My Photo

Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

Phto Opp with Son of Nixon's Barber

And the Great Granddaugther of David Brinkley's first cousin; Brinkley of the Mid 20th Century NBC icon David Brinkley, Chet Huntley's other half. I understand there is documentation, papers that connects Little Lilly to the Wallace County North Carolina Brinkley's. For sure the intelligence is there, in the genetic code; my assessment with just one course of developmental psychology and various readings to my name.
Bad news the picture isn't ready yet; but I have access and that was the deal when it was taken.
Good moment in an otherwise overwhelming ten days; trials and tribulations about which I am not quite ready to discuss. But today, March 22, I have a pulse and from what I hear, that is always a good sign.
I caught Elizabeth Edwards News conference at 12:20 today. Brave woman, inspirational. I like the Edwards, and Obama got me real enthusiastic with his announcement in Springfield.
Unlike most of you I have taken his measure with a fairly careful reading of his cover story in the current New Republic. But right now I am leaning Biden/Richardson ticket, hoping they can bring to their campaign the best of Edwards and Obama.
OBama is like listening to a politcal symphony. Chords are there, strong evolution of the lyrical line; but the application of the music, I'm not sure; the administration of the thing.
Whatever happens to me this Spring, I want you to know that I told you Pearl, in the novel The March, by Doctorow had a good spring in the cotton fields in Georgia in the 1850's. I want you to read her testimony on page 200 or thereabouts.
Come back in ten days or so for the photo.
