I am watching Drunk History (a show my social science major son disparges....) and guess who is on the Nashville episode?

Grandma Grace's "Country Cousin" Porter Wagoner! about Dolly Parton leaving the man who made her famous.

Virginia told her she saw on facebook that great aunt Donanell's daughter Dona had a stroke and needed prayer. haven't found any mention of it yet.

Author Kerry Matson

Kerry Matson is a native and resident of Kansas City, Missouri, but it was time spent at his family's farm as a youth, where he developed a love for writing. Although he has been a writer for many years, it was the death of a friend during the summer of 2012, that prompted the writing of his first book, "Finding Faces in the Clouds: A Jump-start to Joy."
Kerry is excited to see where the journey takes him in the years to come and invites others to take the walk as well, seeking out the joys in the simple and "ordinary" things of life. His mantra is to make the best of each day and to celebrate being kind to one another. It will be worth the effort.
He is currently working on his second book, "Learning Hope."
