The dumbest, smart man Has bent his last bow Common sense he was lackin’ But, intelligent, no doubt His I.Q. was genius Human nature was low So much still to learn But, for him, time to go He tought me mechanics, Math, history, and how to fight Now his fighting days are over He went on wading to the light So, I have a prayer Dear God, it is for you Please look after my Daddy As I wish I could do And thank you for the time Well spent by his side I will never forget The way he lived with pride -Miranda Lambert- 4/8/2011

MIranda, what an honest and lovely tribute you have penned here. I know a few people this way. They are just too smart to "get" the things we low level intelligences get as common sense. My dad is a bit like this too. And thanks for that burlesque contest. I just finished reading all the winners. NOt a bad one in the bunch. LUv, Andrea
