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 […]

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 […]

I Think I Now Know How Noah Felt

By · Comments Comments Off on I Think I Now Know How Noah Felt

Looking out the living room window the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage sighed very deeply and said, “When will this stinking rain stop?” I chuckled to myself very carefully not to let it come up to the surface of my face to let on to anybody in the room. She turned around and said to […]

I Fell for It… Again

By · Comments Comments Off on I Fell for It… Again

An old saying more or less defines my life, “What we learn from history is that we don’t learn from history.” When I was younger, I assumed that the older I got, the smarter I would become. I have not achieved that at this point in my life. It gets so tiresome to repeat the […]

Enough Is Enough and I’ve Had Enough

By · Comments Comments Off on Enough Is Enough and I’ve Had Enough

I have had enough of some things. There are, however, some things I can never have enough. Apple fritters and coffee are things I can never have enough of. I would never use the word “enough” with these words. Some things are in this category of “I’ve Had Enough.” Recently, the Gracious Mistress of the […]

The Parsonage Kitchen Shutdown Threat

By · Comments Comments Off on The Parsonage Kitchen Shutdown Threat

A certain situation has been building in the Parsonage for the last several months. At first, I did not think it too serious but alas, we have reached a terrible impasse. It started a few months ago when I came home, walked into the house and was hit in the face so hard I almost […]

Vacation Time Again?

By · Comments Comments Off on Vacation Time Again?

I had just finished my project, sent it to my publisher, took a deep breath and said out loud, “I’m glad that’s done. Now I can rest for a while.” I must have said it aloud for someone in the house heard it. I need to explain that with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, […]

With all the sad news in our country recently, it is about time for some good news. However, the way things are going I am not going to hold my breath. We just finished supper and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I was watching a little bit of television. We like to try […]

A Key On the Table Is Worth Many A Chuckle

By · Comments Comments Off on A Key On the Table Is Worth Many A Chuckle

When it comes to forgetting anything, I am king of the hill. My forgetting has nothing to do with age because I have been forgetting as long as I can remember. Of course, with age comes an excuse for forgetting something. Don’t let anybody know this, but sometimes I use my age to say I […]

What Would We Do without Rain?

By · Comments Comments Off on What Would We Do without Rain?

Sometimes I cannot help being a grouch. I guess it is what happens to a person when they get older. They get older, grouchier and grumpier. With that in mind, I guess I qualify for being an old geezer. The past several weeks I was grouchy about the weather. What else is there to grouch […]

Dealing with Tuesday, the Worst Day of the Week

By · Comments Comments Off on Dealing with Tuesday, the Worst Day of the Week

The worst day of the week for me is Monday. That means that I’m starting a new week and usually I have to start from scratch. All the things around me that annoy me, make me itchy and I have to scratch. I cannot wait until the weekend gets here. It is the weekend where […]

I Enjoy a Mess, Especially Mine

By · Comments Comments Off on I Enjoy a Mess, Especially Mine

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were in a little bit of a tussle this past week. Normally (whoever said I was normal) I stay away from such activity in our very humble domicile. Sometimes it is completely unavoidable. This was one of those times. I was in the study area of our […]

My Somber Longing for Summer

By · Comments Comments Off on My Somber Longing for Summer

My favorite time of the year is summer and I don’t care what the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage says. Summer is what I live for especially here in Florida. As soon as Fall arrives in full steam I am looking forward to summer with uncontrollable anticipation. One thing that attracts me to summer has […]

A healthy dose of medicine for the soul

By · Comments Comments Off on A healthy dose of medicine for the soul

A large segment of the human population takes things way too seriously for their own good. The strange anomaly is that most people laugh at the wrong thing and fail to laugh at the right thing. This serious incongruity has robbed people of a healthy attitude towards life in general. Those who take life too […]

Spring Has Sprung a Leak This Year

By · Comments Comments Off on Spring Has Sprung a Leak This Year

It was in the middle of February during a very shivering cold time that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said most dramatically, “I can’t wait for Spring. When in the world is Spring going to get here?” As a veteran husband, I knew this was not a question for me to ponder or even […]

When I’m beside Myself, I’m in Bad Company

By · Comments Comments Off on When I’m beside Myself, I’m in Bad Company

In the beginning of the week the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said, “On Thursday the girls and I will be going to St. Augustine for the day to visit thrift shops.” It was spring break and so the girls did not have school. It was the perfect opportunity for an outing for them. “Do […]
