Saturday Ramblings: July 23, 2016

Hey, in case you hadn’t heard, some people rambled over to Cleveland this past week for a little party. And next week, a few more folks will ramble to Philadelphia for a different party. Those who drive to these events probably do so in something not unlike our flag-bedecked ’58 beauty above. It’s just that some […]

Saturday Ramblings: July 16, 2016 – County Fair Edition

Well, it has arrived: it is our annual County Fair season here in Indiana. HERE is a link to our local fair, which is held just up the street from our house. You can go to the link all week long and see pictures from the event. Or, you could visit their Facebook page. Our Rambler pic […]

Saturday Ramblings: July 9, 2016

I’m feeling rather subdued today, after a sad week here in the U.S. But we’ll try to lighten it up a little for this edition of Ramblings and focus on good news stories to encourage smiles and a bit of positive energy. Psst…Hey, I’m not even gonna rag on Ken Ham this week! Let’s ramble! • • […]

Saturday Ramblings: July 2, 2016

  We’re in Chicago for the weekend, enjoying music and walking around the city. The picture above is from the 1960 Chicago Auto Show, an event I attended a few times back when I was a teen. Note how Rambler was being advertised back in those days: Rambler: Basic Excellence. That’s what we try to give […]

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. Ready to Ramble? Please keep the Orlando victims in your thoughts and prayers. I don’t know i have anything to say that hasn’t been said already this week, but you are welcome to discuss this tragedy in the comments if you wish. What do porn stars, the East […]

Saturday Ramblings: June 11, 2016

Yes folks, yard work and gardening is in full swing here in the Midwest these days. I suspect that I’ll be making multiple trips to the home improvement store this weekend, loading up on outdoor essentials. Too bad we couldn’t just call Mr. Bushie and have him deliver what we need in his sharp 1951 Nash […]

Saturday Ramblings: June 4, 2016

All aboard! Hop on the Rambler tour bus and let’s go look at some sights from this past week. For all practical purposes, summer is upon us, and it’s time to hit the open highway with a group of friends to see what we can see. Let’s ramble! Rest in peace, Robertson McQuilkin. McQuilkin was the former […]

Saturday Ramblings: May 28, 2016 – Race Version

Ain’t no ramblin’ Rambler today, friends. This is Race Weekend here in Indy, and a special one at that. This Memorial Day Sunday will mark the 100th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500. Your chaplain won’t be going anywhere near 16th and Georgetown tomorrow, however. Officials announced the first sellout in […]

Saturday Ramblings, May 21, 2016

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. Ready to Ramble? It’s graduation season, and you can tell something about a school by who it brings in for commencement speaker. Even small, non-distinguished schools can bring in important thinkers and speakers if they try. Carthage College nabbed Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. High Point University […]

Saturday Ramblings, May 14, 2016

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend? Ready to Ramble? Well, Chaplain Mike should be happy. His beloved Cubs suck much less than usual this year. At least, that’s what I’m told. I don’t watch baseball. Life is waaay too short to watch baseball. A Giant Tortoise’s life is too short to watch baseball. This […]
