Yappy Hew Near!

Posted by Richard on January 1, 2020

It’s well past midnight here in the nationally neglected Mountain Time Zone, and thus 2020 for me. The fireworks off to the west have begun to die down (all those Latinos in Lakewood sure do love their fireworks). In the living room, a 2003 Fleetwood Mac concert is playing on AXS TV (“Landslide” sounds pretty good). The prosecco bottle is getting pretty low, and I’m trying to ignore the two slices of anchovy and jalapeno pizza in the fridge.

To anyone reading this, I wish you and yours a wonderful new year. I’m going to drain that prosecco bottle, maybe listen to a little more Fleetwood Mac, and call it a night. And a year. And a decade.

    Well my friend you’re full of surprises. I would not have taken you for a Fleetwood Mac fan or a fan of Italian champagne either. I wish I could have done you did New Years eve but my doctor says absolutely
    NO alcohol for me Italian or otherwise.

      Well, they really did do some great music, especially in the early years. So I don’t hold their lefty craziness against them. Hey, before that came on, I saw not one, but two Eagles concerts on the same channel. One was from Melbourne in the early 2000s, and the other was from their 1994 “Hell Freezes Over” reunion tour.

      One of the best concerts I ever attended was the Eagles in the middle of a big field near Knoxville doing a “quadrophenic” concert for their On The Border tour (’73?). Rufus featuring Shaka Khan was the warmup. There were 4 giant towers of speakers at the four corners of the field, and it really was four-channel sound. Ahh, the good old days.
