Long Summer Days ~ Asbury Park, New Jersey

Long Summer Days. Take me back... I've got time, and let me start again.

Long Summer Days. Where I'd watch all the girls walk by dreaming if I were the King, she'd be my Queen.

Asbury Park, New Jersey was the place to spend those long Summer Days...  Here is the old Casino in her forlornness state over ten years ago.

Take me back... I've got time to for those Long Summer Days!

The Rusty Goose ~ Sing-A-Long

There's a catchy new Barn Dance on the Loose
Everyone knows it as the Rusty Goose
Take another sip of that Hard Apple Juice
And get out there and put your dancing to Use

And it goes like this:

A Honk-A a Tonk-A
A Honky Bonky Tonky 
A Honk-A a Tonk-A
A Honky Bonky Tonky

I'm a Rusty Goose
Not a Wonky Silly Donkey
I'm a Rusty Goose
Not a Loosey Floozy Moose
I'm a Rusty Goose
Not a Bonky Stompy Monkey
I'm a Rusty Goose
So let's all call it a Truce

Repeat indefinitely

Before you know it, you'll be singing it all day long!

And I say, It's all Right

Weather Forecast Calls for Snow

Ladies & Gentlemen

We have been informing you the past several days that it's going to snow a considerable amount within the next 24 hours and for some it already has started.

You may not like it...  But for God's Sakes pull yourself together and deal with it.

This has been a Public Service Announcement

Forgive Me Father

The term "Perfect Man" is the person who is pure in heart and is filled with the Holy Spirit.  This perfection does not include physical appearance and disability…  Simply Spiritually perfect and one whom does no sin.

After the first sin, he is no longer perfect…  Forgive me Father for I have sinned, therefore I am not perfect!

Ask and you shall Receive

Hang or Not to Hang Rosary Beads

A question I have pondered arose when seeing a car with Rosary Beads hanging from the rear view mirror.

Why are they hanging the Rosary Beads? To show Religion... Ethnicity... Witness... Or possibly just for the sheer looks and enjoyment of a Crucifix hanging. I personally don't have anything hanging from my mirror though I do enjoy the look of when I see it on other vehicles.

In New jersey it is illegal to hang anything from the rear view mirror. However, it really isn't enforced. But be warned, it will cost you from passing vehicle inspection if whatever you have is still hanging on your mirror at the time.

So my question is, If it's illegal to have anything including a Religious symbol hanging from your rear view mirror, does this make it a sin? Makes you think, doesn't it?!

Bird on a Cross

Up so high on a church's Steeple
Sits a Bird looking at the People
Whistling a tune mournfully Sang
In harmony as the church bell Rang

Way up high upon the church's Cross
Forever her flight is at a Loss
Whistling by night hopes of Flying
Whistling by day hopes of Dying

One by one a feather plucked will Fall
Plucked raw until there are none at All
Her painful song echoed in the Breeze
Taken far away beyond the Trees

Up so high on a church's Steeple
Sits a Bird looking at the People
Whistling a tune so sad to Sing
All because she has a broken WIng

He ain't Heavy, He's my Brother

If I'm laden in Pain
I'm laden with Sadness
That everyone's heart is Filled
With Health and Gladness

Full of Love for one Another

One of many sketches I created when the
Iraq Insurgency & War on Terror, Iraq War started in 2003

No Smoking

An abandoned Restroom in a high traffic area
where hundreds a day pass by not knowing it even exists.

No Flushing
No Washing
No Drying

The Night Stalker

In the deepest darkest phase of night when all is quiet and everyone is abed. The Cat prowls through the darkened hallways ready to pounce on whatever crosses her path.

Yes, it might even be you when you wake feeling peckish venturing into the kitchen for a snack. Her tiny paws wrap and tightly grip your ankle as fangs gently cling to your skin. Try as you might, you cannot brake free of the tireless Feline!

Hallowed Ground

As the tall Oak Trees drop their leaves one by one creating a thick blanket over the Hallowed Ground, it gives the Departed comfort knowing that Mother Nature is there watching from afar, keeping them warm for the harsh Winter before them.

Used Car

You're going to need an Abacus to keep track of all the shit you'll be getting in this Beauty!  You know all those normal people out there that freak out when they get a hair-line scratch? With this custom, "One of a Kind" paint job, a scratch or two will add to it's authenticity.

Don't forget those kick ass deflatable All-Terrain Tires and a cooling system that can't be beat... The faster you go, the cooler it gets. Who needs an Ice Scraper when there's no windows to frost up. Talk about not worrying having to be at work on time. Just turn the key and say a few Hail Marys that she'll start up... But just think about all that cash you'll be saving when she doesn't.

Walk, run or hail a cab to the Auto Mall to get your personalized custom Ride.  Tell em Unkle Steve sent yea!

A Blustery Day ~ A Time to Mourn

A Blustery Day
And a time to Mourn
To one who has Past
The day they were Born

A life that Started
Has come to an End
A fight that has Lost
What she could not Fend

All dressed in pure White
She was laid to Rest
In a silkened Shroud
Red Rose on her Breast

This pain too shall Pass
Broken Hearts so Torn
This Blustery Day
This sad time to Mourn

Often wonder how and why things end up where they are.

This River Boat many miles from the nearest river is sitting forsaken along Interstate Highway 78 in Shartlesville, Pennsylvania.  See the new Gallery "River Boat" on Forsakenly Departed.

Welcome Aboard the small Suwannee River Boat which is permanently Dry-Docked!

Overgrown by Nature

Completely Overgrown and Engulfed by Nature that all you see is the second floor.  It's been quite some time since this house has seen life and now the only life that's left is the gnarling, twisted thorns of Multiflora Rose.

Just a little pruning and a coat of paint should do the trick... No?
