It's pretty drippy out there today. The rain began sometime during the night and is expected to continue for most of today. But it's a gentle rain. This was the forerunner of it yesterday afternoon.

It looks pretty wild but it held off for us long enough to stop in at Beau Jack's birthday party last night.

He looks pretty good at 70, doesn't he? 

He proved to the crowd that he could still "cut a rug" with the best of 'em, too.

Just watching him dance tired me out.

So let's slow the tempo down a bit with three Texas singers performing a few years back.

The Flatlanders, particularly Jimmy Dale Gilmore, are a favorite of mine. Their rendition of the song "Have you ever seen Dallas from a DC-9 at night..." is great (title?).
I'm heading east back to MT tomorrow, looks like it'l be 4WD drive from Idaho on, snow and sub-zero temps.

I'm always happy to find another fan of Jimmy Dale. I once wrote to the producer of Austin City Limits that he ought to put a show together featuring Gilmore and Iris Dement.

What's the era of the Flatlander's tune?

That particular recording was circa 1990, according to YouTube.

Is Jack a car salesman.

No, a realtor.
