Me me me me me me!!!!

Up to about page 50 or so. Hard to put down. But damn it, I have to go to bed and get up for work tomorrow!

Great pictures, very riveting story telling. Gregg baring his soul. Just gets better the deeper I get into it.

Good stuff! Bravo, Gregg! Thanks to all involved in getting his story told.

I got it a few weeks ago on Kindle. I read half of it in the first few days but haven't had time to finish it yet. Gregory said it would be funny and it definitely is! Very well written. He hasn't held anything back.

Got mine yesterday. I promised myself I would save it because I have a trip coming up soon and wanted to read it on the plane. Well so much for that, I am a third of the way thru. Very enjoyable.

Thanks to Gregg and thanks to HTN for the prompt delivery.

Got mine saturday while I was away. Started reading sun night and I'm almost done. It's way better than I expected and Gregory doesn't hold back. I can actually read it hearing his own voice tell it. And i'm fairly impressed with having a copy that he personally held in his hand and signed. Love it!

I got it on Kindle weeks ago and finished it very quickly. A great read. Gregg is honest and decent and vulgar and funny and interesting. What more can you ask for?

Arrived home from an absolutely HORRIBLE work day yesterday to find this happy surprise in my mailbox (and signed, no less! ). Have started reading it and given a look-through to the content and am impressed! I'm really enjoying the writing style, the stories told from one who was there, and the pics are great (and plentiful). Bravo, Gregory (and co.)!

A 'blues thing"...

Barbeque Bob: Motherless Child
If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm
If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm
Well, I'm a motherless child, I don't know right from wrong

Please tell me pretty mama, honey, where'd you stay last night?
Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last night?
Well, you didn't come home till the sun was shining bright

I had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled
I had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled
Well, he's had a lot of women, gonna let my ham bones burn

Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done
Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done
Well, I give you my jelly, he ain't give you none

And when you see two women, always running hand in hand
When you see two women, always running hand in hand
You can bet your bottom dollar, one got the other one's man

Lord, I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair
I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair
And if the blues overtake me, gonna rock away from here


And Ed Bell: Hambone Blues

Jellyroll jellyroll : jellyroll is so hard to find
Ain't a baker in town : can bake a sweet jellyroll like mine

I got to go to Cincinnati : just to have my hambone boiled
Womens in Alabama : going to let my hambone spoil

Well she's mine and she's yours : and she's somebody else's too
Don't you mention about rolling : because she'll play her trick on you

That's the way that's the way : these barefooted soul'll do
They will get your money : and they'll have a man on you

You come home at night : she got a towel on her head
Don't you mention about rolling : because she swear she nearly dead

Jellyroll jellyroll : well you see what you went and done
You done had my grandpa : now you got his youngest son

I'm getting tired of walking : I believe I'll fly awhile
I'm getting tired of women : telling me their lies

I wonder : what made grandpa hey love your grandma so
She got the same jellyroll : she had forty years ago

Wanted to finish reading the book last night but couldn't keep my eyes open for the last 10-20 pages, so I finished it this morning. Really enjoyed it.

LOVE this reference!

Got mine yesterday - 1/3 of the way through. I danced like Snoopy (with a wee bit of a jig in there) when I got that baby!

Mine (finally) came in the mail today! Of course it's time for me to go to work, and I'm debating whether I want to take my signed copy to work to read or just read it at home. Already got hooked just in the first few pages.
