Once summer rolls around, whether I’m aware or not, I have a penchant for hanging out the “Gone Fishing” sign...even though I’ve only once put an actual pole in the water with intent....

I’ve been AWOL, "Absent Without Laughs", these last 6 weeks, or so—in more ways than one—because things like that happen when life goes out of kilter.
Plus you tend to walk a little crooked and to one side.

May is full of potential.
Some even call it the "merry" month of May.
Really?
May-be...may-be-not....

Have you picked up my new book “The Kingdom of Keys”? No....what's up with that??? Better hurry before they're ALL GONE...which is a lie because they'll never be all gone...never.... So why not buy one just to reward my forthrightness..ness...ness? You might even enjoy it.

Incongruity aside, The Zombies Across the Street really do enjoy spring, probably more than any of the other seasons. In fact, they can’t wait to get out there and start digging...which can be disconcerting...for obvious reasons....

The Zombies across the street were out raking their lawn the other day—starting their spring cleanup—so I thought I'd amble over and see how they've been holding together...in more than the usual way you'd expect from the un-dead. They lost Grandpa Zombie a while back and since they're not used ...

The sagest advice I ever received was not to step in dog’s doo. 
So I tried my best to dog’s don’t on the doo...until I dog's did...and wished I dogs didn't....

Spring has sprung and Winter...well...Winter, we hardly knew ye....


#humor   #spring   #funny   #life   #humour  
Sure, with all its colorful blooms and promises of better days, most of us give Spring the benefit of the doubt...but there's a little of an “In Your Face” factor at play. And not just with Winter; no, Spring has been known to take on Summer, as well. It'll shoot temps into the 80's, ...

Once you past 60 you have the benefit of hindsight, which as they say is always 20-20... even if it requires a bi-focal correction for reading....

I’ve come to see, you have to consider life's disappointments and struggles as the cost of doing business.  So I just put it on my credit card and forget about it....

I'm pretty down on "That"...and, as you might expect, I have a lot to say about..."That"...that is.
Yeah...what's new about...well, you know....

#humor   #grammar   #that   #funny   #life   #humour  
I noticed it when I went back and re-edited some of my old manuscripts...I use “that”...way more than that deserves to be employed. In fact, in most cases, “that” isn't necessary at all. Unless it has its noun suit on. Then “that” is okay. That deserves a seat at the table.

I grew up reading comic books.
In fact I probably owe a great deal of my imagination to comic books. 
Which may or may not be a good thing.
But I like to think it is....

Z told me we lost an hour the other day and ever since I’ve been going nuts trying to find it.
Because, you know, I usually get blamed for these kinds of things....


#humor   #daylightsavingtime   #funny   #life   #humour  
Z suggested all I had to do was turn the clocks ahead to make up for the missing hour, and then I'd be back on schedule...or as close to schedule as I ever am. Yeah...nice try. Like that would work. Like I'm gonna go around resetting every clock in the world. Like I have time for that.

Something To Laugh About…sometimes
Introduction
I’m a freelance, corporate writer/director/ producer, which means—besides the many slashes—I create everything from promotional, instructional and training videos to interactive on line presentations for various corporation and health care companies. In that sense I guess you could say that I’m a “professional writer” since I do get paid to write, work from home and have lots of free time to myself. However, most of my friends and neighbors think I’m retired. Naturally, being a freelance writer who deals with the sometimes insanity of the corporate world from the safety of the creative fringe, my views will more often than not be tinged with cynicism, sarcasm and a fair share of self-deprecation. I hope you enjoy them in the spirit in which they are intended….
