Assimilation… or not.

While Wharton claims he may now have been “assimilated” into the culture of Action Greensboro, I seriously doubt it. While I, too, attended last night’s follow-up meeting to the Greenville bus trip – I saw no reason for ‘assimilation’.  What I saw and heard were a bunch of people who are very serious about moving [...]

Back to the grind

Well now, that was fun.  The first half of my century on this earth has been properly celebrated.  Thanks to everyone for your greetings, cards, kind words, libations and presence – either physically or in spirit.  Jinni and I spent all day yesterday in mainly horizontal poisitions with a few trips to the basement where [...]

Tu Blogga es mi Blogga

Well, the lunatics are now in control of the asylum: we’ve hijacked Hogg’s Blog in the midst of this fine 50th (Fiftieth!) Birthday Party for the man of the hour, the finest man most of us have ever known, Mr. David Eugene Hoggard of Hodgenville, Kentucky. He’s playing a mean medley on the piano for the [...]

Nope.   War [...]

Roll on Whirlies

Grimsley wins.  I couldn’t be more proud of Jackson and his partners in pigskin. Although their defensive play arguably won tonight’s quarter-final game against a very talented Mt. Tabor team, it was individual efforts on the part of Grimsley’s offense that put points on the board. I wish I had a video of last night’s remarkable [...]

Turkey… up in smoke… again

The thing that awakened me at 2:30 this morning was the churning and gurgling sounds emanating from our other Rottweiler; name of ‘Naughty’.  She has exhibited a weak constitution from the day we brought her home from Rottweiler Rescue three years ago so she is on a strict diet of lamb and rice dog food [...]

Birthday greetings

Sorry for the silence.  I’ve been working in Charlotte and just never went through all of the barriers I was encountering getting on the net at my friend Gene Cline’s house.  But anyway… Today is a banner day – The Hogg has turned the big five-o and he is feeling pretty damn good about it. [...]

Well said, and oh so true…

Pointing out hypocricy has been raised to an artform by N&R letter writer David Whitehead… “Perhaps at their next convention the Baptists will vote overwhelmingly to exclude any church that offers membership to wealthy people. I have it on good authority that it will be easier for a camel to go through the eye of [...]

The last chapter… sort of.

I’m headed to Charlotte for a few days having just finished a job on a wonderful old National Registry home up in Eden, NC.  The reason for my wide travels of late is because it is getting cold and folks are desirous of sealing up the windows in their old houses – with flair. While [...]
