About me

Introduction 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.
Interests I know there is a space here for books; but want to emphasize three in particular that are all consuming at the moment. ron Rash's One Foot in Eden is on the verge of having a 2nd life and I am very excited about that. His World Made Straight is a great story. Google up more infor about him. David Jasper, whose acquaintance I made at this year's Furman Pastor's School; his Sacred Desert is an eye opening text I recommend to all. I used to play tennis before a pinched nerve. Federer is an alltime great, though there will likely never be a more entertaining personality than McEnroe
