NINE, sneeze please, Cold, DecoBMX

Driving and eating a Lara Bar. Mouth is full and I feel the sneeze coming on. Sure as shit you have been in a similar situation where you have to choose to spit it out the window or chewing furiously and swallow. Well now I have done all three...last one I did not mention is to sneeze and spray lil

Duck hand, December, truth, Mustache

Went for a run today. Try to do this at least once a week if not more. No headphones, no music, just sunglasses and running shoes. This is how I clear my head but also push thinking. I can't text. No way of contacting me. No TV. Just a short time to be free. Like most days I will pass by people with

Getting my car fixed. Hour and a half they said it will take. Either Dennys or McD’s to kill some time. Hungry but have my own food. McD’s it is. Know there is a story inside. So many old people. Eating shit food. So many people with newspapers. Dude sleeping charging his phone. Lots of couples

Finally pulled the plug on cable for good. Save $90 a month. Why the hell did I not do this sooner? Everything is streaming or online. Damn I am a turtle when it comes to change. Bring it. I need it.

Wild how time passes and quickly at that. July 1993 I was there that day when Jeff Crawn crashed from his forks breaking while at Scrap skatepark outside of Chicago. We were all excited for the photo shoot going down. Never would have guessed one of the future greats would go down…and stay down fo

November is here. Weather is changing for the better if you ask me but I am in Florida. Reason I moved here over 20 years ago. You might be only 20 years old but know that time is relevant. Temperatures are pretty much the best for the next 6 months. Outside activities start increasing and less over

In 1992 I graduate high school then went to a Tech college but decided to take a break and travel over and down to Arizona for a winter.
