All Hallow’s Eve

Kids came by the “Houuuse” tonight looking for candy, so I gave them some. I was never really allowed to get all that into Halloween as a kid, since my parents were pretty conservative and religious. We’d usually spend Halloween at the church doing stuff that I thought was pretty fun at the time. I did go trick-or-treating my share of times, and that was definitely way better. The kids are cute though.

I love honky tonk music. Waylon Jennings is my hero. Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Hank II, and my newfound loves – Moe Bandy, and Charley Pride. I can’t tell you why I like it so much, except that it’s so stripped down that the vocals have to be good, and so often the lyrics really speak to what seem like the simplest and most complex human emotions simultaneously. The guitar licks are always absolutely killer.

Check out Moe Bandy on youtube.

  1. Sweet Halloween story. I hate halloween, tho, becuz I hate holidays unless it’s my birthday which is only a legal holiday in my head. As for Waylon Jennings, I know a flat-back Labrador named “Waylon Jennings” that you can dognap for $1.00. Let’s meet and I’ll give you the address. Sweet dog. No brains but very vocal. You could probably teach him to disobey but that’s about it.
