Column: Mama and the clothesline

As we all know, any large project will always have glitches. I learned this during my days of sports marketing and, thus, formed one of my enduring philosophies: No matter how well you plan, there is always somebody waiting to jump in and mess it up.

Column: Annapolis

On Friday, I felt ready to write about what happened in Annapolis, Md., the day before. I needed to wait at least 24 hours, in order to know as much as I could about the senseless murder of five people working at The Capitol Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday. Friday, though, I went on Facebook and posted a draft version of this column -- admitting that parts of it could have ended up being outdated almost as soon as I wrote it -- with the intention of publishing it as my column for this Friday.

Column: Talledega Days

The sight of Exit 173 on I-20, between Anniston and Birmingham, always brings a smile to my face -- the kind of smile that is irrepressible and makes me feel good all over.

Column: Capturing and harvesting water

(A few years ago I came across an article and saved some of the information because the content is relevant and useful. Unfortuanately, I did not save the source, but I do know that it originated in the Lowcountry and wanted to provide full disclosure that even though I have edited and revised the information a good bit, it is based on the work of someone else.)

Column: The Max vs. the Don

WASHINGTON -- If I were a cartoonist..., I would often say to my friend Doug Marlette, the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist who died 11 years ago. He'd listen patiently as I described my vision for his work, whereupon, he'd occasionally sometimes say, "Not bad."

Column: A few more observations

There's an old saying about newspaper columnists being those guys who come down out of the hills after the battle is over and shoot the wounded.

Column: Men and machines

It's been a few years since I shared the story of Tink and the riding mower but I'll remind you what happened so I can segue into another story of a man and a riding mower.

Column: Diva runs the store

Most of us who own a dog, know how much joy our beloved canines can bring to our lives every day. Now imagine if you could bring your dog to work with you and be surrounded by beautiful green plants, flowers, trees, and friends that come to shop and visit during the day. Sound like a dream?

Column: The old courthouse

A road trip recently swung me down the back roads of Georgia and took me through a little town called Homer. I wouldn't have thought much about it until I saw that wonderful old brick courthouse shaded by trees under which, probably, once rested a Confederate soldier or two.

Column: He never wrote the book

Thank heavens Lyman C. Draper stayed away from Camden when he visited South Carolina in 1871! He got close, though, as close as Stateburg. I shudder to think what might have happened if he had come here. Let me tell you about this guy!

Column: Life without fathers

There's something about being a writer that makes people confide in you. Why tell a writer, who uses life as raw material, your deepest secrets? But tell me they do, and sometimes their secrets break my heart.
