Blowing Your Top



Do you have a few things in life (or relationships) that just seem to set-you-off?

I think I am rather easy-going and laid-back … I don’t think I am teh ‘unhinged’ type of person.

But maybe everybody thinks that about themselves?

So I decided to ponder a moment to see just what might come to mind…

Being blamed for something you didn’t do.

I still remember being punished for things that my sister did, but my parents were sure she was just too young and too sweet to have done them.

People telling the end of a movie.

For me, it’s someone telling me who won a basketball or a baseball game that I have saved to watch for later- and they knew it!!!

People who can only see one side of an argument.

I won’t even go there.

Drivers who sight-see down the interstate… and then as soon as you pass them, they decide to speed past you and the cycle repeats. 

That’s why road-rage is an illness!

Having conversations with your seat -mate during a movie … AND IT’S NOT EVEN ABOUT THE MOVIE! 

Wow… I better stop. Maybe I’m not as laid-back as I thought?

ONE MOMENT, PLEASE

ONE MOMENT, PLEASE


Yes, I am going to go back into the annals of time, to a much slower era, and reminisce.

Just thought I would be up-front about it.

Just had a conversation where I said, “Hang on. Let me dial that number here quickly.” And I got a funny look from a sophomore – in college – baseball player.

The phrase that received the inquisitive look “dial a number”.

So …

For you youngsters out there …

Here is how the prehistoric phone looked:

I LOVE MYSTERIES



I love reading a great detective novel. There is nothing better on a gloomy night for passing the time than solving an intricately convinced murder.

My favorite writers:

  • John Grisham
  • James Patterson
  • Robert Crais
  • Kathy Reichs
  • Lee Child
  • Jeffery Deaver
  • Sue Grafton
  • James Lee Burke
  • Patrica Cornwell
  • Michael Connelly

I’m sure there are some I can’t remember off the top-of-my-head.

Nothing better than a good murder (unless you happen to be the victim?).

‘SIMON SAYS’ IS STILL A WINNER

I am sure that you played Simon Says as a kid.

Here is a new twist.


As you saw, In this version of Simon, we-are-all-winners.

Notice his tricks, and if you emulate them, I think you will become an stopper Simon Says Hero!

FYI: Usually I don’t life non-winner games, but the inserting the the ‘Oh, man’ can actually make the game funnier. I have even used the ‘Oh, man’ as a Simon Says following request. The many ways to ‘Oh, man’ were hilarious!

Have Fun!!!
