A Trespass of Swine

Considerations of humanity and hogritude, because an insufficiency of pigs is one of the great faults of all that the gods have made manifest to man.

Pondering hog heaven

Happy birthday, Dan,
you swine!

Dan's birthday 2014

You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.

Today is my birthday and this post is self-indulgently pig free… Just some stuff I’ve learned in my (59) years on this earth:

  • It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty, I’m still gonna’ drink what’s in it through a crazy straw.
  • When I’m down, I think of life as a glass of beer. No, wait. Actually, I just think of a glass of beer… That always makes me feel better better.
  • Forgetfulness is only a charming characteristic when it results in nudity.
  • I bought a really comfortable folding chair and a six-pack cooler with a shoulder strap ’cause every day the world descends further into chaos, and it is only going to keep getting harder to find a good spot to watch from.
  • The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.
  • Forget what the cookbooks say, plain yogurt tastes nothing like sour cream.
  • I am repeatedly and unavoidably being detained by the world, so expect me when you see me.

A special “THANK YOU” to my wife, Sharon, my daughter, my son, both their terrific families and all my friends for making this life far better than I probably deserve.



  1. you are right….better than you deserve. Hell hope it didnt take 59 yrs to figure that out.

    Btw – birthday cake is better with bacon in the middle!


    1. Exactly right, pal. I’ve known it a long time.
