I heard that Paul Davis passed away this week...most people probably never heard of him,his biggest hit record was "I Go Crazy" but he had several more. I remembered him because he had a song out around 1975 called "Ride 'em Cowboy".Can't really explain it,but but it always made me cry when I heard it. I mean,there I was,19 years old,riding around in my souped up '72 Rally Nova with an AM radio and when Paul Davis came on and sang "Ride 'em Cowboy" i'd cry like a baby. So obviously i'd change the station if anybody was with me,otherwise i'd listen and cry.
I was sitting in the back yard earlier and got to thinking,after i'd planted some corn and beans.I went to youtube and listened to "Ride 'em Cowboy" for the first time in years...yeah,I couldn't help crying,but I didn't let Jobyna see me. Now i'm telling everybody how I cried...go figure.
I once told a very dear friend of mine,whom I love like a son,right after his younger brother was killed in an accident that time heals all wounds,but nothing will ever be the same again. And that is still true-he didn't believe me of course,but I lost my best friend ever,David Elder (A.K.A. Travelin' Kid) and then as you know my wife died of multiple myloma,a form of cancer. I had never loved anyone like her,and never will again,but i'm OK-Jobyna is funny,and weird at times,( most of the time actually) and I love her too,but it's different. I know I carry on more nonsense here than anyone,but i've started now,so i'll continue . Someone once told me that when the Lord takes something away,he always gives you something back. So that gets me to the point that- I believe that's true. Ive met more people,and made new friends-even right here on BMT.Nocluejoe for example-he's got new twins,got laid off from his job,but if I was in trouble and needed him for something I feel like he'd find a way to get here.Big Jim,Paul,Bollweevil,and others are the same way. Right Paul?
So... I don't know why this serious mood came over me,but i'll get over it. Anybody want me to scan more old pictures?
