Over. The. Hill.
The miles I've traveled and the things I've seen/done over the years... Sitting in Granddad's lap driving the old Farmall tractor. Turning the TV antennae to watch a blacked out Cowboys game. The first color TV I ever saw. Listening to an AM DJ while driving thru the middle of Wyoming that had barricaded himself in the studio and was playing Pink Floyd followed by Bob Wills followed by Led Zepplin followed by Marty Robbins. Meeting Bob Wills. Riding on a Wein Air Alaska flight while the pilot played Peg O' My Heart on harmonica over the PA and rocked the wings in time. Chopping down an oak tree with a Shelby Charger. (I don't recommend that last one, btw.) Driving an overloaded 18wheeler down Wolf Creek Pass for the first time. Duck and cover. Apollo 11. Chicken Man (He's everywhere! He's everywhere!). Icky Twerp. Captain Kangaroo. Mr.Peppermint. Riding my Honda on "The Ponderosa" in Bridgeport. Pong. Ringside seats at The Sportatorium to see Fritz Von Erich vs Blackjack Mulligan. Hippies. David Clyde. Laugh In. LaBella & Rody...
What a long strange trip it's been. Trust me, I'm leaving out all the juicy stuff.
And to all you kids out there, screw you! I saw all the good bands live!
