SPAMBOT, ME? GOOD GRIEF!

FAILED VISUAL VERIFICATION!
PLEASE ENTER CORRECT VISUAL VERIFICATION CODE TO PROCEED.

Good golly, I just wanted to post a comment!  I swear, its probably easier to cross the US border illegally than it is to post a comment on some blogs.  This is crazy. They use camouflaged letters on a patterned background and half the time you have to be a computer to break the code.  Homeland Security could learn a thing or two from some of these 'visual verification programmers', cos those guys are good!  As for me, I'm getting too old for tests, thank you very much.

Dickidoo and I went to the Journey / Def Leppard concert on Tuesday.  What a show!  Those guys are every bit as old, if not older, than I am, and from 39 seats back they look as good as ever. Talk about awesome!  They've been singing for decades and still sound the same.   Unfortunately our seats were right behind a major beer intake and output crossing.  I spent half of the show watching strangers butts pass within inches of my face on their way to get beer, then back to their seat, then to the john to make room for more beer, then back to their seat, then back for more beer, etc.  And being as the audience was from the same generation as Dickidoo and I, they weren't even 'hot buns of steel', they were droopy, sagging and over stuffed.  Not something you want jiggling in front of your face on a hot summer night.  Oh well, at least the music was good.  And Dickidoo treated me to a Journey hoodie.  (Thanks love!)  Oh... and when you have the chance, check out Def Leppard's 'Rock On'.  Its not as good as David Essex (lets face it, nobody is as good as David Essex!), but they run a close second.

And finally, but most importantly,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GABRIEL!

The comments thingy on blogger has a handicap symbol under the scrambled letters. That cracks me up!
I saw Def Leppard twice back in the day!  Never made it to a Journey concert.
Happy Birthday, Gabe!

Also, do the kids get a lot of jokes about their last name?
:p

It looks like Gabe is somewhat less than enthusiastic about your Birthday greeting. Either that, or he's trying to show you a boo-boo on his fingernail.
