It's been a long time, about 17 years, since I last saw my favorite band. I sort of lost touch with them after becoming a husband and a parent. Their tours have stopped in New Mexico, so I don't have a good excuse for missing them during recent tours. I could go on about my Rush hiatus, but I think I'll save that for another post.
One of my son's friends came over one day about a year ago sporting a Vapor Trails tour t-shirt. His mom had taken him to see the show, how cool is that? This was the seed germinated with the news that Rush was to open their time Machine Tour in Albuquerque.
So we went and we had a blast. This was the set from Ryan's and Owen's first real rock show, Rush! Also, pictures!
Two weeks ago I took delivery of yet another project, a 1954 Chevy pickup. It's a 3100 1/2 ton, to be precise. She's mine in trade for a web site I put together a few years ago for The Service Station down in Albuquerque. She's not pretty, but I absolutely love her.
Wow, I almost forgot that this site existed, despite adding it to my Facebook profile. It's probably quite obvious that this site hasn't been updated in a long, long time. The photo album is broken too.
We were pretty busy this year, but you wouldn't know it by looking at our photos. I finally got around to uploading nearly a year's worth of pictures from things we've done since Thanksgiving last year.
It's that time of year again. Fantasy football time! This is my fourth year in a Yahoo! league with the same core group of guys. I had a strong first year, a sophomore slump, won it all, and just barely limped into the playoffs last year.
You know, on the way over, I decided to listen to a rock station to get into the mood. And I heard a line in one of those tribal passages that I thought was the keynote for this evening. "Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight."
