Sun Columnist makes another trip around
By Andrew Harris, pictured is the Wiser Family a few years ago
In case you haven’t noticed, Chuck Wiser is a true original, about as authentic as they get. Whether you enjoy his weekly columns which “wramble” on about a “wrandom” topics, or not, you still have to marvel at this prolific fellow.
Besides being an writer, Wiser qualifies for many designations, some of which I have listed below. At the top of the list are his greatest titles, which tell you the most important thing about Chuck: He is a dedicated family man. After over fifty years of marriage, he worships the ground his wife walks on, and often he must tip-toe on said ground to keep himself out of trouble. Chuck beams about his kids, with such pride that it often turns into a poem. I don’t think he has forgotten a moment of their lives. As a grandfather, that same swelling pride is something he wears on his sleeve, as grateful as possible for them all.
While that might be a large part of the persona of Chuck Wiser, this list gives you an idea just how complex of a guy he is:
Husband, Father, Grandfather
Son, Brother, Uncle
Friend, Musician, Poet, Nature lover
Teacher, Professor, Reader, Writer
Veteran, Mentor, Historian
Golfer, Hunter, Birdwatcher
Trickster, Jokester, Wrambler….
And don’t forget Columnist!!
Happy Birthday Wiser, I believe I speak for all of your readers with that wish! Thank you for making the Sun a much more interesting part of our universe!!
Here are a few of Chuck’s “Wramblings” from the archives in case you missed them:
