I had the honor and pleasure

I had the honor and pleasure to meet and talk with Little Roy a few years ago.I was in a dr waiting room and I recognized Little Roy. He was just plain country folk, not putting on airs. We had a nice conversation, and he was just like he always was on tv.. smiling, talking, and down to earth. I love bluegrass music, which was my daddy's favorite.

I hope that countyman attends

I hope that countyman attends since it is actually going to be in the City Limits of Hephzibah. If things haven't changed I believe that Dwayne is on the Hephzibah Police Department. He was several years ago when my eldely parents were hit by someone who ran the stop sign at Story Mill and Fulcher Rds. He was a gracious Police Officer and took great care of my parents until I could get on the scene. Thanks Dwayne!
