What Are Tales From Tibby?
During my 41-year career doing morning show radio, what I found most rewarding was taking the slices of life I observed and making them into fun, funny or satirical stories that, hopefully, the audience would enjoy.
That usually involved altering, embellishing or flat-out lying about an actual incident, but I got pretty good at it.
When the time came to back away from the microphone, I realized that I still tend to see life as a morning show host. My brain still processes everything as a possible story to tell on the air.
So this blog is a written extension of my radio show, a series of true or semi-true stories that could just as easily be called, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO ALLEN.
Born and raised and still living in Georgia, my stories often have a Southern slant. I offer no apologies for that. I know how to properly prepare grits and cannot imagine life without them. I can also fry up a rabbit.
While I cannot avoid a little commentary now and then, the aim is to entertain, and I hope you enjoy reading these Tales From Tibby.
