Eye in the Sky

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Eye in the Sky. It’s touted as a suspenseful thriller about Drone warfare. The star power alone is enough to put fannies in the seats. The acting chops are high in this film, staring with Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman – now deceased and Aaron Paul of […]

The live shots that never were

you know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The live shots that never were. We are parked downtown. If it hits, it will surely hit here, right? Wrong. I roll down the window of the live truck and let the sounds of honky tonk drift in the massive truck. The air is thick with […]

The Black Labs & the saliva laced Tennis Ball

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The tennis ball. It’s a slimy ball of saliva. It’s green and brown and chewed into a fuzzy pulp. It has the viscosity of a Texas oil gusher and the smell of rank milk bone. I watch the bigger dog chew on his tennis ball. It is […]

Happy Easter

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Easter! It represents so many things to so many people. It’s spring time and rejuvenation and re-birth. To Christians it’s the resurrection of Jesus. To Jews it’s the celebration of Passover. Easter is seldom on the same day, but it’s always on a Sunday following the first […]

The New Job

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The New Job. He was born 24 years ago. Pudgy and protected. He was the child who was smothered with excess and expectations and dreams. The 1st child is a unique child. So much anticipatory energy. As the oldest, he was inundated with attention and momma […]

March Madness

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ March Madness. I’m watching Villanova smack Iowa around like a domestic violence victim. Can a number 7 seed topple a number 2 seed? Not today, they can’t. I’m watching the Sunday news shows lift their leg and pee on the Trump campaign. I’m banging on the […]

wrong way driver

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Wrong Way Driver. Life is a gift. We spend so much time planning for the future and we forget to take stock in the right now. Golfer Walter Hagen reportedly said “Stop and smell the roses.” It means take time to notice things around you. […]

The Close Call

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The close call. I’m on a Southwest Flight out of Portland. We’re headed for Dallas for a quick stop and hop back to Nashville. I’m in the middle seat and the flight is relatively unremarkable. I’ve tried to sleep. I’ve had some peanuts. I’ve listened to […]

The Peter Iredale Ship Wreck

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The Oregon Ship Wreck. It’s a blustery March morning as we head toward the state park nestled on the Pacific Ocean. The sky is grey with wisps of blue peeking through occasionally. The horizon is full of tumultuous angst, like a teenager caught drinking at the prom. The wind is […]

The Meth Bust

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The meth bust. My alarm is set for 4am, but I’m wide awake. It’s 3:30 am and I am tossing and turning. I crack an eye lid and peek at the clock on the night stand. Tick tock. I close my eyes and try to sleep. […]
