Greetings, Salutations and a Hearty Hello.

'Ramblings'...'Meanderings' really does sum up what you may find here. A short story, a quote or something philosophical all with very little organization.

It is my hope, that with your interaction, we can experience life more fully through ideas, thoughts and questions. You see working together we are all smarter than each of us individually. And thanks, sincerely thank you for sharing your most valuable asset, time, with me as we Ramble and Meander through these pages.

What Can You Do Really Fast?

Recently there was a contest online. You were to answer this question:
What can you do really fast?
Here is my non-winning entry.

What can I do really fast is an interesting question and rather easy to answer when you are young. Back in ‘the day’ I could sprint with the best. When working as a rodeo clown & bullfighter being fast and light on your feet was more than just a handy skill. It could be lifesaving. But what about when the speed of youth has faded, what is your claim then?
As a natural progression and with very little special training I have become one of the worlds quickest at (drum roll please) ‘forgetting what I was doing’. (Cymbal crash) Please hold your applause until the end. Yes, it appears that my great talent lay dormant for years only to recently be discovered along with the gray hair that had been hiding, just beneath my scalp. Uses for my new found endowment are currently being researched. Thus far little value has been found in the questions at the bottom of the stairs, ‘Did I just come down or was I going up?’, as with the refrigerator query, ‘Putting something in or taking it out?’ My investigation for methods to successfully apply my new found skill will continue. But please excuse me, I must stop for now. I have to write an article about: What I can do really fast.
Where did I put my pen….?


  1. Well, I can definately relate to this one!!

  2. Very laugh out loud funny Marc! It looked like a winning entry to me. I too am running slower, and forgetting faster every day. Coincidently, I wrote about my latest “forgetting that I was cooking” adventure in an email I wrote yesterday. My autobiography could feature an entire chapter titled Forgetting That I Was Cooking. I’ll edit my latest cooking incident from the email version to a blog post for you to read. It should be posted shortly.


  3. While doing the dishes this a.m. I was reflecting on both your post above, Marc, and the post on your blog, Randy, when I "remembered that I forgot" my own wedding anniversary last year. This may be commonplace for you guys but it is monumental for a woman!!

    Does this make me the "winner"?##@@!!??
