Old Man McCarron (Excerpt from “The Ongoing Lives of Andre”)

Old Man McCarron hung his raincoat on the coat rack directly behind his front door and carefully leaned the umbrella into its usual place behind it as he entered his gray, one-story duplex half in the historic part of town. Almost by instinct he glanced over towards the small desk that had found a home in the corner immediately to his right to check and see if his answering machine had been doing its job while he’d been out. The frightfully small desk was Continue reading

For Mom… (Written a long time ago)

I actually wrote this in my early twenties, right after my grandfather passed way. And, since I know that there are those close to me, and others not close to me, who have gone through some hard times here lately I thought I might share what I thought those many years ago. I wish you all hope, love and endless comfort. 🙂

Also, it is my hope that I’ve become a better writer since then… but, doubtful I am. 🙂

For Mom…

This is for my mother. It might get sad… it might get syrupy. I make no apologies whatsoever.

TOTD – Your Voice is Larger Than Your Thought Process?!

Thought of the Day – Your Voice is Larger Than Your Thought Process?!

by Senator Brett

Today I went to my great-nephew’s Pop Warner football game. Since he is six-years-old this means that the game featured a lot of missed tackles, a little whining, a great deal more confusion and a couple of kids who knew what they were doing out there. However, here’s what I learned today: Continue reading

The Last Supper of the Constitution

Disclaimer: I wrote this many moons ago… back when it still mattered to me. I give up now.  Actually, I gave up some time ago.

The Last Supper of the Constitution

by Senator Brett

They’ve been crossing my mind a lot lately, fluttering about as I make my way through the ordinariness of my daily existence: these wandering shapes and crooked lines, these loops and circles, these small words that amount to very little until you place them together row on row. And then they become as large as Life itself. 

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

And you pretty much know where it goes from Continue reading

The Great Wolf Hunt of 2012!

Well, this is the beginning of a new category for me. Well, let me start over… this is the beginning of me posting entries on activities that I have been doing for years. Yeah, that is actually more accurate.

Last night, while not being able to sleep for the 100,00th time I happened across a posting on my Facebook Feed concerning the hunting of wolves. Now, for those that don’t know… I’m a huge wolf fan. Also, I am huge fan of sarcastic comments. To be honest if I could find a sarcastic wolf I would probably devote my life to finding a way for it to live forever.

Most of the comments for the photo were against the hunting of wolves. However, there were a few people defending the practice. And, while I know that I don’t know everything about the subject, I decided that it was posted on Facebook… so that means that knowledge Continue reading

Texting while driving is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous things that a person can do on our roads. Some scientific studies show that it is even as dangerous as Continue reading

Thought of the Day – “011011001” in Spanish, Of Course?!

I’ve noticed that I rarely can wait for a movie or album to be released on their scheduled dates. Oftentimes, I find myself watching the movie, or listening to the album, from online site. The other day I was Continue reading
