The Bear Hunter

Bear Claw

I found this bear claw in a box full of little trinkets and treasures in my father’s closet nearly a year ago. It was in the same box with his pocket watch, along with some other neat stuff. This was during my Walk-About days, when I would hoof it all the way across town once […]

Whew! I Need That “Slow-It-All-Down” Button Again…

Posted by Les Becker on December 9, 2008 in Finances, Real Life |

Busy, wow! I’m loving the night shift, but will have to re-learn “day-shift mode” for the weekends until at least after the New Year, beginning this Sunday, when I start working days for Louie. That will only be on the weekends, mind you – I’m not sure yet how I’ll deal with working 7 days […]

Sometimes, Wishing is Enough…

Posted by Les Becker on November 27, 2008 in J.O.B., Zenishness... |

My boss called me today. Asked me to come in to work to “have a little talk.” Scared the shit out of me. I LOVE my job. I want to keep my job. The only thing I don’t like about my job is my seeming inability to negotiate gracefully between day shifts and night shifts, […]

What to Post When You Can’t Keep a Train of Thought on Its Rails…

Posted by Les Becker on November 23, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

Trojan MooseTaken July 7, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Yeah, yeah, I know I said I *hate* these things not two posts ago, but…The Best Memes in Life Are Stolen. Elle said that, so it must be true. Stole this from Elle, who stole it from Angelika, who stole it from Why Are You Stalking […]

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 […]

Guess What I Found on the “Dance Floor”…?

Posted by Les Becker on November 7, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Radio Les |

Right, so I worked a night shift today (or last night), and have not yet slept, although I’m working through the night again tomorrow (or today [or tonight]). You’ll have to excuse me; my brains have had a stir. See above. It’s a lonely vigil, the night shift. There’s nobody else to dance with, for […]

Bleed…

Posted by Les Becker on June 9, 2008 in Real Life |

I’m feeling a little raw, lately. There are a lot of changes being thrust upon me, and, as you all well know, I don’t deal with change ummm… much. I’m not having any luck becoming accustomed to the schedule at the new J.O.B., which kind of throws everything else out of whack as far as […]

It Used to Give Me Peace of Mind…

Posted by Les Becker on February 18, 2008 in Kyla Becker, Real Life |

Now, the bill is causing an ulcer.Taken February 17, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 As a former “Smother Mother”, placing a cell phone in my daughter’s hands relieved some of the “she will surely be kidnapped/assaulted/raped/arrested or otherwise end up in a body-bag if I let her out of my sight” symptoms. Surprisingly quickly, actually. […]

She Freaking Pierced Her Own Nose

Posted by Les Becker on February 9, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid |

“Ouch!”Taken February 9, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 She swore she wouldn’t. Pinky-swore,even. It looks like hell, doesn’t it? I told her it looked like it was infected already, and she said, “Yeah, but only a little infected.” She’s been after me for over two years to let her do this. I told her we […]

Ruby’s Right – You Can’t Trust That Internet.

Posted by Les Becker on January 28, 2008 in The Father Chronicles |

Team in Winter – Source Unknown I found this info while looking for links for this waaaaaay back story of my dad’s that he told me on Saturday. I’m still shaking my head. Ruby says you can’t trust that Internet – and I guess she’s right, this time, at least. This is not a “Ghost […]
