Every Once In A While

that special time comes along. Those times that seem to surprise you, times so special that you know you are experiencing a "once in a lifetime." Times when you are able to be with the people that matter most to you in the whole wide world. Times of honor, and fun. When family gathers together to celebrate, and cheer, and support, and just "be," for you know these moments don't come along just any old day.

You cut up, laugh, and act silly.

You savor being there.

Maybe do a little line dancin'...or boot scootin.'

And you visit beautiful places...awesome and dreamy.

And for a time, you enjoy February. Even in Nashville.

And, you catch up with old friends, who have become old legends. "Whisperin' their way through songs, carving out a musical career.

Old friends who have become old icons. Like Bill Anderson, and Little Jimmy Dickens.

But best of all, you get to experience your daddy...appearing on the the Grand Ole Opry. Stealing the show, no less.

Old radio men never die...they simply appear on the Grand Ole Opry. Congrats Daddy!
