J’s Dad Was Married To A Woman From Lillehammer. I Liked Her

Posted in 5D-II, Free Liu Xia by Knutsvik on December 11, 2011

Saturday, 10th December 1011.

J’s dad drove a truck, just like my dad. he made moonshine, played old Creedence-songs on the guitar when he was drunk and was a duck hunter too, and he was married to a woman from Lillehammer who looked like Dolly Parton.

we used to drink his moonshine in the woods.

he caught us stealing his liquor once. he was drunk again, and told his son how he was way too young to drink and how he hated Johnny Cash, but I was old enough to drink and wouldn’t I like a drink.

then he played “Born On The Bayou”.

J’s dad was married to a woman from Lillehammer who looked a lot like Dolly Parton. really, I loved her.

      hehehe, weeeell, like I said, J’s mom looked a lot like Dolly-P, Silvia 😀

      (eaawhat? I was _young_ ;D )

      on a serious note; I was lucky enough to see Dolly live a couple of years ago, and … what an extraordinarily amazing musical talent she is. she played eleven instruments during the gig, and – at 60 – hit every note as clear and unforced as the finest tennessee whiskey. she’s not all fake boobs and showbiz wrapping, and I wonder if she would’ve been …. more respected as a musician in Europe if she’d toned down her personae… but then again; I don’t think she minds, bonita!

      ay, caramba – Viva, Silvia!
