If y'all don't have the pleasure of calling Jackie K. Cooper your friend, well then folks, y'all are missing out! He's the guru of movie reviews, a famed author and a family friend. Yet...
Jackie is not only a family friend (he and Granddaddy are in the same
lunch bunch... along with a lawyer and a judge so their group sounds
like a joke of them all in a rowboat going somewhere.) Anyways... Moving
forward, Jackie is also my friend.
I count folks like JKC as quite special friends, since they are not only
friends with the generations before me, but also friends with me. As a
youngen', it makes you feel special when your grandparents' friends
befriend you. Multigenerational friends I think are the very fabric that
make Southern society so delightful and integral to our heritage. Thank
you JKC for being MY friend... And Grandaddy's too!
Here's an interview Jackie conducted with me at my shop and office on
Carro Street, downtown Perrydise. Thank you Jackie for this fun time
together, and I'm looking forward to our next chat. I'm sure it'll
involve lunch somewhere good!
