Have you ever heard of country singing leged Jean Shepard? Ollie Imogene Shepard (born November 21, 1933 in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, but was raised in Visalia, California near Bakersfield), better known as Jean Shepard, is an American honky tonk singer-songwriter who was a pioneer for women in country music. Shepard released a total of 73 singles to the Hot Country Songs chart, one of which reached the No. 1 spot (A Dear John Letter). She recorded a total of 24 studio albums between 1956 and 1981, and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1955 and now is in the Grand Ole Opry Hall of Fame. After Kitty Wells' 1952 breakthrough, Shepard quickly followed, and a national television gig and the Opry helped make her a star when few female country singers had enduring success. That first hit, "A Dear John Letter", a 1953 duet with Ferlin Husky, was the first post-World War II record by a woman country artist to sell more than a million copies. (From Wikipedia)

The last great voice on the radio of my youth has passed. Jean Shepard and Scott Muni have opened the door and invited Ralph Kiner in for a chat. A part of my life for 52 years, and will be missed by all Met fans. Sleep peacefully, Mr. Kiner. We love you...
“I’ll Take The Dog” – Jean Shepard and Ray Pillow A divorced couple straight from the courthouse are dividing up their possessions, but can’t agree on who gets custody of the dog. So instead they decide to get back together. This duet cracked the Top 10 in 1966, making it Pillow’s highest charting single.

An episode from Jean Shepard with cussing in it.
“For the Law Came bY Mo$es but Grace and Truth by Jesus Christ” St John There’s a Reason they call it the “NEW” Promise verse the OLD promise, as in OLD… i'm an 8th Day Adventist and Keep the Feast of Tents because the Old Promise says to keep it “Forever” and Zechariah 14 teaches it will be required of Gentiles of all Nations in the New Xristi Millennial Order” New Promise xX(M)Oo just making a scholastic and sarcastic point so try and follow me: Why do some people dare call themselves Christians and yet bash *** with Romans 1? But never get around to the point in Romans 2? Silly Monkey, he’s talking about you: “DuMmY!” Red Foxe “For thou art inexcusable… that judges another, in that thou does the same thing” St Paul Romans 2:1 7th Day Adventist ~ While the “smart one” got it the first time (The Great Disappointment) there are those who still hold to the teaching of the Farmer: William Miller. But i will give him credit for one thing, after all, he is the only Prea ...
BACK home!! Had a good time in Nashville the Grand Ole Opry ain't the same a lot of the older ones have passed on but the ones we did see like Connie Smith, Jimmy C Newman, Ray Pillow, George Hamilton IV, and Mrs. Jean Shepard they still got it. For the new ones they were good to Eric Paslay, Jimmy Wayne, Lennon @ Maisy if your wondering who they are all u have to do is watch the TV show NASHVILLE they play the daughters of the red head and the mayor I foget there names lol, and ofcourse the main attraction Carrie Underwood which sounds and looks better in person lol. Then my favorite the Grand Ole Opry Square Dancers who were awesome as usual.
Music really is the best way to escape...what's your favorite "escape" music??
"She rebelled against recording pop. Her heart was in country music but her voice was just too good to emulate Kitty Wells or Jean Shepard. She fought 'em alright, she fought 'em hard. But in the end, Owen Bradley knew what direction to take her. When she started selling records, she stopped fighting so much"

It was nice to see some of those country legends tonight.Bill Anderson, Jean Shepard and Jim Ed Brown. Also saw comedian Henry Cho and some other musical acts. But was THRILLED to see The Band Perry and Carrie Underwood. Uploading some pics, stay tuned.
The Opry was awesome! Rick loved the "seasoned" entertainers while I loved The Band Perry and we both, of course, loved Carrie!

With great regret we must cancel the fireworks display tonight. Our lovely Delaware River is running too high to safely tug the barge and anchor for our show. Next weeks forecast shows little precipitation and we anticipate the river to be at a level that is safe for us to operate.

Ludlow Kissel and the *** Bomb that Struck back by Jean Shepard ... Find it and read it... Trust me. Best 4th of July writing ever.
Jay you might convince some and or most people that you are "Basquiat" but...c'mon...please stop comparing yourself to Jean-Michael..there can be no comparison.

Sounds good but stop comparing yourself to Basquiat please..tryna make $$ off of JMB name.

