American Idol, Kristy Lee Cook, Selma, Oregon, And My Mum's Vagina

Two American Idol Seasons ago, (Wow! Has it been that long?) I nursed my Mum back from the almost dead and wrote this piece about it- American Idol, Bo Bice, And My Mum's Vagina.

Since then, I have been living in Selma Oregon- a small, not very cosmopolitan place full of small cabins hidden in the woods.

Last night, while watching Idol with my Mum- marveling at her climb from near death, watching her knit green wool caps for friends of mine- Kristy Lee Cook stepped up to the audition and sang of amazing grace.

I know who my favorite for this year is, and I wonder, "does she have an older sister?"

In case y'all are wondering, this is ALL of Selma. Pretty much everything there is to see and do in Selma. Yeehaw.

I thought about you when I saw her singing. She is terrific and it's another reminder of what comes from those small corners of the world not often contemplated by the rest of us. Until we read your blog, that is...

I'll have no doubt she'll be my one of my favorites also, I knew you lived close but had no idea that you actually lived in Selma. Have you ever met or seen her?
I bet she has sang in the rodeos in your area.

Wow! You have an arcade! And, is that the original Womping Willow from Harry Potter in the same photo?

Hell, the place looks like Portland with all those little malls -- and there's even a miniature golf course!

Selma looks like a much nicer, greener version of Winslow, Arizona.

If the place is named Selma, why do all the names on the signs say Selmac?

This answers the "which came first" Selma or Selmac?

Under 2000 people. You probably only know half of them.

Looks like a pretty place. And Kristy gave me goosebumps when she sang! I'm rooting for her too :)
