About Me

My photo
I grew up in a family of Southern storytellers. Back in 2004, I started Whole Bean to continue the tradition in a new medium. Over the years, I've written about families and friends, peculiar situations, extended road trips, recalcitrant home appliances, and many things for which I'm truly grateful. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Yes! Spring beckons! For two afternoons in a row, I've driven with the top down on my 328i, listening to music ranging all the way from Chuck Mangione to 3 Doors Down. I can hear the birdies singing high in the trees, and today I even smelled freshly trimmed grass. Mamma Mia! Fire up the grill...find the blender...pull out the shorts and t-shirts. Warm weather is almost here!

And we now have a presidential election, do we not? Looks as if it may be interesting. Will John Kerry name John Edwards as his running mate? Who knows? In the words of Scarlett O'Hara, "After all, tomorrow is another day." (This being Atlanta and all, I must throw in one "Gone with the Wind" reference.)
