This blog has been created as a tongue in cheek view of daily living in the United States.
I’m now one of those people who can catch eyerolls from a majority of age groups now. Growing up in 60’s and attending college in the early 70’s kinda puts me in the geezer category. I was moved to Athens, Ga. in the mid 50’s and started first grade there the following month. The one advantage to being a “dam yankee” was I got to be General Grant at recess. That offered me the opportunity to get the crap beat out of me every day. So you grow with a jaded view as to what constitutes fun as a kid. Dyslexia and a speech impediment made learning a challenge. To this day I have not found Elmer Fudd particularly amusing. I graduated from UGA as possibly the worst student ever to receive a diploma. I’ve been married now for 35 years to my lovely wife. She puts up with a lot.
