Same goes for Jan Howard! She came to an assembly at fair view school with her sister because she finally came to town to see her sister. I recognized her told a bunch of kids she was an old country singer, we ran up asking for an autograph she got all hateful told us to get away she didn't have time for nonsense. I'll never forget that!
I guess they both are from this area because this is the way most around here act, Hateful. It must be something in the water.

Just because a person is a country music star doesn't mean there not an as*hole. If they weren't a star they'd still be an as*hole.

She was rude and an ass to a bunch of KIDS asking for an autograph. Funny thing is for some reason she friended me on Facebook. Was I an ass or rude to her when I unexpectedly got the request,,No. Did I say hey do you remember???? No. It seems most of her admirers are from over seas.

Bite me. You kids stepped on my toe running up on me like that! Had I not been at a school with a bunch of tiny witnesses, I'd have laid a beat down on all of you.

Don't tell me, India the facebook herd. I accepted a freind request from a person from India one time and had 150 facebook freinds at the time, 24 hours later had 15,000 facebook freinds all related to this guru from India. After seeing my timeline page never stop moving like a hampster wheel from all the post every 2 seconds, I posted a update to my home page leave a comment section, I posted I was eating a hamburger and within 10 minutes my freinds list was back to 150. The way I like it.

Are you writing a book,or did you know him? What is the great interest you seem to have? I had a great uncle who said when Porter
Left town,he left owing my uncle 42 cents for gas that he had borrowed from my uncle to get to willow springs to sing. Lol. True story
I'm just a big fan of his. I think he was one of the greats and has never really received the accolades he deserves.

Saw the West Plains forum and just decided to see what I could find out about his life there.

<quoted text>I didn't say a while as something bad, I knew the show was on for a while but now I know how many yrs and how many episodes. You can tell what you know as facts without a question sounding all drama filled. So now share how many songs he mentioned West Plains in? How many times did he come back to West Plains for a visit? and did he ever try and pay back the other posters great uncle the 42 cents the guy gave him for gas to get to a willow springs show?
He was narcissistic. And left here saying good ridddance. He hated this place even though WP was his home ans his sisters. They didn't claim him really. He was a snob.he came back when he was old and done in. He died not too many years after that. I definanatly didn't go see him. I had enough of his show when I was a kid.
