Harrison and Hunter's Knoxville Vacation

My nephews, Harrison and Hunter Youngblood, came down from Asheville, NC to Knoxville, TN for a mini-vacation. We had a lot of fun. They spent the day at work with me, got to go to the top of the Sunsphere, visit Ault Street, visit the Ault Cemetery at Macedonia Methodist Church, and visit the boy in the boat.

Fill the Font

It has been years since I have performed a baptism, but today ended the drought. Courtney Davison, and her boyfriend, Michael Rutherford, were baptized today. Courtney asked me to baptize her. It was a real special day. It felt good to wear all white again.

West View Cemetery - Sweetwater, TN

Last week, I was assigned to do a story in Sweetwater. It was about a WWII pilot who had died in France on D-Day. While I was trying to find his grave, I found these two interesting ones.

Have you ever seen a grave that looks like a mound? The other one was a tombstone for a woman - I thought it looked really cool with the sun behind it.

I love the heat, but hate to see half naked people

I am from Texas, so when summer arrives I am a very happy person. The one downsize of the warm temperatures is the nudity I have to see on the sides of the road. It seems like 90 degree weather causes people (who don't need to be exposing skin) to let it all hang out. My advice . . . if you wanna show me your love handles . . . don't. Go find a fan.
