Spending Time With Dad

My dad is 82. 

Though he doesn’t talk a lot, when he speaks it’s generally pretty important and just about every day I spend with him I learn something new.

Geared Up With Shaflin

It’s been awhile since old Shaflin checked in. How ya doing, guys?

Yeah, yeah, I know not everybody knows who Rob Shaflin is. Shaflin is the clear thinking alter ego of mister milquetoast Rob Chapman who usually fills this Lifeprints space. Occasionally, Shaflin has to tie the dude up to get the subject beyond such drivel as getting old and how beautiful nature is.

Trekking For An Autograph

The tag in the front of the former library book read “Discarded” with a last checkout date of September 16, 1995. It was a remarkably short run for such an interesting book. Star Trek Memories, penned by William Shatner with Chris Kreski, copyrighted in 1993, was released from its circulation duties after only six stamps.

And I was about to hand it to Shatner himself.

The Trouble With Sock Hops

The other day, I perused the men’s clothing section with one thing in mind. I needed some new black socks. 

It’s a mystery, of course, and one that people have investigated thoroughly over the years, but where do all of those missing mates go?  

Could they have gone to the fifth dimension?

Making Some Noise

A rather wonderful-sound made its way along the street in front of The Herald some years ago. Two of us sat at our desks, first soaking in the melodious rumblings of the engine idling on the street before giving up the guessing game and one of us peeking out of the second story window to satisfy the curiosity. 

It was, we would discover, a big-block V-8 owned by a co-worker.
