"If you can't say something nice…."

I don’t know how many of you have seen the Disney cartoon Bambi to the point where you can recall Thumper being prompted by his mom to recite the above title. I can. I can vividly see the little bunny looking quite contrite repeating something that he had (obviously) been told over and over again. […]

Nap well, sweet prince

As you lay there, with your head on my tummy, I tell you “one moe time” the story of the three little pigs. Your blue eyes burn into mine and I cherish this moment. I wonder how long it will be until you are too old to use daddy’s tummy as a pillow and no […]

Won't you be my neighbor?

One and a half years ago, I past the birthday many of us dread the most. 40. Yup. According to myself and many of the kids I went to school with, I’m ancient. Heck, as a kid, a friend and I swore we’d never live past 35. Guess we were wrong. Growing up in the […]

Groundhogs and their shadows

Don’t feel great tonight. Been a long not so great day. For some reason this poem I wrote about 20 years ago came to mind. Well poem is too kind. Anyway, since I didn’t start blogging until after groundhogs day, here it is. Groundhog’s Day When monkies fly, and green blood flows, and fluff lives […]

How are you feeling?

Earlier tonight I was talking with my wife and I had an epiphany. I, like everyone else, have of course heard the old stereotype that men are more logical and ladies are more emotional. Although I have seen the reverse of this true on more than one ocassion, most people I know, of both sexes, […]
