Song of the Day: Tom T. Hall, “I Love”

Country singer and songwriter Tom T. Hall was born on this day in 1936. Nicknmed "The Storyteller" because many of his songs told stories, he wrote twelve #1 hits and 26 more that reached the Top Ten, including his most famous song, "Harper Valley PTA." "I Love" reached #1 on the US and Canadian Country charts as well as reaching #12 on the Hot 100 in the US and #13 on the Hot Singles chart in Canada. It’s one of my favorites…

  1. My husband (just turned 70 to put this in time-perspective) went to an out-of-town grocery store with me a couple of months ago. He fancies himself quite witty and funny. 😉 The cashier and the grocery bagger were about 20, give or take. Hubs engaged them in conversation.

    Hubs: How are you fellows today?
    Cashier: Good. You?
    Hubs: Good. It’s a nice day after the cold spell we had.
    Bagger: I like days like this. Spring is on its way.
    Hubs: Know what I like?
    Both: No. What?
    Hubs: Faster horses, younger women, older whiskey, and more money. (Grinning idiotically)
    Bagger: HaHa (stricken, looking for a way out – hasn’t a clue that these are song lyrics)
    Hubs: (grinning idiotically)
    Me to the young men: He doesn’t get to go in public often… 🤦‍♀️
