Kill the Messenger

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. Killing the messenger. My Facebook page is lighting up with angry rhetoric. Why? Because certain issues get people nuts. Pot people hate anti pot stories. Gun people hate anti gun stories. Some people are so passionate they get on the internet and vomit their every visceral […]

WATER PIPE VICTIM

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The whopper of a story. A 53-year-old is the most wanted interview in Nashville tonight. Why? Because he was rescued from an 18 inch water pipe under ground. Sunday afternoon, someone at the Sportsplex tennis court heard a muffled scream for help. Police arrive. Then fire […]

The Diamond Ring

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The wedding ring. A bad week gets better. Nobody said life was easy. But nobody said it had to suck all the time either. The mother sat on her couch and held back the tears. In her lap, her 18 month old child. The precocious little […]

Dominican Buzz

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Cigar Buzz. I feel a little rough today. My brain feels like it’s wearing a wet sweater. I feel like the inside of a stale beer beer left on the counter after a party. I’m full of ashes and someone’s old chewing gum. I bought the cigar on […]

Bounty Hunter

You know what’s Crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The Bounty Hunters. Bang. Bang. Bang. The mother of 3 small children, ages 4,3 and 1, jumps up and looks out the peep-hole. BANG. BANG. BANG. Her heart is racing. She is scared. She tells me that she sees no one at the door, only a […]

Hope Revisited

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy.™Hope. I wrote this 2 plus years ago and stumbled upon it while I was cleaning up the Life’s Crazy site. I read the 1st line. Then the 2nd. Then I thought to myself; this is still as appropriate today, as it was 750 days ago, 750 […]

NFL Plutocracy

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The NFL suspending Tom Brady for 4 games. Really? That’s a quarter of the season. That would be like your boss suspending you for 90 days because you took some paper clips home. Suspending someone for a quarter of their season, for something analogous to spilling […]

The Who @ 50

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. The Who. Wow. Big and bold and thunderous. Seeing the WHO was musical and iconic and surreal and dream like. The Who At 50. Standing in the front row, yes the front row, I was at times overwhelmed. The two surviving members stood on the stage […]

Spring Time and the Blade

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ Yard work. It’s Spring Time. Mother Earth has thrown off her winter parka and icy scowl. She is basking in renewal, arms stretched out wide, smiling at the sun. “what took ya so long,” she says. Thank God it’s Spring Time. Months of frosty lethargy and […]

The Jail House Con

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The new sheriff. He’s a nice man. He’s a church man. He speaks with a soft voice and has a quick smile. But he’s new to the job and there are some growing pains. I’ve had a few incidents with the sheriff now that make me […]
