The Thing Living Inside Frankie

Image SourceTo preface, "The Thing" is not a baby.One hundred percent NOT a baby.Now that that's out of the way, we can move on.For the sake of easier reading there will be times were the writing of this post is in first person, and times when we flip to us/we when it seems appropriate. This is one of the rare occasions in the many years of writing that there has been swapping, or even use of "I".If you don't know who "We" are, and are actually curious, there is an archive of writing available at your di...

Brief Healthcare Rant

This will be brief. Promise.This year will mark the first year we've had to face "modern day" insurance (much has changes over the last 13+ years).And this is the first year since the ACA that we have moved from the Marketplace (Affordable Health Care system) to employer-based insurance. And just in time. Or so it seemed?For those who are unfamiliar with having to use insurance for something other than a yearly physical (generally covered at no cost, in the case of many insurance plans), a deductible is ...

Frankie Goes To Vegas: The Rockabilly Edition

This was the fourth trip to Las Vegas over the past just about 10 years, the second in just two, and marks the first that was for an actual event, and not just Vegas for the sake of Vegas. The Official Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend Cruiser That event was Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, the longest running music festival in Vegas, where every cool cat - who loves to brandish a pompadour, or a greased doo, a fedora (or Trilby) [hat] or a porkpie [hat]; a wallet with a big chain and cuffed jeans ...

Briefly Deconstructing the Snowflake

Image Source LinkLooking back on the last year, there was definitely topics to write about, from mental health, to communication, to relationships, to politics (and everything beneath that umbrella)...but the topics never made it to ink and paper, virtual or otherwise.Let's call it getting into the groove of self-employment post graduation (a year and a half in and loving it), and travel (shout out to all the great people we saw last year), and gardening (year three was a mild success), plus working on f...

Being Brief

content discovered on Thursday, August 25, 2016

The thing about people, friends, significant others, and family members knowing where to find your blog is that over time it really limits what you can write about. Unless you're a complete and utter asshole, that is. So it forces abstract and brief commentary and statuses, here, there, in all the usual places ... nothing coming together to form anything tangible for anyone to fully understand.We're currently trying to figure out a way to return to therapeutic blogging, the kind we used to do, because it...

Flowers Beneath Your Touch

content discovered on Sunday, July 24, 2016

When it takes years to understand the significance of what it means when you find pure pleasure in gently running your fingers against soft, wet, beautiful flowers after a rain, when you've had "too much to drink"...knowing the petals of those flowers bring you nearly as much joy on a hot and dry day as they do in that moment following a downpour. And he doesn't drink much anymore, but he says when he did he ran his fingers over the rough terrain of unyielding stone walls, waking up the next day, his fin...

Snapshot of an Average Life

content discovered on Wednesday, July 06, 2016

So we're driving down the back road, and about 20 miles from home we see a car alongside the road, facing the other direction, an old classic, a tan Mercury Comet with collectors plates, hood up, an old man sort of ambling around it. As we pass he sort of waves his hand, low, near his hip. It was difficult to tell if he was waving us off or not. We drove on, glancing in the review mirror as he got into the front seat of his car... It's hot out. 80F. The hottest part of the day. It wasn't long before w...

A Garden Meditation

content discovered on Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Today, while weeding the garden, fingers and toes deep in the moist dirt, pulling up the offensive greenery, we could feel the impending thunderstorm in the air. The heaviness, the humidity...just a matter of time. Summer is here, and with it, the glorious thunder and lightning. And suddenly we thought of Skittles (aka Nettie, aka Annette Ford) and the last time we saw her, when she came to visit for several days, mere months before she passed, when we ran from a prairie storm, and then we chased it wi...

Frankie Goes to Vegas

content discovered on Tuesday, May 10, 2016

While we have plenty of travel journals from over the past several years (for those posts go here:, this is less a travel journal entry, and more of a tips for doing Vegas.This was the third trip to Las Vegas in the past 8 years, which gives a bit of credibility to what we're about to say.The first trip was a week long, the second was 3 days, and this one was 3 and a half days.Each trip was a bit different, the first two were with a group of friends (...

Voting Against the "Undesirables" - A Guest Blo...

content discovered on Friday, March 18, 2016

It's been a busy year so far...Okay, so busy is a relative term in this case. The first two months of the year, slow months work-wise, were mostly spent engrossed in video games. Having never played much of anything past a Wii (Mario Brothers and MarioKart, for the most part), and the odd Xbox Kinnect (hello, Rise of Nightmares), mostly because of lack of was a surprise when, shortly after Christmas, we picked up a controller and suddenly it all clicked. So, after spending the better part of...
