About E.J. Smith
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoA bona fide country girl, a hillbilly diva, E.J. Smith always comes back to her beautiful East Tennessee mountains and now she's here to stay. The woods are her favorite place: walking dirt roads or woodland trails to see what God has done. Searching out and watching wildflowers, some rare, all amazing!
The love of my life is my daughter. She came to me when she was two and I was thirty-seven; best move of my life and she will always be the cherry on my sundae!
E.J. lives with her man and the cutest mini schnauser
who ever lived. Keeps us young!
The most important person in my life was my uncle, who died In November, 2010. Died? Actually, he went Home, a goal he had worked on for most of his life.
You will meet him in her poems and stories.
Like you, E.J. has her share of troubles, but has learned not to "sweat the small stuff" and Life is Good!

Granny cut off our credit at the store.

You were going to school

So we thought you could do anything.

We'll write a note, we decided

Joe can write.

We devised a long list.

Sam, four, said "Don't forget to

sign Bert's name."

So you did we thought.

Mrs. Lamb, the storekeeper, never let on.

Adjusting her glasses, she read that list

As though it were real writing:

"Does this say three Coca-Colas?

My eyes aren't too good."

Yes, we would answer until our shopping was done.

Of course, she called Granny

Our sins always found us out!

    As kids, we had our moments. You're able to paint a picture of those times in your poetry. My Dad would send us for a quart of beer and we'd get two and hide one or two until Friday night. Then Pat said to my Dad, Geez you're drinking a lot lately, two quarts at a time. BUSTED! Those were the days. Vince
