Music for the day before the Middle of the Week…

Since the song I’ve chosen speaks about traditions, specifically a “family tradition”, I started to think about these things that some people hold almost sacred.

I, like most people, follow some traditions, although to most in my family, I am an iconoclast. However, as I mature and because of the passing of the years I am gaining knowledge, wisdom, insight. I now find that traditions are useless.

Just because someone in your tribe, family, social group, religion, whatever, did something…something he or she was obviously quite impressed with, why do I have to do it as well. That’s how I think…

So here comes Hank Williams Jr., a singer I like, and says that he drinks and smokes because it’s a family tradition. Alright, he might have been saying it sarcastically, but brother man, give me a break!

Enjoy the song y’all!

    Funny song I’d never heard. Yes — give me a break! Great post, Francis! You made me stop and think about my family’s traditions and realize how few we actually have. The main ones we have revolve around the food we eat on special holidays. Food! Interesting to think about it.

    1. Well, what can I say, there has to be a little for everybody. I’m not a fan, but I do enjoy some of his songs, as a country music fan that I am…

        Like country. Don’t care for hokey pandering. Yupper, that’s why we have different genres – we can pick and choose.

      2. True, but what is a «hokey pandering Yupper»?

        Hokey pandering. Artists who do not live the lifestyle, make believe they do to sell recordings. Yupper (new sentence) «Yes sir,» down-home style.
