So they asked Will Rogers why presidents of the most powerful nation in world would invite him back inauguration after inauguration to make fun of them with clever sarcastic humor. ” They’re big people,” he said. Robert Cooper Davis was big people my friend.

After my mother’s divorce she and her 5 boys “showed up” on her mother’s steps in LaGrange, Georgia circa 1968. In the summer the customary thing to do was to sit on the porch and have an ice cold small bottled Coke from Davis Pharmacy over ice sitting on the porch at 103 North Lewis Street.
