Consider: donating to help support animals at her sanctuary. http://www.towerhillstables.com/towerhill-helpingus.htm

(or donate to an animal shelter in your own area - I'm sure Fiona would approve of any actions - not just donations - that you do in support of helping animals)

Surprise in my email today. An announcement that the legendary blues musician "Buddy Guy" is coming to my little boondock neck of the woods and playing a show at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua​ this June. I've been wanting to see him for a long time now, and this may be the chance of a lifetime, so I'm not missing out! Just bought some front box tickets (which are already now half sold out, so if you are joining me you better act fast!).

Here is some info on him (in case you somehow managed to miss out on the past 55'ish years of his musical career):

Buddy Guy is a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the America’s musical evolution. At age 79, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 6 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." He was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture.

A BIKER CHRISTMAS STORY

'Twas the night before Christmas, And not until Spring,
Would an engine be running, not even a Wing.
The bikes are all sleeping, They're covered and warm
Batteries are tended, nylon covers their form.

My Bros were all nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of new chrome danced in their heads.
And I in my doo-rag, bike jacket and boots,
Out shoveling snow, and dreaming of scoots.

Then from the horizon there came such a clatter,
My shovel I dropped, what could be the matter?
Away up the hill, I slogged through the snow,
Looked up at the sky; where'd all that noise go?

A throb from the heavens like straight pipes so hearty,
Gave Summers' good thoughts, a loud bikers' party.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Hog Ultra Classic, Red trailer in rear.

With a little old rider, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
Putting the hammer down, his Ultra came on,
And he whistled, and shouted, and sang out this song;

"Now, Harley! Now, Big Dog! On Honda and Beemer!
Now Vulcan! Now Injun! On Vict'ry and Triumph!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now RIDE away! RIDE away! RIDE away all!"

As small bikes that from the semis do fly,
When they meet with the air blast, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top that Ultra it flew,
With a trailer of goodies, and ole' St. Nick too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
The rumble and thunder of pipes that gave proof.
I ran to the house, boots thumping around,
And in came St. Nick all bearded and round.

Dressed all in black ride gear, from do-rag to boot,
His chaps were all tarnished with road grime and soot.
A T-bag of goodies he'd flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His shades -- how they twinkled! his do-rag how scary!
With chains intertwined, through skulls that were cherry!
His droll little mouth had done many a row,
So the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
The smoke had a strange smell; it gave him relief!
He had a broad face and a large fat beer belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was tattooed and plump, a right jolly old rider,
So I offered a cold Bud, thought what could be righter?
A wink of his eye as he downed that cold beer,
Gave me to know I had nothing to fear.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to my ride,
And fixed it with Chrome, Horsepower and Pride!
And giving the peace sign with bikers' good cheer,
Took off for his Ultra, which was rumbling near.

He sprang on the saddle, his gloves on the bars,
A wheelie he threw then off towards the stars!
I heard him exclaim, as my chest swelled with pride...
Merry Christmas to all, And to all a good ride!

Had a rough night last night. After being forced to drink one to many cervezas by a group of overly friendly Mexicans (Are you ready for another Señor?) at a local restaurant, I came home to sleep it off. Around 2:15 a.m. I awake to do what you gotta do after drinking, only to discover that instead of sleeping with my darling la gata, Luna, there are two non-resident perros in bed with me. Furthermore, the perros have to do the same thing I gotta do, but that involves me getting dressed and going outside in the cold at this crazy hour. Sigh. OK, got that done..but now where is Luna? I find her curled up asleep on the couch, with the second part of "The Lord of the Rings" still playing on the X-Box.  I covered her up, gave her a kiss and turned off the TV. All is well..so back to sleep for me in the doghouse. Unfortunately, one sorta snored/wheezed. Now I'm awake, and looking for the owners of these perros!

WTH(eck). Tonight CLEAR SKIES & LIGHT WINDS WILL RESULT IN COLD TEMPS & BRING THE FIRST WIDESPREAD FROST. LOW TEMPS  IN THE LWR TO HI 30S. IMPACTS.OUTDOOR PLANTS COULD BE KILLED OR SERIOUSLY DAMAGED BY THE COLD TEMPS.

It's getting close to chili and snuggle season (but perhaps best not to do the 2nd after the first. HAHA).

Bambi, one of Disney's most beloved animals, may be best known as "a little frail deer, not doing very well, sliding around on the ice on his belly", was voiced as a child who grew up not telling anyone he was the voice of the iconic character. Little frail Bambi grew into a man who was at the time the youngest USMC drill instructor ever, who served three tours in Vietnam, was wounded several times, awarded several medals and ended up being promoted to Major before retiring after 25 years of service to his country.

Marine Major Donnie Dunagan nearly made it through his 25-year career in the Corps without anyone knowing his secret. He didn't tell anyone as he was thinking to himself, "I can just see gunnery sergeants and captains writing home and saying, ‘Dear Mom, guess who my [commanding officer] is?’ ” he recalled in an interview with Military Times.

Read the story below, and hear some of it in his own words by clicking on the link at the top to "Listen to the Story". It's only 3 minutes people. Come on! Do it recruit! Do it now!!!

A gritty Marine, Donnie Dunagan fought in Vietnam, earned decorations for his service and retired as a major. But all his life, there was one thing he could never escape: He was the voice of Bambi.

Got email this morning which brought great financial news. The "investment service" I bought "bonds" with let me know that my "shares" have "received dividends" and they will "automatically invest them" to "rebalance my portfolio". Total "dividends" earned this month =  0.16 cents. I have now started on my way to becoming a member of the highly coveted "1%" club of wealthy people. WooHoo!!

I wish I had enough creativity to think of (and produce) these type cartons. I definitely have that sense of humor, but sense alone doesn't translate into creativity. On the plus side, I do have enough sense to be able to peel a banana. ;-)
