Big Al Owens hangs out with Big Celeb after Clapton concert

2013-03-23 - Nashville, TN - Photo by Innocent Bystander. Big Al Owens, who has an uncanny way of being in photo ops with the famous and powerful, from professional sports figures, popes (we guess), and aspires to a post-Potus breakfast with President Obama, sends this collectors item picture from Nashville, with the caption, "Guess who I ran into in Nashville, after the Eric Clapton concert?" It was Columbia, KY man about town Larry Dudley.

All sights transformed,
lover caught up in other
loses sight of self.

  • Adair Rocks -
    Mike Watson: The Historic Adair County Courthouse - A Feeling of Exhilaration, a Sense of Awe.
    Be sure to Read Adair Rocks in Sunday with CM, March 24, 2013: George Kolbenschlag wanted to write about an Adair County leader who rocks - but who does his own jobs so well he would only agree to the story if it focused on his outstanding organization, not on the leader's quite extraordinary achievements. Sometimes Adair Rocks with exemplary leadership, sometimes with organizations, sometimes with special places, institutions, ideas, and events.
