WASHINGTONDec. 2, 2013 —Tonight’s NFL game on ESPN promises to be a great game with the 9-2 New Orleans Saints visiting the 10-1 Seattle Seahawks. Drew Brees and the Saints will put their nine-game MNF winning streak on the line against well-rested Seattle, which won the last meeting 41-36 in a 2010 wildcard playoff. For NFL fans, this game should be just what the doctor ordered. Kick-off is at 8:25 p.m.

For fans of “The Voice,” tonight’s show features live performances of the top six contestants. The eliminations will continue until the winner is announced on December 17. “The Voice” airs tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC.

For more seasonal shows, ABC will be airing one of our favorites at 8 p.m. The Emmy and Peabody-winning animated cartoon; “Charlie Brown Christmas” has been winning the hearts of viewers for almost five decades. Charlie Brown’s complaint that Christmas has become too materialistic is just as relevant as it was when Charles Schultz first introduced us to this timeless Christmas classic in 1965.

Following “Charlie Brown Christmas” at 9 p.m. on ABC is the “CMA Country Christmas.” This seasonal special features a host of country stars including Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum, and Jake Owen. Also appearing is rocker-gone-country Sheryl Crow, R&B star Mary J. Blige, and contemporary Christian singer Michael W. Smith singing holiday classics and sharing memories.

Never a network to be limited by the dictates of good taste, TLC has proven yet again that there is no low bar when it comes to reality shows. Tonight at 10 p.m. “Best Funeral Ever” premieres at 10 p.m. The first episode features the funeral of a man who loved breakfast so much he ate it three times a day. At his funeral loved ones dress up in bacon and egg costumes to “honor” him.

Now if we can only figure out how to bury TLC shows like “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and “Toddlers & Tiaras” on “Best Funeral Ever,” we may have something worth watching.

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
