Happy Birthday Willie

Willie Nelson is 75 years old today. I hope he gets his economic stimulus check right on his birthday, and he spends the government’s money onĀ __________.

Oh, I don’t know. What do you think he should spend it on?

Happy Birthday Willie.

    A new fly rod of course! He looks like he would fit in just fine with the flyfishing crowd.

    I think I might have been at the July 4th Picnic in that first video. My memory is a little… um, hazy.

    Great lyrics. “Mule and the grasshopper eatin ice cream, mule got sick so they laid him on a beam.”

    Tell me they weren’t doing some good drugs when they wrote that line.

    Happy Birthday, Willie! You and Trigger looked like you were 75 back in 1978 and you still do. May you go another 75.

    Willie can sing you down the river. Rumor is Willie might be playing at the Red Lodge Rodeo this year, 4th of July. You could fish from Craig all the way to Red Lodge on prime trout water…and catch Willie at the end, or, just the beginning?

    It seems to me that lately your website has drifted toward the promotion of drinking alcohol,exploitation of women showing their breasts, and useage of foul language.
    Keep up the good work!

  5. Lane K — haha! fair enough. although, I think I’ve been pretty clear since the inception of this blog that I support both the drinking of alcohol and useage of foul language. my record on those two points is both well-documented and unwavering

    fishhead — I definitely need more info on Willie in Red Lodge. That sounds to die for!