The Benicia Herald Review: C.C. Civic’s ‘La Cage’ loaded with fun Theater review by Elizabeth Warnimont Special to The Herald CONTRA COSTA CIVIC THEATRE of El Cerrito is currently staging “La Cage aux Folles,” the funny and heartwarming story of a nontraditional family that must re *** its values and expectations when son Jean-Michel (Daniel Quezada) decides to marry the daughter of a reputedly intolerant politician. Peter Del Fiorentino is terrific as drag queen Albin, the lead role and key to the success of any “La Cage” production. Del Fiorentino is confident and sassy and has the requisite diva personality down. Dan Kapler is strong and charming as Albin’s straight man — if you’ll excuse the expression — counterpart George, owner of La Cage aux Folles, a drag nightclub. And the dancers! One would think this troupe of “Cagelles” came to audition together as a group, they are so well tuned to each other, and comfortable and lithe in all of their costumes (by Lisa Danz). The ...

I love his duet Dear John Letter with Jean Shepard!
OK seriously don't bad mouth a police officer that was doing his job. It was sad to see a Rottweiler being shot and killed, it broke my heart. The owner knew what he was doing he put the dog in the car because he knew he would not have positive control of his pet. When the dog jumped out of the car and attacked the officer he has the right to defend himself.
David played for Jean Shepard on the Opry for 19 years, hearing Jimmy Dickens say "what else can I do while I am down here"! I immediately thought of him when I read this. However.whatever works! LOL!!! :)

Just put a deposit down on the most adorable female Shepard mix, only six-weeks old. Promise to post a photo of the the two finally meet face-to-face!! This will be her first!!
Here, in the heat of July, my life is sizzling in so many, many ways -- more than I can go into here -- but first and foremost let me bid farewell to June and its extraordinary gifts: the marriages of beloved friends Alexandra to her dear Jesus, as well as Ian to the lovely Irina. And huge thanks to Irina for sponsoring the tremendous workshops of Suhaila Salimpour, to Mark Balahadia for sponsoring the informative and challenging Leila Molaei workshops, and to Ranya and Anasma and the hard working, talented staff, teachers, and performers of the Theatrical Bellydance Conference. But most of all, deepest thanks to the devoted, brilliant, and sublime cast and crew of Blood on the Veil, which closed just one week ago on June 24th. Elizabeth Free: what can I say? You have been the backbone of this show since its beginning, whether you are stage managing, running the box office, or shaking your groove on the stage -- you are awesome and I am honored to have you as a friend and colleague. And then the divine Mi ...

We do all love and respect you Miss Lorrie...on your birthday and everyday, for always.

The state of Oklahoma has given us so many great country artists and several Country Music Hall of Fame members among them; Jean Shepard, Vince Gill Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, and more. Our thoughts are with our friends in Oklahoma where many suffered great losses when deadly tornadoes ripped through the state earlier this week.

Went on vacation with sister Elmyra. Stayed the 4th at Oglesby, IL. Then went to Nashville, we ate that the Opry Mills mall and then went to the Grand Ole Opey. Saw John Conlee, Ricky Skaggs, Tyler Farr, Jean Shepard, Jimmy Dickens, Jesse McReynolds, Jaida Dreryer, Stever Wariner, George Hamilton IV, Connie Smith, Kelleigh Bannen, Jim Ed Brown, Jan Howard, and Rodney Atkins. It happened to be the 87th birthday of the Radio Station so they had a big cake (we didn't get to eat it)

While on my walk, I'm going to leave this little gem for commentary. In recent weeks, people have approached me about doing things that should make me all sorts of $$$. However, they have rose-colored glasses on and they don't have to do all the scutwork whereas I'll be the Little Red Hen, as per always. Also, bitter experience has taught me the return is NOT worth the effort. Here are the latest crop of suggestions I've been hit with. 1) Write a book. Yes, I've a ton of stories from my life experiences. Whether delivering a pizza, inking a comic-book, or refereeing a wrestling match, I usually have a story about it. Some have wanted me to write satire of those experiences and publish it as have Jean Shepard, Garrison Keillor, Chris Johnson and others. Sure, I can stop my art career, spend most of my waking moments typing up stories from my single-digit youth, early adulthood to now, but is it WORTH it? Not so much getting the book published, but will it sell??? Let's say I have a thousand copies ...
yes, and I like that they still have Connie Smith, Jean Shepard, Jim Ed Brown, and Whispering Bill Anderson on regularly.

I live close to one of the only intersections where you can't turn right on red after a stop. I had my grandson with me the other day and went through this intersection and turned right on red. I expressed my regrets about forgetting that I couldn't do that. My grandson said 'That's OK. The policeman behind you just did the same thing". I asked him if the policeman's blue lights were on. He said " yes...no...yes...no...yes. " The policeman came to my door and looked at me and said, "your eyes look red. Have you been drinking?" I said No I don't drink, but your eyes look glazed. Have you been eating doughnuts? He gave me a very expensive ticket. He was nice about it though. He told me to have a good day and then gave me the "peace" sign. After he turned his back, I gave half of it back to him. As told by Jean Shepard at the Grand Ole Opry last Friday night.
