Goodbye Trixie

Today, we remember Trixie.

I choose to remember her in her prime—not the sad state in which her life was ended.

She was sleek, exciting and dressed in a beautiful shade of blue…

Yep, there’s no beating that 2002 Pontiac Sunfire that faithfully transported my wife for the better part of 10 years.

Bad idea

It took until mile 12 on the day of the race, but I finally realized that running a half marathon was a bad idea.

Greer will miss Tony Tipton

I’ve never seen a town that loves its football like Greer, and I’ve never met a man who loved Greer football quite like Tony Tipton.

Tony was an ambassador for Greer High School and an advocate for all Yellow Jacket sports. His passing will certainly leave a void in the hearts of his friends and family.


This national championship was due for Clemson.

Over the past couple of years, there hasn’t been a college football team that has done more to put itself in a position to succeed like the Tigers.


It’s something man knows very little about.

Each year, between 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 12:00 a.m. on Jan. 1, people resolve to become better versions of themselves, pledging to improve wealth, spirituality, physical appearance and all kinds of other good stuff.

I don’t get it.


Alright, Clemson fans.

Second chances come so rarely in this life, but you’re about to get yours.


As a lover of all things Christmas, I’ve decided I want to be your guide as you sort through all of the holiday movie choices. There are good ones out there, but there are also some really, really bad ones.


My wife and I are habitually late.

This is not something I’m just now realizing, but it’s something I’m finally willing to admit out loud.

Haunting memory

As a North Carolina basketball fan, there’s a certain night in April I’ve tried to forget.

When your team loses the National Championship on a buzzer beater, you don’t recover quickly, if ever.

Choir practice

There are several years in my childhood I no longer speak of for fear of being made fun of.

Not that I’m a super self-conscious person, but I’d rather not bring unwanted ridicule on myself. I get enough of that as it is.
