Small Town Southern Man – Alan Jackson

Born the middle son of a farmer
And a small town southern man
Like his daddy’s daddy before him
Brought up workin’ on the land
Fell in love with a small town woman
And they married up and settled down
Natural way of life if you’re lucky
For a small town Southern man

First there came four pretty daughters
For this small town Southern man
Then a few years later came another
A boy, he wasn’t planned
Seven people living all together
In a house built with his own hands
Little words with love and understanding
From a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man

Callous hands told the story
For this small town Southern man
He gave it all to keep it all together
And keep his family on his land
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
Made it hard just to walk and stand
You can break the back
But you can’t break the spirit
Of a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man

Finally death came callin’
For this small town Southern man
He said it’s alright ’cause I see angels
And they got me by the hand
Don’t you cry, and don’t you worry
I’m blessed, and I know I am
‘Cause God has a place in Heaven
For a small town Southern man

(Chorus)
And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
He was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man

XRAIL Systems

The NEW XRAIL System from RCI is an auto indexing loader for shotguns. Operating as a magazine extension for shotguns, it allows up to 23 rounds to be loaded without modifications your gun and no gunsmiting required.

XRAIL Systems are Xtreme Roth Auto Indexing Loaders for shotguns.  It is a magazine extension system for shotguns that will allow a shotgun to have extra usable rounds of ammunition.  An XRAIL System loads the same way you would normally load your gun.  Once the main tube is full, you rotate the XRAIL System to the next auxiliary tube and load.  You repeat until all tubes are full.   When you shoot, the tubes will automatically rotate back to the main tube as the ammunition is unloaded.  The XRAIL System is flexible enough to be “topped off” or if not needed, you do not have to fill the auxiliary tubes and just use the main tube like you would normally use your shotgun.

 Currently available for:

  • Remington® System:  Works on Remington® 870, 1187, 1100 12ga shotguns
  • Benelli® System:  Works on Benelli® SBE, SBE2, M1, M2, M2 tactical 12ga shotguns

Better Late Than Never

I wanted to post this update earlier, but I blew my 4Runner up last week and left the camera in the car.

TheNewt drew this for my Father’s Day card. 😀

Happy Father’s Day

I really had a great weekend thanks to DD and the Newt!

Awesome 16 oz. ribeye with bleu cheese and walnut butter that makes you weep like a child Saturday evening with friends, delicious shrimp bake Sunday afternoon with the in-laws, New York style pizza  and a few holes of Wii golf with the family in the evening.

I hope you all had a great weekend too.

The Dark Side of Morning

I just noticed that the lid on our coffee maker looks like the back of Darth Vader’s helmet.

Sal’s Chilean Style Hot Dogs

I’m actually well known for this with my friends. I saw it on a Food Network show, I don’t remember which one. It looked tasty and I filed it away for future use.

The very next weekend, I was at a friend’s son’s birthday. After grabbing a plate of food, I realized that I had all the ingredients for a modified version of the hot dog I had seen. After piling everything together I took my first bite.

I experienced a nice, salty crunch followed by the cool, tangy, sweet taste of the slaw and then a snap and burst of meaty flavor. It was weiner synergy. (Are you getting excited?)

Ingredients:

Hot Dogs (Your favorite brand)

Hot Dog Buns (Your favorite brand)

Cole Slaw (I prefer tangy)

Catsup  (You can use ketchup if you prefer)

Lay’s Classic Chips or similar (Don’t use ruffled or thick chips)

I prefer steamed hot dogs for that extra snap. Just add some water to the pot, make sure it doesn’t go above the steamer, then bring to a boil.

Toss in your dogs, turn off the burner and cover.

They’ll be ready in about 5 mins or so. Otherwise, nuke, boil, or grill them.

Put the dog in the bun, add catsup and top with cole slaw.

You can vary the amounts to your liking. 

I usually put the ketchup under the slaw, but DD said you wouldn’t see it in the picture.


Finally, top with crushed potato chips… Don’t be shy now.



Mmm… Enjoy!


I think the original had mayo, catsup, cabbage and chips, so this is just my recollection.

I know it doesn’t make sense, but please try it! The whole really is greater than the sum of its parts.
