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...

An Insignificant Thing

You may not know this about me. But the life of a semi-renown nearly famous Southern humorist such as myself isn’t all that glamorous. Seriously, it’s not. I live alone with “Doc” the World-Famous Black Lab who I am sure gets sick and tired of listening to me talk and...

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.
