With President Trump pumping new life into the deadly coal-mining vocation, I’d be remiss not to relate one of my family’s favorite mine disaster stories.

AMEND CORNER: Ready or not, I’m back

If you have been in the habit of reading The Amend Corner over the last dozen or so years, you probably have noticed that it has been absent for the past month.

It’s been a sports-eventful summer for this normally-sedentary TV addict. My nephew Trey’s early bachelor party last month entailed 18 holes of Cody golf followed by a “cornhole” tournament. (Google it; the sport is sweeping the nation.) I’ve also recently gotten back together with my teenage love, bowling. After my all-time high of 227 weeks ago, my love has increased 10-fold.

Well, for months I’d been itching for another Billings trip, and I got ‘er done the weekend before the Fourth of July. And again I feared my manhood might be in question over my excitement to “shop ‘til I drop.” But why should that be so shameful anyway? I mean, who doesn’t like to look good once in a while, decked out in some spanking new duds?

MY LOUSY WORLD: Long-term memories

I hate being cut off, like last week in Bloedorn Lumber when a burly, elderly customer began telling me, Sean Johnson and a rival roofer a lengthy, tedious joke.

As if we didn’t have enough violence in this country today, somebody had to take a shot at politicians preparing to play baseball.

Once again I’ve had a few random epiphanies that I can’t let go to waste. That’s the thing about brilliant observances when you’re old, alone and eccentric — one finds few opportunities to share with neighbors when one lives in a dumpster.

Reservoir fishing fun for the family while waiting for area rivers to clear

With the rivers running the color of hot chocolate, and possibly another month before they clear, I was getting antsy to catch some fish.

In case you missed it, a big protest march took place here in the U.S. last Saturday.

Our president promised to “Make America great again” during his campaign.

Well, nearly five months into his term, he doesn’t seem to have made much progress. In fact, we may actually have gone backward in some areas.
