A Country at Peace Can Be a Slippery Slope

After flooding the kitchen with my shit-bag plumbing skills, our family was thrown into an uproar of instability. The voice of sanity that I’ve long ago buried under decades of pride and stupidity was screaming out to me to just call a plumber when the dishes stopped drying in the dishwasher. But nooooo. I hadContinue reading “A Country at Peace Can Be a Slippery Slope”

Is Our Freedom Ebbing Away?

This post is in response to the article: “Contact Tracing Program Introduced in Kentucky” on Lex18.com. Our newly appointed Kentucky governor introduced a seven month contact tracing program yesterday during a press conference. It’s basically a strategy to follow around  victims of COVID-19 (unspecified as to how) and then health officials will contact the dozensContinue reading “Is Our Freedom Ebbing Away?”

Book Rec: The Presidents Club

But there are stillContinue reading “Country Music Part I”

Book Rec.: Rawhide Down

A Little Damaged

You may remember the event that took place on September 21, 2005. For the first time since 9/11 the nation stood still and almost every eye was on their TV set or ear on the radio. Once again, fellow Americans were in aerial danger. One hundred forty passengers and six crew members were gripped inContinue reading “A Little Damaged”
