Cowgirls don't cry....

Y'all remember this? My Happy Cap? [Okay, it's also for bad hair days; and, lazy hair days.]
If you keep trying you will succeed -- this 'tis true because I kept searching and I found THIS for all of you! It took awhile though, due to the multiple 'embedding disabled' thingies with so many of the videos.
You have to give it a listen.  The beat is nice but the story is fantastic.  I totally *heart* this song.  Course, we heard it on the way to meet the breakfast crew this morning and it has been in my mind all day long.  
So what do I do?  Well, obvious!  I listen to it about a million kazillion times over, and over, and over until my brain reboots -- fresh and clear. ;-)
Y'all know me and I'm all capped out sometimes with my "Pull Up Your Big Cowgirl Boots and Deal With It."  
I wear this song right along with it. ;-)  That's why I wanted to share.  I don't think it will get stuck in your minds.  It's a 'me' thing.  So don't think I'm trying to set you up.  But, I really do hope you give it a little listen.
Brooks and Dunn always remind me of my farming friend and dance partner who introduced me to my Hubster.  He was a Southern guy, real southern and an excellent two-stepper, chuffler, etc.  You name it -- we could dance it.
He was killed in an ultralight accident about two or three years after he'd introduced me to my future life mate.  I remember I was at work when DH gave me the call that they heard it and thought it was him.
I thought I was okay.  But, then I broke down and went home.  I played Brooks and Dunn for the entire evening and cried.  Then, I watched it on the news....and played it all over again and cried again.
He was a great, fun-loving guy.  Gosh, darn'it.  If we didn't tell him umpteen times to stay out of that dang paper-mache craft.
Anyhow.  I don't know what possessed me to throw that in here.  I guess the flash of Kix Brooks in the video cuz' that was our nick-name for him.  He looked just like Kix Brooks so that was his name around us.
Well, I'm off to tackle the mountain of laundry and I might hit a few toilets to free up my morning tomorrow...  And, the baseboards need a good dust by the paint brush designated strictly for baseboards.  That'll make me feel like I'm earning my keep so I don't get fired from my day job.
[I'll probably take Macxine in the room with me though, while folding laundry.  So, I don't miss out on my tweeps! *smiley-wink*]
Happy Sunday!

Hey girl your blog is looking great! I have been neglecting the blogs in lieu of a Facebook addiction. lol

That is a sad story about your friend. I will have to listen to that song later.

I am so sorry about your friend that is so sad. I hope you are doing well. I can relate to the laundry mounds and things around the house.

You're probably finished folding your laundry by now -

But I just wanted to say, I know what it's like to lose a friend. I also know what it's like when you think about them.

Great blog, Nova. I've been enjoying reading.

How sad, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I love this song too. I'm a big country music fan.
Today was laundry day for me too. I dusk my baseboards like crazy too. I hate to see the dust build up on them. Hope you had a great sunday.

Songs often remind me of people. Somehow I'd missed out on this song before (although I like B&D, and Reba). That is a sad ending for a friend who was important in your life. I guess that cowboy really wanted to fly. People who do stuff like that love it.

I keep reminding myself to get a paint brush like the one you described, and I can just hear your voice saying I need one! Esp. after the winds we've gotten, I think it would work great on my blue shutters.
