The Introduction of the Tuckas (Excerpt from Children’s Book)

I’ve been asked several times to better explain the Tuckas after the last excerpt, so here is a portion of the book from before the last post. It happens earlier in the book and lightly explains what the Tuckas are, and how they relate to the story. There’s more, but this should suffice.

The rain was pouring as they climbed up the hillside. It was so fast and furious that the three of them could barely see the path and so they took their time, one step at a time, for they were fearful that Continue reading

The Cave Part I (Excerpt from Children’s Book)

This is an excerpt from the children’s book that I’m working on, from time-to-time. Hope you enjoy. Again, I don’t edit or proof-read so there will be mistakes. Just comment and let me know. 🙂 Also, this is mid-book… so just keep that in mind. The book doesn’t begin this way.

The Cave Part I

They went hand-in-hand (or in some cases, hand-in-hoof) further down into the cave until it got so dark that Tessa and Levi could not see anything at all. “I’m scared,” whispered Levi.

“I am, too,” Tessa whispered back. They took another few careful steps before Continue reading

“Sunburnt in December” – The Long Slide

Excerpt from “Sunburnt in December” – The Long Slide
by Senator Brett

We were driving hard, sliding and hugging through the short easy curves of Pacific Highway 1. Sand, sand, sand on one side of us and looming, open-faced rocky cliffs on the other. Forget the brochures, ladies and gentlemen. Forget the television shows and the commercial advertisement make-up. Trust me, the coastline of Southern California can be a scary place, a very scary place indeed, especially if 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

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

TOTD – Spare Change Equals One Ticket?!

Thought of the Day – Spare Change Equals One Ticket?!

by Senator Brett

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that homeless people could get more creative with their panhandling? I mean, I think it’d be great if homeless people went to the mall with a bunch of raffle tickets and stood next to the escalators with a sign that read Continue reading

TOTD – The Golden Death?!

I saw a commercial the other night that inspired this…

Thought of the Day – The Golden Death?!

by Senator Brett

So… Golden Corral has now added a chocolate fountain AND a cotton candy machine to it’s already over-the-top-here’s-your-heart-disease buffet lineup… which makes me think…

Golden Corral should get a tax break for every person that dies in their restaurant or shortly after eating at the establishment: $5K for anyone that dies waiting in line to get their food… because we all know that waiting causes the heart a great deal of stress, $10K for anyone that dies mid-bite… uh, because chewing is an exercise, $15K for anyone that dies after leaving a Golden Corral Continue reading

Chickens Are Making Us Dumb!

Okay, so this is gonna be one of those posts that makes everyone mad. I’m okay with that. You know what… let’s just get right to it…

Chickens Are Making Everyone Dumb!

by Senator Brett

Okay, this Chick-fil-A thing is getting WAY out of hand! And, not just on one side of the issue… on all sides. Actually, to be honest, the fact that this thing is even risen to the title of “issue” is a sad commentary on the state of our national discourse. So, seriously, everyone just stop for the next few minutes. Take a little bit of your time, read this, and then decide if what you are doing/saying/thinking makes any sense at all.

1. To the mayors that are trying to keep Chick-fil-A out of your cities:

Stop! Just stop… you’re a mayor… a mayor… not Idi Amin! Continue reading
