I spent a lot of money on Booze, Women and Muscle Cars. The rest I shamefully squandered.

Waylon had a lot of quotable quotes; one of which I couldn't find, but it went something like this:

"I was using about $3000 worth of cocaine a week; it doesn't take long to figure out that runs into money".

Here's what I recall...It's called Dippity Do; something for the lady's hair.

Life follows the old 80/20 rule.

20% of the people do 80% of the work.
80% of problems are caused by 20% of the people.
80% of the crimes are committed by 20% of the criminals.
etc...

We used to have that rule in computer programming. 80% of the functionality can be provided with 20% of the work. Most of the time is spent covering all the little odd-ball scenarios.

There's even a "law" about that. It's called "the Pareto principle".

I like this one ... from NEWSBOYS "Going Public" album

"When we don't get what we deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing
When we get what we don't deserve
That's a real good thing, a real good thing"

pretty deep ...
