Growing up in various boroughs in and around Dallas, I wasn’t keenly aware of my social status until I was around 11 years old. It was then that I realized exactly how poor my family was. I just always assumed that drive-by shootings, german cockroaches and used drug needles were problems that everyone dealt with. I never… Continue reading Being Poor Used to Suck
It’s all in the Radiator!
I finally had what I needed. I was very tired by now, but I valiantly re-installed the new radiator, and filled the thing with coolant. After checking everything, I buttoned it all up for the night.
Everybody has a plan, until the Wi-Fi lags!
How old is “too old” to ride a bicycle? I am of the firm belief that as long as you can, you should. But…what if I’m wrong? What if I am just this delusional idiot wandering around thinking that at my age, I can still be a totally rad mountain bike trail king? Can I… Continue reading Everybody has a plan, until the Wi-Fi lags!
Idiosyncratic Point of View

Second, whatever lack of… Continue reading Thought I would share…

So, not to come off sounding all inspirational and shit, that’s not what I want this to be. I actually don’t have an end-game here, other than providing entertainment through the haunting memories that are my child-hood. I mean, who am I to inspire anyone? I’m just some dude who was wandering around aimlessly until… Continue reading Life doesn’t get easier…You have to get better at it!
So I really can’t decide what may be scarier. The thought of people reading this blog, actually understanding my twisted sense of humor AND enjoying it; or some of the people that I encountered while wandering aimlessly on the other side of that so-called fence. Reminds me of some of the “different” people that I have the pleasure of… Continue reading Redneck Uhaul
Think I’ll Start A Blog…
Photo by: Encinalense So I think I’ll start a blog. Not sure what I’ll blog about, but I feel that I have a LOT of pent-up, frustrated, blog type stuff that seriously needs an outlet. I mean, between a screwed up childhood (you think yours was bad?) and a quasi-sucessful career as a police… Continue reading Think I’ll Start A Blog…
