Tally Ho!

The welcome by Palmetto Bluff’s General Manager, Trip Shine, was over. The comments by the Lowcountry Hunt’s Master of Foxhounds (MFH) were finished. The Huntsman raised his horn and blew out notes “the pack” (this day, 25 couples—that’s 50 hounds) understood. The hounds (never, ever…

Buzz Words

At the beginning of the decade, when the focus was on accounting principals and shareholder reports, Wall Street made the phrase “Fuzzy Numbers” famous. As people grew tired of yet another financial scandal and sought out entertainment, the focus turned to athletes, performance enhancing drugs,…

Amos Hummell: Coloring outside the Lines
