At thirty years old, I have had the distinct pleasure of growing up (this growing still continues) in the great state of Georgia. Not anything, other than my great family has had a greater impact on my growth and formation than Lewis Grizzard. My mother placed in my hands his columns and books from an early age and his sage wisdom and humor has carried with me since that first day. From being a Georgia fan, loving my good dogs, and moving around the country only to realize Georgia is home... You led me Mr. Grizzard and I will always appreciate that... I hope you and Catfish are happy where you are.
