We got this fun story from Woody Diva on Tuesday, she even fixed the spelling.. Why? Regardless, as I read on, a genus idea came to light. Take it away Diva!
I was a little bit freaked by the downward slope we slid upon with the Mermaid Fender post, however I shall be calm and carry on, my head held high in honor of my prestigious title.
I lament the onset of weather that is non-conducive to Woody Boating. So I began to think of what would keep my “spirits afloat”, which always leads me to “cocktails” and the soundtracks that may accompany such moments. (All of which are so much better on my U- 22, up on plane at full throttle.)
As much as I love my Frank or Cole Porter or the late Dave Brubeck, I do love me some Rock n Roll.
So that being said, I got fully seduced by the Rolling Stones 50 year Anniversary tour and how cool that is, whether you like them or not-ROCK ON! I love anything that gets better with age and does not become a caricature of one self (think Charo, Elvis, THE Donald …the only exemption is Joan Rivers at 78 on Fashion Police, for her one word, BRILLIANT!)
I would love to see this Stones concert, however I am living in only the 2nd largest city in the USA , but noooo not coming this way. We do have a never-ending Donny and Marie marathon at the Pantages Theater no less? I am not bitter (no Stones concert is sort of like the fact we don’t have a Pro-football team either) I then started to surf the-tube and wow…for a lot less than it would have cost me to head to Brooklyn, the whole concert unfolded before me. Watch this and just think how cool is it that these guys are 68 years young on average! Have a guitarist with the name Wood and at 69 Mick can move.
Come on we all have a secret dream, one of mine has always been to be a back up singer (Tom Jones or Sting, Tina Turner) with a band and looking out upon a stadium of thousands, or be a basketball player in game 7 of the play-offs, down by 2 and drop a 3 pointer at the buzzer what an adrenaline rush! Which had to be what John Unsworth was feeling when he re-launched his Ditchburn Fisher “Wa Chee We” …Now there’s a name for the Ultimate cocktail!
Ah…that’s why for most of us when Woody Boat season takes a break, take time to dream and shake our tail feather!
