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: 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.

That’s what I told myself, but alas, it was not to be. This time it was quilts.

HUCKABY: May be time to get out the paddle

I decided the other day that I would try to find out where I could put my hands on a good sized load of gopher wood — just in case, you know. I mean, it hasn’t rained for 40 days and 40 nights, yet, but we haven’t been more than 40 hours without a good hard rain since the woods burned over.

HUCKABY: Make the 4th more than a date on the calendar

Remember the old joke, "Do they have a Fourth of July in England?"

HUCKABY: Mason-Dixon Line, the language barrier

I was doing really well at my new career of trip planner and tour guide. I really was. I got 50 people to Boston and back safely on my maiden voyage, without creating an international incident — or even a sectional one.

HUCKABY: Private conversations a thing of the past

What this country needs is not a good 5-cent cigar, but a return to the days of the telephone booth.
