  1. Goooooood read. Nothing but respect. https://www.amazon.com/Terlingua-Teacher-Remarkable-One-room-Schoolhouse/dp/0974504831
  2. What a difference a year makes! Last two original sentences only part that hasn't changed...
  3. Passing the torch to you, my friend! Carry on...you're rocking it!
  4. The point is, free will, free choice applies for all, according to the One whose standard really matters. All else is imitation...or not.
  5. Oh, same, Johnny. I feel those same feelings. I think it was AUB who reminded, "It's all in fun." I have stopped short of doing Lookalikes for FamBoard members, though...in the face of all kinds of temptation. THAT would be mean. (But definitely therapeutic...)
  6. This tweet though. A conversation some---not saying anyone here---don't want to have. (I'd leave out "left", though, and stick an apostrophe in can't.)
  7. One of the things I admire most about George Washington is that he had to be talked into government office and was absolutely ret-ta-go when 1789 arrived. We have been slipping ever since...but I've always appreciated those who recognize their seasons, carpe diem, and take their curtains with grace...even amidst encore calls from the fickle masses. Even this one knows "her" season.
  8. Hey, Fifty? We ALL have whole places, and we all have broken places. Sometimes we shine it up better than others. Transparency is the first step to healing. We all need each other. There's a lot of truth to "Kumbaya"! Blessings, brother. For all of us, it feels good to be on the road to recovery. I see my dad's flaws a lot differently through the eyes of grace, now that he has passed. I try to correct some of his parenting blunders as I parent mine...knowing that I'll leave things that they need to correct in theirs, if they're blessed to have them. Knowing "I'm just passing through" makes things a lot more perspective-filled and heart-full for me. You are an overcomer...so just keep right on plowing ahead! War Eagle!
  9. You are more right than you know. Thank you for your service. This is amazing to read!
  10. Glad you are okay! Some serious flooding pics from downtown Pensacola! Prayers for recovery and peace of mind...that's a long process, I understand.
  11. Homer, I do not disagree with the need to drain the swamp...in all directions...but I have to ask...the connotation many have with "draining the swamp" has to to do with the ones who've made a lifetime of making it swampy as "legislators." Who's going to tell the people who keep voting some of them in to stop? #termlimits #pipedream
  12. Ya think? Every teacher knows the law of natural consequences....and I'll bet a lot of non-teachers do, too. "Be careful what you ask for..."
  13. Who knew?! Goober is a UNA alum! https://roarlions.com/honors/hall-of-fame/george-goober-lindsey/68 "George Lindsey was two-year letterman on Lion football teams in 1950 and 1951 and played quarterback. Born in Fairfield, Ala., he majored in biological science and physical education and graduated in 1952. He then went on to an illustrious career in television and film. His most famous role was that of Goober in the popular TV series The Andy Griffith Show, where he spent five years on one of the most popular running series ever on television. He later reprised his role on Mayberry R.F.D. George expanded his talents following Mayberry R.F.D. by recording a comedy album in Nashville called “Goober Sings”. It was in Nashville that he was approached to continue the character of Goober in the popular television variety show Hee Haw. It would prove to be a successful venture for George and he would work with Hee Haw for the next 20 years. In addition to Hee Haw , he also appeared in numerous guest roles on television shows such as The Rifleman, Twilight Zone and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. He also got a part in the feature film Ensign Pulver and played numerous Disney movie roles. Lindsey’s humanitarian achievements over the years have been notable. He has raised more than 1 million dollars for the Special Olympics. For 17 years, he conducted the George Lindsay Celebrity Golf Tournament in Montgomery, Alabama which raised money for mentally retarded children. He also helped raise funds for an aquatic center for the Alabama State Hospital for the Mentally Retarded. These efforts helped earn Lindsey induction into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. In 1992, UNA presented Lindsey with a honorary doctor of humane letters degree. In 1998, he helped establish the George Lindsey/ University of North Alabama Television and Film Festival. It is an annual event that provides young filmmakers the opportunity to show their work and learn more about the filmmaking industry. Through his contacts in the entertainment industry, he has been able to bring in as featured artists such luminaries as Ernest Borgnine and Tom Cherones."
