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 […]

Saturday Ramblings: November 7, 2015

Dark November is advancing and so I’ve chosen a black beauty of a Rambler for us to ramble about in today. Isn’t this ’57 wagon magnificent? Well, what are you waiting for? Hop in, and let’s ramble! Since we are rapidly approaching the end of this liturgical year and the beginning of Advent, today’s Ramblings […]

Saturday Ramblings: October 31, 2015 — Scariest Creatures Alive Edition

Need a classy vehicle in which to take the little ones Trick-or-Treating tonight? Ditch that SUV and pile them into this sweet ’59 Ambassador Cross Country so they can fill it and themselves with candy and laughter. It’s Halloween. Let’s Ramble! First, this public service announcement for Daylight Savings Time (thanks, Clark Bunch!): Second, because […]

Saturday Ramblings: October 24, 2015

It’s the last full weekend of October and the world is colorful and sad. A perfect time to pile in the old Cross Country and go for a Saturday drive. Let’s ramble!   The only thing I will say about the Cubs and their loss to the Mets in the NLCS is that this is […]

Saturday Ramblings: October 17, 2015

This may be the peak leaf-peeper weekend in central Indiana, so I suggest we jump in our sleek little Metropolitan and ramble. Ready? The Democrats held their first presidential debate on Tuesday night, pitting Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders and three unnamed guys they pulled in from the neighborhood. While most pundits gave Clinton the […]

Your Head Rambler is feeling a bit down this morning after the Cubs’ loss to the Cardinals last night, but I’m not going to let it keep me down. I prescribe . . . rambling! So let’s get to it, okay? Ooh, this should get the action going . . . According to an article in the […]

Saturday Ramblings: October 3, 2015

• • • But as we go, we have to get in one more parting shot at Congress . . . Oh sorry, I forgot, there’s more about the Pope — the Kim Davis story . . . Earlier this week, the Kentucky county clerk announced that she and her husband met briefly with the pope at […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 27, 2015 – Papal Visit Edition

It’s the first weekend of autumn, here in the northern hemisphere, which means it’s springtime for Argentinian Pope Francis. That’s true in a metaphorical sense as well — the Pope has achieved a wonderful position of popularity right now. And then he came to the U.S. (motto: “We don’t kiss no stinkin’ rings!”). No, actually, the […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 20, 2015

It is the final weekend of the summer, and time for one last summer ramble. Ready? This is the kind of weekend the boys of summer love. And this year, it even includes Chicago Cubs fans like me! The Cubs are in the best division in baseball and holding their own. This past week they […]

Saturday Ramblings: September 12, 2015

If we can get this old Rambler jump-started, we’ll be off and running in this late summer edition. There, I think we got it. Ready to ramble? • • • Here are a couple of family pictures from our Labor Day weekend gathering at Cumberland Falls, Kentucky to celebrate my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. No, they really […]
