Welcome to “A Day in the Life and Other BS.” This blog is dedicated to the memory of my close friend Brian Muldrow and my cousin and lifelong friend David Morales. We lost Brian back in 2008, November 27, Thanksgiving Day. Dave passed away on the 25th of June 2015. Dave and Brian were like brothers to me, even closer than my own brother who was 10 years younger.
Brian was known by many names, aka Bri, Big Bri, Bro, Murly, Muldoon, Mugrosso, Drunken Gazelle and a few others not fit to print. Dave was known by a few names as well, Davi (pronounce Duh-vee), Duncan, Bro, Daveydildo and Zonked Out Zebra. Man I loved those guys! Brian was perhaps one of the wittiest people I have ever had the pleasure to have known. He was a well read humorists who always had an interesting, if not a bit twisted view of daily life. Dave might not have been as well read but had an incredible sense of humor and a completely twisted view on life as did I.
We were the best of friends for over 40 years. In that time we shared a lot of life and lot’s 0f laughs. We were always able to find humor in even the most mundane of circumstances. Yeah we were quite a team! We were like Manny, Moe and Jack, the Pep Boys. No, actually most days we were more like the 3 Stooges, God we had some good times, some really good times. Lord knows I miss these two clowns. I’m sorry I wasn’t there when you needed me the most Bri, and Dave I feel honored that I was able to help you the last two years of your life. I’m sorry I didn’t do more.
A Day in the Life and Other B.S.” is my attempt at keeping their memory alive. Whenever I sit down to write I will be reminded of them.

The thing the 60’s did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
As I get older, I get smaller. I see other parts of the world I didn’t see before. Other points of view. I see outside myself more. Neil Young
