More things to DO
I recently started a list of things Id like to do by the time I turn 50. Now I am going to add to that list. List-writing fits the bill for a hungover Easter Friday morning.
For my Birthday celebrations last night, the girlfriends and I went to see the band Mental As Anything, at our local club. In Australia, having the Mentals play at your local club is like, I dunno, having Bruce Springsteen suddenly do a live gig in your town. The Mentals were huge in the 1980s. Most of our town was there last night, and I know so many of them. We might be middle-aged parents, but we can still dance. It was like a huge Birthday party all for me.
Pardon me dear readers for I have sinned. I confess to: champagne, vodka, beer, and Jack Daniels. OUCH!!!!!!!!! My sore head.....
(I promise you, I only go crazy like that once every 5 years or so.)
So, here goes with my continued list. It starts with Item 15. (Items 1 to 14 appeared in a previous post here.)
