The Accidental Fisherman

Posted by Les Becker on July 4, 2009 in Other People's Stories... |

Muddy by the Water I have this buddy who is an incredible cook and a hot-shit photographer. My kid is very partial to him, because he spoils her with pickles. She calls him “Muddy”, and I think he’s rather partial to her, as well, because whenever we walk into his restaurant, he has a bowlful […]

Good God, What Day is This?!

Posted by Les Becker on November 18, 2008 in J.O.B., Real Life |

Bright RawTaken March 16, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m not kidding, either. My days are like this: get up, eat, shower, dress, eat again, pack a lunch, cross the street to work, where I suck back 8 to 10 cups of coffee, eat one lunch, buy another, eat everybody else’s leftovers, dance in the […]

The Day the Earth Stood Still…

Posted by Les Becker on September 25, 2008 in Other People's Stories..., Real Life |

A couple of months back, I was invited to dinner by a friend: a 6’4 cook I worked with at The House of Fracas, my temporary placement, the first J.O.B. (and so far, only) in my brand new field, after I was out of school. This invitation was a long time coming. He kept inviting […]

Aunt Blanche

Posted by Les Becker on August 21, 2008 in It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy, Oh Mother...! |

Aunt Blanche was my mother’s older sister. She was the first born – and she wasn’t very old before my grandmother realized she was a little, well, different. I suppose the proper, “politically correct” term to describe Blanche would be mentally challenged. She never went to school, never held a job, and never married. I […]

Where Did the Time Go?

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2008 in Real Life |

Where Did the Time Go?Taken March 1, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Whew! That was a hiatus I would rather not have taken. The Real World sucks compared to this one, it really does. That said, it could be added that my time “away” basically consisted of two types of events: losses and gains. These […]

Mish-Mash

Posted by Les Becker on January 5, 2008 in Oh Mother...!, Photography, The Landlady |

The Little Red Shoes sit in my mother’s Etagiere, if I spelled that correctly. Elle? Wanna let me know, Betch?! My mom calls it a “What-Not”. I think it’s because it’s to display all your knick-knacks and what-not in. Anyway, that’s where the Little Red Shoes are, when they’re not in the bathtub, with me […]

Jimmy Prentice & the Radio

Posted by Les Becker on October 15, 2007 in Oh Mother...! |

Philco Radio, 1941 Jimmy Prentice was somewhat of a local oddball, to hear my parents talk. I don’t know if he actually had a home, or not. My mother talks about how sometimes, just before dinner was set to be “lifted”, Gramma would be looking out the kitchen window, and say, “Better put another plate […]
