Do y’all have an Aunt Connie, too?

I have an Aunt Connie, and if you’ve followed me on my radio show, or fb, then you know all about her. She’s the mac to my cheese. She’s amazing. She has loved me unconditionally, when I was most certainly unlovable. She has jumped in the car when I’ve said, “Hey, wanna go to…” withoutContinue reading “Do y’all have an Aunt Connie, too?”

Life has been…difficult, lately

I wrote the title to this blog 4 days ago. Four. I just had the hardest time coming up with what to say, how to say, why to say…anything.

Memphis

I’m dedicating this blog to my mama, who lives in Arkansas and had the horrible misfortune of being on the phone with me last night when someone starting shooting what sounded like an AR-15 somewhere near my house. At 9:30 at night. LOUDLY and over and over. I hung up, called the police, and calledContinue reading “Memphis”
