    Herchel's Blog

    I'm not a blogger, so this may be my only entry.

    I have attended two funerals this week, one on Monday and one today. I had tears running down my cheeks at both. Both were members of my church, so I didn't have to drive but about 3 miles each time.

    The first was a great man. He was a tall, elegant man who was truly gifted. He was the epitome of a Southern gentleman ( most of you probably don't know what that means ). He was a big shot without ever acting like one. You never learned of his accomplishments from him. He was a true renaissance man, sailor, pilot, humorist, successful businessman. A lifelong Pub, he was appointed to important commissions by three Dem governors. He was the framer of Georgia's constitution.

    Today, I attended the funeral of a greater man, who was a member of my Sunday school class. His was a life of giving. I don't type well enough to list all that he did, but he was magnificent.

    On a brighter note, I took my two year old grandaughter for a ride in the golf cart a few minutes ago. When we got to the other end of the driveway, a fawn ran up to about five yards from us and just stopped and watched us for the longest time. My grandaughter was thrilled.

    This should be a pay-per-view blog. I'm good for $10 a month to see what goes through Herchel's head.

    to see what goes through Herchel's head.

    Now this is a blog. I would be jealous if I was a jealous person. I am impressed because I am an impressionable person. This is awesome.

    If you need a manager to sell this to the syndicates, I am looking for a career change. Looks like a gravy train to me.

    Herchel, in all seriousness. Some of us tune in here just to see what you will say about pollen falling on an automobile. You have a gift and are gifted with living a full life and knowing and being a part of others lives who get as much out of their contact with you as you do with them.

    Run on sentence. See, you are much better than me.

    Another not so happy day. Last year my brother was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. We have been keeping this fact from our aged parents. Yesterday my niece spilled the beans. I gave them some BS about new wonder drugs, but I don't know if they bought it.

    Re: Herchel's Blog

    I entered the information age today. I purchased a Garmin 765 GPS. I have an appointment tomorrow at 1360 Peachtree Street. Garmin does not recognize Peachtree Street. It offers Peachtree Way, Peachtree Battle Ave, and about 10 others, but not Peachtree Street.

    This event has shaken my belief in modern technology.

    You'll probably have to pay to upgrade the maps. BTW, there are way too many "Peachtree" roads in the Atlanta metro area.
