Song 159 – Huntsville

By June 13, 2018Songs

This song was not used as the music for a Psalm. Paul went to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville for his first years of college. Paul almost got kicked out of High School, and at the time it seemed appropriate for him to go where the state penitentiary was. I remember after his first year, Paul was planning on getting a degree in International Business. I told him he would do well to do undergraduate work in a science, so he knew how to quantitatively measure things, and that he could always go back and get and Master’s Degree in International Business. Paul is the only one of my children who listened to my advice regarding schooling. So, I can’t be upset with him anymore for some of the baloney he did in High School. I’m not sure how Rob ended up at Sam Houston State University. I expect after he reads this he will let me know. I started this song in 2010 when Rob first went to Huntsville. It seemed appropriate to use a photo of the large Sam Houston monument outside of Huntsville, Texas along I-45 for this song. I finished it on January 4th, 2017 when I was working on documenting all of my Songs and Psalms. The most logical photo for this song is of the big white statue of Sam Houston (remember, everything is bigger in Texas). This song started and ended as a farce, and an attempt to match Rob’s sense of humor. Not sure I did a very good job at either end. Oh well!
