How ‘Bout Some Homecoming Help For This Clueless Dad

I've heard it said that when it comes to raising kids, sons are a lot less expensive than daughters.  I think the brunt of that message is about to hit me square in the jaw.

My oldest is a 15 year old girl...and it's homecoming season.  When I was going to high school (eons ago), I never really had a girlfriend, at least not during homecoming, so buying mums, or gifts, or going to the homecoming dance was not an issue...but now, well, let's just say I need some help and direction.

9/11, Pearl Harbor, And My 11th Grade History Class

I was not alive when Pearl Harbor happened.  Heck, my mom was only 4 years old at the time.   Much like anyone born years after 1941, I knew the details about the attack on Pearl Harbor, but I could hardly fathom the feelings of the profound significance of that terrible day on December 7th.

That all changed for me in 1980, and even more so in 2001.

Danny Merrell Celebrates National Bad Poetry Day

Emerson...Dante...Tennyson...Dr. is not their day.

This is the day that we aspiring poets try our best effort at verse.  Nope.  Scratch that.

This is the day that we silly people try to make up bad poetry - limericks, haiku, iambic pentameter (not sure what that means, but it sounded poetic)...any style of poetry is up for grabs.

I have some bad poetry for you...after the jump.

Danny Merrell Interviews John Conlee On The Merrell In The Morning Show [AUDIO]

And the answer is:   "Behind the wheel of a garden tractor".

The question: "These days, where are you most likely to find country music legend John Conlee".

Conlee is still keeping busy with touring and making new music (Classics 2 is his latest effort), but he's also quite content at maintaining his huge garden and canning all sorts of vegetables.

John Conlee will be in concert this Friday night at Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches and I had a chance to talk with  Mr. 'Rose Colored Glasses' about gardening, the state of country music, and much more...after the jump.

Glen Templeton On The Merrell In The Morning Show [AUDIO]

His name is Glen Templeton...and  he was featured on the Merrell in the Morning show.

He's also gonna be coming back to town as part of a special show with Brantley Gilbert.

After listening to Glen's debut CD, I really believe that he really has what it takes to make it to the big time...and when I say big time, I mean standing on the stage, collecting awards big time.

But, I would love to get your input on some of his songs to find out whether I'm on the right path, or whether you believe he's not as good as I think he is.

The Warranty On My Body Must Have Ended When I Turned 40

I turned 40 in the Summer of 2004.

Up until that time, my body and I were on very good speaking terms.  I could jog a couple of miles or golf 18 holes or play a pick up game of basketball and still be able to sit upright at the dinner table that evening.

However, it seems the VERY DAY I turned 40, my body has been doing most all the talking...and when I say talking, I mean complaining, whining, and at times, screaming out like a squeaker toy that just got run over by an 18-wheeler.

Texas Budget Shortfall? — World’s Finest Chocolate To The Rescue!

You recognize the candy in the picture, don't you?

I call it 'magic candy'...that's because every time my doorbell rings, bars of the 'World's Finest Chocolate' magically appear in the hands of a soft-spoken, mumbling child asking me if I could help his or her school or church group.

And I always end up buying at least a couple bars of candy because I know that my kids have done, or will do the same thing, AND because, the 'World's Finest Chocolate' is really pretty dang good. And it must be a pretty good fundraising method because they've been around since 1949!!

With that being said...Texas Legislators...please listen, I think we might have a solution for the budget shortfall.
