...crystal gale

Crystal Gayle is an American country music singer best known for her 1977 country-pop hit, "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue". Actually it was the contact lenses. An award-winning singer, she accumulated twenty number one country hits during the 1970s and 1980s. She is also famous for her nearly floor-length hair and was voted one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world in 1983. She is the younger sister of singer Loretta Lynn (19 years younger) and a distant cousin of singer Patty Loveless. Crystal Gayle has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, near Loretta Lynn's star.
On this day in 1880 the Great Gale of 1880 devastated parts of Oregon and Washington with high wind and heavy snow. Chester County, PA has had lots of snow already this year making the green grass white. AA, UD, BJ and GD are in Naples, Florida missing all of the fun! Stay warm, enjoy the changes in season and if you feel the Winter Blues coming on...give one of the aforementioned initials a call. They would be happy to have you.

"On life's vast ocean diversely we sail. Reasons the card, but passion the gale."
