Saturday Ramblings: February 6, 2016 – Superb Owl Edition

Gail and I are taking our classy red and white Metropolitan to the airport this morning for a little sky rambling down to Clearwater, Florida to snatch a few days of R&R. I hear there’s a big football game on the other coast this weekend and we’ll probably watch it. Being from Indianapolis, we have a fond […]

Saturday Ramblings: January 30, 2016 – Hawkeye Edition

It’s the final weekend in January 2016 already! Here in central Indiana, it looks nothing like our Rambler portrait today. Most are cheering that the weather will be in the 50’s this weekend. I can finally go outside and take my hoses off the spigots and see how much damage the occasional sub-freezing temps have […]

Saturday Ramblings: January 23, 2016

Hey, iMonks on the east coast, how you doin’ out there, under the wrath of Snowzilla? Hope you’re not thinking of doing any rambling today, at least on the roads. Looks like it might be awhile before you could dig that Rambler out. Why not sit back with a big mug of coffee and join […]

Saturday Ramblings: January 16, 2016

Ah, I would love to be going to the slopes with these folks in this stylish 1962 Rambler American 400 wagon. The measly amount of snow we received here in central Indiana last week just won’t do. And then the warm winds and rain came, and now we’re back to looking at grays and browns […]

Saturday Ramblings: January 10, 2016

Welcome to the first Saturday Ramblings of 2016. Our Christmas wasn’t white, and the weather outside so far this winter has been anything but frightful here in the Midwest. Still, we may be displaying a bit too much optimism to put up a red convertible as our ride for the week. Ah well, even though we haven’t […]

Saturday Ramblings: December 26, 2015

Santa is enjoying a well-deserved rest, but we’re back on the road and rambling! We’ll spice our journey today with some tweets we unwrapped on Christmas morning, gifts from Funny or Die and The Church Curmudgeon. First, here is one practical reason why “contemporary” churches don’t do liturgy… Second, people have no idea how stressful it is for […]

Saturday Ramblings, December 19, 2015

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. Ready to Ramble? Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and a coalition of dozens of prominent social conservatives and Evangelicals are reportedly planning to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz. Their goal is to avoid a split in “the evangelical vote.” Mike Huckabee,  the former evangelical pastor, says he […]

Saturday Ramblings: December 12, 2015

Isn’t that a lovely scene portrayed above? Ah, Christmas with the family. It was all so perfect, right? Well, as we ramble today, we feature a few more realistic pictures of what family Christmas is often really like — quirky, strange, and downright dysfunctional. Actually, some of these family Christmas photos make me want to convert […]

Saturday Ramblings: November 28, 2015

In honor of my brother-in-law with whom we just spent Thanksgiving, who once drove a bright orange version of this ’73 beauty, we feature today’s two-door Matador, which he lovingly remembers as “a piece of junk.” Of course, he only paid 300 bucks for it, but it is true that AMC/Rambler made some dreadful cars in […]

Saturday Ramblings: November 21, 2015

I’m in Nashville and feeling a little sporty today. How do you like this hot little number from 1966? Sweet, huh? We’ll have to take turns riding together, but I’ll be glad to have anyone who wants a wild ride to join me for a ramble this Saturday. I’ll take anyone, but my wife gets the […]
