I attend a couple of meetings regularly, along with a weekly Bible study with a few close friends. It seems like the topic always comes around to being authentic, and being vulnerable, just as it did with @hannahroyceco at @cm_oklahomacity.This morning at @g2okc we were encouraged by @ryanwellsflow and @techsmartertom to post something not many people know about us: I follow a plant based diet, but I'm not a vegan. I will very occasionally eat some meat. Although I've been involved in the grain business most of my life, I've recently cut out most all of them from my diet. I once invested in a raw vegetarian restaurant and got an expensive education in that. I like to read but get distracted easily by social media. I write some poetry, especially Haikus, occasionally. I dabble in a few art forms - altered books, cut and paste, metal art, assemblage and mixed media, and recently, Barn Quilts. I love many types of music. And although I'm a Christian, I don't care much for contemporary Christian music. My favorite hymn is "How Great Thou Art." I've attended a Django Gypsy Jazz festival, several Bluegrass festivals, Old Time Fiddle and Western Swing festivals, The Bob Wills festival in Turkey, Texas, and Jazz banjo festivals. I tried to play a trombone, but was a failure at that. I usually drive a Prius. I learned to drive by driving a small tractor and then a Studebaker pickup in my grandpa's pasture., I dry my clothes on a clothes line a lot of the time, I have hugged a few trees. I am a Democrat. I have protested in front of a government building and at the entrance of an air force base. I have smoked a few cigars, never a cigarette. Growing up in the 60s and going to college in the early 70s, but I've never smoked marijuana, although I did drink my fair share of beer and whiskey for awhile. I married my High School Sweetheart 46 years ago. 3 children, 6 grandchildren, 1 greatgrandson. I like paisley patterns. I prefer Wranglers over Levis, but I've been wearing some sort of skinny jeans lately.
My top 5 strengths in Strengths Finder are: Connectedness, Input, Intellection, Adaptability, and Learner.
I'm still keeping many secrets from you.
The great Bob Blair came down from Canada and played for us today at the Texas Steel Guitar Association meeting. Bob is a regular at the Steel Guitar Jamboree non-pedal showcase. I enjoy seeing and hearing him each March at the Jamboree. Today we heard everything from Bob Wills to Ray Price to Canadian folk songs on #dobro. #steelguitar#dobro#bobwills#rayprice#tsgajamboree
Country swing anyone? I love the record label. Flying Fish Records was a record label founded in Chicago in 1974 that specialized in folk, blues, and country music. In the 1990s the label was sold to Rounder Records. Flying Fish distributed Blind Pig Records and Rooster Blues. #flyingfishrecords#buddyemmons#bobwills
