Introduce Yourself, right on!

Hi! I'm Kerry, and I hate writing introductions. I hate writing bios. I hate trying to explain who I am in a short synopsis. Don't get me wrong, love writing. I enjoy sharing my thoughts, feelings, and experiences, but I feel a strange aversion to writing these. There's something very off-putting, seemingly narcissistic, when writing... Continue Reading →

Settle the Score

Can you believe it's March 1st already?! I can. It's inevitable. Time keeps tick, tick, ticking away, but as you age, at a seeming accelerated rate. "Is my clock broken? It's already 11pm on a Tuesday!" I exclaimed to my wife last night while nestled on the couch after a rare evening out with a... Continue Reading →

The Trade-off

Two posts in one day. What is going on Kerry? Well, I have a slow work day and a hell of a lot on my mind, I guess. When I decided to leave social media two months ago I hadn't given much thought of what I would do with the huge void of time it... Continue Reading →

4 Weeks Post-Op

I can't believe it's already been a month since I was swiftly wheeled out of the hospital and plopped into the passenger seat of our mid-sized sedan like a giant 200lb sack of potatoes, mere hours after having the inside of my right ear infiltrated and tinkered with in hopes of improved hearing. At least... Continue Reading →

The Justification

Whenever I would express desire to leave social media, ironically, ON social media, everyone and their brother felt the need to chime in on why they couldn't. They'd ask me why and when I would give my reasons, it was often met with defensive and sometimes condescending murmurs of how "it doesn't affect them that... Continue Reading →

Day 9 post-op

It's been 9 days since my surgery, and needless to say, there have been some ups and downs. Today was my first post-op follow-up with the surgeon, and things are going well and look good. Well, at least what the doctor tells me. I wouldn't know for sure since I've never had this surgery before,... Continue Reading →

Day 3

It's been three days since my surgery, and I'm feeling kind of depressed and alone. The restrictions and uncertainty have me feeling anxious and uneasy, like I'm a burden to my wife and my job. I'm doing relatively well considering they sliced into my eardrum, cut out a bone, replaced it with a prosthetic, took... Continue Reading →


Edit: If you're reading this and feel like you're missing key details, I wrote a blog earlier this morning (1/17/2023) titled "Surgery" Well, I made it out of surgery alive! Hurray! Ooouch! All that excited celebrating was too much for this ol' boy. Best tone it down a bit now. Kidding! My ear and throat... Continue Reading →


I have surgery this morning on my middle ear at 7:15am. It's called a stapedectomy to remove the tiny bones, called stapes, and replace them with implants to hopefully improve my hearing. I'm anxious, nervous, and all the other ouses that are involved when undergoing something that could have an unlikely outcome I don't desire,... Continue Reading →

11 Days

Let me start off saying I LOVE Cher! Cher! You know? Cher! Big, tall, Cher. Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves? Big, strong, passionate voiced, Cher? The Way of Love? Oh, that song! So fucking good! I've been singing more lately. I haven't done that in over a month with all my weekends occupied over the past... Continue Reading →

Rainy Days and Mondays

You ever find you're talking to yourself and feeling old? Like, sometimes you'd like to quit and nothing' ever seems to fit? Lately I've been hanging around with nothing to do but frown. Well, not really. I've always got waaaay to much do do and apparently much more that Karen Carpenter did! But I must... Continue Reading →

One Last Show for the road

Editors note: This was originally written and posted on my Facebook on Friday, December 16th, 2022. This is me holding down the fort and hosting duties at a couple of our shows. Ugh! Where to begin and how do I say all the things I want to say? I did something like this many years... Continue Reading →
