For this week’s Pickin’ & Grinnin’ In The Kitchen Spot Paul and Pap did a great version of We Live In Two Different Worlds, an old Hank Williams song.

Hope you enjoyed the song-and the views of 2 different worlds!

    There were no pickers among my parents and siblings and their spouses, but we had one sister-in-law who played piano. That’s not to say that we weren’t musical. Several of us had decent singing voices within our own ranges. One of our favorite pastimes was to get our sister-in-law on the piano and call out favorites or find songs in the Baptist Hymnal for her to play while we sang along. There weren’t too many sharps and flats when we hit notes but our harmony was no where near as good as Paul and Pap’s nor Chitter and Chatter’s.

    Which picture represents prosperity to you? Each of us can answer it different, as I grow Older and Wiser, I see the glass half full rather than half empty,, The Love of Money as the Bible teaches isn’t the answer, and in the end brings ones ultimate demise..Great Job on the song, enjoyed it..

    Nice job on that song, I don’t think I
    ever heard it before. I live about 8
    miles from my shop and That Surely IS
    TWO Different Worlds. I ain’t got any
    snow here, but I still got 5″ or more
    on my property. If I didn’t have 4
    wheel drive, I’d have to walk a good
    piece, but it’s like riding on a cloud.

    I think I remember this post! I hope you are not having to be in that other world, (Atlanta) today!
    We had a little snow slip up on us last night. It even caught the weather folks by surprise. On the 11:00 PM news they couldn’t agree whether we would have 1/2″ or up to 3″ or more overnight! LOL
    When I peeped out this morning all I saw was a skif..the top of the truck and car white like a heavy frost.
    Now I am ready for Spring! But, I am not sure to trust the forcast for next week of a high of 67 degrees…A month from tomorrow is March 17th, St. Patricks Day, and potato (tater) planting day around here! We have planted onions and green peas by this time in years past.
    Seems like this snow white winter has been a different world than we have been used to.
    Great Post, hope you are having a great sunny day!
    Thanks tipper

    lovely contrasting pictures but I can’t get the video either and you know it’s a better day when you have Pap & Paul to lead the way!

    Loved this. Now you know why I moved to
    Murphy, NC. I feel sad for those who never know the beauty of these
    mountains. I walk out onto my deck every day and thank God.

    Coming from two different worlds give each such a different perspective on the same world. . . .

    Loved Pap and Paul’s rendition of “We Live in Two Different Worlds.” It had been a long, long time since I’d heard that Hank Williams’ favorite. Thank you for posting again! Everybody out there, I hope the snow, ice, power outages, earthquake tremors and other “winter-mix” vestiges of our WinterWatch2014 are settled down and you can enjoy a beautiful and pleasant Lord’s Day on this February 16, 2014!

    I like this post. Most of us have to live in tow different worlds, and might even be two different persons. One is for work and public and the other is for home and recharging. Many of the people I have known at work or in public are quite different than they appear, and you don’t know that until you get to know them. Also, nice job on the song.

    Having lived in a metropolitan area for over half of my life after coming from the mountains, I KNOW which is the better life. These mountains are where I belong.

    Ahh! the delights of living in the country and the beauty of skyscrapers in the crowded big city. Choices is what one needs to make – I have lived in the city, but a house on a crowded street, but I retired in the country to enjoy the peace and quietness of nature’s beauty. Pap and Paul – wonderful!
