One has to become increasingly creative to find unused names for her e-mail accounts, blogs, and profile names (on match, jdate, hdate, and the like). My first several choices for my blog name were already taken, so part of a fantastic song came to mind and voila www.chubbyoldgroundhog.blogspot.com came to be. I am constantly surprised by the people who have never heard of this song and/or do not recognize my blog name.
"Rollin’ down a backwoods Tennessee byway, one arm on the wheel,holdin’ my Lover with the other: a sweet, soft, southern thrill. Worked hard all week; got a little jingle on a Tennessee Saturday night. Couldn’t feel better: I’m together with my Dixieland delight.
Spend my dollar; parked in a holler ’neath the mountain moonlight; hold her Uptight; make a little lovin’, a little turtle dovin’ on a Mason Dixon night. Fits my life, oh, so right: my Dixieland delight.
Whitetail buck deer munchin’ on clover, redtail hawk settin’ on a limb, a chubby old groundhog, croakin’ bullfrog, free as the feelin’ in the wind. Home grown country girl gonna give me a whirl on a Tennessee Saturday night. Lucky as a seven livin’ in heaven with my Dixieland delight."
This is one of Alabama’s hits, and this song is especially fun on a Saturday night around 2 a.m. at Hole in the Wall in Buckhead. If you’ve never heard this song, send me your address and I’ll send you a copy because that is a “crying shame!”
On a slightly related note, I do not think I could date someone who could not appreciate this song. It’s just fun and simple and happy and always makes me smile. And I appreciate that. I’d love to know who is and is not familiar with this song….
