Appalachia Chatter and Chitter

Happy Birthday To The Girls!

 

The Pressley Girls - Appalachian Duet

Twenty one years ago today I was laying in a Gainesville GA hospital staring at The Deer Hunter and wondering why in the world we thought we needed children-especially two at the same time.

In all the days, weeks, months, and years since, I’ve never regretted having the girls. They bring boundless joy and happiness to mine and The Deer Hunter’s lives.

Happy Happy Birthday Girls we love you!

Tipper

    Tipper,
    Oh my goodness…I thought posted a Happy Birthday to Chitter and Chatter….This kind of thing happens when you get old…Maybe I did and forgot to push the post button…who knows ‘cept the wild goose and I think he has flown the coop…At any rate Happy belated Birthday Girls…!
    Since I didn’t have a sister and it looked like I wasn’t going to get one, I always thought it would be nice to have a twin sister. Not sure my parents could have handled two of us though with the boys too! Ha
    The closes I ever got to having a twin would be my luck for it to have happened like….
    Rodney Dangerfield’s joke/quote….”When I was born the doctor took one look at my face, turned me over and said, “Look twins!”
    Thanks Tipper,
    PS…Do you bake two cakes or one….with double candles…just pondering!

    Wishing the Pressley Girls a very happy birthday! Wow, it’s hard to believe you both are 21 years old today. Where has the time gone? It’s been a real pleasure watching you grow up and seeing how much you have grown musically and as good people. So very glad I found the Blind Pig blog!

    On the road and crossing things off my bucket list again. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY girls, from the BIG APPLE. Meeting you and your Mom in 2015 was one of the highlights of my Smokie Mountain bucket list trip. 21 is a special birthday, or at least it was in my day.

    Happy birthday, girls. It has been a pleasure to see the two of you grow up to be great musicians, singers, and wonderful young ladies. Your whole family is an inspiration and testament to good living and family love. I am so sorry to have missed your concert at The Old Courthouse last Friday, but I had oral surgery that day and just couldn’t make it. I heard you did your usual fantastic performance.

    I did not meet Chitter and Chatter until they were teenagers. They were already lovely young ladies. Now they are wonderful, lovely, super talented grown women. What wonderful addition to our lives. Have great birthdays and many more!

    Just think of all the people they have blessed, including the readers of this daily letter from Appalachia. Truly the world would be a poorer place without them. And we can scarcely afford to do without any of the grace notes we have.
    Happy birthday Chitter!
    Happy birthday Chatter!
    There ought to be a word that fits virtual friends; something more than acquaintance but something less than close friends. And there ought to be a word for a virtual hug. Whatever they are, I’m sending them. Blessings on your special day.
