I'm in training and just need to raise $275 more for my Trek Across Maine! I'm riding for my momma's daddy who died of lung cancer when she was just 27. If just 27 of y'all have $10, that would get it. Please would you consider giving? Direct link in bio. Much obliged.

The news of Gregg Allman passing is a bummer. One of my favorite high school memories was driving between Atlanta and Nashville for a Phish / Allman Brothers / Phish July 4th concert weekend extravaganza. Keep Rambling, Gregg.

Those summers were magic. Days spent hunting honeysuckle. Dusk setting in late. The sun was out until well past normal bedtime, but as it set, the sky would begin to glow. Alive, pulsing. The orbs flashing as lighthouses for young boys and girls, beckoning them out into the yards and into the trees and off of porches and out of beds. To capture them was to bottle the night. After we'd placed them on the dresser, jars full of 'em, we crawled into bed and had light that led us into dreams. Our Summer, In Picture print is back in stock just in time for Memorial Day.

We've got a new one up for presale. She's called Nashville Ice and would look smashing in your Nashville pad.

Folks have been asking for a Citadel print for years. So we finally got around to drawing one up. We're trying something new. Instead of printing up things that we think are good looking, we'll let you decide if they are. We're listing this print as an On Deck presale. Once we can get 15 ordered, we'll print them up. And for partnering up with us and helping us keep our costs in check, we'll give you 20% off. So tell your friends and spread the word. The quicker we get to 15, the quicker you can get this beauty on your wall. At any point that you get tired of waiting, let us know, and we’ll refund your money. Deal?

See child? From the top of this ferris wheel you can see Boston. And down below you can see you mother and baby brother. We are the luckiest, are we not?

On the Ole Miss campus, the speed limit is 18 mph. That's in honor of one of the elder statesman of Rebel football, Archie Manning. Fortunately they didn't lower it to 10 when Eli graduated, because even though things move slow in the South, ten on the speedometer is just ridiculous. We're trying something new. Instead of printing up things that we think are good looking, we'll let you decide if they are. We're listing this print as a presale. Once we can get 15 ordered, we'll print them up. We've got 2 ordered of this one already, so we're 13% of the way there. And for partnering up with us and helping us keep our costs in check, we'll give you 20% off.

I'd never really thought about how much you go around the horn to spell Alabama until I drew up this print. All points lead back to the A it seems. At any rate, with this print, we're trying something new. Instead of printing up things that we think are good looking, we'll let you decide if they are. We're listing this print as a presale. Once we can get 15 ordered, we'll print them up. (We've got 2 ordered already.) And for partnering up with us and helping us keep our costs in check, we'll give you 20% off. So tell your friends and spread the word. The quicker we get to 15, the quicker you can get this beauty on your wall.

I'm saddened to hear of the passing of an old friend of mine, Ritchie Miller, from Mississippi. He was truly one of the good ones. Until we meet again, brother. πŸ“·@bethmorganphotography

Hellfire and brimstone might work for some, but the Gospel of Grace is what I think draws heathens near. I was in New Orleans with a friend, chatting into the sunrise on a Sunday morning. As we left the bar and passed churchgoers, smelling of booze and the night, I asked my friend if we should feel ashamed. “No sir,” he replied. “Jesus loves me, and I love me some Jesus.” Back in stock.

This Father’s Day, I’m riding 180 miles across Maine with the American Lung Association's Trek Across Maine in honor of my mom’s father. J.V. (his given name) was a company man. Working in a factory in Eastern Arkansas his whole life, for long hours, in support of his family. The cramped, poorly ventilated spaces eventually got to him, and he developed mesothelioma which ended up being the thing that sent him home. I’m going to be riding in the clean Maine air, to raise funds for the ALA’s mission to improve the air that we all breathe, and thereby lessening the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families. Because my momma deserved to have her daddy. And I want to make sure my daughter does, too. Half the proceeds of this print (Dirigio: the Maine State motto meaning I Lead) will go to my fundraising. If you don’t want to buy a would you mind donating a few bucks anyways? Every bit helps. Link in bio.

You've got six days to get something for Y'mom'n'em. We've got about 20 of these left.
