‘So This Is Life’

There are certain friends you meet and know early on that you can totally be yourself.

Courtney Patton is one of those friends.

We are very candid, uncensored and borderline inappropriate when together.

There are always lots of laughs, yet always deep conversations.

Other than being my friend, she also happens to be an amazing singer/songwriter.

The day the hearse was ‘stolen’ in Granbury

June 6, 2015

The water of 38 years has flowed under the bridge since I “stole” a hearse. Surely the statute of limitations has kicked in by now, thus this confession.

I am NOT, however, admitting guilt. Instead, I was the “victim” of yet another Groner Pitts prank.

Friends who knew this merriest of morticians – who reigned in Brownwood for a half-century – also were “victimized” from time to time.

Might as well enjoy the rain
