Boy oh boy did this make mowin' the yard an absolute HOOT today! 1st I felt the pride of being the blood that oils the machinery of capitalism; then I rocked out a bit; and then I suddenly became as hungry as a Coal Miner - so much so that I grilled a whole bunch o' chicken out on the back deck while enjoying my earlier handywork in the yard. So many great tunes on this here eppy-sode! Great big tip o' the 10 gallon hat to that boy singing about the joys of Texas style BBQ. That Hank III tune was equally sharp - as I (believe it, or not) ain't to familiar with Hiram's grandson.

And... thanks fer the kind words, too, Steve-O.
