Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Lots of stuff going on today not the least of which is the House Blond's birthday. Good lord, Grandma sends these guys more presents each birthday than we got in eighteen years. I ain't lyin' neither. That girl made bank.
Katie shares her special day with jazz great Charlie Byrd, Mexico (Nope, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day), Lauren S, and legendary bluesman B. B. King. Killer live rendition of Thrill is Gone here.
She hadn't even packed THE BAG. We quite literally threw some stuff together and careened down the hill to the hospital some 30 miles distant. Sometime approaching zero-dark-thirty the House Blond abruptly plopped into this world and I began passing out see-gars proclaiming IT'S A GIRL (in pink). Real ones. Berings. No bubble gum or schwagg.
Later that day That Boy would ask.....
If it's Katie's birthday.....where's her birthday hat at?
