One of the great things about our fabulous city is the thickness of the air in February.  You can almost taste the humidity in this photo, shot early on a February day.

Leon Redbone Meets Leon Redbone

Posted on Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Leon Redbone is a lunatic. A wonderful, wonderful lunatic. I have enjoyed Leon Redbone since I was a kid. I suspect the first time I saw him was in the 1970′s on SNL. His unique voice combined with his very apparent humor and fashion sense have always made for an entertaining presentation. Recently, my wife [...]

Yard of the Month

Posted on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

The group was silent, staring down at the new foot. Mr. Lee, Junior, Sue, and Little Junior, standing in a circle, eyes cast downward, would have appeared to be praying from anyone looking in the big window of Mr. Lee’s Prosthetic shop. “It looks colored,” Junior’s voice was barely audible. “What?” Mr. Lee asked. “The [...]

The New Zodiac!

Posted on Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Some joker in Minnesota announced this week that the dates of the astrological birth signs has changed. And, while he was at it, he added another sign. Parke Kunkle with the Minnesota Planetarium Society (and an astronomy instructor at a community college) announced that due to a wobbly earth, the signs have to be adjusted. [...]

Posted on Monday, January 17th, 2011

That last half of August the part of me I don’t admit to the tyrant I didn’t even know was in there set up shop (I worked on commission) and I think it’s fair to call it a shop of sweat and tears and blood eventually after I had put my handprints in the dust [...]

The Fat Man and his Dog Pt. 10 – Goodbye

Posted on Monday, November 8th, 2010

The boy woke with the dawn sun bright eyed and excited.  He checked over the bag he had packed the night before for any forgotten essentials.  Convinced he had packed everything he would need, he slipped the bag back into its hidey hole beneath the bed.  He took a final look around his bedroom, then [...]

The Fat Man and his Dog Pt. 9 – Fight, Might and a Little Bit of Insight

Posted on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

The dog snarled like a hound of hell, haunches raised which caused the fur along his spine to rise up in a mighty stripe.  Dripping fangs born towards his prey helped finish the image.  He circled the small boy before him, each step calculated and exact to keep him within attacking position. The boy stood [...]

The Fat Man and his Dog Pt. 8 – Lessons to be Learned

Posted on Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

“Come on now boy, no time for lazing about now, there’s crops to bring in!”  The Fat Man’s voice bubbled with orneriness and annoyance as he passed by.  On his left shoulder he carried a bale of corn stalks, with his right hand he reached out and clouted the boy upon the back of his [...]

Maybe you have seen the signs around town -Charlotte Bergmann Can Win. It is so great to see Republican political campaigns catch up with their overall commitment to mediocrity.  Charlotte Bergmann Can Win is absolutely the least they can say about her. It’s non-committal, vague, and in no way speaks to her values, morals, experience or person. [...]

The Fat Man and his Dog Pt. 6 – Witchery, Confusion and Crops

Posted on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

The young boy sat upon the floor cradling his unconscious father upon his lap.  Fear consumed his features as he took in the brutish man standing upon his doorstep within the ruins of the entryway. He glanced over to see Dog sitting to the side looking at the man with a quizzical cock of his [...]
