Dierks Bentley has a song out now called 5-1-5-0. Normally I wouldnt know this. I am not a huge country music fan. I like country music and I sure as hell wouldnt turn down a chance to see Tim McGraw in some tight fitting jeans but when I am driving I usually listen to CD's or a rock station. For some reason, the radio station in the truck is stuck on a country station. And I mean stuck, it wont move off of US 99. All of my pre-set stations are gone. When I try and reprogram them, they automatically go to US 99. And this song 5-1-5-0 is on constantly. Everytime I get in that truck that song is playing. I am taking this as a sign.
My husband was a huge country music fan. He wore the cowboy boots, he wore the cowboy hat. He took me to Nashville for our honeymoon for Petes sake. (although I did manage to persuade him to head to Memphis after a couple of days) Beale Street and Printers Alley much more my speed. LOL. He tried to foster a love of country music in our daughter by buying her a Garth Brooks CD at the age of two. I countered by getting her Toys in the Attic by Aerosmith. We both lost the musical debate with her as she is firmly entrenched in screamo and punk music now.
As for why I think the radio is stuck on US 99, is that Keiths ashes are normally in the backseat of the truck with one of his cowboy hats. I took his ashes out shortly before Fathers Day and have not returned them back to the truck. They are still in my kitchen. I think this is his way of saying put me back in my truck! I blame widow brain for why I have not done this yet. Most days I am lucky to get out of the house with both shoes on, much less carry a box of ashes with me. So tonight after running errands and doing family stuff all day and hearing that damn song for the umteenth time I have taken his ashes and put them right in front of the door. Tomorrow morning they will go back to their righful place in the backseat of the truck.
Why not do it now you say? Well my front light burned out and its dark outside, and with my luck being Friday the 13th and that stupid song going nonstop in my head, I would trip and fall and then the ashes would be all over the front yard.
Thats the making of a good old fashioned country song right there. LOL
Fingers crossed that once he is back in his righful place I can go back to listening to something other then a song named after a physchiatric hold. LOL
