 Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

-- Dean Vernon Wormer

Living out of boxes is no way to go through life, either.

Summers are busy here in the Wisconsin Northwoods. We have the weekly newspaper and I also manage another weekly south of here. Starting with Memorial Day, we put out a magazine every two weeks to welcome visitors to God's Country. We have our own special sections and we have regional editions.

It is a busy time.

Sadly, that's meant my efforts at unpacking have slowed. Which is a nice way of saying I haven't been unpacking -- either my boxes or my burdens. Since at least May.

That will change Saturday, even though I'll spend my morning taking photos of a race that includes 2,000 bicycle riders though the gently rolling hills of the Northwoods.

Then I'll visit one of the local history museums to get an armful of historical photos to publish with our Time Machine column, a favorite feature of most newspapers where we recap stories from the past.

After that, I'll probably take some photos at our local Oktoberfest, where the feast is cooked by a retired, Bavarian-trained chef named Maximillion. (He has referred to a competitor as having Scheiße wienerschnitzel. Shit.)

Then, then I'll return home to restart the unboxing process. 

The truth is I love my job and any chance I have to cover my community I'll not just take but enjoy.

But I will also reconcentrate efforts to unbox.

Home needs to be a refuge rather than an afterthought. I need my cooking equipment so I can have over hungry friends. I also need to feel comfortable in my confines.

Here's to serious unpacking as the summer season cools.

Peace unto Ukraine and peace and an unboxed life unto you my brothers and sisters.


  1. My scores were very low on the 3 credit bureaus, the files contained inquiries, eviction, and medical bills, and i had no real trade lines. I needed capital for a business opportunity i had, therefore I needed to fix my credit and I needed it real quick. I was introduced to gaspertime research for help and what appealed to me was the fact that they were able to do the job firsthand and later get paid after just 20% upfront payment. in a matter of days i got a mail that the issue has been resolved and i could go ahead to confirm, i confirmed and i was really elated at how quick, efficient, and professional they got. i had an earlier dealing with someone in the past and it was nothing to write home about. I was reaped off 3 times by fake credit repair imposters but Luke helped me. They deleted the eviction, inquiries and other bad entries preventing me from being qualified for the loan. for anyone who needs his service contact him at
