Missed a spot...

During a recent trip to Publix, a young lady stood in front of me at the deli. One of her arms was covered with tattoos, save for the elbow area. I'd been in this situation before, and still, I couldn't resist. "You missed a spot.”


I got the same reaction as last time. She was not amused.

Anybody else hate when you’re at a public restroom and the toilet flushes before you’re done with your business?


I watched some of the Philadelphia-Dallas game last night and thought about former Cowboys coach Tom Landry, who took emotionless persona to another level. Here's a few beauties about the Hall of Fame coach.


When Walt Garrison was asked if Landry ever smiled, the former Cowboys fullback replied: “I don’t know. I only played there for nine years.”


And former Cowboys quarterback Don Meredith said: “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.”


Being a Georgia Tech football fan is tough these days. Saturday, I sat at Bobby Dodd Stadium and watched Notre Dame beat the Jackets 31-13. On the bright side, Tech launched alcohol sales this season.


Farewell to 007. Sean Connery died Saturday. Though he'll forever be the face of James Bond, Connery had many memorable roles. My favorite was his portrayal of William Forrester, the Salinger-like character in Finding Forrester. What's your favorite Connery role other than 007?

100-Book Goal Reached

Half-heartedly, I set a goal at the beginning of 2020: Read 100 books in a year. An auspicious goal considering I'd read 33 in 2019. But I figured what the hell. My friend Pete Williams did it in 2019
