Never on Sunday

For some time now I’ve been itching to get into this blog business. Well, not exactly itching because I know it’s going to take some serious thinking on my part to make it interesting and keep it going. But you’ll understand what I mean. Blogging is the big conversation arena of the early twenty-first century. Whether it’s just a fad or here to stay isn’t of great importance to me. What matters is that it’s where a growing number of folks do their talking these days, and I want in on the conversation.

I guess if I’m going to butt in I should introduce myself, so my short bio is that I’m a retired Presbyterian minister living with my wife Betty in Spanish Fort, Alabama – a long way from West Virginia, where we first met, and from Kentucky, where we raised our three sons.

Don’t be put off by the fact that I’m a retired preacher. "Retired" means I don’t preach any more, and I don’t plan to come out of retirement on this blog. These days I’m writing mostly for entertainment – my entertainment, first of all, and maybe yours. Expect to hear from me at least once or twice a week, but never on Sunday. (Remember, I don’t work on Sundays anymore.) And let me hear from you.

  1. Grandpa,

    This is great! I can't wait to read more!



  2. Good for you for getting yourself a blog!! Before you know it - you'll have a huge fan club that sends you emails to check on you when they haven't heard from you in a while!
    Oh - I'm Stephanie. I went to school with Sarah. She's super proud of you! :-)
    Have a great day!!
    ps - I have a blog! www.mom2ava.blogspot.com

  3. Better to post a "blog" before you become a "blob!" We are all sojourners and inkblots on the tapestry of life. Your tongue in check style will provide entertainment for many - myself included. Thanks for your untiring literary skills. Keep up the good work! - Hal J.
