My Cave My View

MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am sitting here eating a donut and thinking that it is about time that I lose some weight for the annual 24h of July celebration.   Nothing motivates me to lose five pounds like the annual stroll in the park.  The annual 24th-stroll has caused more people to lose...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I just finished driving 850 miles so that I could be by Turbo’s side when he was put to sleep.  There are few people that have liked me and stuck by me as much as Turbo.  He used to run with me; then he and I slowed down some and we could only go for a walk, lately, he...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I just had a Pepsi and pulled pork pig sandwich in Culdesac, ID at Shebang Days 2010, where the motto is Going Hog Wild. The mascot is a porker, and the population is 387… minus the former mascot. My too kind and loving wife is grossed out because there is a young...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres With the recent drop in temperatures and new snow I am reminded that cold and hot are relative terms.  One man’s hot day is another woman’s cold day.  Cold is when my too kind and loving wife slides her feet over under the covers and touches me in the...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres In an unexpected announcement today, the Bubba Fan Club has announced that our very own CaveGuy wins the prestigious “NoBull Piece Prize”.  This was announced in time to parallel the presentation of the Nobel Peace Prize which President Obama won for his...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres Well, we finally took Daniel to college and we are now officially “empty-nesters”.  The reality of that did not really sink in until we went to the store and we actually bought a quart of milk.  Before, when we had kids at home, we could have brought home...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I keep learning things about myself; not all of which I like.  For example, I went to the nursery for some plants the other day and for the first time in my life when I considered purchasing a tree, I stopped to consider that there was a good chance that...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I believe it was Pippi Longstocking that said, “Time flies, and one begins to grow old.  This autumn I’ll be ten, and then I guess I’ll have seen my best days.”  Three graduations later, one wedding, and a 50th anniversary party have kept me out of...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres My too kind and loving wife had to leave town to attend a seminar for a few days.  So she sorta left me in charge.  Well, mostly I was in charge.  She looks back and forth at Daniel and me to decide which of us to leave as the designated adult.  She looks...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres The headline read, “When we multitask, we get stupid.”  My too kind and loving wife looks up over her glasses and asks, “Have you been multitasking more than usual honey?”  I don’t stop what I am doing, but continue to spin my pen, tap my foot, click-...
