In my lifetime, I have always enjoyed a drink or two at the end of the day. I don’t do it to get comatose, paralyzed, or even to forget. I just enjoy a drink that relaxes me so that I
A while back, a friend of mine gave me a copy of The Dictator’s Handbook: Why Bad Behavior is Almost Always Good Politics by Bruce Mesquita to read. I started it several times, but never was able to get beyond
This is one of my all time favorite videos. They all believe an old GEEZER could actually do this.
I guess that there is no bigger sign that you are a true GEEZER than when someone in the now (use your own definition of “now”) generation sees you pull out your flip phone and make a call. A few
Yesterday, I was sitting at our outside picnic table reading a book. It was a fairly hot day, but it was cool enough under the shade of a canopy. As always, when I read it takes me a long time
The other day when looking through an assortment of cardboard boxes in my garage (I was looking for some family information to trace my heritage [more on that in a later blog]), I found my high school yearbook from my
I don’t get a chance to use the phrase “Run Amuck” much, but sometimes it seems the best description of the actions of my three grandchildren. I thought it meant “out-of-control,” but the Internet dictionary says it means “a state
You may well think that the pursuit of the perfect coffee cup is frivolous at the least and stupid at the most (I think that phrase says what I want it to?). But nevertheless, I have been involved in a

When I was a kid, 90% of the time if I wanted to go somewhere, I either walked or rode my bike. My Dad’s typical response to. “Dad, I need a ride to the bowling alley” (rarely bowled but loved
Since the release of the first James Bond movie Dr. No in 1962, every spy movie has had pretty much the same plot. You fill in the blanks. The debonair, heroic ____________ infiltrates high society in order to stop the
If you’re a GEEZER and a BOOMER and watched television as a kid, surely you remember the many westerns televised in the early 1950s. They were like the detective/crime shows are today—the most popular genre on any network. Some shows
I got to thinking the other day (I do that once in a while) and let my mind wander over the TV shows I watched growing up. Specifically, I was thinking about the shows filmed in the black and white era at
Ray Jessel is an 84-year-old GEEZER who recently floored the audience on America’s Got Talent. His song is hilarious, but I think that just watching the way this guy sparkles as he goes through life is the real story here.
Sam has his bad points, and Sam has his good points. Sam sheds, is rambunctious, is a lot to handle, unruly, he farts, doesn’t listen, chews on everything, lives by his own rules. But Sam loves us. So Sam stays.
