To Go Cup.


Whitt's Barbecue turns fifty this year.

I never knew Floyd, the founder, but I knew his grandson. Met him in sixth grade. We became fast friends and then bandmates and then roommates and then Best Men. I met the rest of the clan over time. Shared laughs and tears and babies and funerals and vacation houses and I get cards on birthdays and anniversaries and they're the best damn bunch of folks a fellow could know. And they make a fine, fine hickory-smoked barbecue dinner.

I'm honored to offer this print. 




Fort Moultrie Timber.



There's a lot to say about Moultrie.

We could go on about how we defeated the British cause of how hard us Americans wanted it or how freedom was destined to win or how those South Carolinans are a tough as nails bunch. But what we really want to say is that we got a letter from a fellow named F.K. telling us we should look at the Moultrie flag. Which we did. And we liked it. So we went with a little more modern version (love the old one, too) and built it and we thank you S. Carolinians for fighting with all your hearts.

Snag one here.




Splash Decks.


Private beach, or, vacation after Labor Day.

Gene Wilder.


Mr. Wilder's Wonka was one of those characters that made a poor kid from Alabama think anything is possible. Turns out, it is. So long, Gene.
