One more plug for shovels…

One more plug for shovels…

Nobody works harder than mail carriers. I’ve never met one who didn’t live up to the words, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” Though spring is coming, winter rarely ends so soon. So here’s one more plug for shoveling our […]

Know before you No

Know before you No

I’m so tired of people saying No! to things they don’t Know anything about, whether its national politics or just something new on the menu. The other day I heard a fellow at my favorite lunch place look at something new on the menu and say, “I don’t like that!” I asked why and he […]

Move your butt

Move your butt

It looks like some disgusting kind of confetti. But it’s butts. A couple of businesses around town with a bunch of employees don’t allow smoking indoors. So the workers take their breaks outside to smoke. Then they drop dozens and dozens of their grimy, slimy butts on the sidewalk every day. And nobody ever picks […]

Mine is better than yours!

Mine is better than yours!

OK, your computer/phone/tablet brand is so much way better than mine. It’s the Uber gadget that tops everything. Now go away and stop bragging. I am so tired of people trying to instill computer envy. It’s almost Freudian. It reminds me of that old saying about cars… the only thing that malfunctions in any car […]

I know it’s not mine…

I know it’s not mine…

But it’s not yours, either. And that bugs me. The other day I was in a restaurant where condiments and napkins were set out beside the counter for people to take for their burgers and dogs. A Catsup packet or two, some relish and mayo, that’s fine for everybody. But the girl beside me snatched […]
