Passionate Tennis

 Well, I was bummed that Melons was not at the tennis club today (Saturday). I took a lot of my frustrations out on the ball and played really well.  I know my whole view of life is kind of crazy, but it always has been, I am me. My attraction to...

Plants Need Watering

 It is a small thing.  I just noticed in our sun/living room that all the plants, about half of what we had a year ago, were all drooping from lack of water.  I stopped and watered them, something I want to remember to do, but somehow miss in this mad...

Selling a Dream for $300

My wife volunteered today, I was the driver. First, I took her to Ditzy dolls in Bel Air this morning.  They were decorating a tree with dolls they had made.  The tree will be auctioned tomorrow with many others to raise money for cancer.  Julie had...

Call from Melons

My pulse goes up to about 140 when the phone rings and I see it is the racket club.  I run downstairs and take the call.  And it is Melons!!!   Hallelujah.  I am like a young kid again.  I dare not say out loud what I am thinking that I am feeling....

What makes something right or wrong?

Consider an action or belief, what makes it right or wrong? Can an action be judged to be inherently good based on the results produced by the action?

Games with Judy, Chapter 2

Chapter 2, The Anti-Climax At the bar she was lucky, or perhaps I was the lucky one, there were no chairs. She had two more drinks as we waited for a opening at the restaurant. I was finally able to calm down for the first time in two hours....

Let Them Eat Cake, edited 2

 About 1 billion people live on less than a $1 per day, and most don't know where tomorrow's meal is coming from, or even today's. My mom had a rule for us growing up.  If we ate in front of someone, we gave them half of what we had to eat.  If...

Betha, Melons, Dreams

When I first came back from my vacation to SC & NC, all I could think about, except for a few great tennis shots of course (one cross court forehand in particular), was Betha. I'm sure I still love her, but what bothers me is her health. She has...

Clearing a MisUnderstanding

When I came off the courts yesterday, I said to a small group at the front desk after two hours of tennis, "I'm only good for an hour and a half" referring to the drop off in my game toward the end of the match. Melons, eye ball to eye ball...

Stuck in the Mellon

I know its silly, being stuck in a thought pattern.  I hate it and I don't at the same time. I am still adapting, it has only been a few hours since I found out that Melons IS HERE.  Melons, I will adapt and be okay.  I don't feel any judgment...

Games with Judy

Games with Judy Chapter 1, The Rules In the days of old, I had a girl friend, Judy, that indulged my fantasies when it came to playing sensual games. Most women when I asked them to play some game I dreamed up, she looked at me as if I were...

Melons Are Ripe

Melons Are Ripe Whow, just when I was ready to write off my chances, the soft voice of Melons shocked me. She confessed that she had been reading my blog since I first gave her the web address. It was a nice moment, it took me completely off...

Melons, a letter to you ....

Melons, I hope one day you are reading this small note to you.  Of course, I only know you from small pieces that you share with me when we banter.  But, the person I see I really, really like.  I would really like to get to know you better to...

Melancholy Sunday

Day started out paying medical bills about 8 am.  Trying to move around to make up for the fact that the pharmacy put my wife's tykerb, $3500, on my bank debit card instead of the credit card.  Either way the ship is sinking, but with my way I at least...

Social Entrepreneur

I was sent this story, Part 1,  from a friend. Its a good story, but perhaps only part of a more complicated story. The story does illustrate that people do care about their fellow Americans, which is good, but not quite enough. Imagine from One...
