    Oh I wish I lived close enough to go!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Hope you can make it as well, I can't wait for it.

    If you want, maybe I can keep the boards posted on stuff going on with the museum, seeing as how I'm there 1-2 times a week?? I'm already seeing little changes here and there, and the staff has been keeping me in touch on what's coming next.

    Wish I would have known about the Symphony show earlier. I would have loved to have walked over there tonight and listened to it.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional
