Paris, Not Paris


P aris, France. Paris, Texas. There are 48 places named Paris in the world. I’d list them but you’d either get bored or crazy. There is this one. Paris on Las Vegas Boulevard, or as it is commonly called The Strip. This Paris is a casino, hotel and underground shopping mall that is designed andContinue reading “Paris, Not Paris”

On Independence Day


W e’d like to celebrate today. But, we can’t. We won’t. The United States Supreme Court radically overhauled America in just two weeks. We don’t recognize what we once were. For sure, plenty of people are protesting, planning emergency rescues and some are even leaving the country. That won’t change much. Change will only happenContinue reading “On Independence Day”

Angles


S unday. The middle day of a so-called long weekend. I have almost no idea of what to write. I really haven’t paid attention to the news, except for baseball. That’s very intentional. Everyone needs a break from what has become madness. Baseball is life. The season is so long that there are ups andContinue reading “Angles”

The Long Weekend


T his is a big holiday weekend. The Fourth of July celebrates the founding of The United States. After all of the Less-Than-Supreme-Court has done in the past two weeks I’m in no mood to celebrate. After talking to a number of our friends I know that they feel the same way. Hopefully, our neighborsContinue reading “The Long Weekend”

It Never Ends


L et’s be clear. Yesterday sucked. Again. What do I care about most since I consider it to be the foundation of everything else? The environment. What did The-Less-Than-Supreme-Court do yesterday? They shut down the EPA. The Environmental Protection Agency. What the hell are these faux judges trying to do? Some people say with allContinue reading “It Never Ends”

Everything Changes


E verything changes. Yes, it does. I was reading another blog called World Nomad News. Their magazine is called Get Lost at emag.getlostmagazine.com They are a much bigger than Storyteller. They usually suggest places to travel to and what to do when you get there. I think they publish monthly, mostly because the site isContinue reading “Everything Changes”

Long Road Out Of There


R oad Trips. Road Trips are essential if you want to stay sane, at least for me and a lot of my friends. Kindred spirits you know. I have been to Virginia a couple of times for business. But, we avoided every possible person which wasn’t a lot of fun. I’ll show you why eventually.Continue reading “Long Road Out Of There”

Hey Mister Spaceman


O ut on the road, heading to Reno and Fernley, Nevada, for Thanksgiving. We were going to Reno for Thanksgiving with my extended family who live there. Traveling to Fernley was to visit the National Cemetery and my parents grave sites. The National Cemetery is a dedicated site that sits on high desert land. TheContinue reading “Hey Mister Spaceman”

Raindrops And Stuff


One of my road trips during the PAD days was to Reno, Nevada. There is a story behind this adventure which I’ll tell in a bit. I drove from Albuquerque through Las Vegas and north on state route 95. I stopped along the way. I turned a two day trip into three. I made aContinue reading “Raindrops And Stuff”
