Christmas tree care

It's hard to believe Christmas is almost here. At my house we take holidays one at a time. I try not to think about Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it's time to select a Christmas tree.

I remember as a child going with my father to find a Christmas tree on my family's farm. The selection was not great, but with luck we would find an Eastern Red Cedar tree that would pass my mother's inspection.

Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This …

Two things were almost always around when I was a child: Dogs and shotguns.

Paying tribute to a wise man

Today, I ask for a moment of personal privilege. It was two years ago this week that I wrote about the Three Wise Men that have so greatly influenced my life: Roy Hodnett, a real estate magnate on Saint Simons Island; Dr. Raymond Cook, my college professor, now residing in Valdosta and John W. Jacobs Jr., a broadcast pioneer and philanthropist from Gainesville. All three in their 90s or close to it. All three a part of the Greatest Generation. All three family men of faith.
