PLEASE, ENOUGH OF THIS same-sex married nonsense. Marriage has always been defined as a union between a man and woman. There are and always have been powers of attorney for same-sex couples, although I realize that the monetary benefits, which are the reason for all this hoopla, would not be available to them. They want to change the age-old definition of “marriage” and “sex.”

RAVES TO Kaila Hunt, of Evans, who played for the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Women’s College World Series. She hit a WHOPPER of a home run.

KUDOS FOR Waynes­boro Police Chief Williams, who is doing what Augusta should have done long ago, i.e., putting patrol cops on the streets. Since his cops play catch with kids, presumably those cops are walking patrols rather than riding around drinking coffee in police cars. It really doesn’t take many walking patrol cops to straighten out a neighborhood, provided those cops are both kind and tough enough.

I DON’T HAVE A solution, but surely there’s got to be a way for me to read a dry paper on rainy days. The carrier did what he could do and tied the bag shut, but the puddles rose in the driveway and seeped into the plastic bag. I got it at 6:45 a.m. and laid it out to dry. It’s currently 4:30 p.m., and it’s still too wet.

CALLED THE EVANS theater to find out what time For Greater Glory was being shown and they said 4:45. When we arrived, they informed us it wasn’t being shown. So why was it listed on their answering machine?

DOES OBAMA REALLY have his barber flown in from Chicago every two weeks? For THAT haircut?

A LETTER SAYS one reason to support the SPLOST tax is because it was created by both Dems and the GOP. All that does is show that both big parties are never to be trusted.

A RANTER LIKES “Government sponsored fight to cure disease.” Rather than getting government out of its unconstitutional “health” business, he wants them to go after the food industry, i.e., the people who feed us all, thus keeping us alive.

HOW MANY PEOPLE listen to 1340 AM when they broadcast the GreenJackets afternoon games? I doubt it’s not near the number who tune in hoping to hear Scott Van Pelt.

To the ranter about the Evans Theater

To the ranter about the Evans Theater, just be glad you weren't there the day they had the romantic interlude. You may be lucky to have missed that.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!

Like Mother’s Day, a holiday for dads was inspired by a daughter's love. Back in 1910, Sonora Smart Dodd petitioned a group of ministers in Spokane, Washington, to honor her widowed dad (who had raised six kids solo), along with other fathers. On the third Sunday in June — still the day we celebrate daddyhood — the pastors of several Washington State churches gave father-focused sermons, and that story was picked up by several newspapers. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge encouraged states to set aside a day to honor fathers, but it wasn’t until June 1972, when President Richard Nixon signed it into law, that it became a permanent national holiday

Men are primping more ......the article says so!

If the spate of new businesses catering to men is any indication, men are primping like never before. And it's not just marketers looking to cash in: Men's buying patterns indicate a growing interest in what they wear and how they look.

As of March 11, sales of men's apparel grew 4.9% from 2011, according to The NPD Group, the market research firm. What's more, the men's facial skincare market -- which includes facial and body skincare, shaving, hair care, and fragrance products -- grew 11% in dollar sales in 2011 from 2010.

soon some will have their own line of makeup.......I can see it now...
Rivermans lip gloss---smooth & glossy
Cgees eye shadow--dusky & sexy
anotherday--cheek powder-pink..rosey
Seans neck cream--sweet & spicey

you see where this is headed....:)

"Men are primping more ......"

It's usually dangerous to paint with such a broad brush. I'm very confident it's not all men, in fact I'm confident it's not even most men who are "primping."

You may have knowledge I'm not privy to, so I won't argue the examples you've chosen. I don't know any of them nearly well enough to dispute your assessment.

Let me assure you there are lots of us who don't do any "primping" at all, or not enough to mention anyway.

Harley....just for you

I know some will never change.....my redneck hubby is one of them---
This is some help on dressing like a redneck!

1
Wear a ball cap. But know that just any cap will not do. Rednecks prefer red or black and the ball cap must sport a logo or saying related to beer, tools, fishing, hunting or women.

2
Dress like a redneck with a proper T-shirt. This favored garment shows pride in your favorite farming equipment company, truck parts store or compliments your cap motif: Think beer, tools, fishing, hunting or women, usually in that order.

Wear a flannel shirt regardless of the weather. The thinner and more worn looking the better. If it is summer time, simply cut the sleeves off. Leave all of the buttons undone for casual wear. For a formal event, rednecks button the bottom two eyes.

4
Select a pair of jeans that have seen better days. An improper fit is essential too. This garment should not compliment one's backside. The brand should be Wrangler, Levis or blue light special du jour, depending on one's social status.

5
Pick shoes that are functional for rough terrain. Work boots are a year-round favorite as are tennis shoes that would never grace the pages of a sports magazine. Fashion conscious rednecks dress in black leather boots broken in at least a decade prior.

seenitB4....

My guess is that the number of men who dress like a "redneck," as you've described, it is about the same as the number who "primp."

I'm guessing the "redneck" description was written by a liberal, elitist metrosexual since it does include an obligatory element of condescension toward men who don't "primp."

It's possible not to "primp" without dressing like a full blown "redneck," though some of the "redneck" characteristics you've highlighted are quite fashionable.

UH, repair the puddles in your driveway. Never mind, I am sure it is easier to complain about it than to do something about it.

Father's Day

BAH-HUMBUG!!! Like Mother's Day and Valentine's; just another day for someone to struggle to find a gift and/or card that appropriately expresses the right sentiment.

I would much rather my children call me up and say "dad, how about pizza and a beer tonight, just you and me". Much more meaningful.

Best adviceI ever got about dressing

...was from my mentor. He picked up a woman's magaizine and pointed at several pages in turn and told me study the advertisements. He then picked up a copy of Esquire and told me do the same. He asked first what I thought of the men in Esquire; elegant,very stylish. And what about the the men in the background of the photographs in the woman's magazine? I really hadn't noticed them. His advice? Dress like Esquire if you are trying to attract attention to yourself; dress like the men in the women's magazine if you are with a lady.

Still do.
