no hablo español. I have tried since I was fourteen to learn and speak Spanish and it just doesn’t stick. But I know why. You might think I’m a bit loopy but believe me no hablo español. The Hispanic gods have cursed me. Let me explain, I grew up in the Latino section of LosContinue reading “You shouldn’t not do this ever never.”

Butchy the Chicken Whisperer, chap 3.
To remind you once again I am the Chicken Whisperer. I’d rather be Sky King but I wear glasses. Sky King doesn’t wear glasses. Howdy Dooty doesn’t wear glasses. The Creature from the Black Lagoon doesn’t wear glasses. Never the less, I am Overlord and Sovereign of the chicken yard located behind our backyard. SoContinue reading “Butchy the Chicken Whisperer, chap 3.”
Just writing down what is bloviated.
For what reason do politicians hammer news reporters for printing or voicing the political news. So a group of reporters now are at a news conference writing down on pads or recording voice or video what exactly is being said. Then repeat word for word in print or on radio or TV what that politicianContinue reading “Just writing down what is bloviated.”
Little House on the Avenue.
We six lived in a smallish two bedroom house in East L A. There were a Ma and a Pa and we four kids. Living in a house of about 740-square feet. Teeny tiny for sure. How did we do that back then? I was born shortly after my folks bought this post Spanish colonialContinue reading “Little House on the Avenue.”
Counting on count results.
Majority rules basic rule. When will we understand when the bigger number of votes represents the majority and the smaller number of votes indicates the minority, the majority wins. So the majority rules. The minority acquiesces to the majority wishes. Basic democracy 101. Therefore how many times do you want to recount and audit votes.Continue reading “Counting on count results.”
Facebooking out of necessity.
I can easily and unabashedly say I hate Facebook I am here on this so-called social media in order to follow my close friends and relatives on FB. I need to keep an eye on them. I need to know what they are talking about. I need to know what trends they follow and why.Continue reading “Facebooking out of necessity.”
I am a longtime sepratist.
I absolutely believe Church and State should be separate. Never the twain shall meet. Church should take care of its own business. And the same for the state. Stay out of church business. Church business should never present itself before the Supreme Court. The state business should never be settled in church by church people.Continue reading “I am a longtime sepratist.”
They never spoke of it.
My dad told me he would often visit the local grocery and visit with the produce manager who happened to be Japanese. The time frame was early World War II. My parents had recently moved from Oklahoma to southern California and was living in an area of Los Angeles known as Boyle Heights. On oneContinue reading “They never spoke of it.”
Butchy the chicken whisperer, chap 2
I didn’t become a chicken whisperer just by ordinary means. No sir! It first starts by knowing how to hypnotize a chicken. Not an easy thing to do while wearing wire rim glasses. It takes practice and a willingness to get one’s hands dirty. Try holding a 12-pound Rhode Island Red by its feet. IContinue reading “Butchy the chicken whisperer, chap 2”
A Promenade to Perdition.
There was religiosity doctrinaire that silently prevailed in and around my church, albeit not written on stone tablet or in Old English print, which forbade boys from dancing with girls. Dogma spoken by some pulpit pontificators and well meaning but stern faced fundamentalist parents. “Thou shall nots” a fundamental catechism meant to save adolescence fromContinue reading “A Promenade to Perdition.”
