News of deaths is good Southern gossip

Yes, I know that I am, occasionally, prone to embellishment. But trust me when I say this is the law and the gospel: I have a longtime friend who only calls me when someone dies. Most times, I know the person, but sometimes I don't have a clue the person ever existed.

On ham, grits and cell phones

MOULTRIE - We're all sitting there at the breakfast club, and someone begins talking about his new cell phone. It can do a lot of stuff, but it can't pour coffee nor can it scramble my sausage and eggs into my grits. So I'm left with some comfort zone. What I mean is, I don't think my life is totally about advanced technology and gizmos. There are still books to be read, there are still sticks to be whittled and there are still songs to be sung in the shower.

Thoughts of uncertainty

I was driving to the office the other day when out of the corner of my eye I saw a squirrel come out of the grass and dart right in front of my car. There was no time to brake and sad to say, the only nuts that that squirrel is eating is in squirrel heaven if there is such a place.
