Bethany's 5th Birthday

Here’s a fun video from 2001 of Bethany’s birthday at “Mamaw’s House”. The highlight for me is when Bethany says “I’m gonna kiss Ga-ma Boo-er”. Robbie serves, as usual, in the role as comic relief.

FLASHBACK: Bethany Charis Shackelford - Birthday #5 on September 27, 2001 in Searcy, Arkansas at Mamaw's House (on Country Club Rd.) with the Wilks, Wornocks, Wryes, Shacks and "Ga - ma - boo - er" (Grandma Brewer)

New Heights Church - First Service at the Boys & Girls Club

I stumbled across these pics today - wow.  This is the first service that New Heights Church had at the Boys & Girls Club - February 12, 2006.

Finally, at long last, "My Country Song"

About 20 years ago, I dug down to my roots (that would be Arkansas, not Italy) and managed to "write me a country song". Then, several years ago, my brother-in-law JP Wornock (yeah, the one who was "a doctor in Drasco, Arkansas") got a rare video of me singing it sometime after a satisfying Christmas Eve dinner. I put on the thickest country accent I could manage and gave it a go.  Enjoy!  [note: if you have trouble viewing, you can go to my youtube page:
