Musical Monday!!!...Streetcorner Symphony by Rob Thomas

Alright, alright...I know what you're thinkin'..."Hey!  There's supposed to be some original content to this here Musical Monday thingy!"

I'm with ya Dawg...I just don't have any time right now to record.  GOODe news is that after this week I should be back in full bloggy swing and should be poppin' out more original content than Kate pops out babies.

SO...'til I can lay my fingers 'cross them strings and give you something to listen to, I'm gonna let my buddy Rob send you into the rest of this week with a little skip in your step.  I'll also reference an old post I did a few years back on Myspace, (I guess they still have that) about what this tune means to me.




October 3, 2006:




Anyone who knows me well knows that I have no desire to dance...except when I care to re-live the early 90's and do the running man for a laugh.  I am a true white boy with no physical rhythm.  I am no Justin Timberlake and I am far, far, far away from bringing sexy back. 


This is where my wife comes in to play...


The other night I come home from work around 10:30.  I'm grumpy, tired, not very sociable, and all I want is a beer, a TV, and some quiet time to wind down.  Cris beckons me into our living room with that little finger wave that usually means I'm in trouble again.  So into the living room I go, head down, and reliving the past 24 hours in my head to figure out what got me in trouble in the first place.  That's when she turns on the sound system and cranks up Rob Thomas' Streetcorner Symphony.   With a fun smile she grabs my hand and gets me to dance with her.


I was reluctant at first (remember the no rythm thing?) but after watching her swing and sway with laughter in her eyes I couldn't help but swing along.  Through the whole song we giggled and jiggled to the rockin' beat. 


We laughed and held each other close and then spun around like little kids.  We fell even deeper in love and enjoyed every minute of it.  She didn't make me dance, she made me WANT to dance.


On October 5, it will have been 10 years since we first got together as a couple.  We've grown up alot together since then.  We've been through very good and very bad times.  We went from two college kids with different paths in life to two very successful people with the same goal...to love and support each other no matter what.


I have been blessed with a woman who means more than life to me.  She is my best friend and my lover.  My heart still beats faster when I'm near her.  She makes me want to do great things.  She makes me want to laugh.  She makes me want to love.  She makes me want to dance!



...might I also add that just a few weeks after this post we found out that Cris was pregnant with Addie...great song!!!  :-)

Halloween Memorium...

Due to the furthering of my railroad education, I was unable to participate in the Halloween festivities this year, so we'll have to relive last year's celebration...trust me, there was enough of that leotard to last two years...

So, enjoy a refresh from my wife's blog.  Happy Halloween!!!

Musical Monday!!! Helpless

Time for another inSTALLment of Musical Monday!!! It's another throwback tune from a year or so ago. (Sorry, I'll record some new stuff when I'm done with this booklearnin' thing!)

Anyhoo...there was an actual study done on the usage of toilet paper. On average "Women spend more time (using toilet paper) than men, or approximately 32 months in a lifetime versus 25 months for men." (http://komar.cs.stthomas.edu).  Which explains why when us guys head to the head, we often discover that the roll has been called up yonder and we're left with nothing more than a cardboard tube to tend to our needs...yuck...

So here's my little homage to those of us who came to that conclusion a little too late...ENJOY!

Use Your Listening Skills!!!

I love my wife, I believe I have made that plainly clear.  I support her in every way I can.


Alot of my support is verbal.  I encourage her successes and work with her through her failures.  (I'm the only perfect one in our relationship...didn't you know that???)  I love telling her how beautiful she is, especially when she doesn't feel the same way.  Sometimes she hears me, sometimes she doesn't.


A while back we were standing on the front porch and while she was talking, I wasn't effectively using my listening skills as I was observing how badly our yard needed mowing after a good bout of rain had fallen in the past few days.  She had made the comment that she needed to start getting back into shape.  I immediately said the first thing on my mind. "Your grass is really growing"...She heard, "Your a$$ is really growing..."


You can imagine the immediate look I received when she spun around.  Luckily her listening skills kicked in and she stopped her hand mere inches from my face...

We get so caught up in everyday life that sometimes we don't tune into one another.  We call it being on the same wavelength.  She's saying one thing, I'm thinking another.  She has a great idea...I reply "Uh huh..." without even knowing what she said.  I summarize the need to mow the yard and she thinks I'm making a rude comment about her butt...which I really do like by the way...

I know exactly how this guy feels...

Musical Monday!!!

Sorry about the delay in posting.  School has really had me pretty busy lately.  Gettin' them good grades sure does take alot out of my creative time.

I've seen my wife's blog havin' all these themes on different days...i.e. Wordless Wednesdays, Tice Talk Thursdays and the like.  So I figured I'd break out the guitar and have my very own Musical Mondays!  I'll try to post one every Monday if I can, (between study breaks, of course).

