My Cave My View

Well it was a sad day when Eddie Van Halen passed on; his virtuoso guitar playing made him a Rock God to those who believed in Rock and Roll. His name along with Hendrix, Joe Walsh, and Eric Clapton inspired thousands of teenagers to save their money and buy their first guitar. I was one of those...
Okay, I am on another adventure with the in-laws camping at Maroon Bells in Colorado. We call it camping, but it is nothing close to how I used to camp. Apparently what I do now is called glamping and I’m not even sure if it’s legal in Utah. Since this COVID thing hit and people have been locked...
Oh yes, fall is in the air. Football lights, cross country meets, volleyball tournaments, pumpkins blushing orange, and cooling temperatures when the sun goes down.  Kids going back to school in new clothes with their backpacks full of essential school stuff like facemasks, hand sanitizer, non-...
I had a fever, and I had lost my sense of taste. It wasn’t sounding good to my overactive-hypochondriac-personality disorder, which I have honed over the years to catch nearly every fatal disease that comes around. Turns out, with the help of Web-MD and my medical degree I got from the back of my...
I am about to enjoy my $500 strawberry. You might ask, “What idiot would pay $500 for one strawberry?” Well let me tell you, if you looked high and low you wouldn’t probably find more than a handful of people dumb enough to pay $500 for one strawberry, but if you come to my house, knock on the...
Day 27 of COVID19 Quarantine. The madness has begun. Sure, initially I felt like I had won the lottery. I was working from home – my dream job. But now I’m not so sure. I found out that there’s a woman who lives in my house; she says she’s my wife and she thinks she’s the boss of everything. I...
Well, I snuck back into town last week; I barely caught the last flight out of D.C. I have been responsibly self-quarantining and have only left the house a few times. This time at home was fortunate since I was able to catch up on reading my stacks of old San Juan Records. I left my house once to...
Mark Twain said, “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of congress; but then I repeat myself.”   Well my too-kind and loving wife says, “Suppose you were an idiot, or suppose you let them talk you into going to Washington D.C. again; but then I repeat myself.” Last week I was on...
There are times in a person’s life when it is just obvious that we are witnessing history. That time is now, and I am not referring to the impending impeachment trial.   For the first time in history the infamous words “Ok Boomer!” were uttered in a hearing before the Supreme Court.   When our...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I must be getting old because I am starting to do things that I can’t really explain.  For example, lately while sitting waiting for my too kind and loving wife I find myself cleaning my ear with a key.  I don’t know why I do this, except I know that my...
