Martha Promise (Mrs. Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter)

"The blues is like this. You lay down some night and you turn from one side of the bed to the other: all night long. It's not too cold in that bed, and it ain't too hot. But what's the matter? The blues has got you." --Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter
Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.
Today we honor and welcome famous widow Martha Promise wife of famous "world's greatest cotton picker" US singer/songwriter Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter to our joy-ous club.
Huddie's trademark song, "Goodnight Irene" became a hit one year after his death in 1949, selling more than 2 million copies.
Martha and Huddie married in 1935.
Mourning Joy:
Q: Where do animals go when they lose their tales?
A: To a retail store.
Mourning Quote:
"Sitting in a sacred place means you must sit alone." --Marilyn "Omni Funke" Torres
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.
Write something.
Go ahead.
I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
