I would invite the Easter Bunny too......but.....

ok. Last week's Beer for Peace worked out really really well. Think I'm kidding? NO CIVIL war in Iran... is there?

So I am gonna do it again..... I sent out a quick email and my very good buddy, Keith, has agreed to come to

and play a few licks while I attempt to get some divergent personalities like....

Ann Coulter....

........and Rush Limbaugh and ...

to just get together and have some popcorn and peanuts and just discuss like rational human beings what we can all do to make the world a better place.

Now I may have better things to do... In fact I do! Of late, my esteemed buddy, close friend, occasional confidant and son.... Bubba-Boy Wonder

... has been rather morose thinking of his future.

"Dad, I graduated over TWO months ago.... and I still don't know what to do with the rest of my life!!!!"

Well, those are very grave concerns and ones that should be taken seriously.

His first serious attempt at solving the rest of his life was to get in a car with a couple of buddies and drive t0

Now, I have heard Austin is a cool city, that there is good beer and music& such..... but the recent economic times make a road trip to a Third-World Country like Texas a bit unreasonable. And I am pretty sure I had talked him out of that idea

So I am attempting to have him join me for a couple of beers Saturday afternoon with my other esteemed guests.... like Michael Samwich and Adolf Busch-Lite

and Maureen Dowd... Al Gore

I would e-vite my friend Dorothy, too, but I am pretty sure she is still dead. Anyways..............

The thing of it is.... my son is very serious about his impending career...... what ever that may be. He has been offered a couple of gigs doing sound design for 'indy' short films.... which means...'no money'.

He was going to go to Iowa .... a notion prompted by a small blurb he had read.....The first week of August has been designated as World Breastfeeding Week. The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) encourages Iowans to use this week to increase awareness of the importance of breastfeeding.

But I convinced him that it probably was not a 'flimable' opportunity for a sound design engineer.

Then.... out of the blue ( or green or red or purple) he has an offer to go to

and do sound design on a play for a couple of months. I guess the playwright has done some Broadway stuff and had won some awards or shit in France.

So unless there is a fly in the ointment... the kid is moving to Philly for a bit, and

I somehow I get the feeling that when all is said and done.....

.... none of my invited guests will show up and

... I'm just gonna sit around and shoot the breeze with Bill-a Lang...... I think he owes me a couple of beers.
The Kid is not even gone...... and I miss him already.

Given that your kid doesn't seem to be a doofus like the majority of your subjects today, I don't think he'll starve. Now, finding a gig that provides both financial security AND joy, well, there are only about 38 of those in the United States. The rest of us blog. ;-)

Hey, how about inviting the Cleveland Clowns to your bar? Maybe the booze will shake them out of their decades-long suckitude.

I hear Bill Clinton might need a beer and is sure to have a few stories to share.

Philadelphia for a while isn't such a bad choice. He's had excellent fathering and I'm sure he'll do fine.

What a scrumptious good blog post! And send the boy to Iowa, we could use some young blood to do some heavy lifting around here. Got dead trees to cut down and fallen over ones to dissemble. And have a beer on me. and another, and another, and then heck, I might look like Maureen Dowd for all you know.

First, thanks for the link and I linked you back.

Second and most importantly, may your kid find more success than he can handle.

Third, you can't get Michael J. and Rush together; Old Windbag will probably try to steal the actors' meds in an effort to see if he can find the pill that finally makes him coherent.

Austin is a cool city. It's an oasis in a desert of ignorance.
