July 27, I had the opportunity to sing for the USAGEM “God and Country Jubilee!” in Nashville, TN. Sandi Kay joined me on a couple of tunes. Rev. Harry and Joanne Cash Yates, Tank Tackett and Dottie Snow Tubb and many other artists were present.
Rosie had to stay with her sitter a few weeks ago. We received a photo of her in their swimming pool. Now she runs to their house whenever she can sneak out the door.
We have been to Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama and are headed back to these states soon. My 82 year old dad, who has a bad heart, had emergency bladder surgery in Indiana two weeks ago. He is now in rehab until he gets stronger. Please keep him in your prayers.
We just spent the weekend in a cabin at Elizabethtown Crossroads Campground. Keith and Carol Nichols, the proprietors, are great and I also sang there Saturday evening. “Don’t worry,” Rick could still use his blow dryer, but those walks to the bathroom in the middle of the night were a challenge.
We are again invited to stay at The Cedars Plantation B&B in Munford, AL. It is beautiful and is ran by a great couple, Cindy and Greg Horton. Sit on a porch and Smoky (the cat) might greet you.
I’ve been busy writing new songs. I can’t wait for you to hear them.
A LITTLE HUMOR:
The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought. "How could you do this!" he exclaimed. "I don't know," she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the dress on sale. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.'" "Well," the pastor persisted, "You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, "Get behind me, Satan!" "I did," replied his wife, "but then he said "It looks great from back here, too."
love to all,
