Bargain Tex

While at the Salvation Army Thrift Store the other day I found a record, "Tex Ritter: An American Legend." It's a three-record set and includes such hits as "High Noon" and "Jingle, Jingle, Jingle." With commentary by Tex, it's a rich experience to listen to this music and his voice, singing and describing how various songs came to be recorded. The best part is, I only paid one dollar for this treasure.
Is this a great country or what?
Weather or Not. . .
. . . we like, we have it. Rain, rain, rain, flood, flood, flood. We've been watching the weather channel with the rest of the country, praying for Galveston.

Thanks for reminding me of Tex. Need to get an imeem album of his music to listen to.

Watching the morning after as I write this morning. It was Mother Nature at her worst - and most magnificent. Lots of trauma and damage but we (civilization) beat the bitch at her worst
