Paternal Grandfather at Oswego Kansas

The Proprietor's Paternal Grandfather at Oswego Kansas

 MISSION STATEMENT: The never-ending pursuit of the perfection of mediocrity. ~sekanblogger  

I Intend that I am refraining from buying into any media hype surrounding mass events, and that I am only envisioning positive outcomes for the Earth and her people.  

THE PROPRIETORResides in Southeast Kansas and is a married father of two and grandfather of two. A pedigreed ancestor of Ozark Hillbillies and Oklahoma Sooners, born in 1960. Mediocre in most every way, he always tends to countenance the hackneyed.  

THIS ESTABLISMENT’s only intention is entertainment of the humble masses. These entertainmants will consist of mostly AMERICANA suitable for the precocious or infirm.  

THE PROPRIETOR holds no degrees, no offices of high regard, and claims no special faculty of perspicacity or arcane knowledge. As such, the topics and enjoyments offered may not be of an engaging nature to the more scholarly viewer.  

Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them. ~Joseph Heller

  1. Hi Sekan, yay it’s about time you showed us your Kansas Media-ocrity. I can’t wait for you to reveal some of your photo collection. I am loving it already!

  2. Like the new digs sir. A very strong start!!

  3. It is nice to meet you. I am a certifiable descendant of Ozark Hillbillies. We may well be related. Aren’t we all?

    I heart your blog and thank you for visiting mine as well! Keep up the mediocre work! Cheers!

  5. Mediocrity is an art form.

  6. I really like the header image.

    Could I have mediocrity by diffusion instead? Osmosis leaves one kind of wet…all that water. ^J^

    Love the old pictures of our family. My great great grandmother being last named Branson? Is gpa’s stories right about our ancestors being the founders of Branson, Mo?

    This is the first time I’ve take time to look around your site: I’m green with envy. I’d put pictures of my folks on my about page, but not many computer screens are wide enough!

    Kanasas, got alll excited when I got email announcing a new post “A Family Man” – did you take it right down? I know you’re working too hard these days, hope all is well but dammit, more posts!

    • I did take it down. My own computer is screwed up and none of my own videos is displaying on it. I see they display fine from here.
      My new job is nothing but computer/internet and I haven’t had much time or interest in blogging lately….sorry!
