|T. Jan and Steve|
Let's see how did the day and story all begin?
Oh yea, with good friend and recording artist JON BARONIIkeys/harp/vocals sending me an chance to win that awesome once-in-a-lifetime 7 day Cruise- on the Exciting DIXIE BELLE Here's the whole story......hum...it was last year on my 61st birthday, Jon sent me this Email telling me he had sent in a chance for me to win this COOL , exciting trip, as I wrote a few days ago...".Well, I'm the BIG 62 next week...Feb 22nd.Yep. It's my birthday on Wednesday. Cool.
I had such a great responce from last year's birthday post...thought I'd just update that post for today 'cause it's a cool story. OK? Here gos.....
As you recall last year recording artist, JON BARONI/keys/harp/vocals sent us an Email, saying we'd had a chance to win a 7 day Cruz...WOW. Just how exciting is that? huh? Well, it's really exciting, isn't it...[this year I'm very happy to be getting my fav, KENTUCKY FRIED original too...T. Jan].
BUT, last year, Jon said we'd had a chance to win that BIG 7 Day Cruz....well, OK wait...this is just what he said.... ....'It's on the fabulous new Gypsy Queen Cruise Line ship, The ' Dixie Belle'. All airfares, transfers, food and drinks included - with dinner at the Captain's table as his personal guest.' ...Boy, was I excited and hoped we'd win. ...I like to swim, fish and everything, and Jon must just know that. So.Thanks Jon, you shouldn't have... NO, really folks he shouldn't have.. Photo below.
Also, I'm just sure that Steve will again be singing to me that awesome, cool BLUZZZ BUDDY GUY birthday tune...called 'She's Only Nineteen' or 'Make A Woman Satisfied'....well, just replace 19 with 62, OK? It's easy, just sing along if you want. Let's all have fun..'cause.it's MY birthday, that's all.
I'll find the tune and post it below. OK?
AND, like last year, I'm sure I'll have lotsa FACEBOOK birthday well-wishers on Wednesday.
I'll post them all later this week.
