What do you do?

Hey Walker, didn't your wife used to teach at one of the Doyle schools back in the day? I think she was there when I did student teaching. She was in the teacher's lounge one day describing a cake someone had brought into the radio station in the shape of, shall we say, a part of the anatomy... " I remember that cake...she kept saying.."BUT IT IS SO TINY!" I forgot, between jobs in 1972 I was a Sub Teacher and I only worked at the old Doyle High because even then I tried to keep it "GREEN" nad carpool! I was really bad..often forgot I had a class and they would find me in that teachers lounge with the coaches. Back then it paid 25 bucks per day and that wasn't bad! As for Yankee ME thinks this fellow is just trying to make people mad while noticing him. If half of what he says is true then he is the biggest fool of all to remain here! Delta is ready when you are. Yep I kinda like the heck out of E. TN and never met anyone who worked her who didn't want to retire right back her!  (Jun 18, 2008 | post #45)

What do you do?

We (wife and I) have restored some buildings we own in downtown Murvle. She is still working and I am now collecting rent and playing in the areas only..FOLK/BLUES/O LDIES/FOLK band http://themountain folkreunion.blogsp ot.com/ Get this I turned 60 in April and I am the SECOND YOUNGEST in the band! People love to come to the shows just to see who passes out first. Oh and although I can't spell I write books and short stories. Used to write for papers (bout all of them in this area) but gave it up when the facts started to get in the way of the story. In another life I also spent 33 years in radio and TV both locally and then for a year (communted on the weekends cause I was doing radio in Knoxville daily) in Nashpatch. In my early days I was a fine bag boy for my dad at his grocery story in Murvle and the tallest kid in my class! I was great at growing and made the folks very proud.  (Jun 18, 2008 | post #33)

Favorite part of Knoxville

OK being a big Murvle kid who loves OUR (Murvle) downtown I do have some fav. Knox spots. As a kid that alley where the shoe shops were behind Millers, the smells and the people were outstanding. Also in the olden times, The S&W. It was something to carry our own tray (Daddy didn't want to tip!) and then for me to go get him coffee. Today, downtown Knoxville on a cool late SUNDAY afternoon. No kidding it is quiet, the shawdows are really beautiful and it blends what was and what is going to be. Oh and for those who wanta move I agree with them, get out! That way you won't be in my way when I tailgate on Saturday before I join 107 thousand of my new best friends to watch us beat Florida.  (Jun 18, 2008 | post #11)

What's up with WBIR?

Tom Brokaw do it in the interim" Those that know the guy say he wants to do LESS than more! Remember his home is way out west not in D.C. and it would really be hard for him to hang in that town all week working on the show when he could have been catching fish! As for whatserface... Andrea...man they are working her to dang death. She is on MSNBC early and late and out covering junk mid dang day. Best just shut down the show, tim was in and they don't have anyone who even comes close to the guy.  (Jun 16, 2008 | post #7)

2008 Presidential Election

Barack Obama sets up internet 'war room' to fight slurs

Loved the person who said voters don't know the real bareback! WHO DOES. As for a site to fight racials slurs (english translation...anyo ne who does not like me running against a war hero) why not. Hey even though Bareback was married by Rev. Wright and associated with most of the vile folks who would love to see "dem white folk dead" the best way to adjust those problems is to turn the gun in the other direction. I bet he will get votes just because of the site.  (Jun 11, 2008 | post #1994)

I loved you and CP on the radio back in the day. Made my trips to Madisonville every morning going to college much more enjoyable. Marc seemed very hostile toward you and Kim and Frank thought there might be some kind of confrontation if he saw you." Thanks! Glad we made you giggle on that long drive to HIAwasssIeee. As for a confrontation last fight I was in was with Pete in 77 and we just yelled at each other up and down the hall at WRJZ. Later we had a fine traded dinner at Altrudas and laughed about it. I did see Kim that morning and brother does she look good. No kidding, most of those I know from back in the day are either dead or looking like they should be...this gal has taken care of her self. I also talked to Brad (we worked with him back in the JACOR days) and that was about it. I hope all is peace and light now, too old to get mad and too tired to remember why I got mad in the first place. Thanks for the nice thoughts of the olden times!  (Jun 10, 2008 | post #20)
