My little Loretta Lynne

As most of you know, I can be a snob about some things : ) but wine isn't one of them. To my friends' chagrin (Hi Christina!) I've just never developed an appreciation of fine wine. I can't tell the difference between a $5.99 bottle and a $25 bottle, so why bother buying the expensive stuff? Anyway, I usually have a bottle of inexpensive white wine in the fridge to have a glass in the evenings. In fact, David and I refer to it as "Cheap-ass wine" as in "Honey, I'm going to the store, shall I get you a bottle of cheap-ass wine?" (Yes, this has been said in the presence my daughter. Go ahead and call Child Protective Services. I'll wait.) Well, last night she was in the bath, singing to her herself as she played with her horses. Now, since she was little, she and I have loved to make up our own songs, sometimes to the tune of our favorite Bluegrass songs. So as I listened nearby, I heard this:

"I got a brand-new girlfriend,
and I kiss her all the time.
But when I say I Love You,
she starts drinkin' Cheap-ass wine!"

I think she's got a future, don't you??

Actually, that's Willy Nelson's style. But yep, I think she's got a nak for it!

Very clever song for a 5-year-old (she's still 5 right? They stay one age forever when you're not seeing them all the time).

I love the "Days Left In Office" countdown you got goin' on there. Fricken HILARIOUS!
