Showing the most recent 1000.06/01/2023: Since I become a quinquagenarian this month, I thought I’d stroll down memory lane and post a random picture taken over the years. Everyone needs a laugh, right?Day 1: Horizontal stripes and coloring eggs. My fashion sense and artistic talent both in display
05/29/2023: Two in the pink… um, wait…
05/21/2023: “Daddddd… what’s it doing to me?”

05/06/2023: One year
05/04/2023: Happy birthday to my wonderful Husbear. Here’s hoping this year is better than all the plethora of years that came before. I love you.
05/02/2023: Napping in the flower beds. Why else would it be called a bed??
04/02/2023: The Husbear: “I love this song.”Me: Me: “Of course you do…”
03/26/2023: Today, I had the honor and privilege of marrying off our son to his fiancée.Yes, I’m an ordained minister. Reverend Rubright was in the chapel. Which surprisingly didn’t explode when we walked in. Congratulations to you both, Matt and Jeffie. We love you!
03/19/2023: Pandora is napping with her eyes kinda open…
03/10/2023: This is what my brain sees when Meowingtonne’s check engine light is illuminated… #babelfish
03/09/2023: Meowingtonne got ducked today. Guess the rain washed enough of the mud off for them to not be scared to get close #duckduckjeep
03/02/2023: 7 8 9 10 11 tweh-eh-eh-eh-elve!
01/25/2023: On through the night… #arwx
01/23/2023: Boots and pants and boots and pants and…
01/18/2023: So… it seems it’s going to be this kind of morning.
12/18/2022: Bath time…
11/23/2022: Happy 5th birthday to my little girl, Pandora. You found the human who needed you even though I didn’t know it, stole my heart, and changed everything. #pibble #pibblelove
11/16/2022: There’s something about this that makes me laugh…
11/13/2022: I think she’s judging me…
10/22/2022: Someone knows she got in trouble, and she won’t look at me…
09/20/2022: Happy 13th birthday to this little thing, the feline lady of the house, milli.
09/13/2022: When you get stabbied, and they give you a happy bandage…
09/10/2022: Nobody from Nowhere

