Good News and Pimpage

She’s back!!!!! Yep, my wife made it home and she is safe and sound(ish?). She surprised me yesterday afternoon with a phone call from Chicago. Life is good.


I ran into one of my cousins, Johnny Duke, the other day and it turns out he has his own website now.
He is one helluva an artist and I would be a horrible family member if I didn’t take a second to point you fine people in his direction. He is a singer, songwriter and can play the dickens out of a guitar. He primarily plays country music, but he has been none to get down and dirty with a little southern rock and performs many songs with that “Old Time Rock & Roll” feel.
They’ve been known to tour all over the country and have opened for bands from Pam Tillis to Diamond Rio. If you have an opportunity, I recommend you catch one of their shows.

Good thing Mrs G is home! No more getting away with boy stuff, hee hee! Hurry up and get the dishes washed and your shoes out of the middle of the living room floor! Ha! Ha!

I checked out Johnny's site and bookmarked it. I'll show Jim when he gets home from work. I remember going to his club and they brought me a shot of something set on fire to our table (it was my 22nd birthday) that gave me a nice buzz. Yes, I got Jim to dance with me. Another time a ton of us went together. Eldon kept buying me shots to get me drunk, so I kept buying him the same in DOUBLE shots, so he got plastered, poor guy! We all formed a line dance that should have been caught on camera! Ha! Ha!

What a way to pimp your cousin. He looks like he has a very busy schedule. I will have to check him out.

Goody,
I saw him playing in a bar in West Tulsa a few years back. He's very good. Didn't know he was your cuz.

YAY! I am glad your wife is back ! I have probably heard your cousin play before and just don't remember since I am a country music freak . Well for almost a year I have listened to more bluegrass than anything since I am learning to play the banjo , which is coming along nicely. I hope you and your family have a great weekend !

Ah, Jerry you must have been at the nearly famous Westbound. :D

You probably have, Breazy. Have a great weekend too. :D

We should hear him. How about a podcast? P.S. Welcome home Mrs. Goody.
