Rutherford County will be decked out in red, white and blue this weekend as citizens celebrate the Fourth of July.
I will get to Kyle Busch shortly, but lets talk a little local baseball first.
Fourth of July brings out the barbecues. If you want to provide your guests something more than a burger or hot dog, here are some recipes from The Southern Living Party Cookbook (copyright 1972).
Gotten a note lately?
I knew tomorrow would be a busy day as I went to bed that night. It was one of those "I'd better sleep fast" nights because my schedule was overflowing for the next day. In fact, as I thought about it, I knew the whole week would be that way.
So the next morning, I packed a lunch, knowing that I wouldn't have time to eat out with anyone and would have to work straight through just to get a good jump on things. My wife had made her delicious chicken salad so I made a sandwich out of it and packed it along with a slice of apple pie. Our younger daughter walked up and said, "Daddy, do you want me to get you a bag?"
I said, "Sure, sweetie, and thanks."
When I opened my bag to eat lunch, I reached in, thinking I was getting a sandwich, and pulled out a note instead, in my daughter's handwriting. It read, "Dear Daddy, Don't work too hard today. I love you!"
The really cool thing about this is when she was younger, I packed her lunch bags and always included little love notes. What you give, you really do get back, don't you? I've kept that note on my desk now for a lot of years to remind me to Live Positive and make a life worth living.

Men have this uncanny ability to compartmentalize most of what we do. We can simply, mentally, separate one thing from another. We can neatly detach our fatherhood from our hunting and fishing, and each of these from us being a husband.
