My Cave My View

With all this recent snow, we are going to need to discuss the size of your snow removal equipment.  I wouldn’t normally want to talk about the size of your equipment; but with the quantity and weight of the snow, well…size matters.  When I was in college we wuz so poor we couldn’t afford a shovel...
Well it seems like we are going to have to talk about what came first, the chicken or the egg.  I bring this up because eggs are getting pretty expensive these days.  I went to buy a dozen eggs and the clerk wanted to charge me $6.29.  I said, “Excuse me miss, I think there must be some mistake.” ...
It is the new year and I feel like I need to make some resolutions.  Maybe I should just use last year’s since they would pretty much be the same; which as it turns out are pretty much the same as the last 40 years.  Truthfully, I haven’t been able to mark any off my list.  Sure, I have to change...
Like most grandparents these days, we have had the opportunity for one of our kids and four grandkids to move back in with us for a short time.  I call that Parenting 2.0.    Of course, I am thrilled to have them for a short time.  But suddenly we have found our house back into full blown chaos,...
My too kind and loving wife said that it is the holiday season, and I should be happy.  My first reaction was to say bah-humbug, mind your own business.  There is a good deal of pressure in America to be happy.  If you are not happy, then by golly you better get happy.  If you must, go see a...
“What we have here is a failure to communicate.”  Some of life’s best advice comes from movies like Cool Hand Luke.  I am in the communication business, but I am having a harder time understanding what people are saying to me and I don’t know if it’s my hearing or I am just getting dumber because I...
To really understand your parents, you must raise your own children. When we are young, we love our parents, we get a little older and we are certain they know nothing about being a teenager, judge them harshly, and refuse to listen to them. Eventually, we grow up and realize the sacrifices they...
Recently, the National Geographic called Utah out as the best place in the world for adventure destinations.  Most residents of Utah already know this and that is at least some of the reason we live here. Utah has much to brag about; Arches, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Zion — and...
Mark Twain said, “Let us live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.” As I get older, death becomes more real and personal. When I was in college many years ago and my grandfather died, he was the first person that I really “knew’ that had passed on. Now I have experienced...

One benefit of being married to my too kind and loving wife is that she is a “Hole-in-the-Rocker”. Her great grandfather Benjamin Perkins helped blast a passageway known as Hole-in-the-Rock. I would like to see them get a permit from the BLM for that now. I am guessing there would be some...
