It's A Lifestyle, Not A Fad...

2017 marks 15 years since I began a long, sometimes difficult, but always rewarding move towards a minimalist lifestyle.  Back in 2002 I was living in a house which I owned, and owed money on.  I had credit card debt, motorcycle loans, and had even bought a second piece of property, namely a rv lot […]

In case you have been wondering where everyone’s favorite mermaid has been hiding lately, Nikki had a busy year ending with her marriage to the luckiest guy on the planet, Jaco, followed by a wild, at least according to Facebook, honeymoon in Thailand.  Things have settled down and she is back to work doing what she […]

Yeah, I'm Still Here...

I know, postings have been slim.  I’ve been doing nothing special lately and really don’t have much new stuff to report.  The main thing is getting through the interminable holidays finally and now life can be normal again.  I’m really not much for all the hoopla and it just seems to drag on forever.  At […]

Just Remember This...

If the sun sets behind the clouds, it’s all good.  If the sun sets in front of the clouds, we are in deep trouble. Saw a couple whales out there whilst photoing the sunset but they were too far off to catch with the camera.  I’ll get some shots eventually. Capt. Fritter

So, you made it through the holiday season.  You put in all those extra hours.  You went the extra mile for the customer as well as the company.  You came in early, stayed late, missed all the holiday fun so you could hit those sales goals, complete the inventories, and get those TPS reports filed […]

Whew!  If you are reading this, in this current dimension in which we exist, congratulations.  You survived 2016.  A lot of people didn’t.  So if you are reading this from a dimension beyond the grave, drop a comment and let us know how things are.  Just curious. It was a helluva year.  If there is […]

Remember HWSNBN?  You should.  Most of this blog centered around his antics during 2013 and 14.  For those of you new to the Fritter, HWSNBN, (He Who Shall Not Be Named), is a greedy bastard of a developer who bought out the Oceanside Marina on Stock Island where I used to reside on my little […]

Still Strumming His Six String...

Wow, Jimmy is 70 today.  What an amazing life and he ain’t done yet. But if you ask me, I think we go a bit overboard celebrating his birthday what with the decorations, gift giving and all. But, who else’s birthday are you gonna celebrate this time of the year?  Nope, can’t think of anyone, […]

Yeah, I’m in my usual holiday mood.  Watching a Xmas Carol in reverse so it has a happy ending doesn’t even help.  Maybe someone will write a version where Scrooge joins the Ghostbusters and finally kicks those asshole spirits into the next dimension where they belong. Hawaii is no different when it comes to the […]

I decided to expand the evil empire even further and have opened a Pinterest account.  I’m still trying to figger out all the ins and outs of the damn thing but I do have a couple boards up now.  And if you notice when you hover over an image most anywhere on the blog you […]

Off the Grid, Hawaiian Style - It's Fun To Look...

And dream a little now and then.  You never know what dreams may come true. One minute you could be stuck in a foggy, cold, grey, dreary ass town in the middle of the shittiest shithole state in the union, next minute you are sitting on the beach in Maui.  So dreams are good.  Let’s […]

Allow me please, to interrupt the Off The Grid series because I came across a couple articles in the local Key West fish wrapper which I want to expound upon.  The Sunday edition has two stories:  One in regards to the infamous shopping center with a wallymart planned for Rockland Key.  You’ll need to buy a […]

In the previous post about living off the grid, Hawaiian Style, I mentioned the possibility of buying a piece of land here in Hawaii and building a small house for less than the cost of new vehicle.  Would you like to see an example? Say hello to Kristie Wolfe.  Kristie has made a nice little […]

In the previous post about Living Off The Grid, Hawaiian Style, I talked at length about the unaffordability of mainstream housing in the islands, at least when it comes to buying something.  Which leaves renting or going with something off the grid and/or tiny.  When one goes off the grid to live, there are three […]
