Dixie Divas: The useless opinions of others

One day at lunch, I ran into a beautiful older woman, a friend from years past, whom I hadn't seen in quite a while. She had changed very little since I first met her when I was in college.

Dixie Divas: Scotch-Irish forever set in their ways

A couple of years ago, when I deemed it absolutely necessary to cross the big pond and investigate my heritage that had been seeded in Northern Ireland, I had the good fortune of being introduced to a renowned historian who, through greater good fortune, has become a friend.

Dixie Divas: Knowing better

When Nix, the unpredictable, funniest kid in our family, was 4 years old, he found himself in some bit of trouble, though we've now all forgotten what it was. Only the punch line lingers in our minds.

Dixie Divas: 'I’m in A Hurry' inspired by The Intimidator

Several years ago, I was in Talladega for the NASCAR race and had stopped by the No. 3 truck to see Richard Childress and Dale Earnhardt. Earnhardt, as usual, was picking and poking at me over one thing or the other.

Dixie Divas: Keep the mail comin'

We all need to be worried about the health of the postal service and, as good neighbors, we all need to pitch in and do what we can to keep the mail comin'.

Dixie Divas: Some big news from Dixie Dew

It's me. Dixie Dew, again. Y'all who read this column regularly know that I am Ronda's adorable and svelte (though she writes differently) dachshund. This is the third time I've guest-written this column, but since it's Mother's Day, I'm giving her the day off. This is my gift to Mama. She's been working on a tight deadline for a new book so she's earned a rest.

Dixie Divas: The glamour of grammar, Southern-style

Someone wrote to complain about my grammar. This isn't new, though it doesn't particularly irritate me. This gentleman was especially kind in his admonishments, noting first and foremost how much he enjoys my writings.

Dixie Divas: An obituary artist

A friend of mine, who has a penchant for sending along lovely, thoughtful gifts, outdid himself a while back. The contents of the package quickly became one of my favorite gifts ever.

Dixie Divas: Getting through by helping others

It's just funny, I guess, the way I get caught up in the lives of other people, folks I don't even know.

Dixie Divas: King James and Will

Perhaps you've heard. It's been the source of newspaper, magazine and television stories as they all pay tribute to the anniversary of the King James Bible. It's a sprightly 400 years old.

Dixie Divas: ‘Smiley Cake’ was an Easter tradition

It started with Mama. All good stories and jokes in our family, including me, started with her.

Dixie Divas: Empty house tells of a family's sadness

For a long time, I've driven past that house and thought how happy it looked. Isn't it funny how you can look at a house and know that laughter rings within its walls?

Dixie Divas: Marrying a mean woman

Now, we all knew that wasn't going to work. Not for one cotton-picking minute did we think that those two could say "I do" and keep that vow until one of 'em stopped breathing.

Dixie Divas: Washing up the dishes

A friend, en route from Charlotte to Atlanta, stopped to spend the night with me. I knew she needed more than a comfortable bed. She needed a hot meal. That's Southern hospitality as we've been taught to practice it - the comforts of our home shared with a friend.
