You Load Sixteen Tons . . .

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.”

IMG_0927It 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
