**YESTERDAY. After publishing 2 blogs, I drove everyone to Wooster for a 

dermatologist appointment and then to Walmart where I purchased my gluten 

free bread at over $5 a loaf and Great Value Coffee, the Walmart brand instead of

my regular Folgers. I hope I don't regret buying this cheaper coffee because 

sometimes the generic brands are hard to stomach. 

After driving back to the house and unloading the mostly grocery items, I 

prepared and ate my nightly salad while watching 'Cops' on TV, then my prayer 

and to bed. 

**TODAY. Besides publishing this daily blog I working on right now (5:03 AM 

9/6/2017 EDT), I need to publish a postcrossing blog about a picture postcard

I sent to someone who lives in Taiwan, produce at least 1 video and some other

tasks that I can't think of right now. 

The weather forecast calls for high and temperatures of 65° and 45° with 

scattered showers today and tomorrow. We have had at least one downpour in 

the last 2 days, but it hasn't been enough to turn the brown places in the yard to

green. I'll go outdoors today to pick more of the ripe roma tomatoes. I've given

plastic quart bags of roma tomatoes to the mailman and trash man and still have

too many to eat. I won't let them rot, so if nothing else, I'll place about 10 in a 

plastic quart bag and place them near the front and place a sign that reads free. 

I need to purchase about 6 more bags of regular black mulch to cover the pearl 

black mulch in the southwest corner and front flower beds and to begin planting 

the flower bulbs. The places in the yard where I've sprayed weed killer about 1 

week ago is where I now need to sow grass seed and I hope, weather permitting,

I'll have time to do that today.


**I told you in a previous blog that my Father liked country music, Mother 

growing up and going to church every Sunday liked hymns. He would hum along 

to the words of Hank William's song "Jambalaya (On The Bayou)", released in 

July 1952 when I was 9 years old. As a teenager I liked songs popular at the 

time for my age group, but later on I learned to enjoy country music. My all time 

favorite country music singers and their songs I like most are Tammy 

Wynette, "Stand By Your Man," Faron Young, "It's Four In The Morning,"

"Martina McBride, "Independence Day" and George Jones, "He Stopped Loving 

Her Today" considered by most to be the greatest country song of all time. I 

remember my Uncle Paul and I out drinking one night and he was upset because

he had paid a good sum of money to buy a ticket to see George Jones perform at

Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, Virginia about 25 miles south of Harrisonburg on

 U. S. Route 11. That was a time when George was known as George 'no show' 

Jones because he had become to drunk to get there. 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"George Glenn Jones was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He 

achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best 

known song "He Stopped Loving Her Today", as well as his distinctive voice and 


Born: September 12, 1931, Saratoga, TX

Died: April 26, 2013, Nashville, TN

Children: Tamala Georgette Jones, Jeffrey Jones, Bryan Jones, Susan Jones

Spouse: Nancy Sepulvado (m. 1983–2013)."

"Nancy Jones is convinced that God sent her to George Jones to save the country 

legend from himself. 

George Jones’ Widow Recalls His Last Words as a Conversation With God.

By Gayle Thompson April 28, 2015 1:00 PM.

Country music fans all over the world mourned when George Jones passed away 

on April 26, 2013. But certainly no one felt the loss nearly as profoundly as his 

wife of 30 years, Nancy Jones, who recalls the final moments she spent with her 


For a few days before his death, George Jones lay in a hospital bed, suffering 

from complications from a respiratory infection, unable to speak. But just before 

he passed, as his wife was conferring with a doctor at his bedside, the country 

legend spoke.

“We were standing at the foot of the bed, and George just hadn’t said nothing, 

and all of a sudden, he opened his eyes, and I was fixin’ to go toward him, and 

the doctor kind of held me back, and George said, ‘Well, hello there.’ He said, 

‘I’ve been looking for you,'” Nancy Jones tells Nashville’s Tennessean. “He said, 

‘My name’s George Jones.'”

Within moments, the 81-year-old was gone.

“He closed his eyes, and that was the end of it,” Nancy Jones explains. “So, in my 

heart, I know he was talking to God.”

I'm not a consriacy theroy advocate except that maybe Lyndon Johnson and Lady

Bird wanted to become residents of the White House and paid someone to 

assissanate President Kennedy from the bank, but I believe there's more to the 

story concerning George Jones,' "He Stopped Loving Her Today." (written by 

Curly Putman and Bobby Braddock). 

"Country superstar Tammy Wynette, who died at home under tangled 

circumstances on April 6, 1998, had become hopelessly addicted to powerful 

painkillers, primarily Demerol, Dilaudid and Versed, according to a controversial 

new book by one of Wynette's daughters."


Tammy was George's 3rd wife who were married to each other from 1969-1975.

It was like putting a dog and a cat in a cage, fighting all the time. Yet I believe 

they always loved each other, Tammy singing songs like 'Stand By Your Man" 

and then "D. I. V. O. R. C. E." when they divorced. I also believe that George's 

words in his dying bed were not to God, but to Tammy. And George, knowing that 

Tammy's drug addiction would eventually take her life sang the song that he 

silently dedicated to her, "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
