Episode 589Mar 04, 2018Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire
I'm sure you've heard that grammar school chant, "Liar, Liar, pants on fire." My pants have not been on fire for some time. They are folded neatly between my fanny and my big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room. And my pants are not on fire because I never tell a lie. Well...hardly ever.
I don't say things like, "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you." Also "I did not chop down that damn cherry tree," "nor did I have sex with that woman." "Watch my lips, no new taxes." "Your president is not a thief. "That wasn't really me in that video." Oh no. But I must confess to an occasional "Can I tell you the truth?"
Episode 588Feb 25, 2018Barbara's February Flower
A little yellow flower poked it's head up through the frozen winter ground today. The first absolute notice that Spring is really coming. I picked it, and gave it to my Lady Wonder Wench. She keeps things like that...shells from beaches we've explored on vacations past, a shirt of mine she used to wear to bed when I was away on business over night, a very old Christmas poem I wrote a long time ago... 3D "Selfies" of the times of our lives. Her favorite story is called "Losers." It's in here too. Thanks for sharing this with my Lady and me.

Episode 583Jan 21, 2018Gratitude Attitude Again
I'm sitting here in my big, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room reminding myself to take note of some of the good stuff in my life. Call it taking time to smell the roses if you like. I call it feeding my Gratitude Attitude. That means having just as much gratitude for the little stuff like taking a deep breath when you open a fresh jar of coffee, as for the big stuff like cashing a very nice check.
Our Gratitude Attitude doesn't mean looking at life through rose colored glasses. Bi-focals will do just fine. "Big Louie" the head guy in my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, keeps reminding us that we sometimes can't help what's happening in our lives, but we can help how we feel about our lives. I guess you could say it's about taking charge of where we put our emotional focus.
There is a nut case dictator in North Korea, and we need to recognize that threat. But not when there's a scoop of cherry vanilla ice cream in a dish right in front of you. There's a time and a place for everything. Dig in. Enjoy. And remember that not too many North Koreans have a dish of cherry vanilla ice cream in front of them. That's the Gratitude Attitude.
Some politician in Washington pulls an outstandingly stupid, or greedy trick? Be glad you're an American, so you really don't have to sit at the top of your driveway with your shotgun to pick off a pack of bad guys storming up the block to hurt your lady, or yourself, or to take your stuff. At least not today you don't. And probably not tonight either. Not even next week. One day/night at a time. Gratitude Attitude.
Episode 582Jan 14, 2018Shared Bodily Warmth
I'm recording this podcast while I'm sitting here in my big, manly, comfortable, black leather poppa chair in my living roomâ€¦by the fireplace. I've got the kindling in place, and a couple of logs stacked on top. When I am finished recording this podcast I am going to start a big, beautiful, warm, cozy fire, and I may try to interest my Lady Wonder Wench in an experiment that has to do with shared, bodily warmth.
It is so cold out that when somebody says "Hello," you can see his lips move, and a little puff of cloud comes out of his mouth, but all you hear is a little clunk because the frozen sound of the word hits the ground. You've got to pick it up and thaw it out to hear it.
It is so cold, flocks of chickens are trying to break into the KFC so they can warm up in the fryer. Male dogs are getting stuck to fire hydrants in the most embarrassing way. Guys are no longer accepting phone calls from funny relatives in Florida. People are shivering like donuts at a weight watchers meeting.
When I came into the house from getting the mail this morning, I spent a few minutes standing in front of the refrigerator to warm up. Playboy magazine can't publish because there's no amount of money that could make a girl take her clothes off. Hitchhikers are holding up pictures of their thumbs. The optician down the block is giving away free ice scrapers with every new pair of eye glasses. Over by the town hall a while ago, a streaker froze in mid streak. The town council decided to just stick a plaque on him and pretend he was a Greek statue until spring. My buddy Randy next door said he chipped a tooth on his coffee.
