Defying Death, Hell and High Water—the Wendy’s Bunch Reloads

It’s been a spell since I updated my readers on the Wendy’s breakfast bunch and their goings-on, so I decided to take this occasion to make amends. The Mission “weed patch” to the east of the Wendy’s location still flagrantly displays its green glory, all efforts at revitalizing the construction project having so far slid […]

“Bad Brain Bats!!!!”

Many thoughts Fly through your Head, from Time you’re Born until you’re Dead. Disease’s I would Like to Stall, the Ones when there’s No Thoughts at All.

Lent

 

I went to church today, Ash Wednesday, with my mother. We arrived on time and I said hello and shook hands with Mike, the usher usually stationed on the east side of the church. We took our place in the last pew of the front section of the church, prayed the Confitor, listened […]

Had a Colonoscopy
