Dad was making another pot of coffee. The women can handle inside stuff. He would put up a sign not to park in front of the house due to the small pond developing in front of the main door. Unless...the hardware store opened at 10. The party was not till two. He could flood the side of the house outside the garage. If the rain stopped, he would only need to hose off the concrete steps to the front door. The hardware store did indeed have the supplies for the temporary solution. Three pieces cost $23.54. Took 15 minutes to assemble and loosen the drain pipe enough. Dad took a picture and e-mailed it to Sally, who then emerged from the bath room with fresh make up..

PREVIOUS DAVIS STORIES
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2008 Here and There Nashville, TN -- Songwriter Earl "Mac" Davis is about to have a second major hit. Recorded in the late summer, while Earl was stuck home scratching chigger bites after a fishing trip, the song has universal appeal and has been released in country rock and traditional versions. The protagonist, Earl, is "here", while his beloved is "there", far away. The song immediately struck a chord with truck drivers and road crew workers working away from home. However, the appeal appears to be broader. Female listeners who also appear to be "here" while their beloved is "there" are buying the song as downloads and CD singles. The song was recorded in one day with veteran session men chosen by Dylan producer Bob Johnston.
2004 Story Nashville, TN – Songwriter can’t stop loving her. Songwriter Earl “Mac” Davis had two cigarettes and three cups of coffee while watching CNN this morning, then went directly to write down words and chords to a melody in his head. The song practically wrote itself with no additional effort. Earl played around with the lyrics a bit, but then went with the verse and chorus as written, ending the chorus with “I can’t stop loving her”, which was also going to be the title. Earl’s friend Nathaniel met him for lunch soon after. Nathaniel heard Earl sing out the chorus, and liked the melody, which sounded original. He pointed out to Earl that his five last girl friends had no trouble ending the relationship with him. “It’s just a song, Nathaniel, I gotta make a living,” replied Earl. “Besides, she ain’t left yet.”

Studies show that boys that have not learned to read at the end of middle school will not learn it in high school, where all their attention is taken with adjusting and buying cool attire.
