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 […]

What can go wrong will go wrong

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The art of the live shot. We live in a world where a 4 year old can tweet, text and shoot a selfie, all while peeing on himself in nursery school. Technology is easy and ubiquitous, so it’s surprising when it fails. It seems like the […]

the 23 year old words

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The magic of writing. It’s cathartic. It’s wonderful. It documents the ages and expresses the raw vision of the soul. I was thinking about this thing that we humans do called writing. Every culture has its own language, its own alphabet, its own way of documenting […]

La Quinta Tuscaloosa

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ The La Quinta Inn in Tuscaloosa. “Make a right in 100 yards,” my GPS hollers. My girlfriend is nervous. I see her looking around, trying to relock doors that are all ready locked. “Is this the hotel?” she says trying to be brave. I want to […]

The Graduate

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy. Graduation Day. My oldest graduated from the University of Alabama Saturday. Roll Tide. We are driving toward campus. It’s stop and go traffic. I see a traffic control officer, so I roll down my window. “Hi. is this for graduation?” She nods yes, waving me forward […]

Roll Tide Roll

You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you what’s crazy™ My son graduates from the University of Alabama Saturday. He is graduating with a degree in geology. He hopes to work for an oil company or perhaps a municipality. It’s an exciting time. He has his whole world ahead of him. I know he’s thrilled to […]
