On lineage

When I first moved to Georgia nearly 27 years ago, a shopkeeper said, “Epps ... hmmm. Unusual name. Where are you from?”

“I moved here from Colorado,” I replied.

“No, no,” he responded, “Where are your people from?”

“Northeastern Tennessee,” I shared.

I read somewhere once that, by the time we are 19 years old, give or take a couple of years, we are who we are for the rest of our lives. The essence of who we are and who we will be for the rest of our lives is permanently formed.

It was 40 years ago, Friday, Feb. 13, 1970, that I arrived at Parris Island, South Carolina at “zero dark-thirty” a.m. I’d like to say that I was motivated to enlist by intense patriotism during a time of war, but the simple truth is less honorable.

It’s my birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. and I share the same birthday, though not the same year of birth. My cousin John Honeycutt, four years younger than I, also shares the same birth date. On Jan. 15, I hit the big five-nine.

Teaching dogs to dance

A few weeks ago, I was visiting with family in northeastern Tennessee. Out to dinner with my brother and his wife, we were joined by their 7-year-old granddaughter, Annie.
Annie is smart (“I’ve never made anything less than an ‘A’ in school.”), pretty, affectionate, and a chatterbox.

I always seem to be on the short end of the stick. If I want to buy something special for a family member, they have just sold the last one.
