Grandpa Larry: Let the Reeling Proceed

I decided to go to D.C. and find one to interview. If you are not already reeling from the incredible unraveling of events this year, then come along with me to Washington, D.C. where I have ventured, to try to get some understanding of how this current political election is going to turn out. I […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Desert Man

A wiry man with a scraggly beard wearing only a pair of ragged cut-off trousers climbed over a rocky ridge and pulled himself up onto a large flat rock and hunkered down, contemplating the city before him. He had lived in that city. He had grown up with ordinary parents in an ordinary house; gone […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Navigating Reentry by Former Upper Atmosphere Flyer Grandpa Larry

Homer showed up at the back door again on Saturday. I swung the door wide and let him in. I know it’s safe because he and his wife never go out and I’m the original hermit, so there is little chance that we’ve had contact with the virus. He sat at the kitchen table. “I’m […]

Grandpa Larry’s Not-So-Instant Solution for all the World’s Problems

I heard a knock at the back door. When I went to answer it, I found my neighbor, Homer, with a bruise on his forehead, and it looked like he had been crying. “What happened to you?” I asked. “I don’t want to tell you,” he replied. “Can I come in?” With no need for […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Where is the Air?

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Westward Ho

I remember a trip my wife, Sue and I took quite a few summers ago, back when we were both young and footloose and fancy-free. We had traveled to Chicago to visit my grandmother and then decided to head out to Seattle to see one of my wife’s cousins. The trip to Chicago had been […]

Stretching all the away around the world just below the Arctic Circle there is a large boreal forest. It’s been called the Amazon of the North, and the earth’s green crown. It is the largest intact old-growth forest on the planet. Canada alone contains one billion acres from Newfoundland to the Yukon Territory. Three billion […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Food for a Flower

My flower, If you were a nasturtium, there would be no problem. I would look at your leaves or your buds and if they were not blooming as they should or a little misshapen or not full color, I would determine that something was wrong. I’d take a sample of the soil you were growing […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: One World and Another

I have just returned from a place where the process of eating was the sampling of one another’s personalities. And working was a rearrangement of each other’s possessions. Now whether these possessions were actual or imagined was not perfectly clear, or whether subsequent rearrangement was necessary after each affair, not clear either. In one instance […]

Grandpa Larry’s Random Reminiscence: Facing Up

File this one under “daring escape attempts.” A man in Chicago quite a few years ago was driving a taxi and his fare put a finger to the back of the driver’s head and demanded his money. The cabbie had no idea it was only the man’s finger and in desperation decided he was going […]
