Be Jealous…

Posted by Les Becker on May 24, 2018 in Little Bits of Stupid, Wasted Time... |

If you have not yet grown up, and love to watch big machines dig holes in city streets, be jealous… I get this view for the whole summer, probably fall and likely into winter.

Sixteen Steps…

Posted by Les Becker on December 7, 2017 in Real Life |

Leaving home in the dark through the back door is not as dangerous as it looks (if you count steps, anyway). And turn the torch app on…

Grandmotherhood…

Wow. Just… Wow. Very soon now… My baby will bring forth her own baby into the world. And… I. Am. In. Awe. His name is Carson Anthony Ward, the already so-much-loved progeny of Kyla Ward (nee Becker) and Colton Ward. I am already in love with him. Carson, that is, not Colton; although as sons-in-law […]

Mothra Strikes Again…

Posted by Les Becker on March 4, 2016 in Fur-Babies, Real Life |

The cute little girl-cat-turned-boy-cat-that-has-grown-to-unforeseen-monstrous-proportions-considering-he’s-maybe-only-9-months-old has got himself a new favourite activity. He eats my clothes. It started with socks and underwear. Then he moved up to pajama pants and the straps of my camisole shirts (followed quickly by the bellies of my camisole shirts), the sleeves of my long-sleeved (ha!) jersey shirts that are part […]

I’ve Been Held Back to the Point of Falling Over…

Broken Chair

I’ve had some serious “Writer’s Block” issues for the last… oh… millennium or so. I’ve come to the conclusion over the last several months that it’s not writer’s block so much as my own stubbornness that’s keeping me from writing. But then the above event happened. In slow motion. Just like in the movies. I […]

He’s Settling In – He Owns the Whole Damned Cat Tree, Now…

Posted by Les Becker on November 3, 2015 in Fur-Babies, Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

Tricksy the Not-Girl Cat has settled in to the point that he has taken over all the cat toys and now owns the cat tree as well. He tends not to pay much attention to it, unless Luna decides to climb it, whereupon he tears up the side of it and removes her forcibly. He […]

Safely Cocooned…

Posted by Les Becker on August 3, 2015 in Finances, J.O.B., Photography, Productivity, Real Life |
New Beginning

I have a good routine going now. Four nights at The Big Box J.O.B. and two nights at the gasbar – finances are in order, pre-paid bank accounts are being built up, my garden is “gardening”, and my book is selling. I feel like I’m in a safe little cocoon again – much like this […]

I’ll Just Stay Home from Now On, Thanks…

Posted by Les Becker on July 8, 2015 in Artsy Fartsy, Little Bits of Stupid, Photography, Real Life |
Rx

I celebrated life in general (and working nights, specifically) this morning by wandering down to the Sainte Mary’s River and the boardwalk with my camera at the very friggin’ crack of dawn. It seemed like a good way to celebrate, since this is the first Wednesday since mid-April or so that I don’t feel concerned […]

It Seemed Time to Return to This…

Posted by Les Becker on May 4, 2015 in Artsy Fartsy, Real Life, Wall Panels |

I still have three Belfry wall panels to complete – this is one of them. There are four or five more that still need something on them, but I dare not begin anything new until I’ve got what I’ve started completed. Such is my life: for the most part – entirely half-cooked. This panel started […]

So, 2015 Sure Started Out Weird…

I’m not sure I even know where to begin… I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings… That old saw about “how you ring in […]

Merry Christmas, Internet!

Posted by Les Becker on December 24, 2014 in Just for Fun..., Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

Ian is one of Ky’s roommates… Ky is a Vegetarian. Ian may pay for this meal in more ways than one. For the record (cuz I know y’all are wondering); 1) He ate the whole thing. 2) He didn’t throw it all up (as far as I know). 3) He slept the whole way home. […]
