April is National Mathematics Education Month.
Here's a test: Take three apples from five apples and how many do you have? The answer: three ('cause that's how many you took!)
Now that you're already aggravated with me, you'll be glad to know that I won't be here this weekend. ;)
Barry Walsh has convinced me that I must meet his friend, Kacey Jones - and she's going to be in Laurel at The Reserve tonight. I was by myself this weekend and up for a road trip, so here I go again...
The show is entitled A Cowgirl, A Diva and a Shameless Hussy. You've probably sung along with many of their songs before: "Angels Among Us" (recorded by Alabama) and "Jones on the Jukebox" by "Cowgirl" Becky Hobbs; "Two Pina Coladas" and "It's Your Song" (recorded by Garth Brooks) by "Diva" Benita Hill; and "Never Wear Panties to a Party" and "Every Man I Love is Either Married, Gay or Dead" by "Shameless Hussy" Kacey Jones (former lead singer of Ethel and the Shameless Hussies). Jones is also Royal Minstrel to the Sweet Potato Queens and a frequent guest on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion.
So I've packed the good camera and the iPod this morning and I'm off. I plan to stop at every flea market, thrift store, antique shop and roadside interest from here to Laurel. I won't be back here until Monday morning. If you miss me much, I may pop in on Twitter. (And I'll be posting all the pics on Flickr too!)
