Last week my lovely wife, Lisa, and I enjoyed a “Throwback Sunday.”
I have often referred to California and Hollywood in particular as Granola Land. You know, because it is home to so many fruits and nuts. I have visited Hollywood and Vine on a few occasions and seen a lot of very strange things that have strengthened my opinion.
All my life I have read about Jesus being led into the wilderness after his baptism, where he fasted for 40 days. I was always amazed by that. Forty days is a long time, y’all.
It was a wise man, indeed, who said, “One should never watch laws or sausage being made.” I assure you, you won’t care for either if you do.
Things have really changed in education since I first entered a classroom in 1958. To my parents, being in school was the most important task I would have for the next 12 years — or 16 years — or 55 years. Being in school was my job and if Tommie and Homer Huckaby passed anything along to their second child it was their work ethic.
The Winter Olympics have come a long way since Squaw Valley, y’all.
I have only known you for about 22 months now, but in that short time I have come to love you. I know that’s a little weird, but it is a solid gold fact. I will never forget the first time I met you. I came to you in tears, actually. I was low on hope and full of anxiety and believed that I was living out the last months of my life. Statistics and all. You know how it is.
In the midst of all the mania surrounding all the hoopla over the historic and catastrophic ice storm of the past week, you might have overlooked the passing of a true American icon. Shirley Temple — America’s Sweetheart — passed away at the age of 85. A little piece of all of us is gone.
If you aren’t from around here, Guy Sharpe was an Atlanta “weatherman” back in the day. He was not a meteorologist, in any way, shape or form. He was just a TV weatherman, back when they stood in front of a national map covered with markings for various fronts and low-pressure systems.
