Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock n roll.
Well, I was beginning to think that everyone thought redneck, country girls didn't rock. But being that I was born and raised in an area smack dab between George Jones' home and Janice Joplin's home I run the full spectrum. Have to admit I like the clean, clear lyrics of earlier rock. And I am very partial to Motown. Daddy took me to see Ernest Tubb in concert when I was about 8. And my sisters instilled in me that you always watch Elvis any chance you get. (BTW: August is Elvis month on TV Land! Movies, interviews and concerts.)
I know everything from "My Bucket's Got a Hole In It" to "Hell's Bells". Gracious! Mama even clued me in on who Rudy Valley, Glenn Miller and Nat King Cole were. But she didn't dance. Brought up to be a good Baptist. Daddy knew how to waltz. I never got to dancing until I was out of high school!! Then I seemed to make up for lost time. The last 20 years or so most of my dancing has been dancing babies around.
To make a long story short, Carolyn named me as a: And I'm flattered! Very.
Now I'm supposed to pass the award on to five more rockin' ladies. I know many who do. I'm just not 100% sure who has already been rocked and who hasn't. So, I'll just pick and hope for the best.
A new found friend of mine stirs up memories in her journal: Do You Remember? I don't even know her name yet. But her screenie is ggjack7 and she's still got it going on in her 70's. So she rocks!
A rockin' new tagger in J-land, lipglosslush7, has got it goin' on over at Juicy Apple Designs. Her tags and sigs are young and hip.....so she's rockin'!
My friend, Vee, is keeping it real and unto the Lord over at Diary of A Sold Out Woman. Nothing rocks more than that!
Marlene at A Poet's Point of View ROCKS with beautiful photos and stirring poetry.
And there's Donna. Donna rocks because she is a devoted mom who shares cute and comical conversations with her boys over at Sweeping the Cobwebs of My Mind. And she's a Texas girl!
Okay people, what are you still doing here? Go, enjoy and
ROCK N ROLL!!!!
