Red Ear Syndrome: Chad Suffers from Rare and Weird Symptoms

Well, apparently I have inherited some weird and random syndrome from my grandmother.  And I'm finally breaking the silence (lol).  The other night, after Brett and I returned from WBKR Night at the Opry, I looked into the bathroom mirror and noticed that my right ear was glowing like Rudolph's nose.  I mean, literally!  It was bright candy apple red.  It was burning hot.  And it looked like it had been burned with a hair dryer.  And, though it's happened before, it completely freaked me out.  So, what is this bizarre affliction?  How is it that my right ear can catch fire and my left ear looks perfectly normal?  I did a little research into Red Ear Syndrome.  And, yes!  It's real.

Funeral Services for Hal Miller Today at First Baptist Church

Owensboro icon Hal Miller is being laid to rest today.  Services begin at 11am this morning at First Baptist Church in downtown Owensboro.  And if yesterday's visitation at Glenn Funeral Home is any indication, folks will be lining up in droves to pay their respects to and honor a man who, in many ways, touched us all.  As I was visiting with Hal's daughters Rooster and Karen yesterday,  it occurred to me just how many memories of Windy Hollow I personally carry.  And I know that many of you have memories that are just as fond. I want to share a few of mine.
