Home.....

.... scary, scary things here, rubberneckers......... but it is what it is......

..... in other news, I found an old song tonight that brought back some memories for me.....

.... and while I am not remotely from West Virginia, I do remember listening to this song on the radio as The Missus and I pulled up to the home of The Inlaws in Scotland........ and I cried....... I sat there in the car and cried......... if you listen to the song, you might understand just a bit about what it means to be "Home"....... we all miss our homes at one point or another.......

..... that was many, many years ago...... and now, well, the shoe is on the other foot, to use the eternal euphemism.......... but still, the song moves me.........

.... and yes, Fretkillr does a much better job than Mr. Denver............

...... enjoy the song, fellow travelers......... it is a beautiful piece of music......

Bullshit So Far

Comments were closed on the Charleston thread. You should let me know who your kin is and where buried. Perhaps I may do homage in your stead. . . or perhaps an unholy Blog Meet in the Holy City is in order!

As a teenager, I was a big John Denver fan - probably because I was a mountain girl and maybe because I saw him in concert before he became famous. So I love "Country Roads." My cousin used to pick and sing at family reunions and did a great job on this song.

Being a native of West Virginia, as well as being the home state of my parents, this song makes me tear up everytime I hear it. Reminds me of my dad, who I miss terribly.
