Let's see who all really reads my blog.
How many of you knew that I was a "preacher" once? I sure was, in 1972, my first semester at Harding a friend asked me to preach for him one Sunday morning at Russel, Arkansas. He was going back home to Ohio for a visit and he never returned. My one Sunday turned in to 3-4 months. Russel is about 10-12 miles from Searcy and about all I remember from that experience is the drive. Well a few more little things. One of them concerns another side of me that you probably don't know at all. That is that I think I really could be a stand up comedian simply with two different stories I could tell that would keep you in stitch for hours.
One is that all the time I was at the Russel Church of Christ, I had this horrible FEAR that one of the two or three dozen elderly people at the church would die and I would be asked to do their funeral. The different scenarios that I came up with for NOT doing it are hilarious. The other story has to do with my vasectomy, I won't even start with that one.
I do hope you enjoy what I do. Comments and/or remarks are appreciated.
