Mr. S. O. Teric is in the House!

Yep, he’s here, and so is his cousin, E. Klectic. What have they been doing?  Tripping out on YouTube. It started when I was looking at patriotic music to celebrate the impending weekend. I did relive lots of 4th of July memories. I don’t know why, but the 4th has a lot of memories for me. My only brother was born on the 2nd of July, back in 1964. I was in 7th grade and really liked the idea of a brother.(I still do!) The next event was buying my home, 24 years ago, today. Time really does fly, doesn’t it? After a lot of 4oj music, I was just fascinated by this…..

this one just led to this next work of art!

What a voice

Naughty LeAnn…

She’s a cute li’l home-wrecker!

As I ruminate  the many 4th celebrations, I think of those no longer with us. Waylon was my friend for many years and opened doors to experiences that I will never forget. This is one of his best…

My hero and friend..Big Hoss. His mother called him “Waylee”

Time has a way of softening the blow of harsh reality, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for that.  In my remembrances is the wedding of 1995.(on July 4th).  And yes, I was one of the participants. What was to last a lifetime ended in only three months. I have decided that there are two kinds of romantic love. There is the lasting kind and there is the hurting kind. I seem to gravitate to the second kind of love. We had a really cool wedding, though. Here is one of the songs the band played….

Now, just a heart-breaker song from the past

In my 1/4 century of living here, the district has always sponsored a fireworks show. If you live in Texas, no fireworks this year. I found a friend’s video that sums up my feelings on the draught situation, the water district, and most of my residual feelings from my 90 day wedding. Caution: contains liberal use of the S-word!

really a song directed to Nashville music scene!!

I hope your sense of humor kicked in for the last offering. Do you know Ray Wiley Hubbard? click. He is considered one of the elder statesman of the Texas music scene. I will include one more group of famous Texans. I really like this song. It kind of reminds me of fireworks…

So cool from the Coolest!! (Billy has been to my house.)

I have many more 4th of July memories that I will spare you from, today. I do sense a new wind blowing this fourth of July. I feel a mighty change in the air. My dream is actually unfolding, right before my very eyes. I am letting go. Yes, I'm letting go of the past, so that my hands will be free to grab a hold of my future. And like The Book says, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. I really do believe that. I know and believe that the pain and struggles I am feeling, are nothing more than just birth pangs. It won't be long now before my dream bursts forth into my life of RV freedom. Am I up to the challenge? You better believe it, because I do.

Another time, another universe…another life…for those who REALLY love!!!! (manic)

Did you figure out my two guests that mentioned at the first of this post? How about..... Esoteric and Eclectic. Thank you so much for taking the time to read what I sometimes call dribbling drool. I hope your holiday is blessed with good friends, good music, good food, and a whole boat load of good vibes. Thank you, my friends!



  1. Wow, someone else who knows It's a Beautiful Day! I thought I was the only one. I had that album.

  2. It's so much better to look forward to the future than back on all the pain. So keep those eyes and heart pointed toward the future and it will be ready for you.

  3. Michael, before you know it you'll be on the road...although the closer we get to our pull out date, the more nervous I get. I think it's just 'nervous about change' nervous, however. Mostly I'm so excited I have a hard time holding still or getting any actual work done...and I wouldn't trade these conflicting emotions for the world. I AM ALIVE!! That's how you tell when something has died--it stops growing. Thank you for the LeAnn! =)

  4. Shadow~the hard part was deciding which one of their songs to use. I did meet them in 1970. They opened for Steve Miller and their van was behind our car.

    Sandie~I know there is no future in the past. Thanks for reminding me.

    Kitty~ I relate 100%.

  5. AHH It's a Beautiful Day. 1st time I heard that album was the first time I really got Stoned. Good memories. And Wow Lee Ann has it all over John Anderson. Thanks for the introduction to some new music. Have a happy 4th!

  6. Bob~there you are. Doesn't LeAnn seriously kick his butt?

  7. Great Post Michael, its good to look back and then move forward. I really know what you mean about being drawn to the gravitating to the second kind of love. So I made a life for myself on my own and its working out quite well.
    Have a great 4Th.

  8. Thank you JoJo...what is it about that 2nd kind of love? It starts out feeling good then......