09/09/2022: Hula Girl at Heart
09/08/2022: The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful
09/08/2022: Why Don’t We Get Drunk? Also, there’s a joke about portholes and sea-men here, but… I’m classy.
09/08/2022: The Night I Painted the Sky
09/07/2022: I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever
09/07/2022: The Old Man and the Sea…
09/07/2022: What If the Hokey Pokey Is All It Really Is About?
09/07/2022: Eine kleine Nachtmusik…
06/21/2022: And sometimes, when you’re stopped in construction traffic, things just happen to be pretty…
06/05/2022: She doesn’t fit in my lap anymore, but that doesn’t stop her from trying. Still not sure how she can curl her 80# self up like that.
05/31/2022: Pandora went for a little ride in Meowingtonne this morning. Jeep fur, don’t cur!
05/31/2022: Decoration Day.
05/29/2022: Can we talk about how much I loathe wisteria…? Great for shade, but the weekly “haircuts” are worse than manscaping hyperly growing hair on 60-year-old Italian. Or so I hear.
05/25/2022: 10 minutes to change the ABS sensor they said. I know what the BS stands for now…. Apparently when it’s corroded over–and your fingers didn’t make the cut for cirque du Soleil–things take a whole lot longer. Like, an hour. Me and Meowingtonne had words this morning.
05/23/2022: Surprise eye dilation at eye doctor followed by a different doctor appointment immediately elsewhere results in looking totally baked for said doctor appointment. Do I even try to explain?
05/22/2022: Hmm… succulents must be my spirit plant. 🤣
05/20/2022: Someone’s telling me I’m doing it wrong…
05/07/2022: Alien vagina, or the aftermath of leaving the gummies in your backpack in your Jeep on a warm day? I guess with either answer the sticky result is about the same…
05/04/2022: Happy somethingy somethingth trip around the sun to my sometimes goofball of a Husbear.Happy birthday. I love you.
04/30/2022: Caulk. Do you pronounce it “call-k” or “cah-k”? I’m in the latter camp. I’m 12…
04/26/2022: Happy birthday, @Meowingtonne! You’ve changed a wee bit since I pulled you off the dealership lot 6 years ago today. You’ve treated us well, even with all the abuse I’ve given you over the almost 112K miles, and so many walkabouts: from Glacier NP to Pensacola Beach to Ouray, CO (so many passes) and halfway up the Atlantic coast and so many backroads in between. Thank you for taking care of us. #jeepwrangler #jeeplife
04/25/2022: A) it tastes like purple (you know exactly what I mean!), B) 200mg of caffeine at 10pm might have been a bad idea…
04/24/2022: I really always do enjoy a good light show. I survived. #edibleshelped #garthinfayetteville
04/23/2022: The things we do for our spousal unit. I soooooo didn’t eat enough edibles for this. #garthbrooksstadiumtour
04/22/2022: Not a prime number… but Meowingtonne wears it well #jeepwrangler
04/13/2022: I disappeared “secretly” to Florida this past week. Got the opportunity to watch my buddy Kevin compete in the Pan IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship tournament in Orlando (and new buddy Darla too). Also to make a surprise visit to my parental units. And to have a mental getaway of sorts. We cooked and ate more seafood than I ever have, and no complaints were had. Some excellent Cuban food was found. Spent a day at the beach. And a night in NOLA for dinner on the way home for some oysters and Cajun seafood, and beignets for breakfast. This may have been a food tour as well. During the length of the tournament, I observed a lot about something I didn’t know anything about or had ever paid attention to before, and asked questions that were probably a little repetitive to them both, but they endured. Considering the way my path changed a few years ago, and everything I’ve dealt with since, this might be what I need to pursue for myself.
03/27/2022: Methinks Pandora is playing innocent about something… 🤔
03/27/2022: When you’ve scrounged for a really late dinner and might have accidentally put enough seasoning on it to make a Cajun flush…
03/19/2022: Pandora didn’t mind head skritches while I was in the shower.And yes. The phone is in the shower. Ya know, because y’all know me, in case I slip and fall and have to call 911 or something… *cough*
03/19/2022: My eyebrows are apparently of British descent. My want of carrying around two bushy caterpillars on my forehead however… hence the brush hogging. 🤣🤣🤣
03/03/2022: Umm… wiener fun? Count me in!
02/18/2022: This pizza should clean out my sinuses, right? Chicken, bacon, jalapeños, cowhorn peppers, and cayenne peppers with just a little oregano for flavor. On a ranch sauce base. There’s probably a reason no one ever asks me to make them a pizza….
02/11/2022: This is not the side quest I was looking for… #LevellingUpSucks
01/26/2022: This wee lass passed out on me making sure I was feeling okay. And now I can’t feel that hand. Or the half of the body it’s attached too.
01/19/2022: Meowingtonne needs more mud. Granted, he’s alllllllways dirty…
01/13/2022: Anyone else have—or have had—one of these style toilets? And have you had after a period of time where it just starts to not flush enough to empty the bowl? With either button.And I’m not just talking about the amount of pee or poo someone’s leaving either… 🙄
01/12/2022: Sky betta…
01/12/2022: When you dish out what’s remaining in your bag-o-salad and realize you didn’t shake it the several other times you ate from it… *sigh*
01/09/2022: Well… I wonder how many people will fall for that form of text spam 😬
01/06/2022: This is NOT what I expected to wake up to this morning… #arwx #whatthehell #pearidge #pearidgearkansas
01/06/2022: I really need to get up to use the bathroom… but I’m fairly certain she’s going to be mad if I do.
01/04/2022: Life doesn’t always need to be filtered…
01/03/2022: How is that even comfortable, Pandora? #pibble
12/25/2021: Happy Yule and merry Christmas to all of y’all out there. I hope everyone enjoys whatever traditions you may have for this day of the year.I, for one, am glad it’s almost over…“Do you know why people get together at Christmas? Because every time they do, it might be the last time. Every Christmas is last Christmas.” – Doctor Who 2014 Christmas Special – Last Christmas
12/21/2021: The testimony isn’t wrong. I mean… we all think it, right? (Don’t send me pictures. This was just a “do other people think this besides me?” I mean, unless you’re curious )
