 Like her grandmother, the late Patsy Hamilton, Emi can sing
 the Lord's gospel with the conviction of a soul who's been
 on the earth years beyond her age.  And like her daddy,
 Randall Hamilton, Emi can cut loose and have fun with the
 crowd while she entertains them. In this video, Emi plays
 the ukulele as the Backporch Cloggers dance.

Subj:     Woman Shot In Car (S108, S525b)
          From: Tom_Adams on 99-02-10
      and From: gordonschuk on 1/29/07


 Linda  Burnett, 23, was visiting her in-laws in Arkansas,
 and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up
 some groceries.  Several people noticed her sitting in
 her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes
 closed, with both hands behind the back of her head.

 One customer who had been at the store for a while became
 concerned and walked over to the car.  He noticed that
 Linda's eyes were now open, and she looked very strange.
 He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that
 she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been
 holding her brains in for over an hour.  The man called
 the  paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors
 were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from
 her head.
 When they finally got in, they found that
 Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back
 of her head.  A Pillsbury biscuit canister
 had exploded from the heat, making a
 loud noise that sounded like a gunshot,
 and the wad of dough hit her in the back
 of her head.  When she reached back to
 find out what it was, she felt the dough
 and thought it was her brains.  She initially passed out,
 but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for
 over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid.

 And, yes, Linda is a blonde.

          (Also see 'Tiger Woods Stops For Gas' in GOLF2)

 John and Cathy were driving through Arkansas on their way from
 New York to California. Looking at his fuel gauge, John decided
 to stop at the next gasoline station and fill up. About  5 minutes
 later, he spotted one and pulled over to the high octane pump.

 "What can I do fer ya'll?" asks the attendant.

 "Fill her up with high test," replied John

 While the attendant was filling up the tank, he started checking
 out the car. "What kinda car is dat?" he asked, "Never seen one like
 it before."

 "Well," responded John, his chest swelling up with pride, "this my
 boy is a 1997 Cadillac DeVille."

 "What all it got in it?" asked the attendant.

 "Well," said John, "It has everything. It has power steering,
 power seats, power sun roof, power mirrors, AM/FM radio with a 10 deck
 CD player in the trunk with 100 watts per channel, 8 speaker stereo,
 rack and pinion steering, disk brakes all around, leather interior,
 digital instrument package, and best of all, a 8.8 liter V12 engine."

 "Wow," said the attendant, "that's really something."

 "How much do I owe you for the gasoline?" asked John

 "That'll be $30.17," said the attendant.

 John pulled out his money clip and peeled off a $20 and a $10. He
 goes into his other pocket and pulls out a handful of change.
 Mixed up with the change are golf tees.

 "What dem little wooden things?" asks the attendant.

 "That's what I put my balls on when I drive," says the driver.

 "Wow," said the attendant, "dem Cadillac people really think of

Subj:     Arkansas Couple Don't Want More Kids (S13, S538b)
          From: KMACINTY on 4/30/2003
      and From: RDOBRY on 5/7/2007

 After their 11th child, an Arkansas couple decided that was
 enough, as they could not afford a larger bed.  So, the
 husband went to his veterinarian, and told him that he and
 his cousin didn't want to have any more chirren.

 The Vet told him that there was a procedure called a Vasectomy,
 that could fix the problem, but that it was expensive.  "A
 less costly alternative," said the doctor, "is to go home,
 get a cherry bomb,(fireworks are legal in Arkansas) light it,
 put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and
 count to 10."

 The hillbilly said to the vet, "Golly Doc, I may not be the
 smartest tool in the shed, but I don't see how putting a dang
 cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear; is going to hep me?"

 "Trust me!", said the doctor.

 So, the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer
 can.  He held the can up to his ear and began to count...
 At this point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs,
 and resumed counting with his other hand...

Subj:     A Letter From An Arkansas Mother To Her Son (S126b, S468b, DU)
          From: RFSlick on 6/23/99
      and From: jbcary1 on 1/10/2006

 Dear Son:
 I'm writing this real slow cause I know you can't read very fast.
 We don't live where we did when you left.  Your Daddy read in the
 paper that most accidents happen within twenty miles of home, so
 we moved.

 I won't be able to send you the address because the last Arkansas
 family that lived here took the numbers off the house with them for
 their next house so they wouldn't have to change their address.

 This place has a washing machine.  The first day I put four shirts
 in, pulled the chain and I ain't seen 'em since.

 It only rained twice this week.  Three days the first time and four
 days the second time.

 You know the coat you wanted me to send you?  Well, Aunt Sue said
 it would be too heavy to sent in the mail with them heavy buttons
 on it, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.

 We got a letter from the funeral home. They said if we don't make
 the last payment on Grandma's funeral bill, up she comes.

 Your sister had a baby this morning.  I ain't heard whether it's
 a boy or a girl, so I don't know if you're an uncle or an aunt.

 Your Uncle John fell in the whisky vat.  Some men tried to pull
 him out, but he fought them off, so he drowned.  We cremated him
 and he burned for three days.

 Three of your friends went off the bridge in a pickup.  One was
 driving, the other two was in the back.  The driver got out.  He
 rolled the window down and swam to safety.  The other two drowned.
 They couldn't get the tailgate down.

 There's not much news this time, nothing much has happened.

 Love, Mama

 P.S. I was going to send you some money, but the envelope was
 already sealed.
