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...

Cleveland Towers

This article has nothing to do with any city named Cleveland to include the one in Ohio, nor does it have anything to do with the expensive high-rise offices in that city by the same name as the title of this brief story may lead you to believe. This story is about...

The Tiger

I don’t know about you dear readers… But I can’t hardly believe anything that comes from what is loosely described as the “news” today Sure, we have twenty-four-hour news coverage on thirty damn channels. But not a damn one of them says anything that makes any sense....

I Don’t Get it….

When did this country get so damn angry and serious about everything?  I seem to have missed the memo on this one.  It’s as if most people have forgotten how to laugh, and laugh at themselves and worse yet, not take everything as an afront to their gender, equality,...

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."

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.
