|Moments before we started playing!|
Lots of new folks hopped up to play as well as my good friends Debra Hurt and Ande Fee. Deb came up and sang "Dreams" by The Cranberries, and then Ande sang the Etta James classic "Sunday Kind of Love" and the old Hank Williams song "Cold Cold Heart". The after-party was quite the adventure, as well!
The week was fabulous, mostly teaching and a few business chats (re: Lexi Music Awards).
My actual birthday was Friday, which started with a quick visit to fix the kids breakfast, then a brutal workout at the gym, ran some errands, and then over to visit the kids for the remainder of the day. Upon arrival, I got video or 2 attempts at one-arm pull-ups....the first a trail run (and my 8 year old dancing in the foreground) and then I did the real thing. Bad form, but got one on each side. Not bad for an old guy - haha! Gonna clean up that form and take it to the next level (goal: 3 reps each arm!).

Then ate a HUGE salad (red cabbage, carrots, avocado with balsamic vinegar and oil dressing with extra pepper) and extremely rare beef seared in pepper and a splash of soy sauce. YUM! Being a Friday, I even had a second meal later in the day, and topped it off with spiced rum and a pizza party with the boys. Then one of my sons, Chris, grabbed me for a pitcher of beer & a few games of pool. The rest of the weekend was fabulous also...got to spend more time with the boys as well as see 3 of the granddaughters at a kids Halloween party!
As I do each year, I'm posting an ODIS picture (that stands for "Old Dudes In Shape") as a challenge to my buddies who also post ODIS. Good accountability and keeps us all motivated!
If you are interested in the stories & photos from past birthdays, you can start hit THIS LINK, which will list them all.

That's it for now. Gotta get to work prepping lessons, Lexi Music Awards, AMA video series, and my Monday Classic Covers video!
See y'all soon...in person, online, on TV, or wherever we shall meet!
