I Once Touched Greatness

While enjoying a lazy socially distant afternoon cable-surfing, I noticed that the Donald has upgraded President Carter’s site in Plains to a National Park. After attempting a violent coup it seems that the Donald is going to start on a redemption tour for the balance of his time. He couldn’t

Tell It To The Devil

Good morning, y’all. A beautiful day here in the mountains. A little chilly at first light, a little windy, but all and all, a perfect day. I think it just made a 10 on the Whiz O Meter because one of the weather drones thinks he saw a cloud on

All My Heroes Are Dying

Aging imbues us with the uncomfortable knowledge that our time on this plane is limited. The passing of our contemporaries, our rock and roll idols, sports heroes and other personalities of note reminds us of the fact that our time is limited. A recent article has reminded me that ceasing


Good morning, y’all. A quiet morning here in the mountains with the ground still soaked from last night’s thunder bumper. The storm sounded like the Second Coming. The thunder echoed off of the mountains making it sound like the end was near. With the Corona and everything else going on,

Good morning, y’all. Well, I can hardly contain my excitement, the big day is finally here. It’s just hours until our fearless lads take the field of combat against the semi-nerds of Vanderbilt University in beautiful downtown Nashville. GO DAWGS!!!! Speaking of good dogs, it’s time to introduce a very

Hello, Hello, Hello

Is there anybody out there? Nod if you can hear me. Just a reminder from Pink Floyd that we should never become “comfortably numb”. The 2020 elections prove that by being “comfortably numb” about voting ensures that the party that can more easily incite their base will win the election.

Queen For A Day

Good morning, y’all. We have record rains this year. I think average rainfall is supposed to be about 58 inches and I’d bet it’s around 78 now. Coupled with the warm weather extending year round, it’s given life to our dormant bug population, mosquitoes in particular. I hate to get
