We Got Married in a Fever

Although Tugboat Dave and I seem to have a difference of opinion on who recorded the definitive version of Jackson, I'll be going there Saturday and scouting out Jane Fonda and Harrison Ford, just in case. I've not been there since I was about 14, and the high there is supposed to be around 14. However, I don't think it was this Jackson that Lee & Nancy/Johnny & June were singing about. All the same, I plan to dance on a pony keg if the opportunity arises. The rest of the week will be in comparatively bland Colorado. Maybe I'll drop by to say hello to Dr. Dobson while in "the Springs" as locals call it.

Okay, I think I can settle this. The definitive version of "Jackson" is actually the one performed by Johnny Cash and Miss Piggy on the Muppet Show.

Enjoy.

Dave - The long standing battle between the North and South has finally been settled. Generals Lee and Grant are dancing like a pair of lovebirds up in the clouds. I agree, this is the definitive version.

Aren't you supposed to be studying, my dear, and not watching YouTube?

I love "Jackson" as it reminds me of my mom and dad and driving to see my grandparents in Ohio. We listened to a lot of country back then - and I still like it.

I wasn't aware that Miss Piggy was a Yankee, but I guess I'm not surprised, what with the way she was always putting on airs and speaking French and stuff.

Oh yeah, studying. Yeah. Let me get back on that. Yeah.

This song is considered the greatest of all time by a famous cloning author. (cue Final Jeopardy Music)

Jill - People gonna stoop and bow (Hah!)

Bryce - Sounds like a riddle of the Sphinx. I hear that sphynx cats run feral there.

Gary - Good tune - holds up under any circumstance.

Emily - I plan to share a piece of my mind should I meet Dr. D.

Dave - I think Miss Piggy grew up on a farm in Arkansas but always had her heart in Hollywood with French pretension. I think that's why she was able to unite the Red and Blue states because she was high toned but never lost her roots. Hey, why isn't she running in '08?

now, now according to frank (oz that is): "(ms piggy) grew up in a small town in Iowa; her father died when she was young, and her mother wasn't that nice to her. She had to enter beauty contests to survive, as many single women do. She has a lot of vulnerability which she has to hide, because of her need to be a superstar."

thanks dave for the youtube link...how have I missed that johnny and ms piggy! any one know year that was made? johnny and the pig look so young!

have fun on the road!

Heavens, if you do meet up with Dr. Dobson say hello for me. I would so love to meet him, I think we would have quite a bit to talk about.

Kimy - Time took its toll of dear Johnny but Miss Piggy is ageless.

Mark - I have a few words I'd like to share with "Dr." Dobson. If Ted Haggard's out from his bunker, I thought I'd drop by with some meth and see if he throws it in the trash.

It ain't no Capitola Beach, but have fun anyway. Next time I'm up that way I'll let you know.

Scot - Next time you're up north let me know. Yep, with a high of 19 and low of 3 and snow flurries, this Jackson ain't exactly Capitola. I can't wait to tell my California weather wimp friends that they can no longer whine about it being "freezing" in SF. Freezing = temps of 32 Fahrenheit and below.

Dear Dave,

Your picture makes me laugh.

Love,
