The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

I really like old country music!
It makes you think about your own life and what is important, to be happy!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Been listening to quite a bit of Guy Clark & Towns Van Zandt as of late, don't make song writers like they used to!

Townes Van Zandt [en.wikipedia.org] - a hard and tragic life - a masterful song writer/singer.
"Van Zandt was respected for his guitar playing and fingerpicking ability."

"[wikipedia][Much of Van Zandt's life was spent touring various dive bars,[5] often living in cheap motel rooms and backwood cabins. For much of the 1970s, he lived in a simple shack without electricity or a telephone."

" . . infamous quote from Steve Earle: "Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that." Van Zandt responded with the famous quip, "I've met Bob Dylan's bodyguards, and if Steve Earle thinks he can stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table, he's sadly mistaken."

A Chipmonk, keep telling me this, my dear wife at time gets weary of me saying "that cost way to much in 1969 it was only...." and I used to be able to do that with ease.Ed

Steve Earle also later said about Van Zandt something to the effect of: he was a great friend, but a terrible role model.