12/07/2021: Pandora is not amused by the Husbear’s shenanigans. #pibble
12/06/2021: Resisting the urge to drive past a fresh mud puddle without driving into it is… challenging. I—once again—failed the challenge.I *may* have even backed up a few times, hit it again, turned around, and repeated from the other direction as well. Maniacally giggling the entire time. Because apparently I turn into a five year old stomping puddles after it rains. (Those of you who’ve had the… torment… of experiencing this with me know.)My galoshes are just bigger now…. @meowingtonne
12/05/2021: Cheffy pan-flippy.Epic fail it might have been.Poor eggy. Sad face.
11/24/2021: Happy 4th trip around the sun to my little girl, Pandora. My comfort. My protector. And sometimes my comedic relief, you goofy thing. I was never a dog person until I held you in my lap when I brought you home that night. And now I can’t imagine you not being by my side.
11/15/2021: When the morning sun shines just right into the bathroom and shower…And yes, I take my phone into the shower. Well, it sits on the separator ledge. For chance photographable moments like these. Hush you dirty minds.
11/12/2021: Looks like the wood burning stove pipe needs a colonoscopy too…
11/08/2021: Morning view from the water closet. Filter provided by dirty exterior window
10/30/2021: This is pretty much on repeat in my head. Humans have been pissing me off since pretty much noon today. It’s going to be a long day…. #thestupiditburns #youwouldntlikemewhenimangry #mymedsarentstrongenoughforthismess
10/29/2021: Really, Meowingtonne? You’re going to do this to me now? In the dark. And cold. And rain? *sigh* ..#Jeep #jeepwrangler #wranglerunlimited #jkur #arkansasjeep @Meowingtonne
10/22/2021: Umm… is there any particular reason a 43-year-old song needs to be in Dolby Atmos??
10/12/2021: I seriously have no idea which end of the buffalo this product came out of when it was produced. However, I can tell you EXACTLY which end the marketing people need their heads shoved in…
10/12/2021: On National Coming Out Day, the only advice I can offer is this: the only person you need to be out to is yourself. Being honest with yourself can be hard work. It can be scary. But in the end it can–and will–save you. It took me years and years to come out to myself, and even longer to come out to anyone else. Even after I started figuring things out, there were many times I backpedaled because of my religious upbringing and self-loathing. Eventually I learned to see that for what it was, and love that part of what makes me, well, me. We all take different paths. Love yourself, and just be the you that you need to be. #ComingOutDay #ComingOutDay2021
10/03/2021: And so it begins…. I guess these are my 12 apostles? Because they’re going to be going all biblical on my a$$ in a few hours. I told you this was going to be fun. Stay tuned!
10/03/2021: This is the last meal and testament of one Erik Rubright of the town of Pea Ridge, Arkansas. Being of sound mind, I direct your view to the last solid substances that shall traverse the length of my gastrointestinal tract before the great colonic tidal wave event which begins tomorrow eve: bean burritos with roasted tomatillo and pepper salsa. Because salsa is awesome.But considering how little I typically eat anyway, two-thirds of this will lay in it’s metallic coffin in the refrigerator until Monday or so anyway. Unlike the one-third that will end up… well, down, the devil’s back roads.
10/02/2021: Thank you, Mema! They’re awesome! And of course I love them! Love you too! #Jeep
09/28/2021: Tell me about it…
09/26/2021: When the spousal unit—who has Cajun blood in him somewhere—doesn’t like peeling shrimp, so you change your dinner idea and do it for him. I’m thinking the Cajun is reallllllly diluted 🤔
09/25/2021: “Daaaad, are you surrrrrrre you’re going to eat that?”
09/24/2021: When you go to sprinkle the Cajun seasoning on the chicken… and the lid cracked open. 🤦🏻♂️
09/24/2021: Happy birthday to one of the best humans I know. He’ll literally give you the shirt off his back. And more importantly, will protect those who cannot protect themselves. Happiest of birthdays, Patrick, my bestest buddy.
09/16/2021: So, yeah, umm… does anyone else’s furbaby do this with their paws? She’ll actually do that reverse fold tuck with both paws a lot of the time. It kind of freaks me out.
09/10/2021: “We all change, when you think about it, we're all different people; all through our lives, and that's okay, that's good, you've gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be….”Goodbye Pensacola Beach. Thank you for simultaneously the mental relaxation and the mental processing. Until next time….
09/09/2021: Have you met my friend Pustulio? He is visiting from… another place.
09/08/2021: Meet Handles. He’s bad about reminding me of things.
09/08/2021: “I'm the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness…”Wednesday raininess. A different view of beach relaxation.
09/08/2021: Honey Daze…. #honeydaze
09/08/2021: “…This dream must end, this world must know. We all depend on the beast below.” #nofilter
09/07/2021: It’s not day drinking if you don’t start when you wake up… on the beach… contemplating the complexities of exactly how sand can get that far up one’s nether regions just sitting here… and why Jimmy Buffett has never written a song about that.
09/06/2021: And… here.
09/05/2021: My life could use this flag. I should probably start carrying a real one with me…. #victor #requireassistance
09/03/2021: Dual exhaust. #abandoned #abandonedplaces
08/27/2021: Dear aurally annoying cicadas,I noticed as of this morning you finally shut the hell up. Now I can hear the crickets and frogs, as opposed to what I can only imagine would be the sound of white noise in the waiting room of some 1-Star Howard Johnson in the Middle of Nowhere. Thank you for dying.Signed, Probably everyone.
08/23/2021: Pandora sat like this through almost an entire episode of Doctor Who. She was either mesmerized, or her body had just locked up. I’m going with she’s a Whovian. #pibble
08/18/2021: Are you an “always an even number on the dial” person, an “always an odd number” person, or a “there are numbers? Just crank it up until my teeth rattle” person?
08/16/2021: This is what happens when I didn’t check the booze cabinet before I went to the grocery store….
08/11/2021: What could *possibly* go wrong with this little food science experiment… er…recipe 😬 #callhazmat
