I never knew this. RIP Glen Campbell
nor did I. BTW as much as I carried on about not enough attention to his life and death, we did have another one late yesterday. One of the radio stations we like to listen to, had time devoted to his music. I only heard about 10 minutes of it, but was still happy to hear that much. Now I have to go through our CDS and see if I have one of his. I am sure we do.

Both my Mom and Dad (who have both passed away) loved Glen Campbell's music. I recall they had an album with 'Wichita Lineman' on it. Certainly one of the best country singers of all time.

A current Associated Press release stated Glen was buried in a private ceremony in his hometown of Delight. Geeez

our paper had it right, like you said. They did the editorial saying he was born in Billstown, but everywhere else you see "Delight" did he, maybe grow up in Delight?

No. I don't remember for sure but he may have gone to school in Delight. I don't remember if Bills/Billstown still had a school when he was a kid. If not, it had consolidated with Delight.

Still is interesting isn't it? Hubby read the same one you did about the private service and his being born in Delight. I guess that proves we shouldn't always believe what we see, especially when connected with the media.

I hope everyone safely saw the eclipse. My maternal grandparents were farmers and talked about the one in 1918. They said the chickens went to roost and the cows came to the barn.

We actually did not see it, we were shopping and decided it was too late to stop by our church for a viewing like many were doing. We got home, I went into the house and before I knew it maybe 30 seconds the house was almost completely dark. As quick as it came it was gone. friends at church did send us pictures. Pretty impressive but still we didn't get the entire eclipse.
