Once again, I am at a loss of words. This time, I am suffering from “May Writer’s Block”. Next to June, May is my favorite month of the year. The winter chill is over, and the oppressive heat of summer is still a couple of months away. Flowers are blooming in the neighborhood gardens. Talking […]

The sound of a bugle, the garland of roses, the chirps of cardinals, the smell of fresh manure and even fresher bourbon, the bacchanalian antics of drunk partygoers, the curses of thousands of broken down gamblers betting their last two dollars on two-bit colts limping off to the glue factory–it’s Kentucky Derby time! One question […]

A couple of days ago, my great friend, Al Tureeegogh, stopped by my place and asked me a bunch of questions. In this post, I will try to answer a few of them: 1. Are you glad spring has finally come? Of course. This past winter was long and unusually cold–I froze my gluteus maximus […]

February is over. Yahoo. This past February had been one lousy month for me. I had to spend $800 for car repairs thanks to a busted alternator and another $200 to patch up my driveway. As usual, the weather has been relentlessly awful. About the only time I got out of the house was when […]

Sometimes, it’s good to be a man, especially on the unofficial National Man Day–i.e., Super Bowl Sunday. But what if you are someone of the masculine gender who doesn’t give a whit about the Super Bowl? Unfortunately, I am suffering from that particular predicament. I really don’t care if the Los Angeles Rams or the […]

Since I don’t know what I want to write, I am going to do something I haven’t done in a long time–a Boo/Yahoo post! The government shutdown: Super boo. I just wish it was over. It is a sterling example on why I have such disgust towards the miscreants tramps and thieves MFers politicians in […]

It’s that special time of the year! Not only is it the last post of the year, it’s time to hand out the annual Joeys! I created the Joeys in 2011 to present awards in categories not normally seen in the “best of” lists in newspapers and magazines. There are no monetary compensation, medals, or […]

Due to technical difficulties beyond my control, I didn’t have the Internet last week at the Ordinary Joe domicile. That’s okay–I had another bout with writer’s block, and my post was pretty forgettable. I missed not having the Internet. I use the Internet in so many ways from keeping up with current events to listening […]

Hey, Hey, holy mackerel! Cubs lose! Cubs lose! Last week, I wrote that it was no fun being a Chicago Cub fan anymore because the Boys of Wrigley Field have become an excellent team. Well, this week the Cubs played like the diamond doofuses that I grew to know and laugh as they lost two […]

Drats–I won’t be going to Scandinavia this year. Recently, I read a story which stated the Nobel committee won’t be awarding a prize in literature in 2018. However, two prizes will be handed out next year. I know I will have a better chance winning the Powerball or visiting Jupiter than winning a Nobel prize. […]
