  1. Ohhhhh, the Silver Fox!
    Let me invite envy by telling you I have MET the man himself…in fact, spent many days sneaking peeks from the corner of my eye while bustling about in crisp whites, a saucy little hat upon my head….
    I was his mum's nurse when I was fresh out of college and still wet behind the ears. I was totally into disco so his country music crooning did not affect me much. But the MAN…, he does exude a manliness….all that you hear in that song and more. He even gave me a "fatherly" shoulder hug the day we discharged his mother.
    I just looked at him in his studly western hat and drooled….just a little bit.

  2. Ohh! I adore that song! My Mom was a huge Charlie Rich fan; some of my fondest memories are of the two of us zipping through our household chores on Saturday mornings, this song blasting in the background as we swiped away the dustbunnies. Thank you for the stroll down memory lane – I'll share your story with Mom and make her just a bit green with envy!
