are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
OOOH, a nice sad old song from 1949; you know how much I love sad old songs.
BONUS - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams, 1949
|"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" is a song written and recorded by American country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams in 1949. The song about loneliness was largely inspired by his troubled relationship with wife Audrey Sheppard. With evocative lyrics, such as the opening lines "Hear that lonesome whip-poor-will/He sounds too blue to fly," the song has been covered by a wide range of musicians.|

Happy Birthday Marines
Thank you so much, Rip!
