Lewis Grizzard was a southern humorist who wrote books & newspaper columns. He loved the south & all her charm.His book titles were award winning in & of themselves. They include:

Elvis Is Dead & I Don't Feel So Good Myself
If Love Were Oil I'd Be A Quart Low
Shoot Low Boys They're Riding Shetland Ponies
Don't Squat In The Garden Granny Cause Them Taters Got Eyes

Here are some of my favorite Lewis Grizzard quotes:

I came from a big family. In fact, I never got to sleep alone until I was married.

Life is like a dogsled race. If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.

There is no such think as being too Southern.

I had the honor of introducing Lewis Grizzard on stage in Tuscaloosa many years ago. I miss his southern humor. I even forgive him for being a Georgia Bulldogs fan.
