Rhetty, Set....Go Outside!

Thomas Rhett is trying to do what most of us need to do...

Get kids and hopefully grown-ups too off their Ipad's, phones and screens.

Rhett is trying to get 1.2 million kids off their screens and outside for at least 1 more hour a week. 

Dare I say... getting out and enjoying the 'country again'.  

Find out more about the Outsideologist Program from Rhett below.

Throwback Song of the Day

Each weekday at 3:10.  I deliver the Throwback Song of The Day! 

Today's the artist said the song made him laugh and sometimes we all need that.  It just sounds fun!  Plus he needed a bus song on Clancy's Tavern in 2011. He put all the writers of the song into help him sing backup vocals and have some fun too.  That is not all he brought to the table cameo wise.

Remember the video?  It portrays an Animal House kind of Fraternity Scene.

See if you can catch all the stars that make an appearance in this one. 

Tune in tomorrow for another Throwback Song of The Day!

This is for "The Birds"

Last year around this time.  A mysterious nest appeared on the garage.  The nest fell and my wife created a makeshift nest out of a planter.  The birds lived, grew up to be healthy birds, and are probably entering the finest schools in the area.  Here is a picture of them.

This year, we hoped that we would be bird free... wait around till our baby birds graduate and spread their wings and fly. 
Then just this week, a new nest popped up.  Looks like there will be another summer for the birds.

Love this Guy

I have a tiny yard.  If I had a Beer I would mow the whole neighborhood, especially if I had this thing... 

Kudos, your lawnmower is cooler.

I need to start working on a Ben Beer to rival the Ron Beer!
