I guess everybody from Lefty Frizzell to Hank Snow put that song out. But the original, Lefty's, is my #1! It just sounds........spooky! Wish I had a nickel for everytime I sang that song out somewhere. I don't know what it is, ya all, but I can't, or at least, I won't turn the older music loose. I've spent many, many night/morning hours scanning for "old" R&R, gospel and country songs and adding them to the Favorites column on this lap computer. I've got somewhere between 3 and 4 thousand stored on here now and somehow I want to transfer them to CD's or (??) cassette tapes. They're no good to me unless I carry a computer around everywhere.....NOT. The Belle says I've got this thing over-loaded!
@ Anne......I didn't know of the VHS. Is it just 2 1/2 minutes like the song or an actual, full length movie..........comedy?
Its an actual full movie about a boy helping his grandfather paint the grandfathers apartment. For entertainment, grandfather brings out old records with purple people eater being one of them. As the record plays things start happening.... Cute little movie.
3000-4000 songs? Wow. Impressive. The Belle is right---you're on overload for sure . If you had them on cd you could listen to them at a whim. Hope The Belle enjoys them too as she will more than likely be listening to them also. Lol

Heeheehee, AW, don't mess with them alligators!!

Last night we sat around and listened to stories of days gone by.'Haints', fireballs, and church--- the fireballs in "our" story were coming from the woods, crossing the road, INTO the cemetery. Since this is the cemetery about a half mile from my house I'm definitely asking others in the neighborhood about this!! Seems this was pretty active around 65 years ago and several of the neighbors were around at that time

Seems there was a small lake (pond) in a cemetary and 2 guys had been over there fishing and along about dark, they started dividing the fish to go home.... One for you, one for me...... An old drunk walks by and hears the activity and immediately gives up drinking and takes up religion when he thought that GOD and satan were over there sorting. LOL

White hair, you make us want to turn west and visit Tucson for awhile. Sigh, guess we'll head towards Louisville and snow after all.

Roads have been cleared and seem not bad except in out of the way places. Good luck! Be careful.

Thanks, whitehair! We've left the sunny skies for gray skies and its quite a bit cooler now. I65 is so crowded and its a pain to drive. It's my least favorite interstate but one I find myself on a lot :-(

Anne, you certainly are correct. It has dropped from 33 down to 22 in the last few hours. We are exhausted here on the "The Farm" as we have to change out water buckets every 2 hours. I am pulling hay from a round bale with a pitchfork plus they get a quart of sweet feed every 6 hours. We love our horses but this weather is wearing us down to a nub. Full 2 quarts of sweet feed every other day and plenty of hay.And, running to the hospital twice a day to see Mom in the ICU. At least she got moved to a regular room today so we don't have to hit that two hour window where you can visit for 10 minutes. Seems like we change our outfits every hour. It's getting old but we can't stop. C'mon spring time!

A good evening to all. Well, I finally recovered from my illness and hit the ground running again. That seems to be the way of life, run until you drop and have to recoup, then start running again. lol
I read with interest some of the haint tales that have been posted. I have had many unusual occurrences in my life which remain unexplained to date. But I don't dwell on those things. The way I look at it, it's a waste of time to worry my mind over things which I cannot explain. But it is interesting to discuss such things. I may share a haint tale or two of my own. People do seem to enjoy hearing such things - I know I do. lol
Everyone stay safe and warm. Goodnight!

Hi, Anne. I don't know anything first hand, only what I have read. There have been reports of fireball phenomenon as long as there has been recorded history and it seems they are not confined to cemeteries. I have read various possible explanations, some of which are, ball lightening, meteorites, UFOs and spirits. I have never personally seen one, but I know someone who tells of having experienced one more than 60 years ago when he was in the woods on a clear day, and it left no evidence in its path. He has never attempted to explain it, but states simply that he has no explanation for it. I read about sightings as recently as December. It does make for some interesting reading.

The only fireball I know in my long history which included cutting the grass in 2 large cemetaries was "Fireball Roberts".. a race car driver. lol

I'd appreciate hearing/reading any "tales" that you come across, Anne. BTW, tho I don't remember which one, one of the Foxfire books had a chapter on this sort of thing all told by old-timey folks.

@ Wolf.....similar to your story....one time years ago I was invited to visit some "coon asses" in (sp) Lafitte, La. At a whim, I took off and "finally" found Jimmy and his shrimp boat crew. Well, this older Cajun woman was making a great big pot of.......something.....and needed crawfish, etc., that was caught with raw chicken necks on a string that was tied to the old boards on a worn out pier. As this teenage cajun boy and I were putting the bait out in the water something like 60 feet out, I noticed that the old pier would sway heavily in the water. I asked him what was go'n on and he casually told me,....."awhhh, dat's jus da ole 'gators!" I immediately turned tail and took off for shore, making sure not to step where there was no longer any boards. By that time,......I coulda walked on water!

Naw,.....she's got her own little gismo head set with a small player on her waist. She loads the music that she likes into that little box and just goes about her merry way. To me, it doesn't have a very good sound or tone but she mostly uses it at work.........or to try to ignore me! She used to play rhythm guitar with me but..........damn TV!

Thanks for all the input!! I will look at the Foxfire books I have then head to the library to look at theirs! Hadnt thought about them as a source. Youd think aw wouldve seen a couple odd things mowing those cemeteries all those years. Lol As a teen my better half had a "fire in the cemetery" experience . The cemetery was at the top of a small rise, straight down the road from their house--flat fields on either side of the road. Anyway a couple of people (him +?) saw a large fire ball come up from that cemetery. It was huge, like the sun, but more red. No, it wasnt a sunset so it was explained away as "gasses from the cemetery".
Years ago at our home in western KY during a thunder/lightning/downpour my better half went to roll up the car windows. I was standing about 6 feet from the living room window and heard what I thought was him opening the front door to go out. At that moment a big (4-5ftacross) rolling ball of red fire went across the entry sidewalk by the steps and in front of the window. Better half would've been in its path except instead of using the front door he had opened the door into the garage and gone that direction. I was the only one to see the ball of fire. Maybe lightning struck the transformer? But that was behind the house and the fireball went in front if the house. Then too, our electricity did not go off. Who knows.
