On the Lighter Side...


Saw this over on Every Day No Days Off, the Conway Twitty Memorial 1911! Forget that Bill Laughridge special! Forget Doug Turnbull's 1913! Forget that $85,000 Colt being auctioned off! The is

Seriously, my favorite memory of Conway is he and I sitting on the deck of this resort he owned in the Cayman Islands, drinking boat drinks, watching the sun set, and telling trashy stories about people we knew in Nashville. "The most important thing in life, Michael," he intoned and many many boat drinks, "is to beat the machine." He did. And hell, he'd appreciate a 1911 that went with Nudie suits!

I think they made both a 1911 and a .357 magnum Elvis commorative. So next year must be Jerry Lee Lewis and after that Johnny Cash and you will have the complete set of the Sun Records Million Dollar quintet.
