Sunday Morning Coffee — June 17, 2018 — Happy Hour

Like almost everything else in life these days, getting on a bicycle used to be easier. Much easier. Nevertheless, last Monday I put my left foot on the left pedal and then somehow raised my right leg over the rupture bar, swung it over the high seat and without making...

Sunday Morning Coffee – June 10, 2018 – French Fried

If politics makes for strange bedfellows, then in our house tennis heroes fall just short of separate bedrooms. While Andi and I are on different ends of the political spectrum, I must admit as the daily buffoonery continues I have moved a little, just a little, over to her side...

Sunday Morning Coffee — June 3, 2018 — Never Again…

The ink wasn’t even dry and I was asked the question. Actually, that’s not true. They don’t use ink anymore. But I still got asked the question. It was the last week of January, 2014 at Pirates old-guy fantasy camp in Bradenton, Florida. The Most Wonderful Week of the Year had been...

Sunday Morning Coffee – April 22, 2018 – One Tough Pierogi

The normally tasty pecan crusted chicken salad wasn’t as good on Wednesday. “Bruno Sammartino died today,” I said to Andi over lunch. She sensed my disappointment. “I don’t know who that is,” she admitted after thinking she should. Andi’s a girl, so she’s excused. “Bruno Sammartino died today,” I said...

Sunday Morning Coffee — April 8, 2018 — Masters of Their Domain

For the past twenty or maybe twenty-five years, ever since the kids left and life slowed down, today was my favorite Sunday of the year. Masters Sunday. The futon on the screened-in porch. A slow burning Cohiba or Montecristo that had been stashed away all winter, just for today. A...

Sunday Morning Coffee – March 18, 2018 – March Sadness

Whether you follow college basketball the rest of the year or not, and most people don’t, this month is all-in for the game. It’s the fortnight plus one when people who care less about hoops for forty-nine weeks are suddenly caught up in the hype and become aficionados, fill out...
