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 […]

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 […]

He Saw Dead People…

Posted by Les Becker on September 27, 2008 in Other People's Stories... |

So, after a lovely Tilapia dinner, The Cook – oops – Kitchen Manager – no, make that Soon-To-Be-Revealed Self-Named Story-Teller, told me his earliest memory. It was a memory that’s haunted him his whole life (and he’s even older than me, so you know that’s a whole lotta life to be haunted), and I really […]

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 […]

Struck Me Funny, It Did…

Posted by Les Becker on June 6, 2007 in The Landlady |

Ruby has gotten used to me writing down everything she says, now. She even seems to be looking forward to reading all the stuff I’m making up about her, if I ever get it printed and bring it over. I hope she still feels that way once she reads it. Contrary to what I told […]
