After suffering a massive stroke earlier this year Sean Demery has died. My buddy Steve Craig said it best –
Words cannot adequately express the love & gratitude I have for Sean Demery. For 40 years, he’s been my best friend, best man, mentor, career counselor, confidant and so much more. He taught me what unconditional friendship really is.
Despite the horrific trek from my house to the office this morning, 3.5 minutes of sheer terror, I made it. I was hit by many drops of hurricane juice and almost immediately upon leaving my car was smacked ever so gently by Irma’s ill-intentioned breath. Or, as people outside this delicate city would say, “it rained slightly and sometimes the wind would blow a little.” Not that I’m a hurricane denier or anything, but so far this has been a bit of a let down.
Anyway, all kidding aside, I pray that everyone is safe and that our good fortune continues!! ∞
A baby’s laughter is one of the most beautiful sounds you will ever hear. Unless it’s 3AM, and you’re home alone, and you don’t have a baby! ∞
To Whom it may concern,
I will pray for whomever and whatever I feel like. If I want to pray for the crack in the sidewalk then I will get on my knees and pray for that crack to be gone in the name of Jesus. If I want to pray for the fallen in Paris then I will do so. No one owns my emotions but me..and sometimes I am unable to fully understand what makes me feel the way I do. The same goes for hashtags. I will hashtag #meatballs and I will hashtag #PrayForParis and it’s really none of your business. #GetYoFaceOutMyPrayersandHashtags∞
*** DON”T MISS IT ***
I will be joining The Last Waltz Ensemble TONIGHT for two songs celebrating the works of Bob Dylan (Simple Twist of Fate) and Levon Helm (Ophelia). Don’t miss it. Get your tickets now!!! — at Smith’s Olde Bar. ∞
Never try to have a staring contest with a newborn. It is one of the weirdest things you’ll ever do. By the time it’s over you will question your very existence….and that baby will own a piece of your soul. ∞
Every year I say that I won’t get involved; I don’t have a dog in this fight thanks to the inept programs of UGA and GA Tech. Then Georgia State sucked me in with their big win and here I am suffering from full blown Final Four Fever. Go Kentucky! I want Goliath to win this one. ∞
Ok, so I think it’s time we all got something straight. I don’t want to “smell it”. Not your watch band. Not your dinner. Not your dog. Not your hands….for the love of god NOT YOUR HANDS. Not your leather jacket. Not your second hand smoke. Not your puppies breath. Not your coffee breath. Not your bad breath….breath shouldn’t smell. Not your car exhaust. Not your underarms. Not your curry based food. Not your old trash. Not your grandmas old chair. I DON’T WANT TO SMELL IT. A coworker asked me to smell their watchband this morning and before I could react shoved it in my face. I almost threw up. In what world is that remotely acceptable? So, what have we learned this morning? I DON’T WANT TO SMELL IT!!! ∞
Alan Jackson sings “He Stopped Loving Her Today” at George Jones funeral. He didn’t give a speech. He didn’t ask for attention. He walked on stage and did George Jones proud. This is how you do it.
I haven’t listened to this song in many years. I’ve heard it, but haven’t really listened to it and taken the time to really let it sink in. When Alan Jackson takes his hat off and sings the last line…it broke my heart. What a song, what a performer and what a moment. ∞
I’m getting off the elevator as a young punk looking kid is getting on and we bump into each other. I smile, he smiles, and then as I’m walking away he calls me a “butt monkey”. So I jumped back in the elevator with him and rode all the way up to the eighth floor. He seemed very uncomfortable. ∞
Researchers say they’ve found two pits to the east and west of Stonehenge that may have played a role in an ancient midsummer ceremony. The discovery suggests that the 5,000-year-old circle of stones we see today may represent just a few of the pieces in a larger geographical, astronomical and cultural puzzle.
101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan (Wendy) are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don’t die throughout the movie. ∞
