“Borden’s Blather”

Entry One In FRIENDS-OF-KUCHED” Week

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT …

Jim Borden’s Blog – “Borden’s Blather” – Is The Writer’s Inherently Charming, Intelligent And Witty Presentation, And Well, It’s Simply Neat Fun To Hang Out There …   

 

FROM JIM ABOUT JIM

… Emerson’s words capture perfectly the kind of life I hope to live:

“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

 

HOW I SEE IT …

J. Bo (*) Shares Moments And Curiosities Of Everyday Life As Testimony That Is Immediately Pleasing And Satisfying To The Reader’s Curiosity And Appetite To Learn From An Engaging Educator.

The Range Of Topics, Depth Of Research, And Knowledge … Reveals A Tidy Nugget Of  Purposeful Information – A Teachable Moment – Entertaining The Reader (Guest) Especially Well With Reason To Come Back For Seconds And Thirds …

“Jim’s Comments Are The Real Gems Of Borden’s Blather.  I Was Welcomed The Very Moment I Connected With Jim.  He Seemingly Answers Every Comment, And Does So With Genuine Interest And No Small Serving Of Sharp, Observational Humor.  You’ll Go From A Smile To A Laugh.”  

And Leave With A Reminder That There Are Genuinely Good Folks Blogging On WordPress.  

 

MY FAVORITE POST

All Of Them …  

But If I Had To Narrow It Down To A Couple Dozen, I’d Say Don’t Miss Jim’s Weekly Feature “Monday Music”

Spoiler Alert:  It’s Published On Monday’s And It’s About Music.

 

SEE FOR YOURSELF

“Long-winded talk with no real substance. Drop in daily for your regular dose of nonsensical blather.”  JQB

MUSICAL PAIRING

MICK’S NOTE:

(*) I Didn’t Ask Jim’s Permission To Refer To Him As “J. Bo”  … Any Resemblance To J. Lo Would Be Coincidental And False.  J. BoLo Share A First Initial, A Period, A Space (Not Literally Together … The Same Space Between Names … Uh, The Long Key On A Keyboard), And The Second Letter In Their Last Name. 

That’s All I’m Saying …

“And, Thanks, Jim.”

Déjà Vu Doo

An excerpt from ‘Café Baci’ – Copyright © 2011 by Michael Kuch

Continued from Claire, Darling

JACK HAD BEEN HERE

One too many times.  He laid still, silent as death.  His body stiff as a plank of gnarled hardwood, like rigor mortis had set in, harpooning him to the mattress.  His skin prickled with chills from a sleepless night of cold sweat, suffocated by dreadful night terrors, awakened by sudden fear and anxiety.  Continue reading “Déjà Vu Doo”

That’s What She Almost Said …

This post originally appeared December 4, 2019 on Kuched.  Though it received many positive comments and views, I deleted it.  Thought it may have been a little Self Inflamed.  Ego Rendered.  Get Over Myselfish.  But, its Just Me … Talking.  I own these words.  Cryptic to Gospel.  Added a bunch more on the version below.  If you think I’m writing this Friction Fiction about you?  Nah.  It’s All About Me even when it isn’t …

Take It Easy (Kuched Over)

EAGLES

Well I’m a-runnin’ down the road try’n to loosen my load

I’ve got seven women on my mind

Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me

One says she’s a friend of mine.

 

KUCHED

Well I’m a-runnin’ down the street try’n to loosen my heat

I’ve got eleven women on my mind

Six that want to atone me, four that want to clone me

Only one says she’s a friend of mine.

 

“Take It Easy” Songwriters: Jackson Browne, Glenn Frey

Ah-May-Zing?

OF COURSE IT IS

If You Haven’t Already … I’m Asking Nicely … 

Now is the perfect time to stop using this insufferably hyperbolic Idiom.

To the habitual user (serial abuser), a kind request – consideration – to please refrain from another impulsive chorus …

… The annoyingly slow-as-molasses, exaggerative annunciation (of its three trite syllables) could use a sabbatical from popular social commentary vernacular. Continue reading “Ah-May-Zing?”
