Fifty (!): The Big Five-Oh $#!*

Well, it's official: I'm a Certified Old Fart.

My "blonde" Australian lady-friend reader baked brownies in my honor:

Too bad I wasn't able to fly down and eat them!

She sent along a pic of herself too:

At first I thought she was pulling my leg, then I realized: That's right - of course - it's winter up here, so it's summer Down Under... right?

My manager sent me a whole box of goodies, including cookies of many varieties that she baked herself.

Here I am eating one:

HT: Pogria for the photo.

And, of course, it's my birthday, so I'll post a redhead if I want to.

You just never know with redheads: Most have blue or green eyes, but hers are dark brown. Highly unusual.

I have a gig tonight, but after it's over me and a couple of guitarist buddies are going to get together and PARTY!!!

We got your bottle of Herradura 100% Blue Agave Anejo tequila, twelve Corona's, and a bag of limes (For the beer, not the tequila: With tequila this good, it would be a sin to use "training wheels").

In the foreground you can see the uber-cool gift my manager gave me: A genuine 1930's Navajo bolo tie with turquoise and what looks like a fossilized shark's tooth or claw. And, it has real bolos on it: Ballsy! LOL!

Looks Like I'll have to leave you to the redheads.

An Aussie Blonde would never have stopped drinking so soon!!!

Paul: Thanks dad. LOL! I keep that mix it yourself Gatorade around. A liter of that and some B vitamins does wonders.

Pogria: Thanks again, but I guess I really am an old fuddy-duddy now: I awoke to 3/4 of a bottle of tequila and two beers left this morning. Not much "damage" for three musicians.

More coffee. I need more coffee. ;^)

If you'd been drinking with Aussies, you'd had to have gone looking for more booze long before morning arrived!

That would have been my twenty-fifth birthday Pogria, NOT my fiftieth. LOL!
