# When I'm in that funnel #

#I feel so tired #

#Hold on to summer #

#Now just to get by #

#I'll always remember that #

#Summer light #

#I wonder if I am remembering right ##

They always say you can take the girl

out of the honky-tonk...

but you can't take the honky-tonk

out of the girl.

I don't believe that.

My mom's dead, my dad's in prison...


my parents are... awesome.

They're my grandparents.

Well, we got Skye when she was just

two or three days old.

Uh, her mother...

She was born in the, uh,

Henry Mayo Hospital in Newhall.

And her mother, uh, lost custody

in the first couple of days...

uh, so she came to live with us.

We had a lot of good times.

And, uh, get a good enough education

where you can get a good job...

that you can support me

when I get a little older.

Aw, Pappa.

Which won't be too much longer now.

That's not true.

You're not old.

- You're not old.

- Well, uh, years maybe...

but in mentally and physically

I still feel pretty good.

Me and Kevin have just been trying to

get some extra cash for Arizona...

um, just doing some random little jobs.

You guys are doing a great job.

Really looks good.

Thank you.

My name's Ron, and I'm the next-door neighbor

to this house where the pool's cleaned.

And, uh...

there was a party here,

and, uh, one of the kids...

was on the roof of the add-on here...

and, uh, he was gonna jump in the pool...

and the pool was so black and dirty...

that, uh, you couldn't tell if there was

water in it, but there was no water in it...

and one of the kids warned him,

"There's no water in that pool."

And the kid goes, "Oh, wow," you know.

It was kind of ridiculous.

Um, what I think is funny is, uh...

I think what that guy was talking about,

that story...
