HUCKABY: A time for reflection and thanks

I am thankful for memories — even sad ones — because memories mean that significant events have occurred in my life. I am thankful for every card and letter and phone call of encouragement I have received over the past two years and I am thankful for each and every prayer that has been sent heavenward on my behalf.

HUCKABY: No longer all tied up

There is one problem that being a former educator has produced. What do I do with all those crazy school ties?

HUCKABY: Trying to combat the leaves of fall

Sometimes I wish I could just pave over the yard and paint it green. I have been doing this for weeks now and when I look up into the trees they still look 95 percent full. Yet another disadvantage of being a retired school teacher.

HUCKABY: Say it aint so

I am a man of tradition. That’s another way to say that I am old and set in my ways, I suppose. If it was good enough for my parents it should be good enough for me.

HUCKABY: Podcast way to share old memories

I don’t know how he knows but Jodey, who is really good at this stuff, tells me that we have a couple thousand regular listeners in 30 states and five or six foreign nations. Folks are sitting down in the United Kingdom and Norway listening to me talk about how things used to be in the American South. It’s a great country, isn’t it. Who’d a thunk it?

HUCKABY: Key West a destination unlike any other

The inhabitants here call their little piece of paradise the Conch Republic because in 1982, when the U.S. Government set up barricades on U.S. 1 and stopped and searched every car coming into Key West, the city council voted to secede from the Union and become an independent republic. The whole thing was rather tongue-in-cheek but it got Key West the attention it was seeking and soon the roadblock was lifted.

HUCKABY: Remembering good principals

I don’t know if those principals got anything out of listening to me last week, but I certainly enjoyed the trip down Memory Lane the opportunity afforded me.

HUCKABY: Oh, sweet tea

Yankees say we Southerners are not too bright. At least we know enough chemistry to understand the melting point of sugar.

HUCKABY: Revisiting my bucket list

Checking things off your list is a whole lot tougher than you think.

HUCKABY: Attic cleaning brings back memories of Mom

This week I found myself with a bit of spare time on my hands and thought I might earn a few brownie points by attacking the accumulated clutter of the past three decades. After all, the holiday season is just around the corner. Imagine Lisa’s delight when she trudges upstairs to get the Christmas wreaths this year and finds that order has replaced chaos. That’s what I told myself, but alas, it was not to be. This time it was quilts.

HUCKABY: Memories of my daughter, the bride

Dear Dr. Jamie Leigh, I can’t wait to walk you down the aisle. I know that you will be the most beautiful bride in the history of marriage and I am thankful that God has let me hang around long enough to enjoy this moment.

HUCKABY: Everyone is going back to school but me

I loved back-to-school shopping when I was a kid. I was a nerd before the word was coined. I can still close my eyes and smell those fresh Crayola crayons.

HUCKABY: Preparing for life without my classroom

I’m getting a little sad thinking about another school year starting but this time without me leading a classroom.

Salem Camp Meeting and homemade ice cream go hand in hand.

HUCKABY: A lesson I learned after I knew it all

T.J. Stripling was one of the most highly recruited football players in the state of Georgia -- and that means in the world.
