Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Happy Birthday Granny

Nov. 8 is my late grandmother's birthday. This song always reminds me of her. I used to spend many summer days with her and my cousin. Heck, I just spent a lot of time down there. She had a big old field behind her house and we made a clubhouse down by the railroad tracks. I used to pick Indian Paintbrush from the field, too. One afternoon, my cousin and I were listening to the radio and this song came on. My granny was not very PC and after the chorus, she yelled "Oh for God's sake, would you just sail away with him, so he'll shut up!?!" So, every time I hear this song, I smile and think about Granny. I miss her. Playing dominos, singing very politically incorrect songs about Daniel Boone being chased by a bear, her version of the 'monkey wrapped his tail around the flagpole' that rhymed with something about his A-hole. *shaking my head* What can I say? The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

    *laughing and shaking head*

    Yeah ... we were exposed to a bit of a different world when we were growing up than kids see today (unless you're a relative of Dog the bounty hunter). Unfortunately, I know both of those songs *chuckle*
