Robin and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

This just ain’t my day   Have you ever had one of “those” days? I am smack-dab in the middle of one now as I write this to you. In my private life, I am OK with sporadic changes — in fact, I sort of enjoy them. I am the kind of person who you […]

How is that even legal?

As the crime reporter I see a lot of different types of cases. Before coming to the Globe, I recorded court cases for the Superior Court in Arizona and saw lots of civil and family cases. I used to tease that I got paid to watch Court TV for a living. When I’m at home, […]

Dr. Palmer, you suck

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about Cecil the Lion and one man’s idiotic decision to kill an animal living in a nature preserve. Now, I don’t have an issue against hunting for food. I’m not a vegetarian or a vegan and I’ve ate my fair share of meat in my 34 years. I’ve […]

Time ain’t nothin’ but a number

Time. Of all the things out there that controls our lives, time is one of those things you can’t seem to ever get right. When you need some, it runs out. When you don’t want it, it seems you have an overabundance. Nineteen. I was brushing my cat Fidget and thinking about all of the […]

A chip off the old writer’s block

As you read this, I am on my last day of having a pseudo-vacation at home, thanks to Independence Day and a few well-placed days off. I’ve managed to get a few things done around the house — nothing amazing, mind you, but a few things. I’ve been dehydrating apples to have some yummy snacks […]

A thought provoking question

I had a partial day off on Monday, and when I wasn’t cleaning up fallen tree limbs out of the road by my house or catching up on laundry, I spent a few hours visiting with two friends I’d not really had an opportunity to catch up with in a while. Such is the life […]

Casting out the (dare)devils

Every great fisherman, and probably every bad one too, has an epic tale to tell. The struggle, the fight, the great war between man and beast is waged in ponds, lakes, streams and oceans around the world. A battle of wits played with little more than a string, a pole, a worm and a prayer. […]

At least it wasn’t anthrax

  I can’t imagine that anyone reading this has never made a mistake in their life. Some little, some major, but I am willing to bet each of us have made a boo-boo at one point or another. Yesterday was busy in the newsroom (as it tends to be) when a news alert came across […]

Things we do for love

Love will sometimes make us do crazy things. Other times it will make you remember what is important. And in some cases, it will make you change your plans to accommodate it. I was out at my friend’s farm a couple of weeks ago when I checked my phone to find two missed calls from […]

Out There in T.V. Land

I never really watched Seinfeld. In the 1990s I was in high school and was way too caught up in 90210 and Melrose Place to make that leap. But, apparently, if I am so inclined to binge watch it, I can on Hulu (assuming I’ll subscribe to Hulu). Hulu purchased the exclusive rights to the […]
