Forty

Yesterday Erin and I went down to San Antonio to celebrate the 40th birthday of my good friend Barry. Barry’s folks put on a huge shindig at their house with over 50 people there. Lots of food, music, fun, and Erin even got some quality dog time with their champion poodle (really!).

After the party the four of us (including Barry’s wife Catherine) retired to their house for the night. Barry graciously opened up a bottle of 40 year old port that was made the year he was born. It’s always been a List item for me to drink a wine that is older than me, but the more time that goes by, the less opportunity there is. Older wines can get pricey! Barry, however, poured freely and we were able to enjoy this incredibly smooth, complex, and wonderful drink.

A great time with great friends. Thanks, guys.

Music Lessons

A young child returned from his first music lesson on the tuba. “How did it go?” asked his father.

“Great,” said the child. “I learned how to play a ‘C’.”

The next week the child took another lesson and his father asked about the lesson.

“Terrific,” said the child. “I learned how to play a ‘G’.”

The following week the child didn’t come home. The father was frantic with worry when he finally got home at 2:00 AM.

“Where have you been!?!?” screamed the father.

“I had a gig!!” answered the son.
