This post is simply a fulfillment of my blogging101 homework – use a blogging prompt.
This is the prompt I chose – Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes.
“You load sixteen tons and what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt.”
It just so happens that this particular song Sixteen Tons was one that I included on the cd that I recorded for my daughters for Christmas 2015. Entitled, “Dad Sings Country,” the recording included 3 classic country songs. I got some friends with a recording studio to help me out, and I sang over pre-recorded tracks. I thought that this was a pretty unique gift, and I have to admit I was fairly pleased with myself. That is, until I brought it home for my wife to listen to. After the three tracks were over, with a barely suppressed laugh she said something like, “I think that cd might give the girls nightmares.” Well, so much for my country singing aspirations. I still gave the cds to the girls. Obviously, “Dad Sings Country” is a limited edition – they can at least use it as a coaster. Maybe next year I will try rap – “PeeMan Slays” or something like that.
My fifteen minutes is up – not fifteen minutes of fame for my singing – just fifteen minutes of blogging.
Until I find more words . . .The PeeMan