08/08/2021: Well… it’s not quite the most “grandma” thing I’ve ever done. But it obscures what’s under the car park from the road down below. And once some sort of flora vines it’s way up, it won’t be as nekkid and translucent as me with no clothing on… and if I shaved everything 🤣🤣🤣
07/31/2021: Jumping back to 1970, with the Third Doctor. Feels like a good way to spend a Friday night. #doctorwho
07/24/2021: The first plate I received when I moved to Arkansas in 1991. Some say it was an Omen (see what I did there?). I say they expected my arrival….“Woe to you, oh earth and sea…”
07/21/2021: This is how this conversation goes, pretty much all day long…“Daddy, I wanna go back inside now.”“Pandora, it’s only been like 10 minutes since you wanted to come outside. ““I know, but I’ll go stand and stare at the door in 20 more minutes and then we can come outside again for another 10. You know you will because I’ll keep making this face at you until you acquiesce. And because you totally love me.”🤦🏻♂️#pibble #pibblesofinstagram #pibblelove
07/19/2021: The parental units dropped in from central Florida for a visit. A great visit, actually. It’s been a few years since we’ve seen each other, and we’re all leveling up in life. While we don’t agree on a lot of things (okay, literally opposite ends of the spectrum), I do love them regardless of our differences (shh… don’t tell anyone I have a heart). Hopefully we can enjoy however many revolutions we have left around this sun together. I still might need a drink or three of whiskey… and a few edibles… after this visit
07/19/2021: When your parental units show up for a visit with a trunk you haven’t seen in 30+ years that’s technically now a time capsule and it pretty much contains your entire history of Scouting in it… #boyscouts
07/18/2021: Pandora decided I needed supervision while I was working on Meowingtonne’s suspension today…..#Jeep #jeepwrangler #wranglerunlimited #jkur #ljeepbtq #gayjeep #jeepsofinstagram #arkansasjeep #arkansasjeeps @Meowingtonne #pibblesofinstagram
07/13/2021: After 10 days and 3,530 miles in Meowingtonne, this is probably the best thing to happen in the first 30 minutes of getting home. I’m pretty sure we both missed each other. #walkabout
07/12/2021: Another clip of that little bear cub on that back road. #walkabout
07/12/2021: So… this happened yesterday. I’ll post other pictures, but figured I’d start with this video. #walkabout
07/11/2021: I’m probably a dork, but I find the races and flumes at the mill more interesting for some reason. Maybe it’s the engineering aspect of it that catches my attention? Going back to my days of Erector sets and stuff like that? #walkabout
07/11/2021: Someone done drank all the moonshine. Well, they let the still go all to hell by the looks of it. Speaking of, now I’m thirsty… #walkabout
07/11/2021: Mabry Mill. Built in 1910, restored in 1945. Apparently the most photographed feature on the Blue Ridge Parkway. #walkabout
07/11/2021: Trail’s Cabin, built in the 1890s. On the Blue Ridge Parkway. #walkabout
07/10/2021: These are not the mountains we’re accustomed to overlooking on our walkabouts, but they’re just as beautiful. And probably a little more forgiving on Meowingtonne’s powertrain… at least for the moment.
07/10/2021: It really does go nowhere these days, but…The narrow-gauge railroad was once known as the Irish Creek Railway, built by the South River Lumber Company to access trees that were previously untouched until the 1900s. (Found at Milepost 34.4 on the Blue Ridge Parkway) #walkabout
07/10/2021: Apparently 3 sets of bars on the jail cell windows will be enough?
06/12/2021: Helping spread a little HAPPY in northwest Arkansas. Thank you, Porkchop!
06/03/2021: There are no Janet nails, in case you wondered. Or bent/bi/gay Brad nails. Well, pre-bent. I managed to bend a few in this project…. 🤦🏻♂️.Say, do any of you guys know how to Madison?
05/31/2021: Nothing sinister about this property. Nope. Nothing at all. I’ve seen how these movies end.
05/30/2021: Do you think warthog bacon tastes like regular ol’ domesticated pig bacon? #EatPumbaa
05/29/2021: I think there may be more than one dirty joke here… 🤔
05/29/2021: Oof. 97979. I guess that’s not too bad for 5 years… 🤷🏻♂️ ..#Jeep #jeepwrangler #wranglerunlimited #jkur #ljeepbtq #gayjeep #jeepsofinstagram #arkansasjeep #arkansasjeeps @Meowingtonne
05/28/2021: Dang it! Last night’s torrential precipitation cleaned off the protective coating on Meowingtonne. Now I’m going to have to find some mud holes…#Jeep #jeepwrangler #wranglerunlimited #jkur #ljeepbtq #jeepsofinstagram #arkansasjeep #arkansasjeeps @Meowingtonne
05/17/2021: 🤔 … well, I suspect I haven’t been living my best life as of yet…
05/17/2021: The law of conservation of mass applies here, right? If so, I’d really like to apologize to the poor individual that found those 25-ish pounds I managed to lose this last year.
05/14/2021: If I doesn’t hurt and I don’t know how I got it, it didn’t happen, right? #itmighthurtlater #howdoikeepdoingthesethings
05/12/2021: Even though we’re about to hit 24 years together, happy 7th legally married anniversary to my Husbear! This picture seems appropriate and makes me laugh, because we don’t always know where we are, but we know where we’re going. I love you.
05/09/2021: I might be getting a kick out of watching the Husbear catching the guinea to move them to their new pen…
05/07/2021: Umm… dear cooling mattress cover: a) this phrase changes dramatically depending on if it ends with a question mark or a period; and b) you’re going to find out. 🤣🤣🤣
05/04/2021: Happy birthday to my Husbear! Just think how far you’ve leveled up, and all the experience you’ve earned along the way. I look forward to spending this birthday, and all the future trips around the sun together with you as well. I love you. Let’s just avoid a rerun on the tractor rolling, m’kay? P.S., Our house isn’t insured if it catches on fire for the amount of candles we’d need on a cake. I checked the policy. P.P.S., That exclusion may also be a result of the Roman candle incident that one year… 🤔. In my defense, it did say “candles” on the package.
04/25/2021: For his 5th birthday, Meowingtonne finalllllly got a proper hoist for his hard top! I think he was tired of us taking it off and on by hand each season. Okay, we were tired of it. Moving that thing is as awkward as a teenager getting caught doing you know what by a parental unit. From what I’ve heard. Here’s hoping it doesn’t break and drop the top to the ground….
