I have not looked yet, but I bet it is "I was born one morning and the sun didn't shine, picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine, loaded 16 tone of number nine coal and the straw boss said well bless my soul"

You load 16 tons and what do you get? another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter don't you call me cause I can't go, I owe my soul to the company store".. I believe Tenn. Ernie Ford. Since it is youtube, I will look and see if I am right.

Hello everyone. Loved reading about the old stories. I learn something every time that I stop in here.@Marilyn: Glad that you have joined in and are sharing your memories. Welcome to the Bird Thread.
@ AW: I really enjoy your immense fund of knowledge, laced with dry humor.
@ Imposter: Hope that you continue to do well.
Keep the stories coming. I find you all most interesting. Beautiful day today. We all need to appreciate the small things in life, especially since we're all here for such a short period of time, in the grand scheme of things.

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.

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.
