It's quite the hat.

This Old Moriarty Hat

Who owns a hat for 50 years?  Well, if it’s a Moriarty hat, perhaps you understand why. Getting ready to shovel the driveway one cold morning last winter, I reached to the top shelf of the hall closet for a hat.  My fingers felt the double-thick headband of my old Moriarty hat tucked up out of sight.  I pulled it[Read More…]

OK Boomer If you haven’t already heard about it, the term “OK Boomer” has gone viral. It’s the Millenial and Generation Z way of giving the older generation the middle finger for complaining about younger people’s behavior and commenting on issues such as the environmental crisis that will be left for them to solve.

1970 YELLOW MG MIDGET (NOT MINE).

The Midget. The Mountain. The Girl.

The Midget Was Brand-New And The Color Of Ballpark Mustard. No more than 200 miles on the odometer, when the idiot trying to pass me spun out of control and totaled my new MG Midget.

POW POW Not every reader has experienced the joy of powder skiing. Showing skiers scribing graceful lines on blank fields of bluish white is part of our skiing media culture.
