I’ll Get To It Later

I’ll Get To It Later And that’s what I told myself.  Because, I DID intend to get to it later.  The leak got worse.  Going up there to look after it was going to be a task that would interrupt my fun on Saturday, my football game on Sunday.  Or interrupt the other tasks that …

Are We FOR, or AGAINST Drugs?

      I need this clarified. Last week, yet another person (who doesn’t really know me) has recommended that I watch the cable tv show, “Snowfall”.  For the unfamiliar, the show is described by the FX network as “A young street entrepreneur, a Mexican wrestler, a CIA operative, a drug-running couple and other characters …
