Larry Walker is a native of the gnat line, (a distinctive area of Georgia), having lived in Perry, Georgia all of his life. As they say in the country, Larry Walker is “an old coon in the barn.” He started practicing law in 1965 and hasn’t slowed up since. He was even a judge, Perry Municipal Court, when he was 23 years old. He served 32 years in the legislature, 2 ½ years on the Georgia Department of Transportation Board and is presently a member of the Board of Regents. He knows lots of people and lots of stuff. He gets the job done. There are good lawyers everywhere. Even a few great ones. There are not many great ones who are as well connected as Larry Walker. Larry writes a weekly column for the Houston (GA) Home Journal and is the author of Life on the Gnat Line, a composition of Larry’s widely read columns on family, everything Southern, reading, politics, and of course, folks. Larry paints a picture about life with wit and humor, curious findings, folklore and constant reminders about the value of relationships. You can enjoy Larry’s columns and other writings on this blog.
