Sunday Afternoon Cigar

Smoking a Rocky Patel Edge out by the firepit.

It was sunny and warm, so instead of wearing Glorious Hat today, I chose to wear my Intellectual Froglegs hat.

A little trivia for you.  Froglegs University is the only American university where:
The students don't feel entitled to other peoples' money.
Nobody feels the victim.
Not a single Marxist professor is employed.
The Second Amendment is celebrated every day.

I started reading Jack Hinson's One-Man War, by Tom McKenney.  Amazon:
The true story of one man's reluctant but relentless war against the invaders of his country.  A quiet, wealthy plantation owner, Jack Hinson watched the start of the Civil War with disinterest. Opposed to secession and a friend to Union and Confederate commanders alike, he did not want a war. After Union soldiers seized and murdered his sons, placing their decapitated heads on the gateposts of his estate, Hinson could remain indifferent no longer. He commissioned a special rifle for long-range accuracy, he took to the woods, and he set out for revenge. This remarkable biography presents the story of Jack Hinson, a lone Confederate sniper who, at the age of 57, waged a personal war on Grant's army and navy. The result of 15 years of scholarship, this meticulously researched and beautifully written work is the only account of Hinson's life ever recorded and involves an unbelievable cast of characters, including the Earp brothers, Jesse James, and Nathan Bedford Forrest.
 The Hinson story and Froglegs University are both located in Tennessee.  Coincidence?
