i don't think the word "fun" can be legally put into a blooze tune. notice we just don't see song titles like the "I'm Having so Much Fun Blues"?

astronaut has potential here....kinda has that country blooze sound to it....

In 18 months I've lost 2 jobs,
my boyfriend's nuts, his friends are slobs.
I need a life that is brand new,
new job, new man and a house with a view.
I'm really not that hard to please,
no need to propose while on your knees.....
just being silly, but all is true!!

Can you get a turntable and play Far Away Eyes backwards? 'Cause when you play country music backwards, you get your dog back, your woman back, your house back, your job back...

[Good luck.]

New Orleans area weighs in with lowest April unemployment rate in the nation
by The Times-Picayune
Thursday June 04, 2009, 11:00 AM

For the second month in a row, the New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner area had the lowest unemployment rate among the nation's large metro areas. The Houma-Thibodaux area tied for the second lowest rate, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The April unemployment rate in the New Orleans area held steady at 5.3 percent. The rate in Houma-Thibodaux during that month was 3.6 percent. The Houma area tied with Ames, Iowa, for the second-lowest rate.

"We continue to see signs of resiliency in our state's employment picture," said Tim Barfield, executive director of the Louisiana Workforce Commission. "Low unemployment rates and job growth in some parts of the state are very positive news and give us hope that we will continue to outperform the country as a whole."

Nice song Mickschix, albeit troubling. Hang in there girl.

sonyzzz, hang in there bro.' Something good always evolves from the bad stuff. Leaving my wife and job was the best thing that ever happened to me, but at the time it was "tuff" stuff.
