Okay . This age thing. I'll be 61 in less than 2 weeks. There. No secret . Lol. born in '52. Lol
But, I'm a feisty 60 right now! Oh, yeah!
I turned 61 in June. We're only about 2 months apart in age. I'm older, but wiser (not). Refuse to be a rocking chair mamaw. Got on my new horse and went for a ride. Not as limber as I used to be. If I ever fall off, it will be 'lights out' for good, but I'd rather do that than complain about my age and related aches and pains.

Good evening. Where is everybody. Every time I stop in, there's no one here, so I end up talking to myself. Come to think of it, I do that anyway.

Marilyn, I hope that you stop by again. I enjoyed your introduction. Just be very careful who you talk to on the computer, and don't give out any personal information, by which someone can track you. Have someone show you how to register for topix, then if you want to send someone a more personal e-mail, you know who you are talking to, and it will not get posted publicly. That will ensure your safety and your privacy.

Hello, good day. The weather is cheering up thankfully. All this talk of music reminds me of a story I have always wanted to share, but too embarrassed to tell anyone I knew. I took my eldest daughter to see Willy Nelson at the fairgrounds. I don't remember what year but some time in the 80's I believe. We could hear him but never actually saw him as our seats were too far away. We ended up having to leave because people all around us were smoking refer. I do believe my daughter and I were high. I remember it stunk so bad I thought to myself how in the world do people smoke that stuff. I did not anticipate that happening but we did giggle all the way home. I have always wanted to share that story. I hope it gives you all a chuckle. I do enjoy my wine, I'm not a prude. My husband enjoyed his beer an awful lot, tho we never got to enjoy the spirits until the children were grown and gone. Then I realized I should have drank some sooner. Tom T Hall was my favorite back in those days. I like a variety of music, from country to classic but not the screaming noise. Have a good evening all.

Hi Marilyn.. Actually, Willie does some classical and some old pop classics as well as country. His "September Song" is a remake of an old Jimmy Durante tune. His "Wllie and Friends" CD is nothing but very soothing classical instrumentals such as "Vous et Mous" and "Over the Waves".

Most of that can be found on Youtube. He started in the music doing Gospel music with his sister Carolyn, who is awesome on the piano. I quite often go to Youtube and listen to him doing "Precious Memories" and "I'll Fly Away". Many people do not know that he wrote Patsy Clines "Crazy". He is most versatile.

I always enjoy "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain." A very humbling song that makes my brown ones tear.
Faire eve' to All. A shot of Gentleman Jack twice mellowed sounds good right now;) Alas, the cupboard is empty.
@ AW thanks, you were right on, Jimmy Dean;)

The one that makes my eyes leak is "Angel Flying too Close to the Ground". It brings back thoughts of the late wife. I got some Red Stagg which is Gentleman Jim with Black Cherry flavoring. But the line that makes me mellow is "Leave me if you need to, I'll still remember.. Angel Flying too Close to the Ground". I better not play that and break out the Red Stagg.

I'm still the mighty sixty ! Lol. It really bothered me before my birthday last year-- it was a BIG one after all-- then I woke up one morning and WHAM ,it came to me: the MIGHTY SIXTY, that's what I am and that's what I've been! Its been a very good year!
In my fantasy world I love riding horses ( I'm envious of you), cooking wonderful dinners, traveling all over the world. Reality is that I watch the horses in my neighbors field, buy cookbooks but eat from drive throughs, and run up and down the road from here to town.
Oh, you can be wiser. Wouldn't take much to be wiser than me... Lol

Is Abeliever still around? Glad to see you're still alive and kicking. LOL. All is well with mama and Leona. My son goes off to the Army on the 11th of August and we have moved to Oklahoma to be closer to my wifes family. One good thing about being a Correctional Officer is you can get work in any state you want. I hope my old friends are still out there. I hope to hear from you guys soon.

I remember, my great granny had an underground cellar for keeping things in chilled during the summer. She'd carry water from a stream to put on the garden and to bathe in. I'll never forget the big, wash tub and the washboard. She never complained. That is remarkable. Too work so hard yet be so content. I could only strive to be half the good woman she was.
Wallpaper for her was newspaper clippings;) Her small kept her content in this life.
My great grandparents were either gone before I was born or passed within a year or so after my birth, so I have no memory of them .
I remember when my grandparents had a bathroom put in the house but for the life of me I could not tell you what they did for baths before then. Oh, the outhouse I plainly remember! Lol
And every room was papered--the ceilings too! Grandma brushed the paste on the wallpaper strips, folding it just so, then she laid the wallpaper over the broom straw, holding the handle and somehow controlling it all, she walked swiftly across the room and, presto, another strip of paper was on the ceiling.

@Marilyn. Lol. That was a good story about your experience at the Willie Nelson concert!! Lol. I enjoy listening to Willie also but have listened to the Eagles a lot lately and plan on listening to some Lynyrd Skynyrd -- they were in concert tonight in evansville indiana..
Whew. I'm ready to hit the hay.. It's much later here in the eastern home zone-- okay, okay, only an hour later than most of you, but I'm whipped out. Have a wonderful night!!

This thread will never die if I have to recruit new members. I depend on seeing certain people post or I worry about them. I am 60 now too.
I used to say I do this, I do that but now there are many things where I say "I used to do that. Like breaking 2 year old Quarter horses for my wifes business. 2 years ago I broke 19, stayed sore from April until August, last year 7 and zero this year. Last year I had a stallion get me 2 far back in the saddle and threw me up in the air about 15'! Even the fresh 8" of sand in the sixty foot round pen didn't help a bit. I got back on of course and finally rode him down. May keep him since he is going to be huge and my 17 hand, 1200 pound gelding is 20 this year. He'll be good another 5 years then I'll let him rest for 10 years or he passes on.
what now

Wow! The animals will be hearing the whole song(s)! Thank you so much all! Also, I will be looking up the other songs and sing them some new tunes. However, they are all christians, thanks to learning mom's songs. Signing top of her lungs any old time all my life. Lol. I checked in here, and it's so chock full of interesting things, that I have not gone to any of the sites yet. Lol It is so late, maybe I get the site to myself Ogala, so don't feel bad. I really love your horse story, now that made me laugh. Hey, I sneak the horse treats of all kinds when noone is looking. He loves pies, cookies, apples, candy bars. I do remember grandma saying, "there is no wall papering, it is too worldly."Hmm, things have changed so much, and it is hard to even recognize boundaries and such. I never thought I would be on a computer. Yes, I remember the outhouse too, still here actually. We used Sears and Roebuck. Why, was there always a big huge spider in the outhouse someplace? We would take the barn lantern, not but to see if the spider is in the way again. Hey, I am not 50 yet, so yes Ancient Wolf you have a lot of knowledge and done living I haven't even heard of. I hope you get to pass it on down.
