My uncle Johnny would say to me on more than one occasion when I was young, “Sammy or Webb, stay sober and keep the faith.” I think he had heard through one or more of the grapevines that tie together extended families and small towns that my youthful escapades were a bit outside the bounds of what was considered proper and acceptable behavior for a teenage (Catholic) boy. I always acknowledged what he said and loved him for giving me his advice. But then I promptly ignored it, both then and to this day. No regrets! We have to make the journey fun as well as noble.
