HAPPY BIRTHDAY "JOHN BOY"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hopin' you have a big ol' ass-kickin' birthday (March 7th) down thar in that big ol' Lone Star state of Texas!!!!! Oooohhh boy, are you in for a treat!!!!!!
In honor of yer special day, me, Pa, Grandma, Grandpa, Mary Ellen, Ben, and Jim Bob have the grills all a goin' for a BBQ you'll never ferget. "Jim Bob watch that side of beef so it don't burn!" Sorry 'bout that. Where was I? Oh yeah, I remember now. We got beef, we got pork and we got chicken. Fanny and Flossie will be by with their blue ribbon winnin' potato salad and Harley has made a mess of his famous whiskey-eyed baked beans. (They wouldn't be famous without the whiskey in 'em.) Daisey's bringing the corn bread and fritters 'cause she knows them are yer favorite. Doc Willard and Reverend Hank will be by later to entertain us all. If you ain't seen their impersonation of Brooks & Dunn, you need to get out more, son. Even Sheriff Bridges is takin' the night off 'cause he don't want to have to arrest you on your birthday. That's right nice of him and probably smart too. Oh, almost forgot! Miss Emily is bringin' the cake but she wouldn't tell none of us what flavor it is. She said it was a secret. I'd be careful to try just a bite first 'cause she tends to ferget how much cookin' sherry she adds to things. (We think she nips while she's bakin'.) Now if all that ain't enough, we have one more surprise fer you. We all chipped in and got you tickets for the rest of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!! (You'll be able to compare the Doc and Rev's rendition of Brooks & Dunn's "Johnny Cash Junkie (Buck Owens Freak)" 'cause we got you front row standin' room only seats for the Brooks & Dunn show at the show grounds.) You don't need to worry about any other entertainment for the next two weeks 'cause the livestock show and rodeo don't end until the 22nd. Yee-Ha!!!!!!!!!! So, grab yerself a Lone Star and ride 'em cowboy!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday again, J!!! Hope you have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
