Martha Cox

If you have only been here in the past three years, you may not have known my Martha. If you have been, as so many of our guests, a long-term visitor to Riverview, you would have known my pretty, little brown eyed girl. You can probably close your eyes and see her walking from dining room to dining room with … Read More

Quail Hunting and Hospitals

I have spent 45+ years of my life in the quail hunting business. Due to Martha’s valiant fight with cancer, I have also spent a great deal of time in multiple hospitals in the past year. The one thing that I have quickly learned is that it is much easier to break into a hospital than to break out of … Read More

Cold Weather

Brrr, it is cold outside! I once was told not to knock the weather because without it, 90% of the population would not know how to start a conversation. However, I do believe that one of our Yankee guests left home to visit us without closing the door. We are staring at three days of much below normal temperatures.   … Read More

Perfect Quail Hunting Days

If I had promised a man a pretty day, and he would not accept yesterday or today as a pretty day, I would just have to be inclined to whip his butt. The last two days have been absolutely perfect quail hunting days. Then there is the icing on the cake which is a full moon. When that full moon … Read More

Just A Few Observations

I read the other day that brain cells last as long as you do. You are born with a hundred billion or so at birth, and that is all that you are ever going to have. It has been estimated that you lose about 500 of them an hour; so if you have any serious thinking to do there really … Read More

Rebel, Riverview and Gun Insanity

Well, after having to spend a week in Augusta University Hospital last week with Martha, I finally got to play with my new English Cocker puppy, Rebel. Before talking about Rebel, let me say that with God’s Grace and Mercy plus the excellent doctors at Augusta University Hospital, Martha is home and doing fine. I guess that she is like … Read More

We are gonna have a baby!

OK, now that the title has rocked your socks, let me hasten to clarify that title. Martha and I are not going to have a baby as that would rank right up there behind the immaculate conception of Jesus. Neither are any of our adult children who are all in their 40’s, and have decided that they are finished with … Read More

The Dog Days of Summer

When I was a little boy and would hear my parents talking about August being the Dog Days of Summer, I just assumed that was due to the fact that it was so hot that only a dog could live outside in Southwest Georgia during August. Much to my chagrin, I have discovered that the Romans coined this phrase thousands … Read More
