Perils of Caffeine in the Evening



"Not boring!" - Maria at work; "You lie about me on your blog." - Mrs. Perils;

Mi Cumpleanos

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 04:36:31 +0000

So I approach another birthday, insignificant in terms of celebrated “zero” numerology, but it’s still there and has to be navigated.  I think these are “speed-bump” birthdays, but they’re becoming less disruptive, and more complicit in abetting my hurtling to dusty doom. It’s like I’m cruising along, as we do in a comfortable car that befits [...]



Hello, Seattle, 43 Years Ago

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 07:42:02 +0000

Click to engorge So I’ve been watching Mad Men fitfully for a couple years on Netflix, haven’t pushed into the last half of the last season just yet. It beguiles and intrigues me because it’s set in the 1955-1965 time when my parents were reaching the apex of their youth and surfing, however timidly, the [...]



October

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 08:17:00 +0000

Click to engorge Suddenly it’s October, my birth month, and there’s a bite in the air and a decidedly more severe angle to the sunlight, as if it’s beginning to ration itself, as opposed to its June - August profligacy. In its honor, here’s one of the most gorgeous pieces I’ve ever played, Eric Whitacre’s October for [...]

50th Reunion Letter to the Class of ‘67

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:05:05 +0000

It’s amazing how the years have melted away.  I’m sorry I can’t be there with you next weekend, I was just in Columbus last weekend to march and play with the Ohio State Marching Band Alumni.  I would have stayed through the week if my mom still lived in Pburg, but the only remaining family [...]



Feliz Cumpleanos, mi Hermano!

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 05:31:22 +0000

Tomorrow’s my middle brother’s (Larry Philbin) birthday,and I have a few things to say about that. Our mom was a girly-girl, and they had hot girl names picked out for each of us 3 until that wrinkly birth-borne appendage destroyed their hopes. I was to be Cynthia Leigh, Larry Philbin was to be [...]



OSU-Michigan - Once Again, the Enduring Spectacle

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 08:28:05 +0000

A little background for the uninitiated - All three of us - I and my two younger brothers - graduated from Ohio State. Our parents and maternal grandparents attended OSU as well, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that the OSU-Michigan football game has become a focal point of our shared [...]



My 911 Story (rescued from Facebook oblivion)

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:10:38 +0000

I was working in Milwaukee when 911 happened. I don’t watch TV in the morning (I seldom watch it in the evening, either), and I arrived at my client’s that Tuesday morning to see folks in the lunchroom huddled around a small TV. I asked “what’s up”, and they couldn’t [...]



Home, Once More

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 07:18:20 +0000

My Ohio State Marching Band Alumni has a “regular band”, a year-round group that plays concerts, parades, funerals, weddings and other special Buckeye occasions.  Of course, you have to live within driving distance of Columbus to participate, which definitely rules me ineligible as long as a private jet is beyond my means. Last winter, however, I [...]



Technology Gets Personal

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 05:24:21 +0000

I’m off to interview with a new client on the east side and, because the urban topography around here changes so quickly I often don’t recognize my own block sometimes, let alone the unruly suburbs, I plug my phone into a charger and run my Verizon Android GPS app.  I tap in my destination, and [...]



Memorial Day Musings

Tue, 31 May 2016 01:23:28 +0000

(Originally posted on Facebook, but cross-posted here - with enhancements - before it sinks beneath the FB wave) My dad and my grandfather were both veterans, but neither experienced combat, and I rode a college deferment into a beneficent draft lottery number as the Vietnam War wound down. So Memorial Day to me [...]