Here's a throwback some of ya'll might remember from my early days on FB.  It's my little take on Jason Mraz' "I'm Your's" only this one is aptly titled "I'm Bored".  For those of you who haven't seen this, enjoy!

BORED

This was a particularly boring weekend.  Other than catching up on my Sons of Anarchy episodes thanks to my buddy Aaron and watching the Colts whoop up on the Giants, I was bored out of my skull.  I decided to document my boredom and share it with ya'll.  Enjoy...

Getting to Know the GOODe Ole Boy:10 Random Facts

Tonight I figure I'd just toss up a few random facts so ya'll can get to know this GOODe Ole Boy a little better.  Mama does a few of these and I've even learned a thing or two about her through them, so here goes...

1. I "chirp" my feet right before I go to sleep.

2. At one time I held belts in 3 different martial arts-Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Hap Ki Do

3. Mama says I play the guitar really well, but I can't read a lick of music.











4. I was in the marching band in high school...drum section of course, because I can't read a lick of music :)

5. I am unashamed of my faith in God, and His Son, Jesus

6. I love my in-laws...












7. I was the Cowardly Lion in our high school musical

8. I like to dress in costumes...





9. My wife made me burn that costume...http://www.goodenessgracious.com/2009/11/its-goode-life-yep.html

10. I would gladly give my life and everything in it for my wife and Miss Add.  I also have no shame when it comes to them.  If they make me feel like laughing, I laugh.  If they make me feel like crying, I cry.  They truly make me who I really am, and that makes this GOODe Ole Boy pretty proud to be me...

Well, that's a little about me...how about you?  Tell me somethin' 'bout yerself!!!

My Lil' Girl...

So it's been about a week since I've been able to put up a post.  I've been busy doin' alot of book learnin' and stuff.  This GOODe Ole Boy likes to crack a beer or two every now and again, but knows it's also good to crack a book or two on occasion.

Since I'm doin' some schoolin' I'm probably not going to post every day like I want to, and hopefully like ya'll want me to as well.  But fear not followers of all things GOODe, I'm still gonna be around for a while! After I get through with all this academical stuff I'll be back in the saddle tossin' up random videos of this GOODe Ole Boy's life!  Today, it's all about Miss Add, my young'un...

 Bein' out of town has had me pretty bummed lately.  I get all kinds of homesick when I don't get to see my two favorite ladies...


Ya see, they mean the world to me, and all I wanna do is be around them all the time.  They're pretty special and stuff.  Since I've been away, the little'un, has been sayin' how much she misses her daddy.  So, today I get a call from her Mama sayin' she just had to come see me.  That made this GOODe Ole Boy pretty happy!  

Mama's drivin' Miss Addie over 500 miles just to give me a hug, a kiss, and a Ning-A-Ning...(ya'll might know that as eskimo kisses, but Miss Add has her own name for it :)  Mama knew just what this homesick feller needed this weekend.  I might just sneak a kiss or two from her as well!  *blush*

Thanks to modern technology, Skype has allowed me to talk to Miss Add every night.  My little webcam even has a feature where Santa can talk to her too!  That is a GOODe thing, but can have its disadvantages too.  On one hand, when Miss Add talks to Santa almost every night, she tends to behave ALOT better for Mama the next day or so.  But on the other hand, when she sees Daddy on the computer, she'd rather talk to Santa...  I guess that's okay though, as long as one of us can make her act like a lady :) 

I just love watching her grow up.  She's the strongest kid I know.  She can have a 235 lb. man wrapped around her little finger even!  It's been that way ever since I first heard her heartbeat while she was swimmin' 'round in her Mama's belly.  I can't wait to see her tonight!  Gonna be one of the best weekends ever!!!  I better go get ready...

'Til next time, here's a video I did for Miss Add's birthday.  Just a small peek into how I feel about that little girl!

Just watch out for the pets...

We also gots horseshoes...

Ya'll are welcome to stop by and see the family anytime.  Just be sure and ring the doorbell!!!

Dippin', Rubbin', Chewin'...Whatever You Call It

A few years ago, my wife and I went to visit her grandma in the hospital.  On the way back we stopped at a Wendy's to eat, (I treat my women to only the fanciest of restaurants, but White Castle was closed).  After our fine dining experience, we hopped in the car and, like always, I popped dessert in my mouth.  That's what I call a big pinch of dip in my lower lip.  I started to pour out a water bottle I had just bought and my wife, the penny pincher she is, scolded me and said to spit in my Wendy's cup instead and to save the water that had been sitting in the sun for 30 minutes.  Since I couldn't argue with her logic, I agreed.  Fast forward about an hour into the drive...my wife wakes up from her after lunch nap and decides she's thirsty.  She reaches over and grabs her my Wendy's cup and takes a BIG OLE SWALLER!  Needless to say, the rest of the car ride home was a one sided conversation consisting of "I'm so sorry!"" repeated over and over.  Oh yeah, and she punched me in the arm alot too...

