Bar Stools

2 July, 2019 Ken Everyday Life

A couple on Freecycle asked for bar stools and I had three of them. I had two in the attic with cushions that they took and still have one plain wooden one in the basement. I accumulated them over the years by scavenging trash pickup day in the notion I would use them for a […]

The “Second Half”

12 May, 2019 Ken Business & WorkChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalGames & GamingParkview

Working up to my 50th birthday, I decided to stop digitizing the rest of my old files — if anything was that important, I would have done it by now. It’s not a lot, just enough to add to the filing cabinet, which uses far less drawers worth of stuff than it used to. Between […]

My Prejudice of Good Faith

7 May, 2019 Ken Everyday Life

I’ve come face to face with myself many times this year, realizing my prejudices regarding those things I see in other people. For example, I value contrasting opinions, and so often spend too much time second-guessing what everyone knows in favor of what one person may feel. Not all agreeable counsel is good, of course.

Cemetery Tribute

21 January, 2019 Ken Family & PersonalUncategorized

{Sent to my step-family in Arizona to read at the graveside service for my Father} My feelings and admiration for my Father have never been a secret kept from him or anyone. There was never a time when he wasn’t my hero, my role model as a human being, a man, and a husband and […]

Dad, a New Life

21 January, 2019 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

It’s been over a month, but I still don’t know where to start. So many things. So many feelings. My Father passed into Eternity, and my faith and memory of him brings me a peace in this, but it’s still hard, so hard. I have to keep reminding myself that Jesus wept, too. Anyone who […]

A Whole Year Passes

5 November, 2018 Ken Everyday Life

Have I been THAT busy? I spent most of this time preparing for and dealing with the responsibilities as Master of a Lodge. “I’ve sold my soul to the company store.” But I will write about that elsewhere. I started the Amorphous Publishing Guild — dba papers, bank account, bought a batch of ISBNs, and […]

Our Pumpkin Patch

27 November, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Merry wanted to be married in a pumpkin patch, but we just couldn’t pull it off. I wanted a traditional Christian priest, but the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t perform outdoor weddings without a dispensation. I called the Episcopal diocese, then Greek Orthodox (where I had friends), Russian orthodox, and possibly a few others, but their […]

Letchworth

11 October, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Letchworth I remember as a child old black-and-white movie reels projected on a wall. One of them was footage of a trip taken by my parents and grandparents to Letchworth State Park. I always meant to go ther some time with Merry and finally got the chance. Earlier this year, a reunited friend from high […]

Of Bits and Books

14 August, 2017 Ken Editorial & Discussion

When asked if I prefer books or ebooks, my response was thus given: If I merely want the knowledge, digital is fine. But if I want the EXPERIENCE of reading, the physical media is part of the content. I use digital media to keep up on countless fields, but if it’s something that I want […]

I Love Lyft

4 August, 2017 Ken Business & WorkEveryday Life

I’ve always been the DD or the guy people call for a ride. I love driving and love people. I have spare time, or like an excuse to get away from the computer screen. Ridesharing was a no-brainer. And Christina said I would be good at it. And I think I am. A few weeks […]
