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.

How does the Most Intellectual of GHS Class of 71 Change a Flat Tire?

       First he calls every friend he ever thought he had  in NE Bama to see if they will change it for him. Since he has less friends than he used to after he got voted out of the local Babdist church, he lets flat sit in front yard for three weeks while he goes to SC for Christmas holidays
   If Flat hasn't fixed itself while Steevie is out of town. Steevie takes Monday off on return cause its rainin, catches a ride to town to get a hamburger. Tuesday is a rest day and on Wednesday he rides his bike to town, but the Mexican cannot understand him so he rides to Railroad park. A Republican passes and says Steevie should try some WD 40 overnight. Maybe that was Tuesday. On Wednesday  Steevie catches another ride to town to see Duke and Villanova basketball on TV.

  On Thursday Stevie checks the wd 40 as the Republican suggested and sure enough it works. Steevie Jacks up Car and takes tire up for friend to retrieve and take to Ft payne where a woman has left some at kind price.

   Steevie doesn't have a spare so four days of 2017 are spent hustling.

     Friend brings back tire late, I mean real late Thursday night and places on bolts for Stevie to tighten early Friday morn and let Jack down.

   On Friday before the winter snow storm Steevie Goes to the Public library near the Cracker Barrel for Friday Cod.

   And that is how we roll, how the elite changes flat tires in Bama, in Donald Trump's America.

    God Bless the United States of America.

   Oh yeah, yes I did see 30 minutes of Netflix piece Barry and I'm proud of it.

   Happy New Year, ever damn one of yall.

  Go Tigers, Bama needs a little humility.
