TOTD – Baseball & Jesus?!

Senator Brett’s Positively Cynical Thought of the Morning:

The Astros are playing good ball while most people, in general, agree that the world is headed to Hell. It occurred to me this morning that, knowing my luck, there’s probably a good chance that the Astros will make it to the World Series, be up 3 games to 1… and then, BAM, Jesus comes back. And, then it’s me in a lonely seat watching my friends and family float away. The World Series would, most likely, be canceled because there wouldn’t be enough players. Because, if all their post interviews are accurate, all the players love God. They sure do thank Him a lot.

But, don’t worry, football fans… the NFL ain’t goin’ nowhere! Those guys are mostly criminals. Hell, the Cincinnati Bengals wouldn’t lose a soul (literally) and would be the favorites for a Superbowl run.

This whole Eric Garner grand jury decision has really polarized our social collective. And, while I normally tend to observe and point out the negative side of things I think it’s kinda sad that no one Continue reading

From New Orleans: With Awe And Wonder (Excerpt From “My Little Book of Essays”)

Written, approximately, one year before Hurricane Katrina. I’m reworking it now so it will be much longer, and hopefully better, but this is the original… all those many years ago.

It hit me like a ton of bricks. Like an unseen predator waiting in the shadows it 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. 🙂

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

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

TOTD – Fair is Fair is Fair, Right?!

And, this one goes out to all the lovely ladies in the audience… 

Thought of the Day – Fair is Fair is Fair, Right?!

by Senator Brett

This past weekend I spent a lot of time with three little girls that all live together and that, for the most part, get along very well. Or, so it seems.

After this weekend I can honestly say that the most popular statement that ever comes out of the mouth of a little girl, who is with other little girls, is, in fact Continue reading
