Born on the 5th of July

Huey Lewis shares my birthday...except he was born like, what? a century ago? I had his 45 when I was about 12. Happy to be stuck with you. Sam just told me when he was college he went to see Stevie Ray Vaughn OPEN, yes, OPEN for Huey Lewis. Isn't that hilarious??
Here are some things that happened on my birthday...
Naval hero David Farragut was born in Tennessee, 1801
First Lady Mary McElroy was born, 1841
The Salvation Army was founded in London, 1865
The bikini bathing suit made its debut in Paris, France, 1946

Sorry Crowe, I have no recollection. Try your 'stories' on someone else. Getting ready for the big day??

i'll bet you have no recollection... but i think i might have pictures. i think trish was sitting on you, the wench.
yeah, we're in prep more. including us, there will be eight people staying in the house. i'm more stressed about that than anything else. but its mostly all good. so far 18 people coming from home. way more than i thought would come. and my aunt is doing the ceremony. shes insisting everyone call her rev and is planning to charge for her services. good thing she's cheap!

p.p.s - you're old

HEY! I am NOT old. I am still as immature as I was 10 years ago...just ask Sam. I guess I should mention that Sam's family and friends from America are potentially reading this so watch the skank business...skank. For those who don't know, skank is the Canadian term for a well-mannered woman.
