Wuv, Twue Wuv -- posted by Sarah Grace

It's been a long time since I've listened to country music.  Some country music gives me a bad feeling, especially at night while in the car- it makes me think of dirty trailer parks and alcoholic fathers.  But once in a while, they come out with some real keepers.

Mr. Bradley from Diaryland turned me on to this song.  It was new to me, but now I love it!

This one, by Brad Paisley, is a favorite of mine.  He had me at 3:00- that line makes me want to fall in love right there.  If a man doesn't think I'm all that AND a bag of chips, then he's just not "The One."  I gotta be pursued... like my dad practically stalked my mother. 

My dad was living in Rhode Island and running for the RI senate, and my mother was living in South Carolina.  They met for the first time August 30th, at the Charlotte Coliseum in NC, during a chance encounter at a concession stand.  After two subsequent chance encounters that same day, they exchanged phone numbers.  Daddy went back to RI, and he proceeded to date Mom over the phone.  He sent letters, cards, and even Western Union telegrams!  One read: "The best part of today is that I'm one day closer to being with you.  Love, Him."  The day after he lost the election (thanks to my mother's prayers), he flew to SC for an extended weekend the first weekend in November.  When he came back later that month, he brought a diamond.  Twenty-one years and 8 kids later, they're still together.

P.S.  Mrs. Sarah and Mr. Billy, please don't make fun of these songs like you did Andy Williams's grammar and dentures!  *makes puppy dog face*
