Reading Ruby's Sword, I find myself smiling as the author describes how the little girl, Ruby, laid down on the ground, looking at the blue sky as a single cloud went by. The wind blew and the grass parted to reveal SWORDS!

The late columnist, writer, humorist and avowed southerner, Lewis Grizzard once said, “The nearest thing to heaven is a home-grown tomato.” I think he may have been right, and if not right, close. A home-grown tomato is pure, natural and, at its best, southern. What could be closer to heaven than that?

NOTE: I wrote this two years ago on August 16, 2019 when my father passed away. We had a complicated relationship, meaning, I had not seen or spoken to him in years. I share this for anyone who is in the same situation I was. Just about everyone told me how to feel, but as you will see at the end, it is all how you look at things.

Since one COVID-19 vaccine has received emergency use authorization for individuals ages 12 and up, I have received many questions from parents who want to do the best thing for their child’s health and wellness – now and in the future. In some cases, parents have just recently become comfor…

Years ago, I lived in Hawaii growing up and at night, it could get quite humid as you were trying to go to sleep. We were not far from the north shore and you’d think a sweet cool breeze from the Pacific Ocean would make everything nice and easy, but that was not the case.

Seems I have always been fascinated with mules. My fascination goes all the way back to my boyhood days and the Brim Hollow. My grandfather, Will Herod Brim, owned two working mules, Kate and Liz. (That’s not “Liz” as in Liz Taylor, but “Liz” as in Liza Minelli – long “i.”).
