  • Sympathy for the devil and to hell with the holy mob
    on Feb 13, 2011
    This entry was originally published in the February 2011 edition of Off Centre magazine"Do you mind if I as a tourist question?"Cause we've already bought a lottery ticket, a newspaper, some snacks. Mostly I want to ask a question. They don't mind."W...
  • Out of Iowa: on the bus
    on Aug 8, 2010
    When a winter wind sets to blowing across Iowa there isn't a lot to stop it or even slow it down. Just me, it seemed. Three days before Christmas, 1985. As I stood there with a hangover and my thumb out. Going home.Going nowhere, though. Nobody had t...

    on Aug 1, 2010
    Once you're in, you're in. The lineup, that is. U.S. border crossing. Cars ahead, cars behind. Sometimes even on each side, although we usually aim for the boonyville crossings to get this shit over quick.Americans fascinate me. And freak me out.For...
  • All through the night... flyin'
    on Aug 1, 2010
    Goin' through Winnemucca, bud. Through, through, through. Goin' to California. Open. Up. Your. Gol-den Gate... the way Tom Waits sings it in his Kerouac song. But that's tomorrow morning. Even Winnemucca is the middle of the night.The sun's going dow...
  • Hitchin' a ride
    on Jul 20, 2010
    I never pick up hitchhikers so where the hell did I get off, on this splendid autumn morning, suddenly deciding to become one?No problem. Cause I didn't expect anyone to pick me up. I'd agree with them if they didn't. And if anyone did decide to offe...
  • long walk in the snow
    on Jul 17, 2010
    It was on an odd whim that we set out on an unlikely walk in the snow. Tammy's idea. Let's dump a few things in the daypack and walk to Trinity Valley. Not a hot bath and lounge in front of the fireplace with a large glass of red wine.We were spendin...
  • Red dirt christmas
    on Jul 12, 2010
    So tell me about Christmas, 2005. I know, remembering Christmas is easy. Any given year is hard. Cause they're all pretty much identical.We tired of putting on the Christmas concert every year about the time the kids were old enough to start noticing...
  • The code for a trailer ball
    on Jul 10, 2010
    There's a line out there, a line that matters and I'd like to know for sure where it is. Because I've developed a powerful suspicion it isn't anywhere near where it should be.I'm talking about the line that's crossed when cops stop treating a citizen...
  • Shit happens fast
    on Jul 6, 2010
    "Uh-oh."She was talking about the deer, not the bike.I was monitoring the motorcycle in the mirror as he prepared to pass. Didn't see the deer coming out of the underbrush and onto the road. Just like she didn't see the bike. Until a fraction of a se...
  • Might have to get the weasel piss
    on Jul 5, 2010
    Nakusp or nothing in the short doomed search for used tire. No luck here and we hit the gravel with four round tires and a can of foam. Spare tire in a can. And optimism. Mostly that. The temptation was powerful to just get the can and go. Like we're...
