                            HON. TOM GRAVES

                               of georgia

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 26, 2013

  Mr. GRAVES of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to celebrate a great 
American, a dedicated small business owner in the North Georgia town of 
Ellijay. Who is often spotted with a yellow suit, an American flag tie, 
and tophat.
  He is a true advocate for low taxes and less government, and is 
always sure to voice his opinions about candidates for political 
office.
  Col. Poole and his lovely wife Edna founded Poole's Bar-B-Q . . . 
known in some circles as the ``TAJ-MA-HOG''. . . which rests in the 
shadow of the ``Pig-Hill-of-Fame'' adorned with plywood cutout hogs 
with patron's names painted on them.
  In order to qualify for a pig on the hill, he has stated that all you 
need is, ``an honest face, good intentions, and five dollars.''
  Next Monday, April 29, this fine patriot will turn 83 years old--so 
today I wanted to take a minute to say--``Oscar, from all the way in 
Washington, DC--I want to wish you a very happy birthday!''
