The purpose of this blog is to give me a forum where I can write about the people and places that make up my little corner of heaven, also known as “The South.”
I have lived all my days in the Southeastern United States. I have lived in 4 of the 12 states and visited all of them, except Arkansas. Currently, I live in one of the region’s largest metropolitan areas, Atlanta, but I have lived in one of its smallest, too. (Monroeville, AL pop. 6,500)
A few things I love about this region include sugar white sand beaches, crawfish boils, Mardi Gras, SEC football (Go Gators!), Mint Juleps, fried mullet, raw oysters, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, deviled eggs, pimento cheese sandwiches, Barq’s root beer in a bottle, wisteria, confederate jasmine, azaleas, pink dog wood trees, and bourbon.
When writing, I will select topics that make me smile and reflect warm light on the subject matter. I will only write about politics when provoked.
I named it “Classic Seersucker” because in my mind the quintessential Southern Gentleman is in a Seersucker suit.
