People not from the South often wonder aloud about the origins of “Hee Haw.” Their answer is in clips like this one from the semi-legendary Lonzo & Oscar (intro by the terrific Marty Robbins). I just found a great old LP at my local Goodwill store. It’s on the long-forgotten Guest Star label and is entitled “Greatest Comedy Stars of the Grand Ole Opry.” It also includes bits by Homer & Jethro, Cousin Jody, Brother Oswald. Fun stuff and a bargain at just 99 cents. As I have said many times before, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!”

What do you think of when you think of Cocoa Beach? Most folks from my generation think of the classic TV show “I Dream of Jeannie,” which was set in this coastal Florida community. Major Anthony Nelson (played by Larry Hagman) was in the Air Force and I’m sure most of you know that Cape […]
Meat Boss has only been open for a few short months. But they have already created quite a stir in a town that prides itself in knowing a thing or two about good BBQ. The Brick Pit has a very large following. The Shed can make a similar claim. And Moe’s Original BBQ has recently […]
On our return trip from Palm Beach, we decided to take an alternate eastern route and spend the night in the historic city of St. Augustine. It had been decades since my last visit, so it all seemed new again to me. St. Augustine remains a striking town with equal parts Savannah, Mobile, and Charleston. Southern, […]
Look for this sign (above) when touring historic St. Augustine, Florida. It should prove to be especially welcoming on a hot summer’s day.
