Apologizing for everything, Part 2.

Apologizing for everything, Part 2.

You know there comes a time in every man’s life when he decides to chuck it all in, hang up his spurs, cash in his chips or simply to walk into the sunset and disappear. It’s not that time for me, I just wanted to share that thought with you before I let you in […]

Apologizing for everything.

Apologizing for everything.

It’s time to come clean. Spill the beans. Make amends. Apologize. I admit it. In this crazy — no, lunatic — times we live in, I have come to the conclusion the only chance I have not to be “cancelled” by the “progressive” people out there is to get a hold of and control my […]

Of the Super Game and Valentine’s Day

Of the Super Game and Valentine’s Day

Yup. The Super Game is over. Tom Brady won his seventh National Football League championship ring. The commercials for the “big game” were too preachy. And, I sill wish they would play the game on a Saturday night versus Sundays. ‘Nuff said on SuperBowl 55. * * * This week lovers of all stripes and […]

Restaurant Relief Program and more.

Restaurant Relief Program and more.

So, this week the high and mighty in Lansing have deemed it permissible to open up indoor, eat-out dining. Michigan restaurants were thrown a bone — a little life saver and allowed to open at a 25 percent capacity and to stay open only to 10 p.m. Which kind of reminds me of a comedy […]

The Readers . . . . they have spoken!

The Readers . . . . they have spoken!

You gotta’ admit it, sometimes I know what I am doing. I know, as a columnist — a person of undocumented knowledge or wit — my job is to get you readers emotionally involved. I need to take you by the hands and like the Pied Piper, lead you down the path I wish you […]

All’s quiet on the Michigan front (or is it?)

All’s quiet on the Michigan front (or is it?)

  I learn’t — and don’t use that word in school, kids because teachers frown upon its use — there were only three school districts in Oakland County who continuously maintained an in-person option for students since the school year began. Wanna’ know which districts? Clawson, Brandon and Oxford. I’m kind of surprised by this […]

Dear 2021 (and more for the New Year)

Dear 2021 (and more for the New Year)

Dec. 31, 2020 Dear 2021, I am excited about your arrival — now only a few hours away. I look forward to making your acquaintance! If I am to be honest with you, your predecessor really kinda sucked. The Year 2020 was one I was ready to usher out. Since I have yet to meet […]

Remember the day when I was sent to get the Christmas tree?

Remember the day when I was sent to get the Christmas tree?

I’ve written before about growing up in Clarkston’s ghettos – and, back then it meant anywhere not located in the half square mile of Clarkston proper (basically anywhere in Independence Township). If you lived in the township, folks from the village would scrunch their faces at you if you said you lived in Clarkston but […]

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

It’s the season for gratitude (finally!)

Hey, it’s November and whenever November rolls on in, I usually need to figuratively slap myself in the face; get my head out the muck and grime of everyday living and taste the proverbial coffee and smell the roses. November is a good time to remember it ain’t all bad. And, things could be a […]

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Captain’s Log, Stardate 2020-1102: There. Is. Only one. Day left. The question we have asked ourselves is, “Can we survive Election 2020?” * * * I send this exciting chapter of Don’t Rush Me into the hallowed halls of Don’t Rushmedon on Monday, November 2. Mothership Earth is still spinning in the cosmos. Asteroids are […]
