Shout Out Tuesday

Posted June 8, 2010

It's Shout Out Tuesday. Salute someone who has done a great job for you. Name 'em and fame 'em right here on this blog! Maybe it was the new kid who did a bang-up job mowing your lawn. Perhaps it was the picture framer who did a top notch job on your family portrait.

I'd like to start with my wife Cindy for an awesome chicken recipe last night. It was so tasty and very healthy. I would also like to give Cindy a big pat on the back for countless hours helping our daughter Lauren get ready for her September wedding.

I would also like to thank the guys in the accompanying photograph. Wes Lachot and John Plymale did an outstanding job mixing my new music CD this past weekend at Overdub Lane in Durham. They did a masterful job and were a lot of fun to boot.

What about your world? Who has made it a little bit brighter recently?

But for the troopers on the highway everyday, doing a job that most of us would not have..KUDOS to you..To the leaders of the pack, if you can actually make me believe that you don't live in a glass house, then hats off to you too.

    I would like to give a shout out to all those being impacted by the Gulf oil crisis. You are in the thoughts and prayers of the entire country. We need to all think about how different our summer would be if this were happening on our coast.

    I'd like to thank the dance teachers at Seven Lakes Dance school. Marcie Overcash is the owner and lead teacher. My niece Samantha has been dancing there for about 6 years and she has blossomed from an awkward ballerina (and I mean really awkward) into a beautiful and talented dancer. Samantha is so good she was picked to travel with Dance Theater USA this summer! The Seven Lakes staff put on a wonderful recital last Saturday (and even handled a brief power outage with grace). Kudos to Marcie and her staff!

    When my father passed away in March, my last-minute air travel plans to attend his funeral in Texas tanked due to a freak blizzard in the midwest. This happened after I had already arrived at the gate, through security and all that. It was looking bleak. I cancelled my ticket and grabbed my bags and caught the first car rental shuttle. That place couldn't help me so I walked across the street to National ... kudos to the clerk there who bent over backwards to put me in a car ASAP and get me on the road. I left RDU at 4PM on Saturday and walked into the 6-8 visitation at the funeral home in Houston at 6:55 PM Sunday. Big thank you to the clerk at National!

    Congratulations to my sweet Hot Rod for making the A-B honor roll and moving on to 8th grade. In a couple of weeks she'll be spending her first week at Camp Rainbow in Foscoe - the same camp I went to as a kid (you know where that is, don't you, Bill?).

    We are extremely proud of our 43 year old son-husband, father of two little boys- who began school at Wake Forest Univ. School of Medicine yesterday. In two years, God willing, he will be a physician assistant.

    Echo the shout out to Zippy (Plymale). He produced a CD of mine years ago. He's da bomb.
