Do I Feel Like….Nyah!

All week I’ve been looking forward to sitting down and putting something together for you all. So to quote Louis Gossett Jr. as the Drill Sergent in “An Officer and a Gentleman,” my brain is “writing a check my body can’t cash.”  I mean, I’ve got plenty of ideas, I think, but to have the […]

Some Things Just Don’t Make No Sense.

The older we get, the more we look at life and just try to understand the stuff out there that just doesn’t make sense. Let’s take COVID for a moment, and let us look at it from a purely numerical standpoint. According to Google, who got their information from The New York Times, there are, […]

We Are Being Watched

Yep, pretty much wasted this weekend. And if you were to put a gun to my head, I really have no idea what I did. Well, I take that back. I basically binged-watch Person of Interest on Netflix before they took it off their system. Now, as I was spending hours rewatching a serious that […]

Virtual Holidays

Earlier this week, the County of Los Angeles here in California, due to the so-called “COVID Pandemic,” has decided in their infinite wisdom to cancel Halloween. As of this writing, they have decided to “backtrack” on this closure to “re-think” what to do. Other counties here in California have come out with the same type […]

Monsters Make No Sense

A couple of nights ago, Mrs. Nickels was relaxing on the couch and performing her customary flipping through the channels to see if anything good was on.

Gee, I Forgot.

And Where Do You Think You Are Going?

It seems that whenever we are turning on the news, and we are hearing stories about people being out of work, or businesses being shut down because of COVID, yet we always see a group of people, who, by their very definition, are called Essential Workers. I am speaking, of course, of the members of […]

Have We Really Thought About This?

I don’t know about you, but I am sick of wearing a mask. Now I’m sure I know what most of you people are thinking. “But Gary, you’re ugly as sin. We need you to wear the mask so you won’t scare our children.” Fine, but I’m talking about the mask that I have to […]

Little Toe

There is an old saying that is flying around the internet that goes something like this: We Learn From Our Pain. That being said, now I know why God gave us a Little Toe. For most of us, we have 5 toes on each foot. First, we have The Big Toe, which looks like it […]
