"Work Your Fingers to the Bone, What Do You Get?"

This song came on my iPod this evening as I was coming home from work, and after my afternoon talk with Alanda about the state of the world and how our friends and family are all losing their jobs and their homes, I think this song needs to be shared with everyone right now.

I remember singing this - - LOUDLY - - in the car with my mom, dad and brother when it was popular in the 70's. The video accompanying the song is pretty simple, but the song says it all. This is the late, great Hoyt Axton singing "Boney Fingers."



We'll get through this, y'all. With friends, family and a little bit of humor.

I always liked this song. I haven't heard Hoyt Axton sing it in a very long time. My brothers and I used to sing it (very badly) to each other when one of us complained about having to help around the house.

I can just see you boys singin' that at the top of your lungs.

I sing that song all the time and my husband thinks I'm insane. Apparently his hoity-toity upwardly mobile parents did not expose him to such music. Their loss!

I can't imagine a childhood with out Hoyt Axton, CW McCall, Ray Stevens, and other singers of fun 70s songs.

Palin Offers Thankfulnesses
Alaska Governor Marks Thanksgiving


In order to celebrate Thanksgiving, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today issued what she called "my list of thankfulnesses":

The first thankfulness being that I'm thankful for this turkey, and also too for the metal funnel thingy that cut the turkey's head clean off while it was flapping its wings trying to get out and all. That was fun.

The next thankfulness being that I'm thankful that Levi is going to marry our Bristol, and I'm hoping also that we'll know soon what his location is.

Another thankfulness too being that I'm thankful for Sen. Ted Stevens, because compared to what he did and all it doesn't seem like a big deal if you tried to get some dumb old trooper fired.

My next thankfulness being I have thankfulness for our President-elect Barack Obama, and proudness, too, even though he probably is spending Thanksgiving palling around with Bill Ayres and Osama bin Laden and the Unabomber also.

A darned important thankfulness being I'm sure thankful that when the lawyers from the RNC came to take back all of that clothing they didn't check under Piper's bed. Good job, Piper!

And my last thankfulness, which I saved for last because it is the most important thankfulness, would be the turkey again also. I'm thankful that God created turkeys with so many tiny little bones in them and also too I hope Katie Couric chokes on one.

This is almost as good as "Never Been to Spain" and "The No-No Song!"
