Gospel Driven Disciples Honored with the
Versatile Blogger Award
Awarded by Tossing it Out
Once again the Gospel Driven Disciples has been blessed by an award. Lee, from Tossing It Out has chosen to award my blog with The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you very much Lee, and now for my acceptance speech… Not really! Kidding!
However the rules state I must share seven things with you. I got tagged a little while back and had to share, I think five things, and I am not sure any more. At any rate first of all, here goes, and second, if there is a repeated thing – and you catch it, just ask me to tell you something else to make up for it. I have no shortage of stories.
2. I have had the pleasure of meeting and having dinner with the great Mr. Freddie Hart of Freddie Hart and the Heartbeats. He is best known for his number one record, Easy Lovin’. I, however liked his “Hank Williams Guitar” and “If Fingerprints Showed Up on Skin, I Wonder Whose I’d Find on You” the best. He also did "The Wall."
5. I once pumped gas and filled the tank for Will Rogers, Jr. while working at a Texaco Gas Station in Diamond Bar, California. As exciting as this was, it was not as thrilling as the experience my sister had in San Jose, California one hot summer day. She actually served and sold an ice cream cone to the one and only Ernest Tubbs of Ernest Tubbs and the Texas Troubadours.
Mama Tried, Okie From Musgokee, Lonesome Fugitive, Branded Man, Silver Wings, Motorcycle Mama, If We Make It Through December, Legend of Bonnie and Cyde, Working Man Blues, Think I Just Sit Here and Drink, Poncho and Left, Fighting Side of Me, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, I'm Always on Mountain When I Fall, It's Not Love but Its, Not Bad, Big City, The Farmer's Daughter and thousnads more!
7. I have three times driven from coast to coast across our great land. The first time was in 1973 from Jacksonville, North Carolina to San Jose, California. The second time was in 1974 from San Jose, California to Beaufort, South Carolina. The third time yes was from Beaufort, South Carolina to you guessed it, San Jose, California.
Now, I am supposed to award 15 other bloggers and inform them of their award. So, we will know who reads my blog if you read your name and blog seven things about yourself!
I want to thank everyone who has helped me to achieve this great accomplishment. I thank of course Lee who awarded this award, my mother who had me, and my wife who puts up with me, all my loyal readers, and so on and so on and so on… Yes, I thank the Lord!
