It's funny how excited we get about birthdays. We have no control over them, we didn't do anything to earn them, and they keep on happening regardless of whether we are here or not. And yet, when it is a birthday, we celebrate as if we had just won an Olympic Gold! Forget about the other 364 days of the year, you get one day to "have it your way!" However, to get around all of this, the trick is to treat every day as a birthday.
So, celebrate my birthday, I will! My wonderful wife, Lynn, is taking me to a fun little Mexican restaurant (where two can eat a very full meal, including free taco chips and bottomless Diet Pepsis) for less than twenty bucks! I know! It's an hour drive, so we don't go very often.
And then, if the weather cooperates, we are going to see Jim Belushi and his LEGENDS OF ROCK & BLUES, with (Jim, of course) Brad Whitford (Aerosmith), Barry Goudreau (former member of the band Boston), Michael Carabello (Santana), David Hull (The Joe Perry Project), and Johnny A. Backing this blues rock superband will be The James Montgomery Blues Band with The Uptown Horns. Opener: Kan-Tu.
Now this is going to be a fun evening, birthday or not! Happy birthday to me!
