An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

Hello! My Name (is not) Johnny Cash

But he sure sounded an awfully lot like him! And it is the closest this side of heaven that I will get to seeing him in person. Now, my little obsession with Johnny Cash is maybe teetering on warping my children or at least driving them crazy, but I am sure enjoying it. Other people in my life have only fed and humoured the little passion with CD's, T-shirts, memorabilia, and then my Mom topped it all of by inviting me to a Johnny Cash reenactment (the kids got a kick out of that!)
It was at a beautiful park, and the weather was perfect. What a great night! My only disappointment was that there was no June~ I could have played the part, I sound just like her when the van radio is blaring.... Oh you big mouth woman.....

I lived in Branson, MO for a long long time ... It was during the time Johnny and his daughters were performing at one of the theaters there. One day in the grocery store I heard his voice behind me. I turned around and saw him just a few feet behind me. He was in regular old jeans and his hair was sort of a mess. I smiled at him and he smiled back. That was special.

Brenda, You are a star in my book now too!! I would have made a big blubbering fool of myself if I saw him behind me in a supermarket!!! Like I did while I was waitressing (my 4 day waitressing career) when I served "Heart"!!!!! I was so star struck that I could hardly speak and I was not really into their kinda music. Now I like me some Johnny Cash!!

Terri~ I have this vision in my mind of you as June along side "the not Johnny Cash" singing "Times a Wasting" and then "Jackson"!! Later on in the evening you two sing "If I were a Carpenter"!!! My favorites of theirs and I have a lot more on my MP3!! I would love to go to a JC reenactment !!!!!!!! What fun!!!
