I love Oklahoma. I enjoy reading stuff about the run of 1889. I wrote a song about that in 1989. There was a contest in the paper. I didn't win, but I sure enjoyed writing and singing the song. I thought it was well written. Most of it I just made up as I went along, which is what I do when I write songs.
My niece that lives in North Carolina is publishing my song book. I have written 108 songs, probably more than that, but that is all she is going to put in the book, as of right now. I hope folks will buy it, but they may not. We will have to wait and see. It is gonna be a good book. Pictures in it and everything.
My husband and I celebrated 46 years of marriage on the 4th of April. That is a long time. At least it is to me.Of course we must like each other to stay together that long. He is a good man, we have tolerated each other for years, why mess with a good thing.
Well I will try to keep you informed about my new book. I think the name of it will be, "One More Row Too Go." We used to be cotton pickers and Mama always said that, whenever we wanted to quit and go to the house. So one day when I was a playing my guitar, the words just floated down to me, and that was how I wrote it. You may never hear it on radio, but that is a good song. Well that is all for now, maybe later.
