Tweet     The ol’ gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be.  That popular folk song that we sang when I was in school used to make me worry about getting older.  That poor old mare could no longer kick the whiffle tree because of age.  In many of my columns, I have [...]

Tweet     I have to blame all of this on my blacksmith friend Lyn Belcher.  Mr. Belcher had a blacksmith shop in downtown Sasser, Georgia, and I often enjoyed going there.  The ambiance was nice.  He had created a rustic look in his showroom to display his metalwork, and he had Bluegrass music piped [...]

Tweet     The late great Lewis Grizzard once wrote a book entitled, “Don’t Forget To Call Your Mama, I Wish I Could Call Mine.”  The book is a tribute to his mother and touches on her long battle with scleroderma, but the title says a lot in itself.  Too often we think about calling [...]

Tweet     Don’t you just love creative business promotions?  I remember the opening of a new strip mall when I was a boy and a helicopter dropped ping pong balls with numbers on them.  The numbers were prize codes that were awarded by the merchants in the mall.  Some businesses just hand out free [...]
