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.

Native Crossvillian Barnes and Noble selection for June

Don Gregory of the Crossville, Alabama High School class of 72 is a Barnes and Noble June selection for his book Jungvolk. I have blogged about his book before and have a link. Search is not hard.
This is breaking news; just wanted to get it out there.
Most Saturday mornings he has a Stand at Trade Day in Collinsville.
Big Congratulations to Don, a Physics Proff at UAH.
PS; I do not have him on the record, but I doubt he would be part of the crowd that has banned me from the Collinsville Public Lyberry for eternity; nor would my friend Gaynor, whose son joined me in an appreciation of the quarterly, Oxford American Magazine.
The former Mayor's Wife got it right, made a nails on assessment.

I digressed.
Major congrats to Gregory. He is going to Boston and infinity and beyond with this book.
Very proud of him.

Maybe he can arrange an invitation for me to a book signing in Collinsville if the catering is routine.

Good singing at the Sacred Harp yesterday:
While I have these lyrics near at hand, wanted to share:

73t Cusseta
Tune: John Massengale, 1844

Words: Erhart Hegenwalt & J. C. Jacabi, 1524

Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)

Show pity, Lord, Oh Lord, forgive;
Let a repenting rebel live:
Are not Thy mercies large and free?
May not a sinner trust in Thee?

My crimes, though great, cannot surpass
The pow’r and glory of Thy grace;
Great God, Thy nature hath no bound;
So let Thy pard’ning love be found.

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord,
Whose hope still hov’ring ’round Thy word
Would light on some sweet promise there,
Some sure support against despair.
