Friday The 13th

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is considered by many to be an unlucky day.  To me it is just another day but I'm sure it has in the past been considered by some as the day that everything could go wrong.  I guess I look at things somewhat different than most folks because in my case I try to find the good and humorous in everything.  Now don't get me wrong everything is not funny, everything is not humorous, and most of the time these ramblings are just that. Some truth mixed with playful fabrication in the sole attempt to entertain and enlighten and break up a sometimes otherwise dreary day.  Now I'm not saying that all of my writings are untruths, I'm just saying that some are a stretch of my imagination.  For instance in one of my previous blogs I stated that with all of the collection and late notices that I have to pack from the mailbox that I possibly could become overexerted and die from the heavy loads of paper I would have to carry.  This is a slight stretch.  Because that simply would not and could not happen.  Before I would allow that to happen I would take all those pieces of paper out of the box and put them in the neighbors box, and they would take them to there house and realize they were not theres and bring them to me, thus eliminating my exertion. 

In another post I stated that I needed to replace the wheel on a lawnmower for my wife to be able to mow the yard.  That was another stretch.  She would not allow me to do that, because she doesn't trust me with power tools so she would do it herself.  I also stated that I needed to borrow a ladder from a neighbor so that she can clean the gutters.  You got it another stretch simply because our house doesn't have gutters.  I was bragging just a bit.  And finally in a previous post I wrote of how I was attacked in church by a 5 yr old minister over my sleeping and nodding off during the service.  You got it another slight stretch.  There was no way that I could have known if I was being attacked or not because during this service I actually was asleep.  Some of the best 45 minute naps I have ever taken were during the preachers sermon.  And he never really steps on my toes.  For one thing I keep moving them, so he can't but I am quite sure he tries. 

In all honesty most of these blogs are all done in fun and hopefully bring a little enjoyment to your day.  But I would like to invite you to send me your thoughts and ideas so that I might create a little humorous plot to go with them.  Simply forward your ideas or your stories from life on the road to us here at the contact page and then watch for your story to make it to our blogs.  To all the Drivers out there I would like to say thanks for what you do.  To all the Military, Police,Firefighters and First responders I would also like to say thanks.  Our goal for the remainder of 2011 is to travel all around and do what we do which is to entertain, but it is also to shake the hands of 2 million of the folks that move and protect this country of ours and say thanks in person.  Look for us at a town near you.  Have a safe Friday the 13th.  As for me I am going to see if I can get the wife to  borrow the neighbors water hose and water so she can wash the bus.  I guess this would be another stretch since I'm not married.  Maybe she'll wash the bus anyway..

About Me


Terry Wooley Born on a small family farm in central Kentucky to hard working God fearing parents, Terry learned the meaning of responsibility at a very early age. While most of his schoolmates were playing and having fun, Terry was busy tending to the crops and cattle and polishing his guitar and songwriting talents. With the nearest neighbor almost a mile away and very few friends to pass the time with, he spent most of his spare time perfecting his craft, always dreaming of creating music. At the ripe old age of 8, he persuaded his parents to allow him to enter a local talent contest. They agreed and Terry walked away with all the hardware, performing a solo with only himself and a guitar almost as big as he was. A few years passed and he decided to set out and make his mark in the music world, traveling all over the world fronting and playing guitar for many legends and current and future superstars, and in 1982 became one of the few acts chosen to perform the entire run of the World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee. Terry’s guitar playing always left him in great demand as a session player, and traveling musician, playing on countless albums and road shows. Known as one of the most prolific songwriters to ever pick up a pen, his songs have always been highly sought after by major stars and beginning artist alike. Well respected and admired by musicians and entertainers the world over, he has branched out into other areas of the entertainment business. Terry founded One BAR Records, an independent label to help further the careers of young artist, Lexie Rae Music, a publishing company to handle the many songs he has written, and Flip Flop Productions, a production company to produce young talent and help guide them along the path to stardom. His greatest passion has always been writing, producing and creating music that he feels will last for many years. With all of his many accomplishments and awards, Terry has somehow managed to remain in the background. However with his uncanny writing ability, his unequaled vocal talent, and his superb musicianship, he is quickly being pulled into the limelight. With the release of his critically acclaimed gospel album “SOLID GROUND” and his tribute album "ANY GIVEN DAY" and his tribute album to truck drivers "HIGHWAY FEVER" it is unlikely he will be able to stay out of the spotlight for long. Terry was honored to be able to write some music and lyrics for The World Global Peace Concert. With all of his many awards and accomplishments Terry still remains an unassuming man who is thankful and grateful for all that he has and all that has been given to him. “ I give the Lord all the credit and all the thanks” says Terry. And blessed he has been as many of today’s jingles, commercials, popular music and hit songs are influenced by the creative genius of the one and only Terry Wooley. Terry Wooley
