Stroke of Luck or Near Debt Experience – Part 1

Three weeks into my time at home while my family is in New Hampshire for part of the summer I am still holding out hopes of accomplishing great and many things in my unfamily time. But, with one week left before I join them, I’m not sure what I’ve accomplished. And I had a headache. […]

Are You There God? It’s Me, Jason

Do I look like Judy Blume? To those of you who do not know the Judester, many a female growing up in the 1970s and 80s can rattle off the books that they read and re-read and passed along to girlfriends with dogged ears (the books, not the girls – as far as I know). […]

Mad about Moisture

My wife is a New Hampshire girl. New Hampshire in the winter is beautiful. One of the beautiful things about the New Hampshire winters – aside from ski hills a stone’s throw in every direction – is that there is moisture in the air. Moisture in winter air is a delightful thing. When Cynthia and […]

Subscribe to This (Sex)

What is the one thing we all want and we all need? It’s something many think about every day, especially on the Internet. Yes, I knew readers as intelligent as you, would guess. I feel we’re on the same wavelength and by saying what I’m referring to will only cause you to drift from me […]

Burning Man and a Flask

I did some of my best work in the “garten” -as I like to call it. That’s kindergarten. But before I could get in there, I went through all the rigorous testing of the “pre-garten” during kindergarten registration. I was at that stage of my life in 1969. This was the time of school psychologists’ […]

An Irishman, Englishman, Glass Of Milk and Pop Culture Walk into a Bar

Generally, I’m not black or white on many issues. I don’t know why this is. Sometimes I think it may have something to do with my heritage. For all practical purposes, I’m like many multi-generational Americans – I’m a mutt. The Spafford family came to this country in 1650 from England. My mom’s family, The […]

Plunger Etiquette

Occasionally, when one is using a bathroom, one will need the assistance of a device that was created to spare innocent people embarrassment, while solving a basic problem. This device is called a plunger. We all know the drill. At least I believe my readers are plunger familiar folks. I have seen the kinds of […]

How to Spell Quantity and Other Cuss Words

Dear readers I’m afraid this selection may not be for the faint of heart. I may have to use a word or two that none of us use and I will have to allude to some words that some of us use. I promise to move this conversation in an educational and enlightening direction and […]
