How I spent my Sunday

We created a brick landing outside our garage entry door in the back yard.  This is the somewhat finished project. Below that are pics of the work in progress. (click to enlarge)  It’s about 44 inches by 9 feet long. The plan is to eventually extend the walkway to our shed in the back […]


Buying concert tickets is nothing but a scam

I don’t go to concerts very often.  I’ve been to a few over the years but probably not as many as most people.  I have seen some of the biggest names in person though.  I’m talking Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Monkees, Elton John, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Cher, […]


What are you watching?

We’ve really been into watching and binging on TV shows.  Here are some we’ve watched in the last couple years and what I thought of them..

The Sopranos  (HBO)  ☆☆☆☆☆  The best of the lot. Dexter  (Showtime)  ☆☆☆☆  Really enjoyed this show. Breaking Bad  (Netflix)  ☆☆☆☆  Took me a while to get into it but […]


B&P Turns 14

It was fourteen years ago yesterday that the very first post appeared on Bits & Pieces.  It’s been a wild and crazy ride at times.  I’ve posted some interesting, weird and funny things along the way… many of which you’ve contributed.  Thank you!

The Monster Within?

I was messing around with my phone’s camera the other day.  This is a somewhat blurry close-up of my eye. I think the square thing in the pupil is the reflection of the camera. But I was surprised when I noticed the evil-looking face off to the upper-left of the iris.  I couldn’t […]

Dogs of Spring

Gus and Trixie enjoying the fist morning of the spring season. Of course, being the midwest, we woke up to giant snowflakes that would accumulate on the grass then melt away and another batch come thru and accumulate and melt off. This is the third batch of snow (that I saw anyway).  The dogs […]

Happy 104th Birthday Dad

My dad would have been 104 today if he were alive. He was born on this date is 1912. Dad didn’t get much education as he needed to work to help feed his family. 

Work was hard to find when he was a young man. Dad worked as a farmer and took a job for a […]

Winter Storm

We’ve been really lucky this winter as far as bad weather goes.  It was 78°F over the weekend here.  This morning we woke up to this. It’s a short lived storm dropping anywhere from 3–8 inches of heavy wet snow. The winds are really blowing, gusting up to 45mph.  The snow is supposed to end by noon today […]

Happy Birthday Mom

My mom would have turned 95 today. Not sure when this photo was taken but I think she looks like she was about 30. 

She died in 1995 at the age of 74.
