My son Christopher is now 18. My wife, Sharon, was so sorry that her mother left her money to Christopher so he's driving a fully paid for red 2005 Ranger 4x4.

He works in a welding shop located on the second floor of our warehouse in Tuscaloosa's railyard. The picture of the warehouse is at & it's labeled "Archie's Whorehouse".

Christopher's boss,Paul, is the top ornamental iron cat in Tuscaloosa so Christopher is getting fine tuned on shaping metal.

I was going down Queen City yesterday and noticed this pile of trash with Ray Perkin's face staring out of it.
I drove around the block and parked illegally at one of those little rotaries the T-DOT DEVIL put in.

Out of the pile I got two mint condition Tuscaloosa phone books from '66 & '68 [McIntyre Broox Town & Campus Apts. 345-6976],
a pristene '58 Hammond's Historical Atlas and an '83 28 inch X 18 inch Ray Perkins BAMA Football Team calender. Each month is illustrated with an 19 inch X 18 inch aerial photo of Denny Stadium at full capacity with Verner School in the background.

Now I'm gonna cut this thing up and send one to Doctor's Point so if anybody else wants one, send me your address and we'll see what happens.

This afternoon my son, Christopher & I were gathering up spare change and he mentioned that his buddy, Rocky, had told him how I ragged Rocky's ass about not picking up money at this house over on 20th Avenue East we were pitching that got hit by a drive-by & had 8 holes , looked like .38s, bullet holes in the door & a pool of dried blood by the door leaving out of the living room. [Rocky found one of the slugs]

Anyway when Rocky told Christopher the story, Christopher asked if I had used one of Lee Pake's mother's expressions, "PICK UP THE PENNIES, THE DOLLARS WILL FOLLOW."

Rocky said, "Yes, but your Daddy told me another story about seeing a carpet man pick up money in an apartment parking lot and the carpet man asked him, 'You know why I pick up this money?
I pick it up because this is written on each coin.' & the carpet man pointed to IN GOD WE TRUST."

Christopher and I also talked about people who don't appreciate one thing you do for them. NOTHINGS EVER GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEM!
& we agreed that we pay off because we don't want the headache of dealing with delusions of grandeur from some mooching VICTIM OF SOCIETY
who has a higher opinion of themselves than anybody else on the f*ckin' face of the EARTH!


P.S. When you get a chance read about Winston Churchill's adventures in Cuba in 1895.

I love that song

Hey Robert,

My name is Jeffrey and I am 16 years old. I live in Alabama and have always been an Alabama fan. Coach Bryant is one of my heroes. I didn't live during Coach Bryant's lifetime, but I have read about him and I respect him very much. I listened to the song "The Day Bear Bryant Died", it was very good. No one in Alabama will forget him, he meant so much to so many people. I liked the song so much that I added it to my own profile. January 26, 1983 is one of those days like November 22, 1963, you will never forget where you were when you heard the fateful news. Coach Bryant meant a lot to a lot of people, those he knew and those he didn't. Your song helps send out a much needed tribute to Coach Bryant.

My dad, who worked at Fort Rucker as assistant to the Chief Engineer, told me that "Zero Defects" was an oxymoron, inasmuch as there is no such thing.

President Bush stepped into the entrance of Hallway 1 at Enterprise High School last Saturday. Four high school seniors, still in shock from the loss of their friends and their school, stood several feet away.

When Bush asked for the student government president to identify herself, Megan Parks lifted her hand up. Her eyes welled with tears. The president walked over to where the students stood and embraced Parks. He kissed her on the forehead and, as he held her, told her it was OK to cry.

The four students who met with the president on that morning tell stories of a man they say was genuine in his concern for what happened on that horrible Thursday afternoon when a tornado took aim on their school.

"It just felt like it was really about us and not about him," senior class representative Meg King said.

Bush spent about 15 to 20 minutes with the students, and visited with each of them individually for a brief time. When he asked King about her experience, she told him they weren't far from where her car was parked.

"Would you like to see my car?" she asked.

They walked over to her Mazda Tribute, which was still driveable, but all of the windows had been blown out and shattered glass littered the inside. He stopped a moment to look around at the destruction, then noticed her University of Alabama tag.

"Alabama, huh?" he asked her.

"Yes sir. Roll Tide," she replied.

"Roll Tide," he said.

He stressed the importance of leadership to each of them, and explained the need to be an example during difficult times.

"He told me and Megan that since we were presidents, we were looked up to by our peers," senior class president Sarah Carroll said. "Even though times are hard, he told us we needed to stay strong and set a good example."

On the floor of Hallway 1 is a tile rendering of a Wildcat. Underneath the Wildcat are the letters EHS.

No one steps on the Wildcat, not the secret service, the governor of Alabama or the President of the United States.

"We had to make sure no one stepped on the Wildcat, so we sort of asked the secret service to barricade it for us," Strickland said.

It didn't keep Gov. Riley, however, from coming a bit too close.

Senior class representative Charlie Strickland said Carroll calmly touched the governor's arm and guided him around the Wildcat.

"If you walk on the Wildcat, you have to clean it with a toothbrush," Carroll told the governor, only half-joking.

The president gave each of the students a special pin that carries the presidential seal. Parks pinned it on her EHS color guard jacket as she walked out of Hallway 1 with the president.

"If I had to sum it up in one word, I would probably use compassion," Parks said. "I could tell that he wasn't just coming for image or because he had to. You could tell he really wanted to."
