Don't know if we have any country music fans out there or not, but I just had two concerts this week with Allen Frizzell, younger brother to Lefty Frizzell (31 Mar 1928 – 19 July 1975), and David Frizzell (b. 26 Sept 1941), who are country music legends. Allen used to be all country, but has gone into Country Gospel. He told me he used to be married to Shelly West (31 Mar 1928 – 19 July 1975), daughter of Dottie West (b. 23 May 1958). He is a great singer.
WOWZERS! COOL BEANS! Thanks for sharing that with us, Glenn - and Happy Birthday!

|The Ten Essential Virtues of
By Dr. Charles
D. Schmitz and Dr. Elizabeth A. Schmitz
This morning, a
great friend of ours sent along an article that we were really taken
with. For those who have read our book, Building a Love that Lasts
(Jossey-Bass/Wiley 2010), you may recall a chapter entitled, "A Tribute
to Lasting Love" (pp. 259-262). In this chapter we highlighted the
wonderful six-decade marriage of Sandy and Pris, whom we had interviewed
for our book.
From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 AND 02/07/10 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD" AND 61-62 DECADERS ADDENDA:
Contact Dr. Chambers at email@example.com.
FromArcaMax Jokes - 06/24/10:
"It's time to see how clearly you can think," the teacher said to his class. "Now, listen carefully, and think about what I'm saying. I'm thinking of a person who has the same mother and father as I have. But this person is not my brother and not my sister. Who is it?"
The kids in the class furrowed their brows, scratched their heads, and otherwise showed how hard they were thinking. But no one came up with the right answer.
When everyone in the class had given up, the teacher announced, "The person is me."
Little Jeffrey beamed at learning the answer. "That's a good one," he said to himself. "I'll have to try that on Mom and Dad."
At dinner that night, little Jeffrey repeated the riddle to his parents. "I'm thinking of a person who has the same mother and father as I have," he said. "But this person isn't my brother and isn't my sister. Who is it?"
His parents furrowed their brows, scratched their heads, and otherwise pretended that they were thinking hard. Then they both said, "I give up. Who is it?"
"It's my teacher!" Jeffrey said.
