Born in 1952 (you do the math), making me one of the proverbial "old farts" involved in toys, comic books, and other juvenile activities that everyone said I should have outgrown decades ago. Fortunately, my wife of 36 years is an understanding soul. A firm believer in the philosophy of Groucho Marx, George Carlin, Robin Williams and Chris Rock. Am now indoctrinating my grandchildren to carry on so that when I finally fade away there will be another generation of odd neighbors who seemed nice and kept to themselves.

Little men. I can still hear my dad and mom’s voices calling my toy soldiers that in my mind. Usually it was in some derogatory sentence such as “ pick up all these damned little men”, or some really good expletive followed by “little men” when someone stepped on one in the night going to…

Labor day weekend is upon us and as another summer fades into memory it makes me recall my own youth. The days before action figures and computer games. When the only theme parks in the world were Disneyland and Tivoli Gardens and I’d never been to either one. So kids had to make up their…

Long before the advent of the internet and personal computers, APAs were a way…

Yesterday President Obama observed Memorial Day in the tradition of sitting U.S. presidents, by placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery just outside Washington, D.C. Before the ceremony, a number of university professors petitioned the White House, urging Obama “to end a longstanding practice of sending a wreath to…

  A letter from the Clerk of the Court of Okmulgee County arrived saying I was being summoned for jury duty on March 3rd. Ended up on a civil case where a young man was terminated because he hired an attorney to handle his worker’s compensation claim when his employer violated state law and didn’t…

Wow, this was a fun job this time.  Can you feel my sarcasm?  It seems the gods of Lost or the gods of weather are not happy with Oklahoma of late.  For the last three weeks every Thursday night we’ve had severe weather that has threated the airing of the program.  Last Thursday, we had…

Here is my latest summary on LOST.  If you have not seen the episode yet, then don’t read any further.  If you have and want to see what I had to say, please indulge! WARNING: SPOILERS!

Finally, the show that demonstrates that I am nothing more than a Lemming running towards the cliff returns.  Thank the TV gods!  But I’m not really going to talk about the upcoming episode.  No.  Instead I’m going to share some of my brilliant insight on a hot button topic on LOST, namely who’s eye was…

My daughter-in-law, Shannon, ships out a week from today for her second tour of duty in Iraq.  She will be gone for 15 months.  She is a medic with the 101st out of Fort Campbell in Kentucky and I cannot express my pride and respect that I have for her.  While she is in harm’s…

Boy howdy!  I’m as excited as Jessie, Bullseye and Prospector Pete when Sheriff Woody showed up!   After seeing the first pictures from New York Comic Convention and then reading Cantania Dan’s Blog I though I should do a back flip for joy!  Unfortunately, Medicaid doesn’t cover such stunts, so I must content myself with…

It appears that Captain Action will be returning  as an action figure again!  Most of you probably only vaguely  remember him.  But, being the old fart that I am, I have fond memories of the good Captain.   Ideal came out with the Captain Action doll/action figure and his sidekick, Action Boy in direct competition…
