Hi Mississippi Songbird,
It's really wonderful that you have somebody in your neighborhood who is
competing in the American Idol. I hope he makes it all the way to the top. Take care of yourself and your stomach. Ulcer is a very painful sickness but is very curable. Just don't let it develop in you. God bless you and your family. Have a wonderful and fun filled weekend in the US always.

Oh to be young again! I bet his chick meter just went through the roof! Drew comes from a wonderful family and he is a TRUE SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN! I found the cd that he gave me awhile back and I have put it up. I told my hubby that one day that cd will be worth something.Just think, we knew him before he turned famous!!!! Hey I hope things go better for you at work. Are you ready for this weekend? The weather man is saying a good chance for wintery mix. Hope you and yours have a blessed day.

Good Morning Stephanie,
Burrrr, it's cold outside here this morning. It is currently 19 degrees. It was 21 degrees when I first got up, but it dropped a couple of degrees since then. I don't watch American Idol. I did watch it at first when it first started, but I never could get into it. I seen where this guy was on there tho. Laura@2lmsfarms was talking about it yesterday. I think that is so cool to have someone close by being on t.v. "GOOD LUCK" to him. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Hi Stephanie,

How exciting to have a local boy competing on Idol. And I agree, he is a doll. Hope he wins!

Getting cold in the Ozarks. Hope it's warmer in your neck of the woods. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs,

Renie

do you know him?

Mississippi Songbird said...

No. I don't know him personally. He has been a singer in our area for a while though..

SALTILLO HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER said...

I teach at the high school from where Drew graduated (Saltillo High School) and two of his siblings now attend. Don't know why AI made the mistake, but he's only 19 years old. For the record, he's genuine -- the kind, respectable young man you saw is exactly who he is in everyday life.

Mississippi Songbird said...

Whatever age. I do wish him well.
