This morning we were awakened by our neighbor Nick
inviting us to a fish fry at the community center.
Being musicians, 11:30 is early for us,
but we met a lot of nice people.
Afterward we came home and had breakfast.
Then at 2 PM our friends Bill & Suzie,
a/k/a “Tall Timber Antique Medicine Show”, came over.
Bill was going to hook up the washing machine
but we got the wrong part, so we get to do it again.
We recorded an hour long interview for their radio show tonight.
I’ll let you know when it airs.
There is a huge box of cowboy hats
taking up space in the front bedroom.
When I lean back in a chair the front of the hat tilts up.
I like them anyway.
All hat…. no cattle?
No. The cattle are in the back bedroom.
Yesterday Misty brought home a water filter
called “Zero Water”.
I think it filters out the wet part.
The new water filter must be working
because we drank some and we’re not sick,
walking funny, or speaking like Porky Pig.
Misty is so hyper when she has things to do
like packing and moving.
She goes at it like she’s killing snakes.
I’m gonna take my shirt off like Putin and sing Crimea River.
The problem with communism is… people like to own stuff.
“BORSCHT”… The sound of unexpected gas while dancing.
This from Will Campbell…
I ate some peanuts that were on the bar,
when somebody said, “You look great!””
I said “Who said that?”
The bartender said, “It’s the peanuts. They’re complimentary.”
For the record…
There was a movie called “Porky’s”
about a bar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Misty and I played there before the movie was made.
Somebody accused me of having a temper!
That drives me CRAZY!!!
THEY BETTER KNOCK IT OFF OR GET A KNUCKLE SANDWICH!!!
I hate people saying I have a temper.
That’s it! Music has stood in my way long enough!
I’m going to clown college!

By Billy Dukes: Fans will find a few fresh faces near the top of the Top 40 Country Songs of June 2014 list. Dustin Lynch, Lee Brice and Chris Young all cracked the Top 10, with ‘Where It’s At’ leaping a dozen spots to hit No. 6. The top song goes to a hit that the singer’s fans believed in long before radio. It might be the perfect song for summer 2014.
Brantley Gilbert‘s new song ‘Small Town Throwdown’ ranks highest (No. 14) amongst songs to debut in June. Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Bartender’ also made quite a showing (No. 18), as did ‘Something Bad” from Miranda Lambert. She comes in at No. 30, which is impressive considering the song hasn’t even been announced as an official single … yet.
Luke Bryan‘s ‘Play It Again’ was last month’s No. 1, and the hit hardly slowed down. He’s at No. 2. The biggest leap was by ‘Drunk on a Plane,’ Dierks Bentley‘s newest song. Helped by a hilarious video, the song moves from No. 36 to No. 5. Find your favorite song for June 2014 on the list below.

WHISNews21 Comment: The only singer on the Country Chart pictured in the picture above that fits the part of a Country artists is George Strait. It’s such a shame that artists want to be Country Stars yet they dont look like Country Stars at all. With one foot in Country and one foot in another genre. Real Country fans should voice their opinion more and more.
WHISNews21 Opinion: Real Country Music is not dying, it is being exterminated.
Lay down your problems long enough to gaze at Me. Picture yourself standing at the edge of an ocean, on a beach covered with pebbles. The pebbles represent problems-yours, your family’s, your friends’, the world’s. As you pick up these small stones and hold them close to your eyes-examining their details-they obscure your view of the grandeur all around you. Usually, as soon as you put down one pebble-problem, you pick up another. Thus, you fail to enjoy the beauty of My Presence and to receive My help.
The ocean represents Me-endlessly glorious and continually present with you. I am calling you to put down all the pebbles for a time so that you can experience My Presence and receive My unfailing Love. Draw near Me by praying, I choose You, Jesus. I choose to see You-to find You-in this moment. Practice doing this until it becomes a habit: a delightful habit that will keep you close to Me on the path of Life.
Holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. -Hebrews 3:1
“The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. -Psalm 33:5″
By faith [Moses] left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. -Hebrews 11:27
“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. -Psalm 16:11
