Just trying to survive growing older with as much dignity as I can muster considering dignity was never my strong suit to begin with.

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN, JESUS AND JOHN WAYNE
I love this song off the Gaithers new CD "I'm Loving LIfe". This is the best video I could find but I am sure a better version will be uploaded soon. This is probably where I stand. I try, Lord knows I try, but somehow, I end up here.....Somewhere between--- Jesus and John Wayne. The first line is skipped on the video but I put the lyrics so you could read them.
Daddy was a cowboy hard as a rock Mama she was quiet as a prayer Daddy’d always tell me, “Son, you gotta be tough Mama would kiss my cheek and say, “play fair” I did my best to make ‘em proud of me But it’s never been an easy place to be
Somewhere between Jesus and John Wayne A cowboy and a saint, the cross and the open range I try to be more like you Lord, But most days I know I ain’t I’m somewhere between Jesus and John Wayne.
Mama’s love was tender, Daddy’s love was strong Both of them were there to help the weak They taught me to stand up and fight for what is right And showed me how to turn the other cheek Now I see there’s both of them in me And maybe that’s the best that I can ever hope to be
I have three cats,,two boys and a girl and a little, eleven year old mixed dog named Solo. That's my little
girl, Meshe in the pic..She is much prettier than I am, so I chose her for my pic. I also have a very nice DH named Billy. He's a keeper.
