My definition of my least favorite season of the year goes something like this: Winter is cold and dark. It usually takes hold in November and finally relinquishes to spring sometime in March. December, January and February are typically oppressive with snowdrifts, below-zero temperatures,...
Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting  I think I’ll have my class reunion at my place. I’ll provide all the food, valet parking and a place for everyone to spend the night.  Wow! That will be a great expense for you.  Naw, I was homeschooled. Driving by Bruce's drive  I have a wonderful...
People ask the wrong questions all the time.  I usually wear an analog watch every day, and people will ask me the time, even when they have their phone out because they want to see my watch.  My favorite recently has been the young teenagers that have no clue how to read an analog watch asking...
Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting  One of my shoes is tighter than the other.  Are your feet different sizes?  No, I put both socks on the same foot.   Driving by Bruce's drive  I have a wonderful neighbor named Bruce. Whenever I pass his drive, thoughts occur to me. It was stupid...
Every time it gets this cold I recall that old theme song from Chilly Willy.  The show started in the 1950s, well before I was born, but I was able to watch it through repeats on the Woody Woodpecker show in the 1980s.  During weeks like we have this week, where the cold seems to cut right to the...
Old Man Winter is late in arriving this year. By his absence, he allowed us some record-breaking warm temperatures for the month of December, gave us a brown Christmas, and let us see only a dusting of snow. Personally, I’m all right with all of that. We are now well into January and it looks...
A nice backpack.  I bought one this summer to use with football, it was a hot summer, it has a spot for a water bladder as well as many pockets for a variety of playbooks, tape, whistles and various other supplies.  When it got to the late season my coat and gloves lived in it, just in case I...
Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting  I talked to that guy for 30 minutes and I still couldn’t remember his name.  Why didn’t you ask him his name?  I couldn’t do that. I know him too well. Driving by Bruce's drive I have a wonderful neighbor named Bruce. Whenever I pass his drive,...
Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting  Here’s your gift. Forgive the brown paper bag. I don’t like to spend money on wrapping paper.  It’s the gift I gave you last year.  I don’t like to spend money on gifts either.  Driving by Bruce's drive  I have a wonderful neighbor named Bruce....
Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting  I want socks or underwear for Christmas.  Why would you want those things?  Because I never get what I want.  Echoes from the Loafers’ Club Meeting redux  I’m afraid I’ll get nothing for Christmas.   That’s great news.   How is that great news...
