Episode 660Jul 14, 2019Christmas Happened One Summer
Let me tell you a story about how for me, Christmas and Summer belong together. The story involves one of my favorite little kids. Our little Cecelia. Cecelia loves airplanes. I took her for a flight in my little four seat Piper while she was here one Summer, and I explained about the ailerons, and the rudder, and the flaps...and she understood. She's smart. She not only understood, but evidently she gave a lecture on the subject to her day care class...complete with an "oh wow" from her assembled colleagues.
Our daughter Kris says Cecelia is quite convinced she can fly the airliner next time they come to visit. There IS something genuinely magical about climbing into an airplane, and lifting off into the sky. A pilot-poet once said it was like... "Reaching out to touch the face of God." That pilot was a nineteen year old kid...no he was a nineteen year old hero...because he gave his life when his Royal Air Force Spitfire fighter plane was shot down in the Battle of Britan. This podcast is about the connection between our little Cecelia, Summertime, and Christmas. Give a listen please.
Episode 659Jul 07, 2019Sleeping Naked
See. I knew it. Sleeping naked is good for you. It says right here that "Sleeping naked can improve your ability to have restful sleep, and in general your overall health. When you sleep naked your body's production of melatonn which makes you sleepy isn't hindered by clothing." See. I told you Lady Wonder Wench. Nothing worse than having your body's production of melatonn hindered by clothing that's what I always say. Women's clothing is always confusing to me. I mean For example why does a young woman need a training bra? What is she trying to teach herself? And why does a woman wear a blouse that buttons up the back? And I just saw an ad for a woman's clothing store that said, "underwear 40% off." Wow. What a great idea. This podcast might convince you to be good to your body...and sleep naked.
Episode 658Jun 30, 2019Get It While It's Hot
IT's SUMMERTIME. This podcast says, "Don't let it get away. Grab it while it's hot." Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer to the end it gets, the faster if goes. Happy Summertime.
Episode 657Jun 23, 2019One Day At A Time
This podcast is about sitting here in my big, manly black leather poppa chair considering Big Louie's advice about what to do today. Big Louie always says "The only way to live happily ever after is to take it one day at a time." And I do want to live happily ever after.
Of course Big Louie says lots of things in my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot...available at Amazon...shameless plug. Besides "The only way to live happily ever after is to take it one day at a time" Louie likes to remind us that "If you have any moving parts left, for God's sake, MOVE EM". And "You never know when something wonderful is going to happen."
So I'm trying to figure out how I can take my one day at a time like nobody else is taking his one day at time. But I find myself doing so many of the things you probably do too, that I get concerned that we might all spend our happily ever afters together. Now, I like lots of you, but...comon. Why do we do so many of the same things?
Lots of times when I sit here thinking I click my ball point pen...just like you. Some times when I come home from the supermarket I ballance 4 plastic bags on each arm, grab 2 bags with my teeth, hold a quart of milk between my legs, and bunny hop from my car into the house with the groceries. Way too often I catch myself tap, tap, taping my foot. Why? As much as I hate it, I sometimes start answering a question with the word, "Well" or even the word "So." SO I think we'll have a pretty nice day today. SO WHAT! How are you feellng today Dick? Well...I'm over my cold so I'm well. I know I shouldn't do that, but way too often I fall into that well...just like you...I'll bet.
Episode 656Jun 16, 2019Missing Maybe
I am sitting here in my big, comfortable, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room, looking for my maybe. My maybe is not the insect that buzzes around making honey in May.
The maybe I'm looking for is the most important part of the famous formula that says "Honesty = The Truth + Maybe." If you're not familiar with that famous formula, you'll find it in Chapter 11 of my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, Available at Amazon dot com, shameless plug...in the book it says, "Honesty = The Truth + Maybe" means whenever somebody says, "This is the truth, you've got to believe me" it's really time to think to yourself, "Maybe it's time for some serious maybe." As in "Lightning doesn't strike the same place twice." If you'd add some serious "Maybe" to that statement, you'd find that...no...for example the Empire State Building was hit by lightning 23 times last year.
Episode 655Jun 09, 2019The Every Month Problem
Every month or so, my Lady Wonder Wench looks up at me sweetly, smiles softly, and murmers..."You need a haircut." She never said that to me once before we got married. Now she says it about once a month.
We were at an Andrew Rieu concert recently. Andrew Rieu is a vilonist with a classical orchestra and bushels of hair to spare. He stands on the stage, sawing away at his violin and waving his hair all over the audience. All the women in the audience were swaying back and forth urging him to toss his hair their way. Some women have been known to toss various still warm items of their underwear at him...which encouraged him to even more tossing of his hair.
Right there in the middle of that estrogen eruption the other night, right in the middle of a sway, my Lady Wonder Wench looked up at me sweetly, smlled softly and murmered, "You need a haircut." I am told many women have monthly problems. My hair seems to be her monthly problem.
Episode 654Jun 02, 2019Bodily Harm
Looks like I am in for some bodily harm, because I am about to reveal...a secret code which has come to be called, 'The RULES" in this podcast. And Rule #14 is, "Any attempt to document these rules could result in bodily harm to the male." These rules were obviously written by a woman, and I'm pretty sure the threat of bodily harm to which she is referring has nothing to do with the possibility of her punishing me with some kind of complete sexual exhaustion.
Episode 653May 26, 2019Don't Worry Be Happy
This podcast is about Dr. Bobby McFerrin's prescription for getting your life going. It's a good prescription. It includes 10 Happiness Helpers that might actually put a smile on your kisser. Please give it a shot.
Episode 652May 19, 2019Back Scratch
Given the choice between getting a million dollars and havingh a world class back scratch administered by a lady bearing a close resemblence to Catherine Zeta Jones, or my Lady Wonder Wench it would be tough choice. Hey, just think, there's are no income taxes on back scratches. Plus, I've found that my voice makes interesting and some would say sexy sounds during a back scratch...which, on occasion in the past, has lead me to having even more enjoyable activities. And of course there's the time honored old saying, "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yoursâ€”now let's fall in love. Or at least in lust."
Of course you only get a really good backscratch from your lady when she's happy with you. "Happy wife, happy life" is a saying that comes to mind. I'm sure you know that many people must resort to auto back scratching when it has been too long between bouts of social or romantic back scratching. Scratch your back a little with today's podcast.
