Happy Birthday Rick....

Happy birthday Rick. Let's see, what is it now....103 years old?

Thankfully, The Moonpie Chronicles has given us an outlet for serious topics and rants.

Hope you are having a great day and many more to follow. And as one old friend to another, what says Happy Birthday like a naked woman laying on a wooden floor.

Cheers my friend, I'm glad we are both still kicking. Peace.

Missed it again....

Each year, Willie has a "picnic' on the fourth of July on his ranch in Texas.

David Allan Coe and other invited guests sing and party for several days each July.

Leon and many other guests are invited to Willies party to play and have a grand time at the annual event. In the 70's, the Watermelon Mountain Jug Band was invited to attend and wrote a song about the experience.

"Hey, hey Willie

we're glad we came along

gettin' high on them Texas skies

gettin' high on them Texas songs

soon we will be leavin' and we'll all say good-bye

to Willie Nelsons picnic on the 4th of July"

If it's the LAST thing we do, Rick and I will be at Willies picnic some year before we take up the rocking chair.

Happy Birthday America.
