Hudson’s View: Bird Dog of Alcatraz

        Quite the week here at WallyWorld. We experienced a series of events which significantly changed the face of how we get along, treat each other with respect and build or tear down trust. I’m not speaking of the tragedies in Paris last week; although my puppy heart goes out to the Parisians and especially Diesel the… Read more »

Squeaky and Bootie, a fairy-tale romance

(a reading delivered at rehearsal dinner just recently…)   Once upon a time in a land faraway on the rocky coast of Fairfield county, and following 48 hours of labor, there was born a lad named Wallace Booth. His parents, not well of mind, decided he should carry the nickname Booth which often times created much confusion down at the… Read more »

Hudson’s View – The Meal in the Bowl goes round and round…

Finally…fall is upon us! The leaves are falling, the squirrels are throwing nuts at me from the trees and Woody, our woodchuck, is almost reachable as he’s moving slowly after adding a few pounds this summer. The best news is that we can put our bathing suits away for a while and not be so self-conscious. My brown fur suit… Read more »

Paper Route and Puppy Rout

  With Newspaper Carrier Day on September 4th comes both a celebration of the job for many individuals, but also horrid memories for others like myself; who felt the wrath of both customers and creatures while working my paper route.

When one gets older the concept of cooking comes much more easily. Like life, much of developing one’s cooking ability comes with a bit of “in the field” experience and a great degree of common sense. Common sense is a learned trait though, as this story will confirm… I went to a small college in Western Pennsylvania. Quite a venture… Read more »

“I don’t know what’s more exhausting about parenting: the getting up early, or acting like you know what you’re doing.” ― Jim Gaffigan, from his book, Dad Is Fat With Father’s Day upon us, it seemed appropriate to have a Father’s Day post.  Aside from Jim Gaffigan’s musings on fatherhood, I’m inspired also by Jimmy Fallon who tweeted this week… Read more »

Hi everybody, my name is WallyWord…I’m a blogging addict, and it’s been seven months since my last post. Impressive as it may be to give something up for seven months; this particular stay of addiction isn’t encouraging.  With a job which takes me daily to the bottom of Manhattan and is a time-eating large commute – looking at the computer… Read more »

Subway Serious – railing on the hottest ride in town

  With the good fortune of recently being hired by a well-known company to work at their corporate offices in NYC downtown, I’ve been re-introduced to a form of transportation used by thousands daily. The NYC Subway. I’ve commuted to NYC for most of my 30+ years in the workforce; this is the first time that it’s been necessary for… Read more »

There’s an old saying which is that “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Those that know this author well know that I’ve always been a chowhound; but that label and the above statement have been even truer for me over the last several weeks. I’ve recently started working for a large global company based in downtown… Read more »
