Floyd Cramer and My Momma

My Momma, whom I lost in late March, has a birthday tomorrow. She would be 79 years old.

What is not known with my siblings but I did know in hanging out at my pappy's bars with her and him, was her preference for a jukebox to play an old fashioned country-love song that was a "one hit wonder" on any station, Floyd Cramer's "Last Date."

Not certain exactly why my momma (and to a certain extent, my daddy) loved this tune, but it resonates with me with her memory of loving the tune.

Happy Birthday, Momma. First b-day with the heavens without humans. If there is a heaven, I hope Daddy is listening to "Last Date" as well.
