Happy Birthday to Willie Nelson — My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), the letter "W" / Thursday Two Questions —

[Willie Nelson at Farm Aid 2009]
[courtesy of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]

"W" is for Willie NelsonWillie is Mrs. Jim's favorite country-western song writer and singer.  A list of his songs is here, but there are so many that I didn't take time to count them. 
Happy Birthday to Willie,  he will be 80 years old next Tuesday, April 30. He was born in Abbott, Texas, in 1933. We were in high school together in different schools.  I asked Mrs. Jim if I were cuter than Willie was as we looked at his high school picture.  She said I was always cuter.

Mrs. Jim's favorite song of Willie's depends on the season, but tonight when I wrote this it was Crazy.  My favorite is To All the Girls I've Loved Before.

Below are five of Mrs. Jim and my favorites, all from YouTube with a search done on "Willie Nelson" (link to the search).  I say that but there is not one Willie Nelson song that we do not like.

City of New Orleans - Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow:

Monday Note:  !!! HAPPY EARTH DAY !!!

1.  I believe that God has ready for us life on the other side of that darkness. And for the pictured property over by our Post Office as He made us stewards of our earth and all that is in an on our planet.
2.  STEWARDS:We are stewards of God's earth, ruling over that which is not ours. "You [God] made humans ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under our feet: All flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas," Psalm. 8:6-8. (more of God's plan for us and His earth link)
3.  I am celebrating EARTH DAY over on my FaceBook page.
