Apropos of nothing, I checked the “stats” part of my WordPress dashboard. I’ve written 6,763 posts since I started The Sundries Shack over 7 years ago. If I assume an average blog post length of 500 words (and that may be a bit low), that works out to 3,381,500 total words written over that time. […]

I’m happy to report that the Trusty Ford is back in its appointed place. The repairs were not cheap by any means, but the worst did not happen and, well, you guys came through in a way I could never have imagined. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I can not tell […]

Fair warning, readers and friends. I’ve been a bit restless with the blog. I can’t quite put my finger on what’s giving me an itch about The Sundries Shack, but I’m looking at the current blog layout as one possible (and easy to change) culprit. Don’t be surprised if I shake the theme up a […]

I know blogging has been slow here in the past few days, and my “slow” I mean “completely nonexistent”. I’ve been dealing with a bit of a health issue that’s slowed me down. But I’m feeling better this weekend (though not 100 percent) and I even felt like taking a walk! Blogging will recommence shortly. […]

In an effort to make The Sundries Shack a better place to find smart commentary on politics and pop culture, I’ve invited another guest writer to post here. Hey, it’s not going to get more smart around here with me as the only regular contributor, right? My friend Lyndsey Fifield is young, smart, witty and […]

Today is the sixth birthday of The Sundries Shack. That puts my humble little blog among […]

I’m going to be on the road pretty much all day tomorrow and I’ll have spotty access to the laptop until Monday night. I’m traveling to updstate New York to sing with my fledgeling choir.

For the past few months, I’ve been mulling over ways to make The Sundries Shack a more interesting place to visit. One of the changes I’ve been considering is adding a couple few guest bloggers to the roster, to give you all a change of pace and to add more character to the place. Well, […]
