Great times are always to be had at the Annual Shiner Volunteer Fire Department’s car show and BBQ cook-off. And 2016 was no different with a record number of classic cars on hand
I’ve been following Hickok 45 on Facebook and You Tube for several months now. I really like this guy and his awesome videos. He has made hundreds of videos on guns. Chances are if you have a gun, old Hickok 45 has done a video on it. I was looking for reviews and information on a Heritage Rough Rider .22/.22 mag revolver that I purchased a while back – I did a search on it and old Hickok popped up. I subscribed to his You Tube account and I look at his stuff often. The video below is about my pistol – I highly recommend this guy.
I’ve been a fan of Duck Dynasty ever since the show began. I’m impressed with these good folks, their values and outlook on life. They haven’t let success go to their heads and they are always helping others. Recently Willie and Korie Robertson initiated a new program called Drive Adoption to promote adopting children – I hope you will watch the short video below and do what you can on your social media sites to promote this worthy cause. – Willie & Korie talk about adoption.
You might say that Merle Haggard sort of brought me back to my roots; back to country music. You see back in the ’70s I was listening to soul and rock music – don’t get me wrong, I still love that music but when I was a kid all my Daddy listened to was Hank Williams Sr. and country music. As a teenager in the ’60s country music just didn’t do it for me and I loved folks like The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Buddy Holly, etc. Then is was The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and such.
Sometime around 1965, I heard Merle Haggard sing and that was it, I instantly became a big fan. I went to Houston three times in the ’70s to see him in concert and I was never disappointed. I guess like many of my loved ones who have passed, I thought Merle would live forever – thank God his music will.
Thanks for the memories, Merle; rest in peace. – Story on passing of Merle Haggard
