Pets can teach us a great deal, but they also make too much poop

As a guy in his mid-40s (I know, I know, I look like I am in my 20s…) I often think that I am a strong, competent adult who is in control of his life.

And then I come home and clean up dog poop, scoop up cat litter, constantly open and close doors for pets and clean bird poop off of the television.


I love our family pets dearly, (on most days) and I get more out of the relationship than I put in, but they can be taxing. Speaking of getting out more than I put in for them, how do they make so much poop and how do the cats fill the litter boxes so full? I don’t think I feed them that much.

The secret of my success

People often come up to me and ask me, “What is the secret to your amazing success?”

The answer is simple, it’s having a beard. Before I had a beard, I was just an ordinary person living an ordinary life.

Hello again, again

Ok, I am writing this just to clarify and to explain to myself a little bit more about what I am doing here.

I now decided that this will be my WordPress blog, and I may post some items on another site, too.

So, I am going to move some columns back over here, eliminate my extra WordPress site and move forward with this.

Confused? Good.  That’s what I was going for all along when I developed this blog four years ago, cleverly did not post anything for nearly 4 years and then started writing confusing items here again.

So here we go once again, I hope to put a lot on here, and if anyone stumbles across this site, I hope you like it (even if it is a little dumb).


Hello again world

Ok, after several years, I am back on here. I am changing this blog (which never really got started) and am turning the blog for columns and whatnot into nickoftime2016, which is my new blog on here.

I am going to use this blog more to write stories. Once again, these stories are mainly for me and to make me write, but we will see how and if it really goes.

If you stop by, please read over a little (I will have content here soon), feel free to offer feedback and please, please, leave doughnuts.

Thanks. Now, let’s see what happens next.
