Does Your Cat Play The Fiddle?

Does Your Cat Play The Fiddle?

Does your cat play the fiddle?

Does she play violin?

Does she play all night

Till long after 10?

I never really know 

Just when it will end

Does your cat play the fiddle

Does she play violin

Does your cat play the bongos?

Does she play the Kazoo?

When I first heard the music

I thought it was you

I have to wonder

What's the world coming to?

Does your cat play the bongos?

Does she play the Kazoo?

Does your cat play guitar

Does she play rock and roll

Does she play bass guitar

For hip hop and soul

Sometimes it seems like 

Losing control

Does your cat play guitar

Does she play rock and roll?

This song/children's tale is done to the tune of "Cotton Eye Joe"

Chronicles of Me: Let The River Wash Me, and the Stories Behind It!

Chronicles Of Me The Story Behind Let That River Wash Me To The Gulf Of Mexico There is a story here and I think it is pretty clear and doesn't need explanation, but I want to add some other dimensions to the tale. First, it is true. Second, it is an amalgamation of two experiences, one with my father and the other with my daughter. My father had several heart attacks and other health issues but still lived alone in the manner he chose. A few months before his passing, I stopped by his place and asked him a question: “What was your first childhood memory?” That led to some pretty great stories! It turns out that we had a lot of shared memories which were a generation separated, and of things that neither of us was aware that the other knew. Just one example: There was a huge mulberry tree on a sandbar in the middle of the creek from which we both feasted, divided by 20 years. There were lots of others, and it was at that time that he told me that he had made pl

Chronicles Of Me: When it Rains at the Rains County Fair

Chronicles Of Me When it Rains at the Rains County Fair No matter how dry gulch dusty life gets in small Texas towns, there is always a formula for bringing rain! This formula is not the ritual beating of drums, nor is it some frenzied dance of native agriculturalists or rockets fired by rainmakers but falls more in the category of a meteorological Murphy's Law. It works something like this: The chance of heavy rainfall is directly proportional to the distance you are from your pickup truck with the windows rolled down. We may also express it in this way: The probability of torrential downpours may be calculated by the number of bails of hay in the field, multiplied by the number of hay haulers who did not show up, and adding the number who left after picking up the first bail! By far, though, my favorite formula for rainmaking is chronological: The coming of the Rains County Fair! In those days it always rained during the fair, or at least it seemed th