03/24/2021: Because… I love y’all! (Still one of my favorite songs…)
03/20/2021: Happy *cough* 50th birthday to this guy and his huge… personality! Dwayne, I really really really hope this next revolution around the sun treats you so much better than the previous did. I love you, buddy! @big_dfh
03/14/2021: I ordered a two piece and a biscuit. Instead we got a 10 piece guinea nuggets.
03/07/2021: Cooking up some crispy pork belly… with peanut soy sauce, coconut rice, and some bok choy. *nom*
03/04/2021: A certain 85# pupper just has to lay across my lap while we wait for the vet to come out to give her her follow-up exam. Leg circulation is overrated anyway! #pibble #pibblelove #pibblelife
02/26/2021: Poor Pandora has an ear infection and isn’t taking it well. And neither am I. The medicine needs to start doing it’s thing. #pibble #pibblelove #pibblelife
02/19/2021: Down the road from the house. Nope, not cold at all… #arwx
02/17/2021: You know you reallllly love your hillbilly Husbear when he has just-hatched chicks in the laundry sink. Granted, we are having the coldest days on record here in the South…
02/16/2021: Pandora is overrrrrrrr these single digit temps, snow, and winter weather warnings. She’s a Southern girl. #pibble #arwx
02/14/2021: A nice little amount of snow here in Pea Ridge in the first band to come through. I could do without the 7°, feels like -10° bit though. #arwx #nofilter
02/11/2021: Habanero, jalapeño, chipotle, barbecue chicken with oregano pizza at 10pm. You have to have a heart to get heartburn, right? Not really sure that the oregano made a difference
02/10/2021: So… it kind of looks like a cake, but it’s a PB&J burger. I was trying to make something different for the Husbear instead of just his boring ol’ cheeseburger. I think this qualifies.
02/04/2021: An attempt was made…
02/04/2021: Okay, maybe it’s time to clean Meowingtonne’s floor mat. And for me to say that is reallllllly saying something…#jeeplife #jeepwrangler #jeeparkansas
02/01/2021: When you wander into the bathroom and discover the Husbear washed the dogs paws off in the shower… but didn’t hose it out. “Yet.” Maybe white grout was a poor choice… 🤦🏻♂️
01/30/2021: Oh joy! (Where’s the damn sarcasm font we were promised? *shakes fist*)
01/30/2021: 9pm seems like an excellent time to cook a jalapeño and chicken pizza…
01/25/2021: 10-to-1, a certain Husbear is going to wreck these ribeyes by putting ketchup on them 🤦🏻♂️
01/23/2021: There’s no telling, bless her heart.
01/18/2021: Someone enjoyed a little ride this afternoon… and Pandora did too.
01/05/2021: I mean, who doesn’t keep a dismembered body in their barn? Right?
01/05/2021: Pensively peering Pandora peering pensively
12/26/2020: Umm….. I have questions
12/26/2020: The aftermath. I need to be less messy when I cook. All that for 2 people. That poor Sonic cup has seen some shit
12/23/2020: Pandora is my weighted blanket… and weighted blanket… and weighted blanket…
12/13/2020: We had our first big snow in years here in northwest Arkansas. Of course it’s always the dilemma of stay inside where it’s warm or go out to take pictures…
12/13/2020: Seems like the thing to make on our first heavy snow day in… years.
12/12/2020: 12 of 12, December 2020 edition
12/09/2020: Keep Calm and Carry On
12/08/2020: For some reason I expected the box to be MUCH bigger after hearing conservatives scream about it all my life…
12/02/2020: People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect…
12/02/2020: Throwback to this summer, camping in the mountains in Colorado, pondering how much it was worth getting in the right-above-freezing river for a bath…
12/01/2020: I could use a trip to a warm beach right about now…. (throwback picture from one of my plethora of Pensacola Beach trips *sigh*)
12/01/2020: The “why do I look baked; why am I so flushed; why yes, I’m sitting in the back of my Jeep” no filter selfie.
11/25/2020: Would anyone be surprised that I want to buy these just to see what “bitter coating” tastes like?
11/24/2020: If you’ve got to wipe your arse in northwest Arkansas you’re shit out of luck… #toiletpapercrisis
11/24/2020: Well… at least they’re they same brand…
11/23/2020: Happy 3rd birthday to my no longer little “little” girl. Would have never thought I’d have become a dog person, but you’ve helped calm my my anxiety and stress levels more than I’d ever thought possible. #pibblesofinstagram
11/21/2020: I didn’t see anything in the direction they were all looking, so I’m assuming it was a ghost….
11/17/2020: I’ve never been one to be zen with Christmas. Maybe this year will be different?
11/16/2020: I know they mean well with the happy face, but all my brain sees is Mr. Yuk.
11/15/2020: As close to fish & chips as I’m allowed. Broccoli “tots” count, right?
11/11/2020: In the 18 years I’ve lived in this house, this is the first I’ve ever used the tub to soak. That’s what I get for actually using my muscles. #gettingoldersucks
11/11/2020: Easier to ask on here, since so many IGers have pups. Heart worm medicine: What do you use? Or do you not? You can DM me or just reply here. Thank you!
11/06/2020: Nap time for Pandora… #pibble #stolemyheart
11/06/2020: I don’t think the camo is working…
11/01/2020: My first… in my Jeep, that is. In the literal hundreds I’ve received as a tattoo artist over the past 15 years. It’s time for me to join a happy movement and pay it forward. #duckingjeeps #duckingjeep #duckingjeepsarkansas
10/25/2020: The things I hang on to…. Memories.
10/23/2020: Pandora vs dinosaur femur… #pibble
10/19/2020: Who needs an alarm clock when you have one of these…. #pibble
10/16/2020: The “I haven’t posted a selfie in a while” selfie…
09/27/2020: What psychopath thought using particle board as a fraking SUBFLOOR was a good idea—in the moist American South no less!?!??
09/26/2020: “People assume that time is a strict progression from cause to effect, but actually–from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint–it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.” Methinks it’s time to start back in 1963, again… #DoctorWho
09/24/2020: Guilty pleasure 🤫
09/23/2020: Happy 36th birthday to my buddy! I hope you have a great day today, and I really hope you have a wonderful trip around the sun this year.

