Happy Birthday to Steve, aka Stvee, my artist bud!

My friend Steve Bryant’s birthday is always a bright spot in the dog days of August, or for the younger crowd, when they have to return to prison (aka school). Things appear to be looking good for him. He had … Continue reading

A lot of good stuff coming down the line but I was recently delayed due other matters getting in the way on Friday and then battling a cold on Saturday. At least I recovered enough to attend my friend’s D&D … Continue reading

One TXDoT crisis resolved

We had been receiving annoying letters from TXDoT over the last few months about unpaid tolls…gotta’ love the flawless automation and outsourcing the Texas Lege went with. Often the statement was vague since toll authorities are much like the IRS, … Continue reading

RIP Yvonne Craig

The woman who will always be the definition of Batgirl passed away Monday from cancer. Craig was never a major star, usually cast in supporting or guest roles but when she appeared in Star Trek she was memorable as the Orion mental … Continue reading

Weird Science: 30th Anniversary Quote-along!

Back to the Future was the big movie of 1985, possibly of the Eighties, but Weird Science was and has always been my personal favorite for that particular year. Better Off Dead is a close second, it falls behind because it didn’t make it … Continue reading

Our Man in Charleston by Christopher Dickey

My first book from the Pflugerville Public Library! Visiting the place has been one of the good discoveries during my Summer journey. I’ve lived at my house for almost 14 years and never checked out the joint. During the initial trip … Continue reading

Get away from the Alamo you bitch!

Alamo Slaughter had this cargo loader from Aliens in the lobby. I didn’t check to see if it’s the real thing or a replica. Either way, looks pretty close to what I remember.

Tiki pondering their return

The cat with some serious lungs is hanging out where nobody can easily pet him, staring into space, maybe hoping to catch his humans’ plane on its approach. Nah. Probably watching all those birds, lizards and squirrels who taunt him … Continue reading

Angel trying to live up to his name’s rep

Normally this giant furball (he’s often pretty sweet except during baths and medication) prefers to sleep on the grand digital piano. Recently I spotted him by my friend’s classical (or is it concert-hall) harp. I like how he mews for … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Hunter!

Today is the big 1-6 for the oldest of the Aaron n’ Anje set (I went by alphabetical order, not gender). I wonder if he’s eligible to drive in Qatar via their laws/rules or maybe he can have an international … Continue reading

Those of us in certain Nerd and/or Snob Circles may often ask each other, “What’s your favorite BritCom?” I think the frequent answers are Red Dwarf, Fawlty Towers, Black Adder, Absolutely Fabulous, Coupling and Monty Python’s Flying Circus…the latter is more … Continue reading

Light issues, somewhat solved!

I should’ve hit Specs (the local liquor store chain) sooner. They always have an armada of free boxes. Now I can take pictures/movies under consistent lighting conditions.
