My Crazy Life – The First Church of Southern Football re-opens its doors….August 29, 2011

              It’s almost September, and The First Church of Southern Football has re-opened its doors, and the faithful congregation is back in the fold. And, as anyone from the South will tell you, Saturday is considered a Holy Day around here.             I began devouring my Southern Living magazine the minute I grabbed it from the mailbox, and found The 10 Commandments of College Football Fandom.

That Day in September (a personal remembrance of 9/11) By Artie Van Why

  From the Book: I want it to go away, I don’t want it to have happened. But it won’t, and it did, and I was there. I wanted to catch that falling man with the flailing arms and legs. But I couldn’t, and I didn’t, though I was there. I wanted to be a hero, doing more than I humanly could. But I wasn’t, and I didn’t. I wanted to stay there, in the…

I headed out to the barn to get the mower. On the way out the back door, I rang the bell to signal The Princess and The Pea. Ryka (The Princess) came running. She is the dutiful dog and…
