Nashville Meets Small Town Texas
If I had lived in Nashville in 1957, I might have gone to the Grand Old Opry on a Saturday night. If I'd lived in small town Llano, I might have put on a western shirt and taken in a movie at the fine LANTEX theatre. This past Saturday night, I got to combine both outings. I put on my cowboy boots and joined quite a crowd of locals at the Lantex for an Opry Evening that included 81 year old Stonewall Jackson. He sang some of the hits that put him on the charts back in the fifties in Nashville. I nibbled my popcorn in the old theatre seats that were mostly occupied by the very folks who sat in them as teens in the 50's. What a hoot!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
