You don’t hafta call me darlin’ …

In June of 1975, “outlaw” country music singer, David Allan Coe, released what was to be his first Top Ten Country Hit. You Never Even Called Me by My Name is the PERFECT country song!!! Because…. it includes the following essential country song ingredients –  mama, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting drunk. The last verse goes like this:

I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick’er up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got runned over by a damned ol’ train

So…as a  17-year-old aspiring musician, I had to admit to myself that I had to find another career since I could never improve on this song {sigh}.

So, 42 years later I am a novice blogger. And just this morning I read a blog posting by someone I follow, Dan Antion. And dang-nabit!!! This has got to be the PERFECT blog posting! Read it and weep! (I did/am).

No Facilities blog

Dan has included animals (dog, cat, black squirrels), bugs (bumblebee), seasonal photos (autumn leaves), travel related pic (airport self-moving sidewalk), and something to make a retired cop’s day, a photo of Dunkin’ Donuts!!! Also, shopping, sports, chocolate, and a $2-off coupon.  I guess it is time for me to stop blogging and find something ELSE to help me waste time…

Thanks Dan!!!
