Pete's Article April 1998.


"Virtual Country Songs" By Pete Bennett

Well, here it is, April 1998, it’s been a long winter and a lot of things have happened. My wife Doris and I sold our home in Kersey and moved to Butler, PA. in December. Our son-in-law and his father, who own Woodbrook Builders built us a new home here. We are now moved in, and it’s lovely. Another thing that happened is that the magazine I wrote for closed down, and all winter I have not written anything! Through a friend, I heard of this new publication that would be producing it’s first issue in April, so I contacted the editor and begged for the opportunity to have an article in the first issue, and he graciously agreed to print an article. It was then that I realized that I didn’t have an article ready to give him, so I drew on some of my hidden resources from the internet, and put together this article. Hopefully you will read it, and maybe even like it, and we’ll be off on another adventure together. I hope my articles will help you relax a little bit after a hard days work, and maybe even make you laugh. I don’t plan on them all being humorous, but then again, I don’t plan much! So, here goes...

Now, everyone knows how much I love country music and just the other day, I was surfing the net when I came across this list of what someone had dubbed ‘Virtual Country Songs.’ Well, they’re ridiculous, to say the least, but do you know what? They’re real! I recall hearing some of them, maybe you will too. Here they are, now sit back and relax a bit, like I suggested, and have a good chuckle!

These two convicts were about to be executed. The warder says to the one, “Do you have a last request?” The convict says, “Yes, I’d like to hear ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ one last time.” The warden says “OK, I think we can arrange that.” Then he says to the second convict, “How about you? Last request?” The second convict says, “Yeah, hang ME first!”

See ya next month, and in the meantime, why not visit me at
