    Today I was going through some stuff. When I was a teenager, my mum and dad loved country and western music. One particular artist they liked, and I loathed was Kitty Wells. Every weekend when I lay in bed late into the morning....even early afternoon, they would threaten that if I never got out of my pit, they would play the record until I got up. One particular track I hated was "Stand by your man", and I would race downstairs to turn off the record player !! I hated the album so much I eventually hid it in my younger brothers record collection were it remained hidden for years. When I turned 50, they had a family meal for me at a local resturant, and after I was presented with all my presents, my dad, who was ill with asbestosis by then presented me with another parcel with a big smile on his face. When I opened it, he had made me a framed gold painted disc, with a copy of the original label used by her record company, and a message that said "To Buggybill, my No.1 fan with best wishes from Kitty Wells". I put it up again on my bedroom wall, and with a slight tear in my eye, and a huge smile on my face, remembered my dear old Dad. God bless old fella ;).
