want to say, "Hay," to all the people from across the country
new to this email list. Hay! And Hay to all the old familiars. We're
back, did you miss us?
We had a great time visiting new friends in Louisville, KY, Columbus,
and even Nashville, TN where Mama stepped up to do a karaoke spot in
Printer's Alley! That was the most nervous Mama's been to perform in a
time. The bar was packed full of drunken cowfolk, bubbas and European
tourists. But she sang David Allen Coe's "You Never Even Call Me By My
Name" to a standing ovation and high-fives as she left the stage. Good
When we drove north on Saturday we had to turn our clocks ahead one
the Central/Eastern time zone difference. Then on Sunday the dang time
turned back again! It was kinda confusing, because when Mama would ask
what time it was, I wasn't sure how many times to stamp my hoof! I
ultimately decided it was always four o'clock.
Ok, I'm a pony!
