Something Wonderful: Don't Blink

This one goes out to my mother, still running deep and clear in the midst of her 100th year.

"Best start putting first things first."

"Trust me friend a hundred years
Goes faster than you think
So don't blink"

Great song from a great album. I really like Chesney's stuff, pure country with a strange island rhythm feel.

First time I heard this I ended up in tears in the middle of a sporting goods store. At least this time I'm in my living room.

This one undoes me.

There's a lot of crappy faux "country" pop out there but Chesney is the real deal.

What a treasure to have your mother still at 99! My best to her and you.

I remember reading "Mansions of Memory" the first time. Every time I add something to my bulletin board....I think of your mother. Bless you both.

Theres another country song called 'You're Gonna Want This Back' by Trace Adkins that makes me cry every time.