06/17/2020: I made it to level 47! Somehow. Thank you to those that remembered… I love you.
06/16/2020: Who doesn’t like to play with themself?
06/16/2020: New shoes for Meowingtonne!
06/15/2020: Weirdest. Gloryholes. Ever.
06/15/2020: So… yeah. I’ve been working on this closet for a while. Or haven’t been… 🤦🏻♂️
06/12/2020: Four years ago today…
06/10/2020: A two bucket kind of day… And still no apocalypse.
06/08/2020: I’m making craters!
06/07/2020: That’s enough organizing for today. I’d say that counts as progress…
06/07/2020: Sunday task: Attempting to get my workshop somewhat “organized”…
06/01/2020: After the noodle incident, time to aerate where I’m standing…
06/01/2020: I’m pretty sure that bushing is bad… 🤔

05/04/2020: Happy birthday to my wonderful Husbear. I know times have been tough as of late, but I hope this day is a wonderful day for you. And just like the many we have celebrated already, I look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you. I love you.
04/30/2020: Another day, another Pandora picture
04/28/2020: Pandora is a lady…
04/28/2020: I guess I’m not allowed to use the stove any longer. My forgetfulness is getting worse, and I, well, this… 🤦🏻♂️
04/25/2020: Seems about right…
04/22/2020: Casualties. Lightning hit our house and traveled inside via the phone lines. Where it then proceeded to jump to some of the power circuits and take out the electronics. I guess the upside is that it didn’t burn the house down…
04/21/2020: When your air compressor decides to bust an important part in the middle of a project 🤦🏻♂️
04/18/2020: The “I shouldn’t be allowed to play with filters” selfie #idlehands

