About Guitars, Glen, Green and Gulls


The Christmas I was 15, I asked for a guitar.  I got it.  No lessons, but I got the guitar.  I still have it.  Still can't play it.

As I'm sure you know, Glen Campbell has Alzheimer's disease.  Watching this video made me a little nostalgic for yesteryear. You'll see Waylon Jennings, Bobby Bare, Willie Nelson, Ray Stevens, Chet Atkins, Roy Clark, Gene Watson and Crystal Gayle just to name a few.  Serious talent.

This song is Gentle on My Mind, and Glen plays a mean guitar in this video.  It's well worth watching.

the gulls followed along behind, eating whatever he was plowing up.

  1. It's just heart breaking to hear about Glen Campbell, my mom introduced me to his music.

    1. I know! I didn't become a fan of his until after his hey-day, but man, what a talent!

  3. When I first moved away and started college, some of my most prized possessions were Glen Campbell's cassettes. Talk about a serious crush!!!
    His situation - and others, of course - is so cruel. But I credit his wife and daughter for trying to make more people aware of AD. Pray for a cure!

  4. Stopping by during the #Challenge to read your blog. Nice to find Glen Campbell waiting for me. He was a part of my favorite singers. Love your photo support. A lot of work well done. I'll be back to see you.

  5. Too bad you don't live closer. I know someone who could give you lessons :)

    It is sad about Glen Campbell; I guess it just proves no one is immune to the tragedies of life.

    Interesting beetle; looks like a lady bug, but different color.
