Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy

Taking a break from politics for a moment in an attempt to describe the alternate universe that the lovely Missus and I entered into last night.  I don’t even know where to start. There is a church a couple blocks away from our house and they held a fundraising, meat raffle last night.  For some […]

From The Hip

I left your house this morning, ‘Bout a quarter after nine. Coulda been the Willie Nelson, Coulda been the wine When I left your house this morning, It was a little after nine It was in Bobcaygeon, I saw the constellations Reveal themselves, one star at time Drove back to town this morning, With working […]

Pigs
