Okay, I said it so I'm standing by it even if I have to sit in my rocking chair to make it there. Like I've said before, I'm going to live to 156 years old. I know it sounds silly now, but if I make it then I guess I'll have the last laugh. If I don't, well, I guess I can say I've made an effort. Maybe not such a good effort, but I kept my positive mindset on the future.
Considering it's already the end of February I'd say that future is coming on pretty fast. Next thing you know it will be April and if you know about me then you know what April means. I won't even mention it here cause I probably say it enough as it is. I'll just ask you: Are you ready for April? And if you really don't know what I'm talking about then you can peruse my sidebar a bit and I'm sure you'll figure it all out somewhere along the way.
And since I've directed your attention to my sidebar, if you are not a "Bird Watcher" yet, please click on the "Join This Site" button and become a member. I'm trying to reach 2000 members before Alex J Cavanaugh does and I'm sure I can easily get there first. After all he needs something like 13 more as of this writing and he's going to have a hard time getting to 2000 before me. Even if he is offering cool prizes and stuff in his Epic Giveaway. I ain't giving away anything and I only need to get 2 or 3 more followers to make it to 2000 if my addition serves me right. Well maybe it's a few more than 2 or 3, but no big deal. Don't follow Alex to get a chance on winning really neat prizes, but follow me instead. Or you can follow both of us I guess. But me first. And, Alex, I deserve 10 points for saying this. Right? And I don't know if this mention is creative or not, but you can decide that.
By the way, since I'm talking about numbers (seems like I talk about numbers a lot), how old do you predict you'll live to be?
Battle of the Bands Results:
My Battle of the Bands post of last Saturday featured the song "Rockin" Chair" dedicated to all the old coots that didn't appreciate my 80's music showdown at the beginning of the month. This latest contest received more approval than the previous one. And it was a close one!
Hoagy Carmichael's version received 7 votes including my own. It was very close for me and I did like Eric Clapton's version quite a bit. However, that jazz violin solo in Hoagie's version cinched it for me. I love that era of music from the 20's and 30's.
Eric Clapton edged out a win with 8 votes.
Next Battle of the Bands will be another special Saturday edition on March 1st. Be there or be square.
