“How’s Your Conduct?”

Colonel's Words of Wisdom

Video Transcript

Colonel: “When I was a kid growing up in the country, in a small town, a lot of the older men, when they’d meet a boy, I guess rather than saying, well you know ‘How are you doin’?’ or ‘How are you feelin’?’ or something like that, they’d say, ‘How’s your conduct, son?’ And that just seemed to be something that was kind of a country expression I used to hear. I had kind of forgotten about it, until here in Lynnville one day on the street, a gentleman came by and he said, ‘Colonel, how’s your conduct?’ And it just hit me all over again, and I thought, what a great comment, you know? What a great question that is, or a greeting when you meet somebody. The governor was down here a while back. When I walked out to meet him, the first thing I said to him, I said, ‘Governor, how’s your conduct?’ He said, ‘Well, I guess it’s pretty good, you know?’ I said, ‘”Stellar” is the answer, Governor, gotta say “Stellar!”‘ So that’s kinda neat. So it’s kinda . . . I guess everybody that sees me now, they say ‘Stellar’ or ‘How’s your conduct?’ so it’s kinda become part of what we do.”
