Here’s another tale from the Nick Happens file. I have always thought of myself as a man of the world. As a kid we moved around a lot and I was exposed to all kinds of people and their peculiarities. A few weeks after I graduated from high school, I was wearing a green uniform […]

After all of the bad weather we had on Thursday, Friday dawned with blue skies and chilly temperatures. And wind. Lots of wind. But that’s okay, we weren’t driving an RV anywhere so we didn’t have to worry about that too much. It was a very busy day for us. It started out with somebody […]

Strong storms raged over Central Florida for much of the day yesterday, with high winds, hail, rain coming down in buckets, and reports of a couple of tornadoes. Some areas got more than their total normal December rainfall in just a few hours. Yeah, it got scary for a while. Sometime around noon our weather […]

It seemed like I was busy all day yesterday, but at the same time it didn’t seem like I accomplished anything at all. Some days are like that, I guess. I started the day wading through a bunch of emails. Several of them wanted information that I didn’t know off the top of my head […]

I saw a news story the other day saying that many radio stations across the country have bowed to demands by the #Me Too movement not to play the Christmas classic song Baby, It’s Cold Outside, which has been a holiday favorite since 1944. According to those who object to the song, its lyrics encourage […]

She was born into extreme poverty and suffered abuse and hardship as a child, but she proved that if you set a goal and work hard enough, you can overcome anything. In her day, Annie Oakley was one of the most famous women in the world and America’s sweetheart, celebrated in books and film, and […]

I have been walking a mile a day on my treadmill, trying to get at least a little bit of exercise to help overcome my pretty much sedentary lifestyle. I don’t think I’m ever going to be skinny, but I would sure like to shed enough pounds get down to just being fat instead of […]

We hit the ground running yesterday morning and were on the go all day long, getting back late in the evening, so this is going to be a short blog today. Yesterday we drove into Daytona Beach and picked up some more cannabis oil at Surterra, the medical marijuana dispensary. In yesterday’s blog I said […]

I spent most of yesterday dealing with computer issues. I started out deleting any personal files from my old Asus old laptop, which is going to a good home, and getting it boxed up and ready to ship out. As I said a couple of days ago in a blog titled Frustration City, when I […]

Frustration City

My driver’s license may say I live in Edgewater, Florida, but yesterday I felt like I spent much of the day in Frustration City. That’s not a pleasant place to be, and I’m not a pleasant person to be around when I’m stuck there. The day started off on a bad note when I stepped […]
