Mrs. Reagan was buried today next to her husband "Ronnie". I saw part of the service... it was nice tribute to her. The garden is very nice, I have been there in person... it's about 40 miles from where I live. I had never been to a Presidential library before. I was surprised at how big it was. I guess I did not expect to walk through a retired Air Force One...

Wow! You're lucky to have 'experienced' being at the cemetery. They are always so inspirational.

Snappy... just to be clear, I wasn't at the actual service. I visited the Reagan library about a year ago and saw where our past President was buried. I saw the service on TV... I am not anyone in the world of politics and would never have been invited to this service; though unlike our president Obama, I would have attended it to show respect.

I realized that. That's why I had experienced in inverted commas. Just the fact you have BEEN to the cemetery at some point is amazing.

Patty Duke has died at the age of 69. She earned her Academy Award as Helen Keller! Rest in peace... you can always celebrate with your identical cousin!

Merle Haggard... Born and died on the same day, today he turned 79, he won't be a day older though.

"And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole
No one could steer me right but Mama tried, Mama tried" Classic country western.

Oh how I will miss the original sound of Merle. He and Willie have put out some great music together, of course with The Highwaymen. My son took me to see Willie several years ago for my birthday and even though I was in a handicapped spot I still thoroughly enjoyed his show. He put his show on in a relatively small town - we call it Hollywood - in mid-Nebraska, and his next show was in Denver - but he cancelled about a month of his shows after appearing here. For a while I feared I may have seen Willie's last live show. but the man keeps right on rolling - what ever he smokes - and his songs. Merle and Johnny managed to help those in prison feel like someone really cared about them. The good ones are all going to the Holy Land - what glorious sounds there will be!

The sound of the wild, but if there is no one there, does anyone hear their howls?

A true tribute Grayma... Willie has already jumped out there and gave his own tribute.

I do want to see him in concert... probably because he is one of the only singers I can imitate. I mean no self promotion in this. My #2 brother stopped short in his track at a family function when I started to sing without any music, "You were always on my mind"... as Willie sang it. He looked at me and said something similar to Cripes, you sound just like him (he used a holy name of two words in that place). That to me was more of a compliment than anyone would understand. I am #4, #2 always had the singing talents when we grew up. All four of us played the guitars at family functions, but only #1 & #2 sang... #3 always knew he was tone deaf and could not hold a note, I actually only did background music... I was young. By the time my voice reached it's range... family functions with the guitars had stopped.

Point is, country music is not my #1 music choice, but back in high school, I sure followed it and do love it... though I am more of a rock and roll person.
