I Dream of Jeanie

A man walks into a bar. He’s normal size but has a tiny head, about the size of a small cantaloupe. The bartender gives him his desired drink and leans against the back bar. After a few minutes he says, “I’m sorry, but I just gotta ask. Were you born like that?” “Not at all,” […]

The Cowboy Who Loves You So True

It’s said you have to walk that lonesome valley for yourself. Nobody else can go it for you. I was heading down trail—that long lonesome trail—intent on making my own way. I was once so lonely … I was once without you. I ain’t much for words. I’m just a hired hand, working for wages […]

Danny, Suni, and Perri

Did you all miss me last week? Of course you did. Well, worry not. I’m back from vacation and rarin’ to go. Now on to this week’s adventure. I had a surprise visit today from two old friends who came all the way from Spain just to see me. They claimed they had come to […]

I Saw Jesus

My name is Andrew Joyce, and for those of you who keep up with the adventures of Danny the Dog, I’m his human and he’s my dog. He’s always writing about me, telling you nice people what an idiot I am and that I drink too much. But I want you to know right here […]

Danny’s Freedom

I’ve just been reading a little Billy Shakespeare and listening to Kris Kristofferson. Genius will tell out. What got to me this day was how they both spoke to having nothing.

Someone’s Been Ridin’ My Mule

Someone’s been ridin’ my mule. She ain’t the same no more. She kicks up a fuss when I try to ride her. She kicks up a fuss when I take her in to town. She’s always brayin’ at what I do. She’s never done that before. Someone’s been ridin’ my mule in the rain. She’s […]

Bye-Bye Baby

I wake up ’bout midnight, every night. Just cain’t sleep no more because my woman’s drivin’ me crazy. I told her a long, long time ago she was makin’ me nuts. Now, to keep my peace of mind, I’m gonna have to kill her. I’m walkin’ the dark, lonely streets, gun in hand. Lookin’ for […]

I See God

I see God in every face. Just people living their lives. People surviving, getting through life the best they can. You can see it in their faces, in their eyes, in their smiles. I see perseverance, I see love. I see all of us growing old and learning. I see God … and once again […]