04/08/2020: ‘Tis the wisteria season…
04/03/2020: I think my pup is broken…
04/03/2020: French curves were all the decorating rage in the early 90s?
03/31/2020: Sleeping beauty
03/29/2020: I was apparently all forehead when I was a kid
03/27/2020: I may have gone a little ghetto today… #socialdistancing

03/23/2020: This made me laugh way too much
03/16/2020: Studio procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic
03/16/2020: Studio procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic
03/04/2020: It’s not often I choke up, especially at my studio. Today I was given the most wonderful gift from the artists at my studio. Thank you all so very very much! I enjoy every day I get to spend working with you all. Thank you each so much for everything you do.
03/01/2020: Pandora surveying her domain #pibble #pibblesofinstagram

01/19/2020: These two……
01/15/2020: Apparently Pandora felt I needed grooming
01/10/2020: I guess I should do a 2020 selfie. The beard needs to hurry up and grow back out a wee bit. Dang clipper incident. Until then, I’ll work the mustache
12/27/2019: 7-year-old me was apparently a dork…
12/26/2019: Pandora stared off motionless like this for about 10 minutes. I have no idea what she was doing or looking at. #pibble

11/24/2019: Happy 2nd birthday to my not-so-little Pandora. #pibble #pibblesofinstagram
11/21/2019: I’ll play along. I’m sure facial recognition software just loves this stuff! 2009 -> 2019. I guess this also counts as my #tbt.
11/19/2019: Feeling conductor-y, might pull a train later
11/18/2019: It must be that time of year… the plants wouldn’t lie.
11/15/2019: Well, you can’t say I don’t use my Jeep…. 🤦🏻♂️
11/15/2019: I know we’re all tired of this meme, but this made me laugh way too hard. #DoctorWho

09/29/2019: My bestest buddy out riding…
09/28/2019: I think Pandora is more accustomed to this stupid thing on my face than I am… #failingatbreathing #stupidCPAP #probablystillgoingtosuffocateinmysleep #atleastmydoglovesme

09/04/2019: I guess that’s why it’s called the Emerald Coast…
09/04/2019: Had to step out of the sun for a bit and grab some grub…
09/03/2019: Ernest Hemingway titled a short novel the same as I was going to use for this picture….
09/03/2019: The thirst is real… #imafishhead
09/03/2019: This guy….

08/31/2019: That seems… excessive
08/31/2019: Proud balcony
08/31/2019: Not named Desire
08/30/2019: Things happened. I think.
08/29/2019: I’ve weirdly enough missed your craziness, NOLA.

