7th Anniversary Post

May 18, 2018


Just noticed that today is the Mt. St. Helens explosion anniversary. We got ash on our car in Rye, NH when that happened. And, no this has nothing to do with my blog. As I look back at 2018 it seems like I’ve been doing nothing but writing, yet despite my usual annual push to […]

Fishing and Drinking

May 17, 2018


First published as How to Drink Your Way Through a Fishing Day, Hatch Magazine 12/28/17 The ironic thing is, I never actually do drink while I fish, but the editor pinged me and commissioned it, so how could I say no?

I Want Teal Waders!

May 17, 2018


Somewhere along the line some genius figured out that instead of just having women model fly fishing gear for men to ogle and buy it, that maybe they should actually market fly fishing gear to women. Being how smart this is, it must’ve been a woman who came up with it. I’m kind of pissed […]

Before they imploded the King Dome to fritter our tax money on other unnecessary sporting venues the never-original Seattle came up with the name “SoDo” for the gritty, light industrial area south of the King Dome. I guess it’s better than one of the previous monikers: Hooverville, named after the shanty town slum that grew […]

Nearly 200 Crooked Doors of Portsmouth

January 6, 2018


It’s been a while since I posted, mostly because my short stories keep turning into novellas. I do have 50 drafts I need to finish, and I thought I would start with this one while it’s still timely. My sister and I did our annual trip to Portsmouth where we walk around Portsmouth and I […]

Snohomish 35th Anniversary Car Show

September 24, 2017


I went to the Snohomish Classic Car Show for the first time in a decade. I used to spend all day at these and shoot them on film. Due to time constraints, I’ve gotten incredibly lazy and have only done digital lately, but every time I convert one to B&W, I’m like “Ah, this is […]
