The Russian Martians Are Coming!

2014-10-15T17:39:56.536-06:00

Thursday August 8, 1974. A beautiful, calm, late summer, early evening day in Lake Country, Haliburton, Ontario. My memory doesn't hold what I or my family did up at the cottage that day but there is no doubt what we did when we came in for the...

Our Beloved D-Day Generation…

2014-06-05T16:19:13.593-06:00

Most of us weren’t even born then, or if we were, were small toddlers, but the adults who fought in World War II, who braved the fearsome Nazi foe, were a very brave breed indeed.   Long before D-Day, the men on the battle-fields and the family...

A Posing of the Dead, Past and Present…

2014-05-12T23:10:15.359-06:00

It’s been on my mind lately, how we are all shaped by our environment as we meander into adulthood…and how often our past is as cuff-links to our present, whether we like being cuffed or not. Such, to me, seems the plight, however great, however...

Oh, Christmas Tree…A MsBurb Ode To Spruced-Up Thee…

Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree How fond I am of your greenery. Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree Dom Perignon is well in me. Not only drunk I am when summer’s here, I raise a glass to Thee all year, Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh,...

These Eternal Epilogues…

2013-11-23T00:51:09.169-07:00

So much is being said right now on this oft discussed topic - online, on TV, in newsprint and in magazines, all the world over - that my meagre addition seems as if adding to the already over-loaded burden. I doubt that unless you live under a rock and...

The Serenity of Banff Park…And No Fish…

2013-07-17T17:47:41.557-06:00

There’s something to be said for having a quest, going on said quest and then having said quest not quite quenched. But something wonderful occurred in its place. Serenity. Fresh alpine air, snow-capped mountains, even in late Spring,...

And Then There Were Six…

2013-06-30T15:17:25.127-06:00

Tonight was my first Write Night and I was nervously excited, filled to the brim with “social science experiment” curiosity. The Calgary Writers Meet Up Group was hosting the 2nd in a series of three such nights; whereby, hackers like myself could go...

2013-07-03T15:13:26.306-06:00

Cripes… How could we be THAT dumb? Seriously… All I have to say in our naive Baby-Boomer Defence is that we “believed”, you know, we just KNEW Gilligan would get Us all off that island. If we watched, with utter devotion, from one week to the...

Why Men Cheat…

2013-06-30T13:51:11.506-06:00

Nifty title. Catchy, don’t you think? Alluring. Attractive…maybe even a wee bit Taboo…heck, that’s gotta be sexy, right?! And sadly not an original title from MsBurb. Months back, the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) had on it’s series,...

Un-cocked On Gun Control…

2013-03-08T15:37:02.234-07:00

You know… I started a post quite some time ago on the subject of Gun Control when Newtown hit the news but I just couldn’t finish it without rage confusing the issue. And now, well, maybe, especially now, after time has elapsed, that rage has...

NFL “Talent”…Now And Then…

2013-02-10T18:11:20.610-07:00

Now… I’m not one that should ever work in the daily journalism field, for when I see a pop-culture train wreck, I initially kind of go all literary deer-in-headlights and basically cannot muster a coherent comment for the cationic shock. I’m no...

2013-01-15T01:53:23.904-07:00

I hate that word. That key. “Enter”. With one push…….immense hurt can emanate. Both felt,, both thrust. Of course, in days gone by, the Stamp, the Telegraph Wire, hell, even the Stage Coach Wagon…a  fateful Deliverance. ...

Path To The Past…

2012-12-15T18:27:12.669-07:00

A crisp morning, a reddish dawn well after the storm, wind-swept sleet that finally rested as soft whipped cream snow, the type that if you even touched it, even for a moment, would melt as frosting will, having been beaten one minute past seven. I...

“So, Hey, Hi, haven’t seen you in here for a long time” she said to the man ordering a dark amber cocktail, who just entered the pub, his face, jacket and work pants soaking from the unforgiving sleet outside. “Yeah, I know”, he said back, head down,...

*Sigh*… “What’s wrong Peter Pumpkin, something got your gourd?” snickered Scotty Scarecrow. “Nah…I guess…well, it’s just…”, Peter Pumpkin tried to say, swallowing hard, mid-sentence, as if a big ol’ lump of pumpkin pulp got stuck in his throat. “Spit...

Luck Or God…Or Us?

2012-10-04T21:45:27.591-06:00

We want for things, always, and when they come to pass, we will say, “Boy, was I lucky!” or, “Boy, was God on my side.” And, of course, those of us who believe neither in Luck nor God, will say, “I worked hard for this, my hard work paid off, and now...
