How to Get "Likes"

Sunday, April 27, 2014


My goal is not to get “likes”, but I have discovered how to. If you don’t have a cute baby, grandbaby, puppy or kitten, just make a fool of yourself. Gladney has been in the height of our event season for the last 2 months and I have been asked to do several “out of my comfort zone” activities, capped off by my rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” at last night’s fundraiser in Austin.

Before I began, I retitled the song “Everybody Loves a Train Wreck”, the train wreck being me performing. Which brings us full circle: “likes” can be equated with train wrecks.

I must confess that I have enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone – modeling, singing, running a 5K. I’m ready to do it all again next year. In fact, I didn’t want to give up the mike last night. I offered to do an encore, but there were no takers.
