Exceprt From The Latest Column
November 27, 2014

Americans went to the polls this month to elect a bit more than one-third of the United States Senate and the entire House of Representatives.

Faced with a Congress they approved of at about a ten percent rate, and the opportunity to do something about it, their message was clear:

We are not happy with our government. We are unwilling to do anything about.

What They're Saying About Gaylon Kent


"A funny and creative writer."
-
Robert Kovacik, Anchor, KNBC-TV, Los Angeles

"Fun stuff, Gaylon...The Diary of a Nobody is a fun, voyeuristic view into the daily tedium that we all slog through. Sparrow reminds us that food, (dog) poop, work and weather are all funny and frequent themes that bring us together, even if we don’t always talk about them. Gaylon’s day-by-day publishing schedule keeps you coming back for more, rooting for Sparrow..."

Exceprts From Recent Entries:

Wednesday November 26
I am pleased to report the cat has mellowed out…A bit…She is no longer hissing constantly at Her Majesty and she actually is letting me pet her on occasion and even slept with me last night curled up, as usual, in the crook of my leg, where my knee bends…I felt terrible displacing her for my standard 4am constitutional, but she's used to it and was back in place a few minutes after I returned.

Tuesday November 25
The car keys are gone…We have no idea what happened to them…Her Majesty and I came home from the store, I parked the car on the street, we plowed the driveway, moved the car in, removed the groceries and they haven't been seen since.

Monday November 24
Also, the Family BakeOff was held…Her Majesty wins this every time we are able to hold it - despite the fact The Wife is a bit better baker - because I am the judge and Her Majesty can do no wrong.

Sensing, correctly, the competition is rigged, The Wife mailed it in this year, proffering some frozen, ready-to-bake pastry…I told Her Majesty she probably could produce melted crayons topped with Liquid Paper and still win, tho she had brownies waiting for me when I returned from work and was immediately declared BakeOff champion.


Sunday November 23
As usual, we regard state law regarding the minimum age for playing bingo as not so much a law etched in stone, but more of, say, a guideline, and, as usual, there were kids winning turkeys left and right…I asked one what he was going to do with his and he said he was going to bury it in his yard.

Saturday November 22
Went to the big city today to pick up The Wife's daughter, Her Majesty, who is visiting for the week…Recall she is a sailor on an aircraft carrier in San Diego and is about halfway thru her enlistment...

...Boy, the cat is not pleased
