Glory Glory Glory

Every Fourth of July I think back to some friends I used to know that are no longer around. I don't spend a lotta time thinking about it..... but I think of them.

I knew a girl who was almost a lady
She had a way with all the men in her life
Every inch of her blossomed in beauty
And she was born on the fourth of July

Well she lived in an aluminum house trailer
And she worked in a juke box saloon
And she spent all the money I give her
Just to see the old man in the moon

I used to sleep at the foot of Old Glory
And awake in the dawn's early light
But much to my surprise
When I opened my eyes
I was a victim of the great compromise

Yup.. there are ghosts and ghosts...

then there are ghosts I still drink a beer with.

But that ain't no never mind today. I leave the office at noon and tonight head to the river to listen to a band I have wanted to see for some time.... Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons.

Everyone who has seen them says they do a real kick ass show. Plus I have free tickets... two actually.. so I have a spare, seeing as I have been stood up on the second... can anyone make beautiful DownTown Wisconsin by 7 tonight?

Anyways.... I said I would post some Holiday Cheesecake for Randal........

Oooooops..... wrong cheesecake.
That one's a little stale. Never mind.

Try this one.....Happy Holiday.

I was going to offer you my bod to fill the seat for your second ticket but thanks to the first lovely(COUGH) ladies photo I am blind.

You bloody bastard. But thanks to the magic of the second photo, I think I can see again. Of course, I'll need new glasses since those just freakin' shattered.

Enjoy your rock and/or roll and/or I don't know show. And the beer!

Have fun at the concert! Sounds likes a great time!
Happy 4th of July as well!
Hope you have a great weekend.

P.S. I put you on my Blogroll (finally!) so that I don't forget about you. You're far too funny and clever for me to miss any posts!

Oh dear, they should have found one of those super-size flags for that one and taken the picture after the fireworks once everyone was blind.

You know a major reason for Vietnam ending was because of protest in the military - and the draft. Dahr Jamail says it may be happening again. Wouldn't it be nice if the 4th could be a day to celebrate the end of US wars of aggression. I know.. I'm just a dreamer.

what a great holiday! I hope everyone had a good time. The beer was good, had plenty of time to go biking. I would love to do a four day weekend again.... maybe this week.
