Just a Quick Sunday Post

I'm still tired from my road trip so I'm slobbing around the house in sweatpants and my nightshirt -- definitely a fashion statement on my attitude toward the world today. My good friend and very dear blogging buddy who has been with me almost since the beginning of this blog, Joy, called and we yakked about life, the universe and everything as usual on the occasions when we talk.

I'm going to get in the shower soon and go get the newspaper and maybe pop by to see Lynda and Mike before I get to work on another project or two. Then again. I might just vegetate.

On my trip I alternated radio stations between oldies and country music stations -- whichever came in clearest out in the boonies -- and one song seemed to keep coming up on the country stations. I thought it fun and liked the sentiment because it fits with my philosophy well and checked for a video when I got home. I even found one with the lyrics and that's when I realized why it's so popular here in Buckeye country. I hope you enjoy it!!!!

This old man and me,
Were at the bar and we
Were having us some beers
And swapping 'I don't cares'

Talking politics,
Blonde and red-head chicks
Old dogs and new tricks
And habits we ain't kicked

We talked about God's grace
And all the hell we raised
Then I heard the ol' man say:
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

He said "I fought two wars,
Been married and divorced"
What brings you to Ohio?
He said "Damned if I know"

We talked an hour or two
About every girl we knew
What all we put them through
Like two old boys will do.

We pondered life and death.
He light a cigarette.
He said "These damn things will kill me yet
But God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"

Last call,
It's 2 AM.
I said goodbye to him.
I never talked to him again.

Then one sunny day,
I saw the old mans face
Front page obituary,
He was a millionaree

He left his fortune to
Some guy he barely knew,
His kids were mad as hell
But me, I'm doing well

And I drop by today,
To just say thanks and pray,
I left a six-pack right there
On his grave and I said:

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. "God is great, beer is good and people are crazy!" Love that! :)

    Btw, I hope you get some rest and enjoy vegetating in your sweatpants and nightshirt. The way it's pouring outside, I think I'll take a hot bath and hop into my jammies. Some chai tea and a little yakking with a girl friend might be in order. :)

    Happy Sunday!!

  2. So, did he inherit the money? If he hadn't read the paper, would he have known?

  3. I never, ever thought I'd see God and beer in the same sentence....LOL

  4. Glad you like the song. I heard it and laughed. Sounds good!!!!

    Annie: How do I know? I didn't write it. I assume so.

    Judy: "God made beer because He loves us and wants us to be happy." -- Benjamin Franklin

  5. We did have a good chat didn't we? We covered a lot of territory alright. Hope the rest of your day was great. Have a good week sweetie...Hugs, Joy

  6. I loved this. Such a perfect, lazy day, Sunday song. Thanks, Kay!

  7. Those lyrics remind me of why I have always liked country music. The music of life lived.

  8. People are definitely crazy.
    And God is great...and beer is very, very good. :)
