Days Gone By

I went there the other day

The country road is paved

There’s even a traffic light near the corner store

I pulled in our drive

Ruts rattled my car

I thought of the times we had

Most good

Can’t remember any bad

I stood in the yard

Conspiracy Theory or Just Food for Thought?

Okay. This is a little bit out there. Food for thought? A conspiracy theory? I don’t know. Maybe I just need to finish constructing my tin foil hat.

Bear with me and see if you can follow my train of thought. And if you think that train has a good…


Yes, I really did see an Unidentified Flying Object

Every afternoon between 4 and 5 P.M. my dog, Silver, and I sit in the shade in the front yard of our apartment building. We breathe fresh air, relax, and de-stress from the day’s activities.

I do not like the…


Dreams, Dementia, and Death.

My dad came to visit me last night. But it’s probably not what you think.
