The Simple Farm Life

     Over the years I have had a desire to live on a farm and go back to a simple way of living.  I have always admired the life that my grandparents, Clyde and Marie Walters, lived.  They were very simple people, living simple lives on a farm.  Over the years they raised chickens, had cows, several horses and seemed to always have a liter of puppies.

Mr. Clyde

Ricky Tanksley wrote this song about my granddaddy, Clyde Walters, on January 5, 1998.  He sang it at my granddaddy's funeral the next day.
Mr. Clyde
I married into his family.
He welcomed me with open arms.
It didn't take long 'til we were friends
and that meant so much to me.
The times we fished,
the tales you told,
I never saw you growing old.
As the years went by,
Sometimes I'd see you cry.
You knew this day was coming soon.
On this day, I lost my friend,

It's a Southern Thang

It is exciting to see how many people from all over the world see our website and blog.   Today I want to talk about the South and Southern Hospitality.
True Southern traditions are passed down from generation to generation. 
Manners matter in the South.  Having good manners is ingrained in us from a very young age.  If you are from the south and don’t have good manners, your upbringing will definitely be questioned.
“Please” and “thank you” are a part of our vocabulary.
