    Funny misheard song lyrics are always fun to mention.

    I once thought it was

    “You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille, FOUR HUNDRED children and [email protected] in the field!”

    Kenny had a big ranch just outside Athens near Colbert. I remember driving by it circa 1985 and seeing the big Arabian style horse barns. Burt Reynolds lived in Loganville just south of highway 78.
