I wrote with my friends. Almost everyone did. Sometimes I wrote too much. Sometimes, others did. I liked to write. I still like to write. But I did not write to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone. There is a bright line between writing, which I gladly do, and which I fully embrace, and sexually assaulting someone, which is a violent crime.

We wrote too much. We liked to write. You know, we... whatever the chart says, a word/page count chart.

I sit around the Fortress of Chuckles, sipping a beer and listening to Doffen Dave (on Zoom) talk about the business that could have been but was lost mostly due to the fact that no one was very ...

Jumping strays in Captured thoughts

I have a little note keeping app on my phone. Who doesn’t? And I like to capture stray thoughts as they linger and I lounge around in bed or by the pool, sometimes out for a stroll. Sometimes I r...


If they ever name a street after me it’ll have to be either one way or a dead end. I live next to a police officer and he lives next to a parole officer. That makes me either a criminal, or the M...

the Pizzalater in Captured thoughts

I spend another weekend riding on the No Drama Llama, the Keep Cool Mule, no problem for an old Rodeo Clown like me, floating around in the pool on the No Fail Whale with a vodka drink nearby, I...


I order online and then go up to High St and picked up some essential oils, in this case they are a small bottle of 100%CBD oil and one of 50/50 mix of THC/CBD. I like oils. I like them a lot. Th...

troll treats in Captured thoughts

I tend to overdue it. Somedays more than others. I’m not going to write about that again. Clean up your act or just accept what you are. I can accept who I am. I am a reluctant member of society...


I hate it when people tell me to stay safe. “Stay silly”, I want to say back. Filtration Nation — a good name for a water store I’m wasting my time. I stepped back from the stuff that I usual...

bubbling grey in Captured thoughts

Anyone who trips on the sidewalk can be a comic genius. Most of us miss this opportunity. Crustacean nation! A good name for a seafood place. Deception by omission is like aggression by passi...


Whoa mid-month. The time has gone. The braincells are discombobulated. Away on vacation. Coming back like donkeys on a Greek island, early in the morning after the bars have closed. I’ve certain...


I’m starting to like camping, not that this is camping. I’m not setting up a tent or blowing up an air mattress. I’m just pulling up or backing into somewhat level ground, gravel or pavement. And...


We boondock at Big Tiddy Beach on the outskirts of the county seat of government, a town with grain elevators and bridges and waterfalls on the way in and around. It was Plan B as Plan A did in f...

11, 12 in Morning Stream

I threw my longboard in the RV and then later on impulse, turned into the park parking lot and went down that big hill. I haven’t spent anytime on the longboard the summer so when the board start...

skin and brains in 1% better

I can handle honesty. I have a thick skin. I accept honesty rationally. I simply don’t have a lot of compassion. And, I’m ok with that. For me relationships are transactional, but in the best po...

Simple is best in 1% better

Simplicity is better than ease (or easiness). Ease implies that you have to do something, ease is an action whereas simplicity just is. Simplicity is a quality. Honesty is better than truth for ...

My undroned life in 1% better

Your opinions don’t matter to me, certainly not enough to argue over. I find it easy to avoid things I don’t like. I just look away. I cross the street. I change the channel. I don’t get drawn i...

Manhunt in Long story, short

I put my bike in the back of the RV and drive down to Milltown. I have a trailer for the goat rodeo that I have to look at and then I want to ride along the old railway line. It’s raining hard l...


Some old friends dropped over yesterday afternoon. They called first and said they were coming, inviting themselves over for a chat. I was sitting by the pool with a book and a beer. Virgil Flowe...

8. 9. 10. in Morning Stream

I’m glad I got married before the internet took over dating. I can’t imagine putting myself out there online with my photo, what I like and dislike and facing constant rejection, meeting weirdos ...


It takes me more than a month to hitchhike up the coast from Singapore to Kelantan, not because I can’t get rides. I get a lot of rides, short rides, rides mostly from rich Indians and Chinese, n...

6. 7. in Morning Stream

Without hurting myself any further, I finish the shed roof project. I did an amateur job. I can’t think of anything that I ever did an expert job at the first time, so I’m satisfied. It won’t lea...


Just like when you mix water with dirty water you get dirty water, when you mix science with politics, you get politics. How many days till this is over? How many days till November? I’m not even...

There is a saying I like: “If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole.” ― Raylan Givens. I had a boss about 15 years ...

4. 5. in Morning Stream

I took another tumble yesterday, second time this summer that I’ve landed on my back. The first time was because of muddy shoes and a big step onto a row of landscaping rocks, next thing I was on...

1. 2. 3. in Morning Stream

The dog was acting weird last night. Normally she just sleeps and sleeps. Since we moved down into the basement apartment, she’s been sleeping with us. She got up and started walking around, ba...

Chill in Morning Stream

I disagree with most of the stuff in most of the sales books I’ve read. And I’ve read a lot of them, going back about thirty years. I’m hard on most sales people if I see them going into their p...
