Yup I have been way to negiligent in carrying out my Friday tributes to my favorite bloggers. This Fridays Following in the FootSteps post is about Harper Faulkner. Now just think for a minute about his name. HF actually did a blurb on his name (darned if I can find it now although I have looked) and how he got it laced with his usual dose of humor….which reminds me where did he get all that gut busting rolling on the floor with just a word or two humor? But lets revisit the name thing.
So a wee darling baby boy is born. His folks gaze upon that angelic face and decide he deserves a moniker bigger than he is. I suspect they suspected that he would grow into it and by all that is holy he did. Did he ever carry on relentlessly as a child forcing his mother to say, ‘Now Harper quit harping you are driving me crazy.’ To which I can imagine him saying, ‘I have to harp you named me and now you and the rest of the world must live with it.”
And live with it we do with great relish and delight over virtually everything that comes out of this man. I have tried to choose a favorite for you to read (in case he is a stranger to you this moment) but damn as soon as I read something and pick myself up off the floor thinking it is the best I get all caught up in another post that I am sure is my fave.
Now more than just I like to harp on Harper. In March of this year Mike Silvia dedicated a post to good old HF.The man gets noticed. I am still not sure if Mike’s post is for or against but one thing is certain; there is no way anyone will be mediocre about HF. By all accounts he adores his wife and family including the long gone Cousin Buster or at least he remembers him, sort of. His worth it seems is in his fertile creatuve mind – man of mystery (Clive) and his height. Give yourselves a wonderful gift all wrapped up in wit and intelligence and pop over to say hello. Just hello, now I wouldn’t you all to start harping about this genius. That’s his job after all!Love you HF!!
