Craig Woolard / Jackie Gore Reunion


This was better than a Beatles reunion.

In this exclusive photo news scoop from the 2004 Carolina Beach Music Awards presentation in the Alabama Theatre in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, former Embers lead singer Jackie Gore stuns CAMMY Awards co-host former Embers lead singer Craig Woolard and the entire world of Beach Music by walking on stage unannounced and joining him in the song "I Love Beach Music" and, believe it or not, the encore, "Faraway Places."

Woolard later joked to the audience, "When I first saw him come up I didn't know if I needed to put on a football helmet or something."

Heavy stuff.

Northern Lights

We don't get many displays of the Northern Lights here in Virginia, but I got an email from an astronomy buddy who suggested I run outside and have a look. This was the first aurora borealis I've ever seen, November 11, 2004.

Satellite Radio

I bought an XM radio
And now I'm in the know
With all the latest episodes
Of The Lowell Thomas show.

I get the latest traffic scene
From downtown Singapore
And I can find what weather's like
Over there in Kuala Lumpur.

Across the world I tune the news
With ease and not a care
But I hear something that sounds wrong
They don't like U.S. over there.

While Tokyo Rose plays all the hits
Let's hope this won't sound silly
I really miss those home town guys
My buds John Boy and Billy.

Get Well, Meow Meow

My daughter emailed me that she's not coming to visit ole dad this weekend after all. Her cat is sick. Here's my reply. -- Dalton Hammond

Dear Meow Meow;

I am sorry to hear that you have not been feeling well. Maybe you are starting your period or something. My girl friend started her period a few days ago, on the 1st, so she says she has a chance of having two periods in the same month this month just like a Blue Moon and how about that? I thought about it for a minute and then told her that if I know my Sweet Thing like I think I do why she can do anything she sets her mind to and next time could we just talk about it after we finish lunch?

She just looked at me like she knew all along it was a mistake to share something like that with me.
