The Circle of Life

This isn’t a sad tale, just so you know. It’s really more a story of the collective “food chain” than it is about the circle of life. Maybe they are both the same, I don’t know. But regardless, I have a story here for you, as embarrassing as it may be, that...

See More Pig

This story isn’t an advertisement for my favorite local BBQ joint nor is it a description of my least favorite college football team’s cheerleaders, although it would be quite appropriate. No, to be more accurate, it’s all about Seymore and the Pig. Maybe that’s not...

Southern Speak

There are many beautiful things about “My South” and one of those is our language. I know that the landscape of the South is changing and not always for the good. But I hope and pray we never lose the beauty of our words, our expressions. It belongs to us, it’s who we...

Waiting in the Waiting Room

I like to think of myself as a patient person. I really do. I don’t get upset about waiting in line, waiting in a restaurant or waiting on a woman. Like I said, I am patient. But I will tell you when I am not patient, is when I am a patient in a doctor’s examination...

Now Available!

You may come to the same conclusion another reader came to when I was in the early process of simply sending my stories out to gauge the interest of a potential book. She said, "You have led a charmed life."

My first reaction was, "Are you nuts?" The fact is, although I grew up differently than almost all of you, I haven't had a charmed life, believe me. That sounds like in some way I have been "lucky" that I haven't experienced hardships, pain, or defeat. Nothing could be further from the truth. But I will tell you what is true, I have had a blessed life. Through it all, the Lord has kept me above my trials and tribulations, even when I didn't believe He was there. Through disappointment, death, disease, He was there.
