Mr. Fangs strikes back

Once again we procrastinated regarding our jack-o-lantern, but not content to procrastinate as in Halloweens past, we waited until Halloween day to carve that gourd. Nothing gets you in the spirit of Halloween like driving around town hoping to God to find a store or produce stand that still has pumpkins in stock. Nada. Well, mostly. There was one stand that still had a few. By the way, all the carving kits were sold out too. I had to use a dull steak knife. Does it show?   Read More →

Reminds me of Jocko's (but only a little)

I've finally gotten the site to the point where I can add and edit posts without having to do so directly in the database. What a pain that is. And now that I have the ability, maybe I'll finally get around to writing about our trip to Nashville. But not today. Today is all about White Steamer.   Read More →

A hikin' we a-go

I feel even more behind than usual. Not so much because I haven't posted anything for a couple weeks but because I've actually had things to post and never got around to it. To make up for lost time, I'll start with something a little older: our hiking adventure.   Read More →

All the crap that's fit to post

There's really no delicate way to put any of this, but it's a major medical development in my life, so I felt it bears exploiting explaining. Yes, I've had chronic diarrhea for quite some time, and I finally got around to doing something about it.   Read More →

Who needs cable when you got the ghetto?

Okay, we don't really live in the ghetto, per se, but it's about as close as one gets in this part of the state. Having said that, one of the few perks is the sheer entertainment value our less-than-educated denizens provide. Living on the corner next to a major thoroughfare means we're privy to a high degree of police activity. The accompanying picture is the best of series of photos I took of a car pulled over Friday night, it's occupants patted down, but eventually sent on their way.   Read More →

We will never forget

I was going to write this to accompany today's comic, but this is too important to relegate anywhere but here.   Read More →

How I spent my summer vacation Labor Day weekend

What with the Labor Day weekend and all, we had the oh-so-original notion to take the kids on one last road trip to herald the end of summer. Wanting to travel relatively close to home, Cancun, Hawaii and Disney World were all out. Fortunately, we live within a couple-hour drive of some of the most exciting world-class tourist destinations in the, um, world.   Read More →

Yes, but will it clean my hands?

I've been sick for a bit, so I haven't gotten around to updating in a while. I was kinda worried about what to come back with, so I thought maybe a little humour was in order. Once again, thanks goes to Jason P.   Read More →

Spaghetti sauce, be damned

Okay, this didn't turn out like I thought it would. Frankly, the picture is crap, and it's the best one I could get. Turns out my new camera phone is less than stellar when it comes to close-ups. So what looks like a mosquito bite is actually a marinara burn.   Read More →

Um, whoops

Boy, do I feel sheepish. Here I made all this hullabaloo about getting my blog up and running again, and then I don't post anything. Plus, I said I wasn't going to write anymore about the site itself, yet here I am. Sigh.   Read More →
