up on the bed; so I picked her up and set her betwe...

2.3 Second Work Entry

Wow! So… today I was in demand. After a sentencing hearing, I had a thirty minute meeting about Child Rape because… holy shit have those numbers skyrocketed for us around here! During that meetin...

AMA Answers and More

This is going to answer the Ask Me Anything Questions (something I encourage people to do at any time; but it is always good to remind people.) Obviously, after that… I’ll likely keep writing an...

Not that I am surprised but … obviously I am very disappointed. Today was our Mother’s Day celebration. Wife, Puppy. and I at Ames with Brother. Niece, SIL, Bro’s bff, my parents and SIL’s paren...


So… on Friday morning, I was rebelling against waking up. Didn’t want to do it. Knew that it would be a better use of my time to sleep. Sleeping in bed would be better for me and everyone I en...

FULL PUBLIC AMA

O. M. G. I don’t know why… but today is feeling like the bloody longest day ever. Therefore… to prevent me from just rambling nonsensically here for hours and hours (about the sweet and the sour...


So, my last entry discussed some of the difficulties of crafting laws. Like how you want to write a law that says, “Electric Scooters shouldn’t be on Highways” but you don’t want that law to som...


Today is going to, almost certainly, be a day where I just talk into the void. Enjoy the rambling, possibly incoherent, perhaps creative, and completely random words I am typing into this comput...

Because

Don’t ask why… just feel like posting random stuff from Chive with or without commentary: Text Shared With This Picture: You don’t know if there is a secret everybody knows except you. ...

When It Rains

It has been raining a lot. I mean… Spring and what all, so of course it has. But it is something I get to hear about a lot as Wife wants to burn all the leaves that the previous homeowner just…...


We had so many kid cases yesterday that I was at work for an extra hour. And still had to postpone all of my work that was not directly related to Child Welfare. Meaning… the guy threatening pe...

Kids Day

I appreciate the readership and notes! I will try to respond to as much as I can; but also… today is a Juvenile Court Day. That means 12 hearings/trials today to get through in 7 hours. So… it...

F.O. Number 2

Okay, folks… I wrote a Friends Only Entry this morning because I needed to discuss a case. Because I’m super not happy that people in Iowa can say “I was drunk” or “I’m taking medication” and th...


This is even more a Non-Entry than ever as I don’t even feel like writing today. But I’ll keep this page up in case something comes to me. Or something happens. Which is almost certain to mean ...

Poor Start

Today got off to a poor start. Woke up at 4 and felt like something had attacked my tongue! Maybe it is an inflamed taste bud, maybe I chomped it hard in my sleep. I don’t know. It certainly w...

May: Resolution Check

I hope but cannot promise that at the beginning of each month, I will review my Yearly Resolutions and chart where I am. It is another way of keeping me honest, keeping me focused, and hopefully...


Book Description

This will now be my sixth year writing in Prosebox. I started as a Law Student considering Divorce… and now I’m a Government Attorney who owns a house going to marriage counseling. After 6 consecutive years of “Looking for something new or better” this year, I’m just trying to hold on to what I’ve got. I like my job. I like my community. I like my house. I’m just trying to hold on to all of it and make sure I keep things going.
