Yesterday afternoon, #1 (first) wife Dianne and I drove to Birmingham to have a fabulous, joyful, side-splitting laughter reunion dinner with a very old friend from our University of Alabama Law School and later days, and his daughter and one of his sons. But I'm still in recovery from being jolted like a bolt of lightning went through me when I heard toward the end of our time together that my old dear friend has Alzheimer's. I would not have known it from our fond reminiscing. During the drive back to Tuscaloosa, I cussed plenty about what befell this truly remarkable man and his family. Perhaps another day, I will feel up to singing stanzas from parts of his heart songs that I know. Right now, all I can manage is remember him move many years ago from strumming to three-finger picking a guitar and singing "Gentle on my mind."
Such a great time with you and D! Long lost friends! Daddy thoroughly enjoyed!❤️

Danny Kolhage’s share of the $15+ million in reporting errors made by the most recently cited four county commissioners rung up with $20,000 in fines by the Florida Commission on Ethics was “only” $2,254,648, putting him a distant third to Heather Carruthers’ $7.4 million and David Rice’s $4.5 million. But Kolhage was easily in 1st Place in errors of form, omitting 24 addresses and 309 entries on his investment portfolio. He was tied for 2nd with Carruthers with $5,000 in fines. Continue reading »
One Response to “ETHICS VIOLATIONS / “It’s all Danny’s fault if we lose.””
And, I imagine, Arnaud Girard also had this in mind:
Responses to “Davidson: “A joint meeting of the affordable/workforce housing committee and the school board should be convened immediately.””
U.S. Navy aircraft carrier jet fighter pilot Capt. Ed was flying on John McCain's wing when he was shot down over Vietnam.
Meanwhile, in a very different kind of war,
This afternoon brings the "Iron Bowl", the traditional cross-state rivals clash between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers.
Alabama is undefeated this year, ranked #1, sometimes called "rat poison". Much improved #6 Auburn, after close losses to LSU and Clemson, has its heart set on ruining yet another Crimson Tide perfect regular season and appearance in the SEC Championship and then in the BSC Championship playoffs. The game is in Auburn. I'll be spectating in Moe's soul food Pub in Tuscaloosa, where I seriously doubt there will be one Auburn fan.
