(This post inspired by Sarah Cooper’s post: “When Did I Grow Up?”) Although some who know me may disagree, this is NOT a post about failing to mature—but rather—why, oh why, was I more blessed with short genes than with tall genes? At my tallest (we DO shrink a bit with age—a gravity-thing I sus...
This gray Saint Paul morning we find Pruett’s telling us the temperature is a cool 62ºF, and out lens-assisted eyes tell us it’s cloudy. The weather people tell us to expect it to be partly cloudy with a slight chance of thunderstorms. High 71ºF. winds ESE at 10 to 15 mph, chance of rain 30%. We...
This morning as Boomer & I savor the coming weekend, enjoying our mugs of organically & shade-grown, fair-trade, Guatemalan-Roast coffee on my, yes my back porch, the temperature in Saint Paul is a delightfully cool 61ºF and the sky is clear. Boomer has the weekend off (as always), and since I m...
Again in spirit, Boomer & I are enjoying our mugs of  organically & shade-grown, fair-trade, French Roast coffee this morning on the boardwalk of Silverthorn’s Café. Last Sunday, I decided it was time for Boomer to learn how to do graphics. He, with some reluctance agreed. I asked that he draw a...
…yet another “link-post” from Jay & Boomer—It’s a comfortable 66ºF here on my back porch, after a string of very hot & dry days followed by a couple of severe thunderstorms causing damage around the city. Boomer & I are here in body only, but much as the former “Codger Lodge” would draw me away ...

As some of you may have noticed, my imagination frequently gets the better of me—which is precisely why I so missed writing the old Codger’s “Cyb...
I’m here on Jay’s back porch—OK, really on my back porch, but Jay has not updated that drawing yet—enjoying my mug of organically & shade-grown, fair-trade, French-Roast coffee, while Jay is out of sight drawing—something. According to MY replica “Pruett’s Pig Powders” thermometer (shown in the ...
While I am enjoying my mug of organically & shade-grown, fair-trade, Guatemalan-Roast coffee, my thoughts are of Wednesday’s catastrophic collapse of the Interstate 35W Mississippi River Bridge. I spent the entire day glued to the radio listening to the coverage of this tragedy, I couldn’t tear ...
By “Boomer” Jack Boardman At 6:05pm, the Interstate 35W bridge over the Mississippi suffered catastrophic failure and fell 64 feet carrying at least 50 vehicles into the river and the adjacent shores.
