Friday Song Returns

In honor of bringing back the Friday Song, I'd like to share a little something Wade and I have been working on. Now remember that Wade is only 4 1/4 years old and I'm no Jaga Piru. Ok, so I barely can move fingers to a few basic limited chords. But, that said, my wife has been going around humming this little tune we're still in the midst of creating. so it's kind of catchy. For some reason, we figure mainly through imaginination vs. reincarnation, Wade says he used to live in Egypt a long time ago and King Tut would tell him things. He has a book about Egypt and has seen the mummies at the art museum. This Egypt fascination has been going on for about a year now. (Hey, at least he doesn't make you call him Santa anymore and demand to wear his pint-sized Santa suit daily). We've only got one verse down and it's short. And, you'd probably have to hear it to really get it. But, i haven't posted for a while (due to extreme new job conditions traveling and getting up to speed on new sales opptys), so we'll go ahead and put it up with a remedial version of the tablature. Here it goes, ladies and gentelmen.

BACK WHEN I LIVED IN EGYPT (the first verse)
- by Big Howdy & Little Howdy #1

D Chord G Chord
Back when I live in Egypt, King Tut told me lots of things
Doot dee doo dooo ooh ooh, doo dee do dooo
doot dee doo dooo ooh oooh, doo dee do dooo.

D Chord G Chord
Kings and queens and crocodiles, along a river called the Nile,

D Chord G Chord A Chord
Hieroglyphics, Pyramids, King Tut told me, yes he did
Doot dee doo dooo ooh ooh, doo dee do dooo
Doot dee doo dooo ooh ooh, doo dee do doo.

Ok, so that's it. Not much, but cute to hear him sing it and hear Little Howdy #2 start to babble along (babble on? Baby lon? Babylon! No, that's a different song). And I like to do the doot de doo's. They are not Lou Reed doo doo dooh's. fyi.

We're not sure what path this song will take (funny, serious, nonsense, political, emotional,etc,) but it will be based on his thoughts and words about Egypt with maybe a little lyric flow creation assistance by dad. Apparently the next line might have something to do with "grapes". Someday perhaps what you just read will be the MP3 sampler and you will be able to purchase the hit song. Meantime, happy Friday. And, let's see some more Jaga Piru songs onthe board.

Calling All Kiss Fans.........

Or anyone interested in busting a gut. Watch tonight's rerun of last night's (damn I hate apostrophes - is that correct?) The Daily Show. There are some hard-hitting interviews with Kiss tribute bands that are not to be missed.

Fill in the blank

Via the good doctor, what word is missing from this CBS headline?

Run Don't Walk . . .

Don't be the last guy on your block to buy this. The word is out. This is his best effort since Graceland.

By the way, when the Graceland tour hit the Fox Theater in St. Louis, Howdy and I were in the very top row. It was awesome. The air up there, however, had a very strange odor. For some reason it reminded me of the bedroom JP shared with his brother during our high school days.

Joke of the other day

Where does the former Hooters waitress who lost her leg work now?

Joke of the Day

A Chicago family of Cubs fans heads out to shop for the youngest boy's
birthday. While in the sports shop, the son picks up a Cardinals
jersey and says to his older sister, "I've decided to become a Cardinals fan
and I would like this St. Louis jersey for my birthday."

His big sister is outraged by this and promptly whacks him upside his
head and says, "Go talk to Mother!"


"Yes, son?"

"I've decided I'm going to be a Cardinals fan and would like this
jersey for my birthday."

The mother, outraged at this, promptly whacks
him and says, "Go talk to your father!"

Off he goes with the Cardinals jersey in hand and finds his father.


"Yes, son?"

"I'm going to be a Cardinals fan and want this jersey for my birthday."

The father then proceeds to whack his son in the back of his head and
says, "No son of mine is ever going to be seen in THAT!"

Back in the car and heading home, the father turns to his son and says
"I hope you've learned something today."

The son says, "Yes, Dad, I have."

"Good, son, what is it?"

The son replies, "I've only been a Cardinals fan for an hour, and I
already hate you Cub bastards."

It could be. . . It might be . . .

Let's see if Andy's still reading this blog . . .
