Growing up in the South

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia the same year the UFO’s crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. My father was a career military intelligence officer who eventually became involved in the Air Force’s Project Bluebook. We moved from base-to-base. When he left the country on temporary duty assignments we lived with my grandmother in what we called ‘the big house.’ When we vacationed or holidays we spent time with relatives in rural parts of Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee. The people I met and the stories they told are some of my most powerful memories.
