DUMB BLOND? NOT A CHANCE...

Blog Posted:4/21/2014 12:41:00 PM
I have always been a HUGE Dolly Parton fan...Not only does she sing country, but the lady's got some SERIOUS soul. She ain't no dummy either. She's got loads of insight and wisdom...Here are a few of her quotes:

1: Plastic surgeons are always making mountains out of molehills
2: The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain
3: Find out who you are and do it on purpose
4: It's hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone world
5: If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one
6: It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen
7: Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life
8: Storms make trees take deeper roots
9: I tried every diet in the book. I tried some that weren't in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets...
10: It costs a lot of money to look this cheap
11: My weaknesses have always been food and men - in that order
12: We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails
13: I was the first woman to burn my bra - It took the fire department four days to put it out
14: Smile - It increases your face value
15: They think I'm simple minded because I seem to be happy. Why shouldn't I be happy? I have everything I wanted and more. Maybe I AM simple minded. Maybe that's the key: Simple
16: The magic is inside you...There ain't no crystal ball
17: When someone shows their true colors, believe them
18: If I see somethin baggin, saggin or draggin, I'm gonna have it nipped, tucked or sucked

Not bad huh?

Recommended songs: 'Here You Come Again' and 'Hard Candy Christmas'...What she does with her voice at the end of both songs are amazing...

I love --#2 --#4 --lol.... to number #6....... lol.... to #10.............. I love Dolly. Never will I turn a Dolly moment away. Tim, do you remember one of her old, movies called.. "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)" Burt- Dolly- And Dom... :) Of course I watched, the movie... Texas, and Burt had lots to do with the flick.<3<3<3 I still own an original RECORD ;) Dolly, Dolly, Dolly, from in 1980. By the way, I super love it when she was a guest star on "The Simpsons" tvshow. I don't know about smart. But, she's freaking clever, and super awesome.... XOX~ Linda
