Holding It Together While Thinking About The Ending To My Story

I would have never done it, but isn’t that what they all say. It probably goes without saying that waking for the day at 2:37, 3:14, or 3:51 in the morning, every morning and in excruciating pain at that, has a myriad of only negative consequences on a person. The […]

Spoiled Rotten on the Snake River

I didn’t have my first taste of BBQ until my late 20s. Throughout the next decade there would be occasions where I would offer up this curious nugget from my culinary back story to various people in mixed company. There was always a natural lead-in, I’m not that random (although […]

A $40,000 Headrest (or Why I Love the 2016 Kia Sorento SXL)

Aside from the decision whether or not to plunk down, say, $1200 for a Sleep Number, Simmons, Serta or another brand of mattress invariably beginning with the letter ‘S’ after lying horizontal while fully clothed, sneakers on, for a period of time not greater than 23 seconds, is anything more […]
