    Default "Piece of Work"

    Back in the late 60's, while growing up as a Kid, my BFF's Father was a North Carolina Redneck...he had that slow Southern drawl, and I loved that Guy ! R.I.P.

    He used to say I was a "piece of work"...As a Chicago-born Yankee, I KNEW that probably wasn't a compliment, but he always said it with a smile on his face...

    Fast forward, many years later, to a Jimmy Buffett and Toby Keith song..."Piece of Work"...

    Yes...that pretty much describes me in adulthood !!!

    Back in the 70s in SC an expression often used about me and the wife, both yankees, was "you are a mess". Said with a smile. Southerners are like that.

    (1801-1850)

    Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation … it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

    --James Garfield, the twentieth president of the United States, 1877
