Before I started writing novels, I was a music journalist. One of my gigs was writing a series on the stories behind famous songs. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, I thought you might enjoy the story behind “The Thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat.”
I cant even finish reading the article. Every time I try, I hear my father in my head, playing his guitar and singing this song to me in a fake nasally voice. Then I feel compelled to start singing it, and it is turning into a vicious circle. 🙂 Thank you for making me remember something great.
I was just playing it on guitar the other day…the chorus. I can’t do 22 minutes of the song.
Don’t feel too bad; sometimes I can sit through 22 minute of the song without laughing my ass off. lol
