It never fails. When I post up something that hits Google with keywords like “cowboy”, “country music”, “Indians” or “Wild West”, Eastern Europe goes wild — judging from my stats. After yesterday’s post about taking my mother to an Indian Casino, there was hardly a soul east of the Elbe who wasn’t tuning in. However much of that traffic could be attributed to the fact that I served up some choice pre-surgery Kenny Rogers. Better yet, he was singing with the Muppets. I imagine the Internet cafes were buzzing as Czechs, Slovaks, Bulgarians and others sang along to “The Gambler”.
So since I’m on a roll here, let’s kick it up a notch.
How about the greatest Country singer ever. Johnny Cash. With the Muppets! You may say Miss Piggy is no Patsy Cline, but she gives June Carter Cash a run for her money, at least in attitude.
Hey Bosnia and Herzegovina, this one’s for YOU!

By the way, after failing miserably with February’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), I’m making the commitment for March.
