Speaking of Lynn Allen

If I had the time, the money and the talent I would host a Beethovens reunion.

Who knows, maybe it's been done already and I missed it. I have been in the Des Moines area for almost eight years yanno.

Happy Belated Fourth!

Been busy working and going through a bit of a down mood. I do believe I am having a mid life crisis. My creativity feels like it had been sucked dry. Now I have a 100 projects going on in my head just waiting to come to fruition.

We went to the Fourth of July celebration at Centennial Park in Waukee . First time we have ever been to the park. Very nice. Food vendors, giant blow-up jumpy things and a band called Standing Hampton. They are really good. Of course they play 70's/80's rock. All us 40 and 50 somethings out there head banging. Then I realized...Oh mah Gawd! This is the oldies!

I closed my eyes for a moment and when I opened them I was taken back 20+ years. There were all the people from back in the day; Sandy, Lori, Dennis, Danny, Theresa, the hair flip boys, Plastic Candy, Lynn Allen, (Oh poop, they played in Eldridge on the Fourth. So bummed), Marge, Dave, Ronnie, Timmy and everyone else that crossed my path in the 80's. Very weird, very surreal.

Those were the best of times, those were the worst of times.
