Same summer that I kissed her on her daddy's boat,
and shot across the lake, Yeah!
--David Lee Roth, A Little Ain't Enough, 1991
Here in the Ohio valley spring has sprung. Everything is in blossom and and the air smells of nature flexing long disused muscles. They say in the spring, a young man's thoughts turn to love, but I don't believe that. It's just because his sap is rising like everything else.
Thinking of spring leads me to contemplate the coming summer, and thinking of summer makes me think of good times, cold beer, and warm summer nights under the stars at the Tiki bar, with rock and roll music playing in the background.
It also makes reminds me that we are hosting a blogger get-together Saturday, 5/31/08, at Mulligan's Pub (4118 Beldon Village St. NW, Canton Oh. 44718. Phone (330) 493-8249) I can't honestly picture a better place to have it. It is a beautiful bar done in dark wood, brass, and has the feel of a good Irish pub throughout, and kilts are welcome. This is an open welcome, come one-come all. We have half a dozen rsvp's from some of the heartland's best bloggers, as well as a few sorrowful can't make it's. It promises to be an evening fraught with fun. Just a reminder to rsvp, as we only have so many hats for "silly hat night".
Speaking of silly, have I got a gem for you. David Lee Roth doing what "Diamond Dave" does best. See if you can count the number of women in this video. (76 by my count) Now count the number of midgets. (8 or 9 perhaps) How many times does he kick like a Chuck Norris wannabe? (couldn't be bothered to count) In my mind, nothing says "Rockstar" like a pink Jeep, but pay very close attention to the end of the video and see how Mr. Roth pictures himself in the year 2021, on Oct. 10th.
I purchased this album from the bargin bin for $8. That was at least 17 years ago. I've gotten my $8 out of it.
