Home of Country Music

At the Texan's party, some fellow Texan's took to bragging - as they are known to do. Texas is the home of country music, they said.

Now, I don't want to disrespect the many fine artists from Texas. But really. And I'll even admit to be discouraged by an overslick "Nashville sound" - but not in mixed company.

One fellow took it in mind to dis Dolly. Even the Texan warned him off "You really don't want to go there," she said.


Ms C - from Texas and Tennessee - therefore a dual national, has a little dog called Amos Moses.

Those not steeped inthe genre of novelty country music songs, may be unfamiliar with the character Amos Moses. Amos was an illegal allegator hunter, with one arm and a big appetite. He was linked with the disappearance of Louisiana law enforcement official.

I kinda wanted to laugh at her for naming her pet after a slightly goofy country song. But then again my pet might have been born just a plain black cat, but Fancy is her name.

They named him after a man of the cloth--called him Amos Moses.

The Other Half's favorite song and on high rotation in the Itunes library at our house.

Chomp. Now don't let me down.

Texas might possibly claim Western Swing. But country music itself...never.

Grr, I knew there was a reason I distrust Texans. The nerve! Oh, I'm sure you also have lots of discussions as to the REAL UT.

They can't claim country music; that's just wrong.

My friend has a dog named "Bocephus"...
