You just never know what we're going to see outside our window here at Taste of Country Nights. Last Friday there was an early Cinco De Mayo celebration going on, and I just couldn't help myself -- I got out the bullhorn!
Like a lot of you, I sat home today crying at the TV as we said goodbye to George Jones. What a beautiful tribute it was seeing Alan Jackson's tearful version of 'He Stopped Loving Her Today.' I wish country music was still in those good old days.
What a beautiful little Texas town, but such an enormous tragedy that happened. This weekend on my way back to Dallas from San Antonio, I stopped by the town of West, Texas to pay my respects -- and, I guess, to satisfy that curiosity bug I had about what everything looks like.
Cue the Dixie horn, baby! I am a child of the '80s, so like many others, I grew up with the Duke boys, Bo and Luke. But I'm not sure other people who watched 'The Dukes of Hazzard' are as obsessed with the star of the show as I am.
Hey blog buddies! TGIF! Meet my grandmother. I sure do love this lady! She is very special to me, and I was glad to be able to take her to lunch and enjoy her company. Isn't family wonderful? Remember my recent blog about my mamaw? This is my mamaw's daughter...
Okay, I'm in two minds about my blog today. On the one hand, I am so excited about summer and swimming, etc. -- but the other side of it is, I'm bothered by it, because there are so many activities outdoors, and I hate the heat!
I'm sitting here watching the coverage of the Boston Marathon explosions with such a heavy heart. It seems it's almost the norm now when you turn on the TV -- we see so many people hurt, killed or shocked by these terrorizing acts.
