The Driving Dead

Skeleton Copilot

Although I dearly, dearly love summer I’m already thinking and planning for Halloween. On the negative side, I’m spending way too much on Halloween decorations. On the plus side, I now expect to drive in the HOV lane thanks to my new copilot.

Ghostly Gettysburg

Haunted Gettysburg Tours

I had an occasion to visit Gettysburg Pennsylvania this weekend for a little R&R. As expected, the area is rich in history and amazing stories: tragic and heroic. But I was also amazed how swamped the area is with ghost stories. The first hint came when it was posted on Facebook that we were going …

Mow With Attitude

"Bad Boy" Elite Lawn Mower

Shopping at the local Farm and Tractor store, I found myself eyeballing a zero turn tractor. (Such is my life these days.) My eye was caught by the ‘Elite’ ‘Bad Boy’ lawn mower. Looking closer I came to the tractor’s control panel… “Mow With Attitude”. Everyday I’m reminded that we live in a surreal world. …

Beware the Pond

For your own safety please stay away from the pond. Thank you. (Cropped Closeup)

It’s very nice of the tree to warn us. (Sighted outside of a church wedding this month.)

Free Hugs

My friend, Margret shared this image with me, saying, “I immediately thought of you”; to which I replied, “I’m sad to report that for some sick reason, I’m glad that this made you immediately think of me!“ Margret responded, “Glen Green: the reluctant psychopath.” Glen Green: the reluctant psychopath – I think that would make …

The Price is Wrong

Five Below Duck Tape - 99¢ ... er... $3.99

Quick! How much does this tape cost? I saw this at Five Below. The Blue ‘3’ blends into the black background even more in person. I have to wonder how many shoppers got to the checkout line only to be pissed off that the price was four times higher than they thought. Is this just …

Florid Fido Feculence

Glowing Dog Dung

I’ll confess that I’ve never had much of a scatological funny bone but I do have a keen sense of the surreal. Shopping at Target during the Halloween season I came across glow-in-the dark plastic poo in the $1 dollar bin that greets visitors on entry into the store. I marvel at the following: Note …

Scary insane pig wants eaten to end its misery (iPhone Photo by Your Host)

We stopped at Pittsburgh’s Rocky’s Route 8 on June 6th after work, interested to try someplace new to eat. The food wasn’t great but we managed to get some funny pictures at least. This Little Piggy Wants to Eat Your Soul We had to wait more than an hour for mediocre wings and a hamburger, …

Smooth Criminal Timberlands

Hiking boot Gorilla Glued to the garage floor (iPhone photo by Glen Green)

One of the boots of a pair of treasured Timberland hikers had the out-sole come loose, so I took some Gorilla Glue and pored it between the rubber and the front of the shoe. I then balanced the boot on the front tip so that the weight would keep the gap pressed closed while it …

This Might Blow Your Mind

"Party Roulette" - Russian Roulette for the whole family!

Hey mom and dad, gather the kids around – now the whole family can play an exciting game of chance and mock-suicide with ‘Party Roulette‘! If you look closely at the photo, there is one guy who looks shocked while two women on either side of him are laughing. But my favorite is the blood …

Irony: Made in the USA

T-shirt: MADE IN U.S.A. AND PROUD OF IT! (Photo by Glen Green)

Sorting through my photo library, I came across this little gem which I shot in a grocery store in Florida in 2008. I’ll let it speak for itself.

The Vanilla Shake Disaster

vanilla-milkshake

Sensing a presence standing above me I look up to the iHop waitress standing there. She looks disconsolate. “I don’t want to upset you sir…” <pauses, apparently to let me prepare myself> but I can’t make you that vanilla milkshake… The news of this tragedy was delivered with all sincerity and it actually made me …

The Lost Sin City

Sherbert desert at MGM Grand's "The Wok", Las Vegas Nevada

Away for the Holiday We went to Vegas over Thanksgiving for six days. The holiday hasn’t felt very homey for a very long time and we wanted to take good advantage of a few days off, so we found a good deal with Southwest and headed to the desert lights, – after all, nothing says, …

Paris for a while

October found me back in Paris. – A city that has always been a delight to me. I’m home now, but the romance of the city lingers in my mind. I guess it goes to show that you just never know where life will take you. You search for answers. You wonder what it all …

Facebook and Politics

I really enjoy your poltical Facebook posts, said no one ever. - Some Cards

Periodically, but during the voting season in particular, some friends will post, “I wish there was a hide political rant” button, or they’ll post a snarky image about politics and Facebook. They very well may be right. It’s easy to imagine sophisticated people sitting around a table at a dinner party exchanging political witticisms (“Well …

Foot imprinting on the dust of the Moon - Apollo 11, 1969

Human society has been in existence for tens of thousands of years. During the majority of that time, human achievements happened relatively slowly. For the vast majority of those who ever lived, it is likely that they did not experience a true watershed, defining moment of human endeavor. And yet, on July 20, 1969, humanity …

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man Movie - 2012

“Amazing” is an overstatement, but “New and Improved Spider-Man” works for me. I finally saw the movie last night, – my second attempt. (My first attempted failed because it was the premier night of Batman Rises and the theater failed to update their listings and the fact that they closed a theater that had been …

Shame the devil

CNN headline "The Supreme Court has struck down the individual mandate for health care. Mandate struck down" - June 28, 2012

When CNN was first created: the idea of 24 hour news held the promise of greater, in-depth news coverage. It has turned into tabloid reporting. I laugh when I hear people talk about the ‘liberal media’. All of these large media organizations are corporate owned and funded by other corporations. They serve the dollar, not …

The Sound of Summer Running

Ray Bradbury books - R is for Rocket, The Martian Chronicles, Dandelion Wine, The Illustrated Man, S is for Space, From the Dust Returned - Photo by Glen Green

I learned today that Ray Bradbury, my second favorite author, died on June 5th. He was 91. As Tolkien was to fantasy, so Ray Bradbury was to science fiction – both popularized their genres. And like Tolkien, Bradbury wrote prose like it was poetry. I still have the old, well loved books and even now, on …
