Each comment you leave-truly makes the Blind Pig & The Acorn a better place to visit!

The winner for February is…

The Texican a.k.a. Pappy! The thing is-I don’t have the prize yet-so Pappy will have to wait a few days-but I promise it’ll be well worth the wait! Hopefully, in a few days I’ll be able to post about the exciting prize Pappy has won-so stay tuned!

Paul recently received some pretty neat kudos for a video we shared several months back. As soon as we heard the great news-I wanted to see the video again. I knew it was a great song-but also knew it was one of our first videos and couldn’t remember who filmed it or what the footage looked like. After I saw it-I blushed. Chitter filmed it-and did her best rock video in and out technique with lots of foot shots. In the background-behind Paul’s head-you can see Chatter doing some sort of contortionist act on the back of the couch. Oh well, I guess all that matters is Paul and Pap’s great harmony and the outstanding music showed through our less than professional video capture.

Thought I’d share the video with you one more time-a great Front Range song “Way Back In The Hills”.

Hope you enjoyed the song-and I hope you’ll click on one of the commenter’s names at the top of the post-you’ve never seen such a talented group of folks-and if you drop by their place I know you’ll be glad you did!

    Enjoyed your post and am so glad you are feeling better. That flu is not fun. Be sure to get enough rest so you don’t have a relapse.

    Awesome video! I think I remember that one from before? Maybe? I think so. Seems like the song is familiar to me, specifically. Cool. Good camera work on the vid Chitter!

    I’m so glad you are better!! You’re way ahead of me on getting some seedlings going. I have been ‘thinking’ about it, but that doesn’t count for much, LOL! Hope you are getting stronger every day.
    Love the video!

    Hey, congratulations to the Texan. He is sure to be happy with any of your gifts.
    Tipper, I sure hope your strength is coming back. You were sick for quite a while, it will take some time. Eat some protein, that should help you body.
    That song is great. What kind of kudos did Paul get?

    Tipper: Thanks for sharing your song from way back in the hills. I love the Appalachian Mountains and all the love that is shared. The guys did a great job on the song, thanks for sharing.

    This is absolutely perfect, Tipper. I could listen to this song all day. To think that in a regualr house somewhere in the NC hills such music is being made just for the fun of it. Amazing.