Now you would think that after that pleasant little episode I would have tossed out that can of chew with my newly bruised arm, but I still kept on dippin'.  In fact, I'm typing this thing out with one in my mouth...


I know, I know...irresistible, ain't I???

I know that GOODe Ole Boys, rednecks, hicks and hillbillies alike find chewing to be a favorite past time right next to corn hole and pigeon hunts, but I've also seen alot of them fellers missing teeth, as well as lips, whole faces, and even their lives on account of a little bitty chewed up leaf.  I don't want that to be me...neither does the love of my life or Miss Add.

I've tried Chantix and the side effects of that stuff was lovely, lemme tell ya!  The box said that it may make you want to kill yerself...but not me.  I just wanted to kill other people!  I figure that ain't such a good idea.

So, got any suggestions on how this GOODe Ole Boy can get the bulge out of his lip for good???

My Daddy...

So every once in a while this GOODe Ole Boy is gonna share with you a story about somebody in his life. Today's post is about my Daddy.



You see, he's a GOODe Ole Boy too. And up until recently he was a pretty stout, tough old feller who loved to have a ball. That was until about 6 months ago when he was cutting some brush out at the farm...

He had recently purchased some land and decided to clear out a few trees to make the pasture bigger. He went out on his own, chainsaw in hand, and went to level a long row of hedge apple trees. What he didn't know was, the reason they were in a row was because they used to be part of an old fence row many years before. As he was cutting into a tree, the chain hit a piece of old wire fence embedded deep in the tree. The chain literally exploded, sending shards of metal everywhere, including just above his Dad's right kneecap. He limped back to the house and took his pocketknife and dug out what he thought was just a small sliver of steel in his leg. Then he poured some peroxide on it, thinking it would be good as new. Now Daddy wasn't ever one to whine about a boo-boo or a scratch, and he had to be just about dead before he'd even let a doctor take a look at him. A month later he was there.

I got a call from Momma Goode one morning saying Daddy was sweating pretty bad and had a high fever for a couple days, but wouldn't go to the doctor. I drove out and pretty much drug him to the truck and then drove him to the hospital. That's when the doctor told us he had gangrene deep within the bone of his right leg. The doc said that in another day he'd be dead. The only way to save him was to take the leg. Momma Goode was devistated, as was Daddy at the news. Now for the bad part...

This all took place at a "teaching" hospital that will go unnamed for legal reasons. When they brought Daddy in, they put a mask on him to put him under, and as the doctor went to mark his leg for the amputation, he remembered the doc's cell phone ringing and said he had to take it, giving one of his "students" the pen and said "Mark his right leg, then roll him over and do the same." That's when Daddy went out...and the student rolled Daddy over and marked WHAT HE THOUGHT was Daddy's right leg...turns out old schoolboy didn't know his right from his left...as Daddy found out when he woke up...

To make a long story short, after they finally took the RIGHT right leg, Daddy sued the hospital and everybody in it. Last month the trial ended and the judge looked at Daddy and rendered his verdict. He threw the case out of court immediately...

HE SAID DADDY DIDN'T HAVE A LEG TO STAND ON!!!!

Now that you're thoroughly mad at me for such a sick joke, lemme tell you about my Daddy. Truth be told he loves to tell that joke and just like that there "schoolboy", Daddy has been known to pull a leg or two in his time, and would be proud of me for doing it to you.


Ya see, he's a GOODe Ole Boy just like me...just sayin'.

Fun With Flatulence!!!

GET READY!!!

I've finally done it...gone off the deep end.  I am now officially a blogger.  My wife over at GOODEnessGracious.com has urged, pushed, prodded, and even asked me to start my own blog.  I agreed, but under MY conditions.

Condition 1:  No "she-she-poo-poo" material...in fact that's the last time you'll ever see me saying "she-she-poo-poo"...dang it, I said it again...This is a blog written, recorded, and/or produced by a redneck for rednecks, hillbillies, hicks, and whoever can appreciate their culture.

Condition 2:  She has a gal's blog, or "Mommy Blog" as she calls it, so I'm doing a guy's blog, or "Daddy Blog" if you will.  But don't shy away if you're not a daddy...or a guy for that matter.  You may just get a kick out of what this GOODe Ole Boy has to show and tell.

She cordially agreed to my conditions, but with a condition of her own...the content must be PG rated.  This is a condition I can live with.  I have a pair of little eyes (more on her in future posts) that watch every thing I do, as I'm sure a lot of you readers out there in the blogoshpere do too.  So I promise to keep the content clean, fun, and as entertaining as I can make it...with one condition...Send me your stuff too!!!

I'm not as talented, coordinated, smart or purdy as my wife is, so I don't think I can toss up a daily (or hourly) post quite yet like she can.  So feel free to send me your GOODe Ole content, but remember, keep it clean folks!  I'm paying my 3 year old minimum wage to screen the content!!!  If she gives it a "Fumbs Up" I may just toss it on here for the world to see!
