Wow. Who remembers this song? OK, someone who listened to country music in the early 90's. Sure. It's so, so, so Romantic. And romantic, too. Ew. The things we think when we're engaged and still LARVA! Also Wynonna Judd still rocks.

Billy was a small town loner
Who never did dream
Of ever leaving southern Arizona
Or ever hearing wedding bells ring
He never had a lot of luck with the ladies
But he sure had a lot of good working skills
Never cared about climbing any ladder
He knew the way in a small cafe, found the will

He met Miss Bonnie
And a little bit of her was a little too much
A few movies and a few months latter
The feeling got strong enough
They didn’t own a car
So it must have been love
That drove him uptown for a diamond
That’s when he started goin’?


Over the line
Working overtime
To give her things just to hear her say she don’t deserve them
But he loves her and he just kept goin’ overboard
Over the limit to afford to give her things he knew she wanted
cause without her where would he be?
See, its not for him
She is his only need

Ring on her finger and one on the ladder
A new promotion every now and then
Bonnie worked until she couldn’t tie her apron
Then stayed at home and had the first of two children
And my, how the time did fly
The babies grew up and moved away
Left ‘em sitting on the front porch rocking
And Billy watching Bonnie’s hair turn gray

And every once in a while you could see him get up
And he’d head downtown
cause he heard about something she wanted
And it just had to be found
Didn’t matter how simple or how much
It was love
And, boy, ain’t that love just something
When its strong enough to keep a man goin’?

Happy Dan Mann's Birthday

My VBF and I have not always called our friend Dan on his veryown birthday; however, we do call one another. We met Dan when he was our youth pastor about 100 years ago. We were 14, he was 28 (good.grief.) and we thought he was just about the funniest thing we had ever seen, like, ever. He's still damned hilarious.

This entry was just for me. And Beth.

Love ya!

Excellent point, Mr. Bono.

"The Left mocks the Right. The Right knows it's right. Two ugly traits. How far should we go to try to understand each other's point of view? Maybe the distance grace covered on the cross is a clue."

Bono, lead singer of U2

Possible reasons I may not be doing as well at work as we'd once hoped:

A.) Information revealed in the chart below.
B.) The fact that I created this during work hours.

My own personal variety of the material found on Overheard:

[Driving down the highway. Passing a sign for Osceola, MO.]

Jenny: Oh, look, it's Osceola!

Stacey: Isn't that an animal?

Jenny [snorting]: No, that's an oscelot.

This "parenthood" thing is treacherous.

And we don't even have a child! We have a DOG, people. A little puppy. Who got the parvo virus. Who had to go to the doggie hospital for two days. Who thankfully recovered. Who then ate some wood. And some fringe. And started thowing up again. Who thankfully recovered. Who is at home sleeping in his little crate with his head on his stuffed animal friend Melvin.

My parents say this is why the Lord makes the babies and the puppies so adorable. Because we would send them back if they weren't.
