Although I am a musician, (BM in guitar performance & MA in Music Theory-literature, Eastern Michigan University) guitarist-composer- teacher, I often dabbled with lyrics and continued with my observations that I had written before in the mid-eighties My Observations are mostly prose with poetic lilt. Observations include historical facts, conjecture, objective and subjective views and things that perplex me in life. The Observations that I write are more or less Op. Ed. in format.
Although I grew up in Hamtramck, Michigan in the US my current residence is now in Cumby, Texas and I am happily married to my wife, Judy.
I invite to listen to my guitar works

The United States Postal Service is running out of money to operate. My dad was a postal clerk in Hamtramck, Michigan, zone 12, Before the use of zip codes, yes I am that old, Zip codes were enacted by the time I was eight.

Who is this man of God, professing the Resurrection of my Lord Jesus, Dressed up with all that bling? That the more you give to me assuredly comforts you with a heavenly thing.
A Royal Flush!
The ‘Assuies’ are levying a tax on water output, so called the ‘flushing tax’, Some are not flushing as much do reduce their water bill, Some are going “outside” in their outback, if you will, In this world wide economic slow down you can’t be lax.

It’s rather amazing that the ostentatious behavior of Bernie Madoff comes into the court. Bernie would leave thousands aside destitute while his lawyers did a pre-emptive retort. Bernie had built a multi-level Ponzi scheme for more than a decade, - and now he had to pay the piper for his dance.
A Dead Hand
You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, Know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you're sittin at the table. There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealins' done.
3 (a not so poem about the number three ...
Three is a most important number in society both religious and secular. 1 If you place two dots you get a straight line if you place three dots you have your geometric figure. (Euclidean Geometry, -101 duh!) 2 There are three seen dimensions length, width, height. 3 There are three states of matter, gas, solid, liquid.
A Penny for Your Thoughts
Abraham, you are about to undergo a "tail lift", You replaced the Indian penny in 1909, And for your centennial, your tail is going to have a contemporary design,

A Do-Over Again?
I wrote awhile back about the Michigan and Florida Democratic Do-Over, Because they violated the Democratic Party’s rules, Now Barack Obama is the 44th President as of January 20th was that for sure? In the hustle and bustle amongst all the bling and jewels,

Been to Taco Bell or Taco Bueno lately for Super Bean Burrito? Been lactose intolerant lately? You forgot your Beano? Do have the urge to pass a gaseous nebula from your (inner) space?

“Hey Mr. Ranger Sir, All that I Want is ...
The first part of the title, I often recall, that’s what Yogi the Bear said the park ranger. The human species choice of vehicle break-ins, in the USA, is the Cadillac Escalade. But if you have a minivan and go to the national parks, you are in danger. The minivan is vehicle of choice of the park bears.
A New Low for Air Transport
I know the economy is bad all over, But this has to take the cake, Jet 2 is a no frills, Airline would take the basic humanistic approach but they have thrills,

"Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds." But the lack of money may.
The United States Postal Service is running out of money to operate.
My dad was a postal clerk in Hamtramck, Michigan, zone 12,
Before the use of zip codes, yes I am that old,
Zip codes were enacted by the time I was eight.
One of the Postal branches in New York City has; neither snow…..,
Though, - the US Postal officially has no motto.
My dad went on a strike back when the US Postal System was run by the government,
It was called a wild cat strike,
He feared for his job but the union "wanted" him to strike for better pay,
