Many of you have been following MOM-NOS, a blog by a mother of an autistic son. We made Bud and his mom honorary DBC reps because of their love and support for our prez., Dierks Bentley.

Bud turned ten yesterday, September 19, and his classmates decided to do something special to celebrate. Knowing his favorite color is purple, they created a purple book as a gift and the whole day took on a 'purple' theme:

"While Bud was engaged in something else, Kelly showed Ms. Walker a CD she'd brought in and together they snuck to the classroom's CD player to cue up a track. They turned the volume up slowly and watched for Bud's reaction as Dierks Bentley's "Every Mile A Memory" filled the room.

Bud raised his head, smiled, and started singing along:

"Texas stars in a purple night, Not seein' 'em with you, baby, oh they never do look right..."

Bud's classmates from last year smiled in recognition. His new classmates listened to him, then spoke up in appreciation - "Hey! He really can sing!"

Happy Birthday, Bud! DB Congress luvs ya!
