Bicyclists and frogs, get out the way!

Hey, it’s been 10 years since I wrote this “gem” of a column. While I take a breather, enjoy this Don’t Rush Me column, originally published June 30, 2010. *** So, I finally started reading the book, A Walk In The Woods, by Bill Bryson. Folks have been after me to read it for years […]

You can’t please ‘em all, folks.

You can’t please ‘em all, folks.

Times, they are a changing. Change in inevitable. Change is good. Change sucks. One thing is for certain, change will touch all of us — some of us will welcome it with open arms, others will go down kicking and fighting. * * * Random Thought Number One: Do you think the Russians are laughing […]

Pillow fights and eating the weak.

Pillow fights and eating the weak.

There is sooo much going on. And, I just want to go and hide. Let all the kids fight it out and live my live in a cabin in the woods. I don’t want to write about protesting, protestor nor of protests — if only because everyone else is. I like like being a contrarian. […]

Stupid COVID & social distancing

Stupid COVID & social distancing

If you step back and objectively look at it, this really has been a fascinating year. I think the word “unprecedented” is the one folks are bandying about.

My body was shocked when, during a beautiful day that was Saturday — sunny, blue skied and near 70 degrees — I decided to do yard work. The wood […]

What I did on my Covid vacation

Wow. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to sit down and write a Don’t Rush Me column. I penned the last on Monday, March 31 — a couple of days after I was officially laid off from work. Forty-one days. This was basically the first time in my life in which I wasn’t […]

April 1st, no-fooling.

April 1st, no-fooling.

Stupid Coronavirus. It’s kinda’ put a damper on having fun. Since the beginning of 2020, I had planned on this column, to be published on April 1. I had a plan to quote the township supervisor on some sort of prank story. Running through my head were stories on Michigan locating a prison in town, […]

Meanwhile, back in the e-world

Meanwhile, back in the e-world

It’s nice to know during the situation we all find ourselves in, that somethings can still be counted on. One, most folks are good folks. Living in a smaller community is a choice, and usually a good one because of neighbors helping neighbors. Be one of those good neighbors. Two, I am gonna’ get e-mails […]
