    I wish I was in the land of cotton

    I wish I was in the land of cotton,
    Old times they are not forgotten;
    Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.
    In Dixie Land where I was born,
    Early on one frosty mornin,
    Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land....



    Headed to Charlotte (work is slow in VA, so I said 'I'll go anywhere you need me'...)

    There was a guy driving down a back road. He noticed a cotton ball along side the road. He thought nothing of it. However a mile later he saw another cotton ball.

    And sure enough a mile later he saw a dead cotton.

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    You wouldn't sing that song for long if you were pulling a 6 yard sack, down a double row, one mile long in September, in west Texas....

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Hi Here I am again.

    During WWII I spent a fair amount of time at Camp Pendleton, CA. I went out to get a chocolate shake. There was a new lady taking the orders. The guy in front of me said something like, " Hi, You are new. Where are you from?"

    She answered, "SSSoooooooouuuuuuuuuttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhh Caaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrroooooooooooooooooooollllliiii innnnnnAhhhhh.

    By the time she was through saying those two words, it was time for revile.

    I have probably thought of that a thousand times since. It always makes me want to go to South Carolina.

    Can you have nostalgia for some place you have never been?

    Enjoy,----------I did.

    Jim
