The Little Things

* David “King of Late Night” Letterman with Howard “King of All Media” Stern together on Late Night. It doesn’t get any better.
* I heard an Asheville tv weatherman say to expect a cold weekend with a high temperature of only 38 degrees. Hours later, a friend from New Hampshire calls, says temps there are warming to the upper 30s. Location, location, location.
* Two Mormons knocked on my door today. I invited them inside, where they shared their beliefs with me – and I shared a few of mine with them. We disagreed on most points, but that’s okay. Thirty minutes later, they knocked on my neighbor’s door while I sat with hot tea.
* Let’s go to the mailbag:
I just received an e-mail from someone asking me to write about my last days as a radio dj.
My answer is ……. maybe.
* Music fans everywhere are remembering Whitney Houston (8/9/63-2/11/12).
I was working at WCKZ when her version of I Will Always Love You spent a whopping 14 weeks at #1.

Treading Unfamiliar

Treading unfamiliar, I was driving, she was gone
Treading unfamiliar, I was driving, she was gone
Ended in Colorado riding and walking with a horse and dog
Desperate living in a hard time, nothing but mountains and a load to bear
Desperate living in a hard time, nothing but mountains and a load to bear
The sun was sinking on a west side, how far to go, I couldn’t tell;
Made like Frank “The Outlaw”, his brother, sure you know him well
Made like Frank “The Outlaw”, his brother, sure you know him well
Always ready for a high time, robbed some banks and trains on rail
Headlines held for a long time, Clay County’s Jesse and Frank
Headlines held for a long time, Clay County’s Jesse and Frank
On the run slingin’ guns, cold murder if it’s what it takes;
Just like Jesse James done, I laid my gun down, things changed
Just like Jesse James done, I laid my gun down, things changed
Mistake number one when to let my trust in a plan go rearranged
Wanted poster with a reward, that’s what it said, that’s what I read
Wanted poster with a reward, that’s what it said, that’s what I read
In the click of a round from a chamber, no longer running, no, just dead;
Treading unfamiliar, I was driving, she was gone
Treading unfamiliar, I was driving, she was gone
Ended in Colorado riding and walking with a horse and dog
Desperate living in a hard time, nothing but mountains and a load to bear
