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.

Kinda what it's like to be a Preacher's Kid

Split the difference between what Kearse says here and what Marshall Frady said in my comment recommend and you get close to the situation.

Kremer was almost a Rhodes Scholar.

His cousin In laws set the academic standards in Gaffney where I finished High School. It all makes sense in some way.

Compare this remembrance to Ga Mtns and Beyond thoughts on Belonging; and John Fariss memories of growing up near Talladega, Alabama and you got three good testimonies coinciding in the last ten days.

Fariss is linked in Thornton Blog announcement at if you want to do the detective work on your own.

And while there check out the link to the KJV and American Lit.

May 28, 2006 is part of my Religious History. Maybe more on that later. And Maybe a book after that.

First the June issue of Baptists Today and we all go forward from there.
