Here is a video of last year’s fireworks show at Riverfest in La Crosse, WI.

Johnny Cash and The Old Ragged Flag

I walked through a county courthouse square
On a park bench, an old man was sittin’ there.
I said, “Your old court house is kinda run down,
He said, “Naw, it’ll do for our little town”.
I said, “Your old flag pole is leaned a little bit,
And that’s a ragged old flag you got hangin’ on it”.
He said, “Have a seat”, and I sat down,
“Is this the first time you’ve been to our little town”
I said, “I think it is”
He said “I don’t like to brag, but we’re kinda proud of
That Ragged Old Flag
“You see, we got a little hole in that flag there,
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
and It got powder burned the night Francis Scott Key sat watching it,
writing “Say Can You See”
It got a rip in New Orleans, with Packingham & Jackson
tugging at its seams.
and It almost fell at the Alamo
beside the Texas flag,
But she waved on though.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville,
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee and Beauregard and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on
That Ragged Old Flag
“On Flanders Field in World War I,
She got a big hole from a Bertha Gun,
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp, and low, a time or two,
She was in Korea, Vietnam, She went where she was sent
by her Uncle Sam.
She waved from our ships upon the briny foam
and now they’ve about quit wavin’ back here at home
in her own good land here She’s been abused,
She’s been burned, dishonored, denied an’ refused,
And the government for which she stands
Has been scandalized throughout out the land.
And she’s getting thread bare, and she’s wearin’ thin,
But she’s in good shape, for the shape she’s in.
Cause she’s been through the fire before
and i believe she can take a whole lot more.
“So we raise her up every morning
And we bring her down slow every night,
We don’t let her touch the ground,
And we fold her up right.
On second thought
I *do* like to brag
Cause I’m mighty proud of
That Ragged Old Flag”

I Miss My Momma!

Today is my mom’s birthday. She would have been 62 years old. The following song was the first thing I thought of today, while thinking about mom.

Clock is ticking while I’m killing time
Spinning all around
Nothing else that you can do
To turn it back

Wicked partnership
In this crime
Ripping off the best
Condescending smile

Trying to forget
– Wasting my time
We’re falling right through
Lying to forget
– Telling more lies
We’re raising our truth

Go on and tease me

Clock is ticking while I’m stealing time
Can’t you turn it back?
Stop the cycle
Let it free
Run away

Silent Sneaking
Along my Path
Rugged the Road
But we feel it
Like we’re flying

Trying to Forget
– Wasting my time
We’re falling right through
Lying to forget
– Telling more lies
We’re raising our truth

Love Straight From My Husband’s Heart – Minecraft Style

My husband plays the game Minecraft quite a lot now that he is stuck at home all the time.  Well, on March 2, 2012 he made the following video for me.  It took him nearly four hours to complete this.

He is one awesome husband.  This was waiting for me on my computer when I got home from a long 10 hour work day. (Don’t tell him but it made me cry…happy tears).
