  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 07/25/20, early AM:

  Good morning, everyone, Saturday morning is about to dawn and I don't want to miss a minute of it. There is lots to do, horses to feed and a trip to town for their bi-weekly supplies and a few other stops, then it's back home to the country where no matter what is going on elsewhere, it's quiet and serene, but never boring.

Have a blessed day and relax and just do whatever you want to do. It's your day, it's Saturday. Have fun and, for goodness sakes, find a place where you don't need to wear a mask.

      Thank you, Jimmy!

 
 


  From Me ('65) of NC - 07/24/20:

 
The coin shortage is from people wishing that 2020 was over.  
 


 From My Cousin, Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS - '77) of AZ - 07/25/17:

  GIGGLES! Thanks, Cousin Jim!

A Little Less Talk

Words and Music by Toby Keith and Jim Femino

Recorded by Toby Keith (b. 08 July 1961), 1993
 

I was getting kinda tired of her endless chatter
Nothing I could say ever seemed to matter
So I took a little drive just to clear my head
I saw a flashing neon up ahead
It looked like a place to find some satisfaction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

I paid the man at the door and pushed my way to the bar
Shouted for a drink over a screaming guitar
A drunk on a stool tried to mess with my head
But I didn't even listen to a word he said
I knew somewhere amid all this distraction
Was a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

Well she was fighting them off at a corner table
She had a longneck bottle she was peeling the label
The look on her face it was perfectly clear
She said somebody please get me out of here
The look she shot me through the glass refraction
Said a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk
A lot more loving
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
Get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
