I was driving on my way to a Sunday lunch with a friend. The birds were swooping through the trees doing whatever it is that they do with a furiously intense enthusiasm, much more than I had at that time. The rays of the sun were just barely warm enough to burn away the morning dew on that young fall...

As I stood there in the early evening twilight staring at the two of them, both of them staring at me, they were so hot for each other I could almost see the heat radiating from their respective private parts. I folded under the pressure of the moment and said sure, no problem. A couple hours went...

I stared at him blankly. Half of my mind in disbelief and the other angry for him sharing, no telling me about what he had been doing. I was angry with myself for getting involved in his deception. Would I be a home wrecker if I chose to come clean with what he had been doing or do I stay silent...

I have decided to label something that may or may not already have a proper nomenclature. If so, you can call me stupid afterwards. Are you ready? Are you on the edge of your seat awaiting my prolific commentary? Hardly you say? Ok, here it comes anyway. “The Van Duzer Principal.” What...

So another summer has come and gone. Shortly it will be just a memory filed away in the depths of my mind where I keep the folders of summers past. Soon the leaves will begin to blanket everything as we start to dig out blankets that were stored away at the start of last spring. Frankly betwe...

I have a phrase I use called “don’t be a dumb American.” What do I mean by that? Well let me explain. First of all since I am an American citizen, I use the word “American” as a reference to me personally. You could easily substitute the word for, Australian, Canadian, human, cat, dog...

My father and I were never particularly close as I grew up. He worked at Ford Motor Company as a fork lift operator which entailed unloading parts and materials from incoming trains and trucks for distribution to various places in an automobile assembly complex. He typically worked the afternoon shifts...

  It’s funny how the lines between freedom of speech, freedom of expression and being politically correct, have become so blurred as our society advances with technology. I just read an article online regarding Emma Sullivan, an 18 year old Kansas high school senior, concerning a negative...

  So a while ago I was on the phone with a close friend. He was going on and on about the new woman in his life. Again. Over a time period that spanned a few months, our phone conversations (he lives in another state) had been dominated by everything “her.” Being the ever supportive...

I  profess to be no expert on the subject of happiness and love. Though when I was younger, I imagined that by now, I would be living the American dream of  having a nagging wife, 2.5 delinquent children and only another 50 years left on my mortgage. Alas, the wife never materialized. I only wat...
