Bruce Montgomery recalls tale of how Almighty felt making our town
God was smiling when he made Columbia. Or was he?
Back when I was a kid in Columbia, my family told about a woman--can't think of her name right now--who used to write letters, and pepper her speech--with her saying, "God was smiling when he made Columbia."
After hearing about this wonderful place in such terms for years, an acquaintance of the woman, who lived in Chicago, came to see for himself what the Lord had done. He arrived in Columbia on a Saturday, and landed in one of Columbia's famous traffic jams, and his reaction was "God wasn't just smiling when he made Columbia, he was laughing his head off!"
- BRUCE MONTGOMERY
Ok, he's not his grandfather, the late Adair Couny Judge Bruce Montgomery (1951-1955). But this Bruce now goes by the same name. Many will remember him as "Billy Bruce Montgomery" back when. He is now retired in Richmond, VA, after a career as a higher education professor of music.
