Curmudgeon Corner - Poke In the Eye?

My Thoughts for January 25, 2015

Well, now House Speaker John Boehner has an ally in the Senate, namely Mitch McConnell, the new Senate Majority Leader to help him belittle and make the President look less presidential.  Neither republican likes the idea of the President taking credit for the country’s rebounding economy or the fact that he claimed credit for the millions of new jobs added to the work force.  Well, it’s a fact Speaker Boehner and it should be noted that trickle-down…

Curmudgeon Corner - Tolerance, The Key

My Thoughts for January 18, 2015

For this ole curmudgeon, the key to a more successful world is tolerance.  In addition to having the ability to endure physical pain (like a Navy Seal or Aaron Rogers, Green Bay Quarterback) it is also a willingness to live with customs, habits, or beliefs that are different than your own.  In this world of instant communication, tolerance is a key to calm living.  Try it, you might like it.

Tolerance will make for a better 2015, not that I…

Curmudgeon Corner - Resolved To Do

My Thoughts for January 11, 2015  

Here’s the first bitter reality for the New Year.  We are on the backside of those New Year’s resolutions we all endeavor to make in the days before New Year’s Eve.   Now is the time when we begin what we resolved to do: lose weight; quit smoking; drink less; and, the one I like the best, to join a gym and get into shape. 

I resolved to join a gym and get these joints and muscles back to where they were twenty years ago.  And, I had a plan. …

Curmudgeon Corner - Change, The Only Constant

My Thoughts for January 4, 2015

Well, we’re four days into the New Year and already I’m grouchy.  Why, you ask?   Because they changed my favorite restaurant into a place that reminds me of Famous Dave’s, the worst restaurant I’ve ever had to go in.  Besides, I don’t like change.  Why can’t they leave things alone? At least until I expire. Here’s what’s happening in my world.

My favorite restaurant, Red Robin, tore down their old restaurant and rebuilt a new one in the same…

Curmudgeon Corner - The Great Sony Hoax

My thoughts for December 28, 2014

Where did it all go so fast; 2014 that is?  It was just January, now it’s the end of the year.  Many events have taken place.  We have lost a lot of good people, and football has been as exciting as ever.  Just today my beloved Seattle Seahawks beat the Saint Louis Rams in an exciting game.  Did my ole heart a lot of good. 

Some memorable events for the year were the loss of Malaysia Flight 370, enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing,…

Curmudgeon Corner - Standing for the Right Thing

For December 21, 2014

When I was young and foolish many, many years ago I got a hand full of Cuban cigars.  Those of you familiar with Cuban cigars, therefore know, I got a hold of one of those big babies.  Yep, thought I was hot stuff.  Pulled out a blow torch and lit the darn thing. Showed everyone what it was to be a man. Fifteen minutes later, I was totally sick to my stomach, puking whatever it was I ate for dinner. 

So, you see, if I don’t seem excited about the…

Curmudgeon Corner -Holiday Season

For December 14, 2014

Hey, that time of year is here again.  A time of year when we put Ferguson, EITs, and choke holds aside and extend goodwill (goodwill: a kind, helpful, or friendly feeling or attitude.) to everyone.   Yep, I’m talking about the Christmas Season.  Oops, I mean the Holiday Season.  By saying “Holiday Season” I’m showing goodwill towards everyone.  It’s politically correct to say “Holiday Season” and we all know how politically correct our political leaders…
