But this summer I just can't get enough of good old country music. I love the lyrics, the melodies and just about everything about it. Hubby does not share my enthusiasm.. He's definitely a little bit rock and roll.
This is an actual photo of hubby and Mick Jagger. Hubby was working in a restaurant in the small town we grew up in and Mick was staying out our one small Inn with his then wife Jerrie Hall. They had gone to see Sting the night before. Hubby asked for the photo op and got it. This is in the 1980's and let me tell you that in REAL life hubby has straight hair...true to the decade, he is sporting a perm. Yowwwy.
The other morning I was watching the TODAY show and they had a segment on how many of Roy Rogers things were being auctioned off at Christies of New York, including the real taxidermy of Trigger which sold for $266,000. I am feeling a new obsession coming on. Sassy Lassie goes western.
Of course I know who Roy Rogers and Dale Evans are, but they were not household names in my family, although I think I would have liked them to be.
What a life they lived!!!!!
I have been watching this little number on ebay for a few days and may just have to indulge myself.
