My Cave My View

MY CAVE, MY VIEW It is not every day that I decide to go for a hike carrying a 40-pound pack and bring my too kind and loving wife along with her very own 35-pound pack.  Most people thought that carrying a pack should come natural to me; as many have called me a beast of burden.  I don...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am not sure what made me do it.  I can usually count on my too kind and loving wife to have some common sense when it comes to my youthful uncontrolled exuberance to do something stupid.  But, she was nowhere to be found or at least her motherly instincts for...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW Well it is finally done. I say done, but I mean finished. My too kind loving wife always points that out when the bread is baked, it is then done; but a task or work is finished. I don’t get a lot of work finished; but I do like baked bread. So like I said it is done. I...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am eavesdropping on a young married couple during church.  When the young woman asks her newly acquired husband, “Don’t you think it is time we start a family?”  She crinkles her nose and bats her eyelashes.  My first thought was, “Here?  Now?”  But, I get a hold of...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW My too kind and loving wife and I are driving along and I am singing to my Hits of the ‘70s when all of sudden a Subaru with a CoExist sticker cuts me off.  I wave at her with one finger and mutter a couple of four letter words that I am not allowed to use around my too...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW If you are reading this and driving, you are distracted.  As crazy as that sounds, that is exactly what many people are doing, only they are using their phones to type and read.  It sounds kind of crazy when you say it like that…hmmm…typing and reading and driving.  Duh...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW Well the Pioneer Day celebration in Monticello is over and I guess we can all take a collective sigh of relief as we quit trying to hold our stomachs in, stand up straight, and look ten years younger than we are.  That stroll in the park after the parade is tough on an...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW Howdy folks.  I bet you are surprised to see this newspaper article.  Well, like an old long lost relative that shows up when you win the lottery, I just keep on coming back.  I have been busy. I am working down in Farmington, New Mexico.  In the last four years, I have...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am driving down to the Moab Five Mile Race and I ask my too kind and loving wife if she brought my breakfast burrito.  The incongruous nature of my actions; eating a breakfast burrito and running, seems odd and I don’t know if it is because I have matured as a human...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW Someone asked me the other day if I was happy.  My first reaction was to say “of course I am happy”; as it seems that 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 counselor,...
