Day #6: Eyes that look like Heaven, lips like cherry wine...
Elvira and Jai-alai...hard to have seen that one coming!
I have to admit a couple of things here: I love watching jai-alai (especially doubles' matches). I remember watching that guy sling that ball on all of those Miami Vice intros and wondering what the heck all of that was about- but I've been to Orlando Jai-alai a few times, and it is pretty entertaining if you like the sport and/or betting on it. It's never all that crowded, parking is free and admission is as well- excluding special events like the following. The season starts in January.

Yep, you guessed it- I love some Oak Ridge Boys music. I'd probably say that my 2 favorite Oak Ridge Boys songs are a bit different, though. Y'all Come Back Saloon deals with smoky bars and a woman, while I'll Be True To You deals with a man forever being true to... Dang. Oh, well- my two favorites both involve women- what can I say?
