Mary Washington College, Fredericksburg, VA, June 2017 (3)

Pictured are the Amphitheater, Mason Hall, The Link, Randolph Hall, Russell Hall, Brent House and Marshall Hall.


The Amphitheater.  Sorry the first picture is so blurry.


Me, performing “Richard III.”  “NOW IS THE WINTER OF OUR DISCOVFEFE.”  I was the toast of Sunken Road.  The performance was brief; I only know two lines of “Richard III” — one, if I get stage fright.

Seriously, though, if you people haven’t checked out David Morrissey’s treatment of its famous monologue, then you don’t know what you’re missing.  You can find it on Youtube.


I have no idea who I am supposed to be saluting here.  My Alumbud taking the picture?  Any competent commanding officer would take one look at that gut of mine and then BUST ME RIGHT DOWN DOWN TO PRIVATE.




Mason Hall and Randolph Hall, with the above-ground “Link” between them — a new product of the campus-wide remodeling.  Previously, there was a line of dorm rooms unofficially known as “The Tunnel,” beneath a massive stone porch overlooking Fredericksburg.  That porch was a great place to read, and I’m sorry to see it gone.

Another blurry picture — this one of Russell Hall.  The old steps have been upgraded.



Seen from Russell is … Brent Hall?  Is it weird if I have no memory of that building — and I lived right across the way over at Bushnell Hall?



The parking lots at the southeast corner of campus, behind Russell and Marshall Hall.  Running behind those is Sunken Road, where a few of my friends had off-campus housing.  There was a smallish apartment building (north of this spot) where various classmates of mine in the early 1990’s could be found residing or visiting … was it called Sunrise Apartments?




Marshall Hall.




I PROMISE I’ll stop with the covfefe jokes tonight!!

And I know it’s poor form to publish a blog post containing only memes.  (That’s what social media is for.)  But these two were just too good not to share with as wide an audience as possible.

This blog WAS supposed to be about writing, when I started it once upon an idealistic time.  And typos are an occupational hazard for writers, so I figure it’s okay.

Anyway, I cannot take credit for creating these … I found them on Facebook.






*Covfefe dooon’t like it …
ROCK the Casbah, ROCK the Casbah!
Covfefe dooon’t like it …
ROCK the Casbah, ROCK the Casbah!

*In best doctor voice: “Okay, now turn your head and covfefe.”

*”Covfefe at me, Bro!!!”


Okay, I will stop making these jokes tonight.

I was chatting with Dennis Villelmi today, and I told him the entire situation is stupid on so many levels. The president is stupid for tweeting “covfefe;” WE are stupid for finding it so funny, as though we were a group of junior high school students; the press sounds at least a little stupid for asking about an obvious typo’s “meaning;” Trump’s supporters are stupid for buying into the idea that it was a message in Arabic; Sean Spicer is stupid for trying to pretend that it was … a coded message? To a “small number of people?”

At the same time he’s trying to avoid the implication that Trump or his people are passing information to the Russians?



Damn, this is one good cup of covfefe.

Trumps’ presidency is such a disaster that, at this point, our only hope may be to launch a team of plucky oil drillers into space.

Every time I mention “Armageddon” (1998), someone makes a joke about its Morgantastic, Freemaniffic contemporary, “Deep Impact.”  I tell people it is on my list of things to watch, but I still haven’t even seen “Predestination” (2014), “The Fifth Element” (1997) or a single episode of “Breaking Bad” (2008 – 2013).
