I Miss My Good Friend, Tom Foolery

By · Comments Comments Off on I Miss My Good Friend, Tom Foolery

This past week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were having a conversation. Of course, it was more like a monologue, but you know how that works. We were thinking back over the years of our life together and reminding ourselves of some of the great and wonderful times we have had. The […]

Have Mouth, Will Stutter

By · Comments Comments Off on Have Mouth, Will Stutter

I pride myself with the ability to express myself with the proper wording. I enjoy words and seeing how they relate one to another. Unfortunately, it has not always the case. I have found through the years that I have developed quite the art of stuttering. It happens at the most inconvenient moments. It is […]

Now, Do You Feel like a Big Boy?

By · Comments Comments Off on Now, Do You Feel like a Big Boy?

Vacations mean different things to different people. For me, the vacation means I am vacating one place and going to another place to do nothing. Recently, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me vacated the parsonage to go to some place where we could major on doing nothing. We have mastered this over the […]

The end of all nonsense and other practical jokes

By · Comments Comments Off on The end of all nonsense and other practical jokes

When it comes to practical jokes, Yours Truly is always on the ready. Throughout my earthly passage, I have perpetuated my share of practical jokes. I will not enumerate them here, the simple reason being, I might want to bring one out of retirement. I must say that most practical jokes are neither practical nor […]

Why childhood is better the second time around

By · Comments Comments Off on Why childhood is better the second time around

This week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly had the privilege of attending our youngest granddaughter’s second birthday party. I wanted to go to her third birthday party but she was not old enough yet. So, I will have to wait another year. On the way home we sat in silence thinking […]

It Was An Apple Fritter Kind Of Week

By · Comments Comments Off on It Was An Apple Fritter Kind Of Week

Have you ever had a week where everything went exactly as planned? Neither have I. Every week I start out believing this week is going to be different from all the other weeks of my life. If this has ever occurred, I cannot recall it. Take last week, please! I start every week about the […]

I Thought but Then I Unthought

By · Comments Comments Off on I Thought but Then I Unthought

Looking back over my life I honestly can say, giving it a great deal of thought, the biggest problem I have is when I actually think. Thinking can get me into more trouble than anything else I do. This was no more evident than recently we got a phone call from the bank. I hate […]

Items not on my New Year’s resolution list

By · Comments Comments Off on Items not on my New Year’s resolution list

It is typical this time of year to prepare a list of resolutions for the coming year. I believe this goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden when Adam said to Eve, “I think I’ll turn over a new leaf this year.” And so the tradition has come down to us today. […]

Be Sure Your Grin Will Find You Out

By · Comments Comments Off on Be Sure Your Grin Will Find You Out

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and I appreciate it so very much. I recognize I’m difficult to purchase presents for because I have my books, my pens, what else do I really need? Once in a while I get a Christmas present to beat all Christmas presents. This year was one of […]

Not Everything in Life Is Automatic

By · Comments Comments Off on Not Everything in Life Is Automatic

Two days in the year I don’t like. Somebody is thinking it is my wife’s birthday and our wedding anniversary. I worked that out a long time ago. My birthday is two days before the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and our anniversary is three weeks after our birthday. No way can I forget that. […]

Is it a fragrance or a stench?

By · Comments Comments Off on Is it a fragrance or a stench?

This past week I had to go to the mall. I know, I should know better, but I thought I could sneak in, get what I needed and sneak out again. So much for my thoughts. I wanted to purchase several tie chains for my neckties and searched every jewelry store and nobody had them. […]

Here’s My Hammer If You Need It

By · Comments Comments Off on Here’s My Hammer If You Need It

I am not known as “Mr. Fix-It Man”. When it comes to mechanical things, I am really handy-challenged. I can do many things, but I cannot fix anything. When talking about the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, it is a different story. If there is something she cannot fix then it isn’t broken. No matter […]

Financial Tip Of The Week: Pay Attention

By · Comments Comments Off on Financial Tip Of The Week: Pay Attention

Enjoying a casual evening at home, reclining in my favorite easy chair reading, while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was chatting on the telephone. I seldom pay attention to phone conversations. After all, I only get one side of the conversation, which may be misleading at the very best. I’ve been caught in that […]

Where’s Sherlock Holmes When You Need Him?

By · Comments Comments Off on Where’s Sherlock Holmes When You Need Him?

I, like so many people, love a good mystery. I have read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories, the Father Brown stories and other good mystery novels. I just like trying to solve a good mystery. A good mystery does not reveal the mystery until the very end. All the way through the story, importance […]

How to Live with a Veggie-Holic

By · Comments Comments Off on How to Live with a Veggie-Holic

In our house, not many conflicts expose themselves. For the most part, it is a very quiet and serene home occupied by two lovebirds. I am not saying we are perfect. For we are not. The imperfect side of this marvelous relationship is Yours Truly. I was born imperfect and I have honored my birthright […]

Slow Is Just the Way I Go

By · Comments Comments Off on Slow Is Just the Way I Go

One of the main complaints in the Parsonage has to do with my procrastination. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage often refers to me as, Sir Procrastinator, as if it was a bad thing. Anything that needs doing in our house, my wife is the first one to jump up and try to do it. […]

Laughter in Any Other Language Is Just Not Funny

By · Comments Comments Off on Laughter in Any Other Language Is Just Not Funny

When I was in high school, I played on the volleyball team. During one practice session, I forgot to bring my sneakers. Not thinking much of it, I just played anyway. During the practice, I stepped forward to protect the player on the front line and when he jumped, he came down on my right […]

If It Wasn’t for Bad Luck

By · Comments Comments Off on If It Wasn’t for Bad Luck

I am not the kind of person that dabbles in luck. [Knock on wood.] When something looks like a good gamble to me, I run from it as fast as I can. If it looks too good to be true, believe me, it probably is not true. Luck has never been a friend of mine. […]

Hallelujah, It IS a Scam

By · Comments Comments Off on Hallelujah, It IS a Scam

I know I am not the sharpest pencil in the drawer, or the brightest bulb on the porch, and a few bricks shy of a load. However, my philosophy is simple, if you know what you are not, then you can soon figure out what you really are. If somebody can’t con me, they can’t […]

I Never Thought I Could

By · Comments Comments Off on I Never Thought I Could

As a person gets older things change. By things, I am referring to my body. When I was young, I never gave a thought to what it would be like when I got old. I was too busy enjoying my being young. What young person wants to waste their time thinking about what they are […]