02/21/2019: Pandora figuring out the difference between running Windows and licking windows…..
02/21/2019: Squareducky! Thank you, Bestest buddy!
02/08/2019: Surprise loot in the mail today. Thank you, Craig!
02/08/2019: I think I need this… LOL
02/05/2019: This installation sums up my mental state the last few months. I apologize to all those I’ve hurt, disappointed, and let down. I can’t promise I won’t hurt you again, but I really am trying the best I can.
02/04/2019: I may be 45 years old, but this very, very old picture of me is how I feel on the inside most days: that geeky little introverted nerd who doesn’t know how to handle social interaction
02/02/2019: 1991. Why were my ears so stickey-outey then? And what’s with my hair?
01/29/2019: Thinking about revisiting a look from four years ago… hmm…
01/29/2019: I have apparently reached the “crazy” level of my life…
01/28/2019: That can’t be comfortable…
01/25/2019: Missing my family…
01/25/2019: Update on hospital stay…
01/22/2019: If it was only that easy…
01/20/2019: Everyone else is looking at the blood moon, and here I am staring off into Orion. And impressed my phone captures so clean a photo.
01/19/2019: I’ve been discharged from hospital and just got home. Thank you to everyone for your well-wishes and positive energy, and thank you to everyone who came to spend time with me. I love you all! Now to get some rest.
01/19/2019: And yet…
01/18/2019: Carnac the Magnificent still can’t read your thoughts…
01/17/2019: Seriously… me in hospital this week. /ugh
01/17/2019: Does this mean I finally went digital? I’ll be wearing this puppy for up to the next 24 hours.
01/17/2019: The Husbear was being a smart-ass and took this picture. I need to tan.
01/16/2019: The sucky thing about being a fall risk: having to page the nurse every time I need use the water closet.
01/15/2019: Overnight stay after being here since 10 am. I keep getting dizzy and passing out at random. Being poked and prodded and observed all night.
01/14/2019: My people. ️️️
01/12/2019: Hmm… 10 years difference. #tenyearchallenge
01/10/2019: Rest In Peace, James. Even though we never met in person, thank you for the friendship and conversations. Every time I see this card you sent me I still giggle a little. Many hugs to your family and all the other people you had an impact on.
12/25/2018: Pandora seems… comfortable
12/25/2018: Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night….
12/21/2018: That’s almost 500ml I’m short now…

12/05/2018: Happenings and such
12/04/2018: I’m home. Thank you to all who sent positive vibes my way. I’ll update more details later, but for now I just need to rest.
12/04/2018: Not how I intended to spend my day. Extreme dizziness, blood pressure bouncing all over the place, nausea, blurry vision.
12/02/2018: Truth be told, every single moment of my existence…
11/29/2018: 300 new cards! Reading these might cheer me up. I need to play this again soon with friends. #cardsagainsthumanity
11/25/2018: A great night out tonight with these guys (plus Brian, missing from the photo!) seeing Will Brand in his Garth Brooks tribute show.
11/23/2018: Happy first birthday to my not so little girl, Pandora.

06/08/2018: I almost missed this one, but today is #nationalbestfriendday. I am fortunate to have two: one is my Husbear; and then I have my bestest buddy Patrick. This man means more to me than I could ever express adequately in words. Thank you Patrick for everything you have done for me. I love you.
06/06/2018: Update on Monday’s attack. (Also, you can find me back on Facebook at Erik Rubright if you’re so inclined.)
06/05/2018: So… I’m just going to say, it still happens in 2018. Two attackers. One had me, and the other my bestest buddy. Just home from hospital now. I thank my bestest buddy for being there and doing all he could do. I hope he knows how much I love him; and am glad he was there, because this could have ended much worse. Sad thing is, he and I, as well as the attackers, all got tickets because the local PD didn’t know who did what.

01/10/2018: I’ve been discharged and am home. Just monitoring my condition. The doctors are leaning towards it having been a muscle spasm of some sorts, but nothing detectable in all the labs. I just know I’d like to never experience that again. Now to get a little actual rest. And to peel all these frakin’ things off without removing too much hair. I swear they stuck these in all the places they didn’t shave.
01/09/2018: The irony is not lost upon me…
01/09/2018: And now we wait. And get poked. And prodded.

12/24/2017: She’s comfortable, apparently.
12/24/2017: Some “humans” abandoned this little girl on our road, and she made her way to our house. Below freezing out, and no winter coat. She’s so lovable.
