|English: Extreme points of the contiguous United States. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Years ago, before I started my show biz road career, if you would have asked me to name my least favorite state of the USA, I probably could have readily come up with an answer. Now that I've spent a fair amount of time in all of the 48 contiguous states I couldn't come up with an easy answer. Sure, there are states that I might readily name as favorites, but when I start thinking of some that I might name as a least favorite, I begin thinking of things that I like about each of them.
Call me a fan of the United States because I am. Everywhere I go in this wonderful country I can find something of interest or something that I particularly like. I guess if I were really pressed to answer the question I would have to say the state that I like least is the state of unhappiness.
Despite its shortcomings, the United States of America is a nice place to visit and I'm happy that I live here.
I'm keeping this post somewhat generic because if things are going according to plan I'm traveling today. My wife is staying behind in Houston as I continue traveling by myself heading for a couple week stay in Tennessee and then on to New Jersey with some stops in between. My wife will join me in New Jersey in August so we can make our way back home. Since I'm traveling I may not make it online today so I don't want to create much in the way of discussion.
What I do want to say is be sure to visit my site this Wednesday which is July 1st. Being the first of the month means that it's a Battle of the Bands post and being the first Wednesday of the month it's also Insecure Writer's Support Group Day. As I do whenever these events fall on the same day is tie them together into one hopefully clever post.
This time around, my theme will be highlighted by one of my favorite songs. What I consider to be one of my favorite songs might seem like an odd choice to some, but those who visit my BOTB posts regularly know that I can sometimes show what some have thought to be odd tastes. On the other hand maybe you like this song as well. I was surprised to find that it had been covered by so many artists so obviously I'm not the only one who thinks it to be a great song.
Come back on Wednesday to hear two great versions of...
...you'll have to find out then cause I ain't tellin' now. But I'll provide a clue: This late 80's release was sung by an "institution" or an "organization" and the topic of the song has to do with space.
Any guesses about the song in my next Battle? Do you have a least favorite state in the United States? If so what about that state do you dislike?
