Momma wants to talk ‘bout tinklin’ wind chimes, hardware, spa tans, Pandora and sunflowers! Let’s stop dilly dallyin’ and let’s get to it y’all!
Chime in! Joy and Joe Houston, owners of Creative Mark located at 165 South Main Street in downtown Madison, wanted me let y’all know that they have changed their wind chime brand! Their previous brand shifted its production offshore and eventually ceased production. See what happens when you move jobs overseas? Well! The new brand is called Weatherland Windchimes and they are made right smack here in the USA! Plus they are individually hand-tuned to clear, classical notes and have a wide range of sizes! Y’all need to buy you a new wind chime to make your garden sing!
Stop the presses! Madison Mayor and owner of Madison Hardware Bruce Gilbert says y’all need to MARK YOUR CALENDARS ‘cause he’s fixin’ to start his closin’ SALE!
I’m talkin’ after 50 years of operation in Madison, Madison Hardware, located at 174 West Washington Street, is gonna host the SALE OF THE CENTURY! Check out the ad in this week’s paper y’all! Bruce says the prices are gonna be marked, LOW, LOWER and LOWEST ‘cause EVERYTHING MUST GO! Now I was just smack in there the other day and have spotted several items that I’m gonna slap pick up at a BARGAIN when the BIG SALE starts on June 28 at 8 a.m. SHARP! If you sleep in, honey, you’re gonna miss it! Oh and Bruce is gonna close the hardware store from Monday, June 25 ‘til Wednesday June 27 to get everything ready! I’ll see you there!
Mercy! Momma’s just a dancin’ all over the front porch payin’ no mind to nobody and lookin’ like a fool! Momma! Momma! Get those dad-blasted earphones out your ears! Ding dang! Give me those earphones! Oh. My. Ever. Livin’! Gosh! Y’all! Momma’s listenin’ to world famous, award winnin’ Bobby Rush! He’s the hottest blues performer EVER! I’m talkin’ hit after hit since 1968 and he’s traveled the entire world! Hits like Chicken Head! One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show! And everybody’s favorite – Hen Pecked! Sing it Bobby! “I’m not hen pecked . . . just got pecked by the right hen!” Lord have MERCY! WHAT! HOLD THE PRESSES! Y’all! Bobby’s comin’ to Madison at the King Communication Group’s and Main Street Madison Georgia’s First Peach State Blues Festival at Town Park on Saturday, June 2 from noon ‘til 10 p.m.! OK so this thing is gonna be big and it’s gonna draw in loads of people! Get ready y’all! Not only is famous blues singer Bobby Rush headlinin’, but the line-up also includes Claudette King (daughter of B.B. King), Willie Hill, Bobbye (Doll) Johnson, Cantwise and Freedom, Cruisers, Lady D and the Set It Off Band. Tickets are $25 in advance or $40 the day of the show!

It’s hot y’all! I’m talkin’ July Hot! I sure flat wish I had me a nice ice cold cocktail! Tinkling . . . Tinkling . . . Tinkling . . . Who? What? When? Where? POOF! Who in the Tarnation are you? Ding dang! I didn’t know there was such a thing as the Margarita Fairy! Well I Suwannee! It’s delicious! Love, love, love this Magic Margarita! Thanks Margarita Fairy! Now just leave that frosty pitcher right there so I can share this with Momma! Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!
Spring Scandals! I don’t know how in Tarnation it happened but y’all Momma is The. Talk. Of. The. Town! I’m talkin’ the queen gossip subject! It’s so bad The Biz Buzz has had to come out of retirement to set the record straight! That’s right y’all! So here’s the whole story and nothin’ but! So first up is the rumor that Momma went out, sold the farm and is now the top bidder for Reynolds Plantation and all the ding dang golf courses, marinas and thousands of acres! Ain’t true, ain’t true, ain’t true! The top bidder is in fact the Birmingham, Ala.-based Daniel Corp.!
Ding Dang! Another falsehood on the street is that Momma was in the kitchen the night the fire broke out at Tequila Express! Preposterous! It flat ain’t true! But the true and good news is that owner Ricardo Casillas is re-openin’ Tequila Express located at 270 West Washington St. in Madison on May 3! Yay! Just smack in time for Cinco de Mayo! Check it out y’all!
