Strangest Holiday Ever...

Never could get the hang of Easter.  Nailing somebody to a tree and calling it ‘Good Friday’.  Don’t sound too good to me.  The dead rising from the grave.  Really?  Hasn’t the whole zombie craze pretty much run it’s course?  And what’s with the damn rabbit and eggs?  Somebody needs a biology lesson.  But at […]

Sorry, Friendship Over...

I have one less friend today.  I got defriended/unfriended/banned/exiled or whatever the hell they call it on social media the other night.  Seems the ex friend, who is a, shall we say, rather ardent supporter of the trumpenführer and the current corporate dictatorship, took exception, finally to my anti said dictator tweets and posts.  Took long […]

Walk down Duval St. in Key West or just about any street in Maui and chances are you are going to hear a lot of different languages.  Spanish, Hawaiian, Russian, Chinese, German, French, Japanese, and whatever they are passing off as verbal communication in New York City can be heard.  (Seriously, how the hell do you […]

Back in January a friend of mine announced his parent was terminally ill.  He shared his grief on social media and got a lot of support from his friends.  It also inspired me to write an unusually long post about my personal experiences on dealing with the death of a loved one, and the nitty gritty […]

6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

It's Something Almost All Of Us Go Through...

Ok, no island pictures, no political rants this time.  We are gonna talk about something which almost all of us has had to face at one time, the death of a loved one.  This is a long post so please be patient and take some time to read it through.  Lots of important stuff here. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Good Riddance You Son Of A Bitch...

It’s not often one can revel in the fact someone else has died, but in this case, an exception can be made.  Fidel Castro, Cuban dictator and all around asshole finally smoked his last cigar this past Friday.  For those of you not born in the 1950’s, Castro was one of the three big bogey men […]

Stay Out Of Retail...

As the riots over towels and toilet paper continue, I sit back out here in the middle of the Pacific and remember with great fondness, the many years I worked retail during the holiday season…just kidding.  It was hell on earth. If you work retail, number one…quit now.  Get out while you still have some semblance […]

Once again, as it seems every year, our country shows the rest of the world how stupid we really are.  Yes boys and girls, and those who can’t make up their minds, it’s our favorite time of the year once again…the day after Thanksgiving.  Instead of relaxing and digesting the big dinner from the day before, […]

And if anyone tries to throw a guilt trip on you for enjoying so much good food, whack ’em upside the head with a drumstick.  The only thing you should feel guilty about is body slamming Gramma to get at the last slice of pie.  But then again, she should not have gotten between you […]

Are You Not Entertained?...

My goodness.  Quite a spectacle wasn’t it?  Lots of theatrics, drama, comic relief, and in the end, everybody lost, except of course for the owners of this country who are laughing at us whilst sitting on their luxury yacht sipping champagne, eating the meat of some endangered species, and grabbing women’s genitals. Let me preface […]

Key West.  This week is the infamous party which nobody is allowed to mention by name on a blog, post, in social media, or mixed company, because the owners of said party don’t understand how to internet.  But no matter, it’s going on now and Duval is rocking away.  Here is a link to the […]

The Mysterious Maui Jeeps...

I’ve notice something rather odd lately.  Everywhere I go on Maui I see jeeps.  Lots of jeeps.  But not just regular everyday jeeps.  Most of these said jeeps are late model 4 door Wranglers in white with black tops.  They are all over the place.  One day I must have counted 3 dozen.  Just driving […]
