I got a telemarketer who called my office so good the other day! He started reading from his script, very monotone in his speech, and then asked if the owner was there. I replied, “Yes I am, and I did the job exactly as you told me to, but there's blood everywhere! What do you … Continue reading Dead weight
I had a conversation with a lady recently that really made me think. She mentioned how when she received a bad health diagnosis, the nurse in the room came up to her and put her arm around her. The woman got mad, thinking she didn't need anyone's pity, and angrily left the room and walked … Continue reading Solace
I always feel sorry for that poor guy named Will. You know, when in the movies, the person in charge says, “Fire at will!” Fire at will is a command given to allow the troops to fire when they are ready. They use their discretion and choose their targets. It gives the soldier a greater … Continue reading Pink Slip
Today my post contains one of my favorite words, vassal. I even did a post on it back in October 24, 2018.

I recently had one of those situations, where I was caught up in the moment, and the words just slipped out of my mouth. But I was not embarrassed by what came out. I was outside shoveling snow.

This is not your average Christmas post. You know me and math, so when I read this in the book, The Greatest Words Ever Spoken, by Steven K. Scott, I had to share it with you this Christmas. In the book, Mr. Scott has taken all the words of Jesus and organized them into categories. … Continue reading Christmas Math
A man walks into a bar, shadily dressed in a trench coat with the collar pulled up and a fedora pulled down over his face. A livid scar runs down his cheek, and his two tone shoes are dangerously polished. In his hands he's carrying an accordion case. The bar falls completely silent. All of … Continue reading Hold your breath
I'm sure you can relate. You're having one of “those” days. Everything is coming at you from every angle, at the exact same time, and you are just trying to breathe. Well I had one of those days this past Wednesday. I decided I needed a break, and logged onto WordPress to read some posts … Continue reading What?!
I was recently visiting a fellow rancher, who had a big metal ring installed to the side of the front door of the house. I asked about it. They said there was also one installed by the door of the barn. We get some really harsh whiteout snowstorms, and at the first sign of a … Continue reading Lifeline
A fellow reader suggested I re-post this today. So I am. Happy Thanksgiving! I try to count my blessings with regularity. It takes my mind off the negative and focuses on what positive things I do have in my life. I have been taking it to a new level lately by witnessing what I am … Continue reading Things I’m grateful for
