Everyday Life

Maybe I’ll Just Fiddle with It.

7 June, 2013 Ken Everyday Life

I felt a growing anticipation as I neared the mall. A brother arranged it because I didn’t have the money at the time a few weeks earlier — it was a salew of the day. When I got there I had to unzip her — if it was a her — like a new mother […]

(Not) The Last Year

22 December, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

The Mayans didn’t see it coming, and neither did I. I had a mid-life crisis (sort of, I think), and a record year in Kentropolis. I have a phone that is practically a tri-corder, a new kitten (very possibly the cutest in the world, and the reincarnation of LadyBug), and wearing a tuxedo on a […]

I said it would change my life.

5 October, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEditorial & DiscussionEveryday Life

What I did cannot be accurately described as “buying a phone”.  In fact, I played with my Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket (S2) for several hours before thinking maybe I should use my “device” for calling someone.  In one fell swoop, I Freecycled my old phone, returned Bob’s camera on loan to me since who-knows-when, and retired my voice recorder.

Productive!

12 August, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeParkviewPhotography

The last couple weeks I’ve gotten a lot of stuff done — doing projects one after another, checking off house chore lists, and tonight I reached the rare goal of an empty Outlook inbox.  However, I had to cancel a service day for Earth 2 Mouth because I didn’t get around to coordinating it early […]

Lottery Woes

7 July, 2012 Ken Editorial & DiscussionEveryday Life

Last Monday, I won two games of pool in a row (out of three) against one of the best pool players at the VA Recovery Center.  I joked that I should buy a lottery ticket.  Well, not really — later that day I did.  If it was my lucky day, though, it may be irrelevant as […]

Star Wars Night at the Bison’s 2012

24 June, 2012 Ken Everyday Life

I’ve always wanted to be in with the show on-field, but could never commit to all the practices and rehearsals.  Well, behold!  The Universe found a way!  About a week before, I was asked if I could stand in as a “captured Jedi”, went to a rehearsal, and ended up on field! It was an […]

Too Many Commitments?

16 June, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalParkviewWoodworking & Other Projects

Now might not have been the best time to start a block club.  I already accepted the position of [[Tyler (Masonic)|Tyler]] at the Lodge, and although it does not involve duties beyond being a doorman at meetings, it further ensures I must be there at nearly all functions.  AND I now belong to the [[Order […]

What’s been going on? Nothing much? Much.

16 June, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

When people ask what I’ve been up to, I sometimes have the knee-jerk response of “nothing much” or “I’ve been busy” but neither describes this year. There are just so many different things going on. They shot my (three) scenes for a new movie I’ll be starring in called “Brandonwood”, a full-length drama that at […]

Not Quite a Spring

9 April, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

I hear the sound of lawn mowers, interspersed with the silence of snow, putting on a scarf to scurry beneath the blazing sun, birds chirping but bitter wind blowing.  The color is heavy green without the accompanying smells of what nature intimates to be the season.  And I do not know if I really want to be […]

Our First Greehouse … In My Office

31 March, 2012 Ken Everyday LifeParkview

Merry found a great deal on a covered, 4-shelf rack greenhouse.  I immediately went out and got it (at Big Lots), along with some potting soil.  We went through our seeds and bought some others — we’re starting tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, and various other flowers, some of which we will use at the cemetery in […]
