“She taught me how to smile
When things get rough

I’ve got her spirit
She’s always got my back
When I look at her
I think, I want to be just like that

When I love I give it all I’ve got
Like my mother does
When I’m scared, I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does…”

HOWDY Y’ALL

WHAT A beautiful day it truly is… What a beautiful day!

YOU KNOW how it is, when you would want to do somethin’ an’ you start havin’ some difficulty doing it—even just just starting could be quite a dilemma right? No matter how easy it may be or, even, no matter how passionate you could be it would all be the same… Oops, ROAD BLOCK!

OKAY, bein’ the Country Folk that we are, I will come out clean. Yep, Old Jack is havin’ a li’l trouble figurin’ out what to share with you folks today. Ha! Ha! Ha! Still a beautiful day though…

WAIT A MINUTE…!

Y’ALL ARE much awares about namin’ them cars or trucks—most especially right? Heck, all of us or do it right? Most especially us fellas. Well, if you don’t, the majority does.

“…Marlena…”

ANYWAY, we jest love goin’ mobile right? And, of course—at times— workin’ mobile. I DO. That is why we got ‘em trucks an’ lappy-tops in the first place! Laugh at Old Jack all you want, but to be honest with y’all, Jack has yet to get his own (actually). Heh heh heh. Sad ‘aye? Got me my lappy-top atleast! And she got a name. An’ it’s a beautiful one at that. Since m’Momma’s name is Maria Elena, I named me lappy Marlena. My Momma likes being called Marlene or Lenny though. Which—the latter—may be what I would be namin’ my truck. Yep, Lenny would shore sound very nice…

“…but Momma shore had a huge impact in us all…”

UHUH, WE FELLAS may have acquired and learned more than just a thing or two of em’ manly-manly stuff from Poppa, but Momma shore had a huge impact in us all. So I figure, why not Old Jack play us somethin’ ‘bout Momma? An’ this ones by Lauren Alaina, Like My Mother Does…

WELL, THAT SHORE WAS a great way of appreciatin’ and recognizin’ our Mommas.

OUR HUGE THANKS GOES TO Y’ALL for swingin’ by again an’ for bein’ such wonderful Country Fans! May y’all keep havin’ and enjoying this beautifal day. This is Our Kind of Country, and AS ALWAYS,

“MAY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY BLESS US ALL AND SET US FREE!”
