    Signs of old age

    I have to admit I started seeing some signs of old age last week. I had some friends come up from Florida and we went into NYC to go see the Dropkick Murphy concert which is an awesome Irish band out of Boston. Anyway, I primed up before going in and went right into the center middle front stage. After about ten elbows to the face a few hits to the chest and about 20 shoulder checks and about 10 spilled beers on my shirt I decided to throw in the towel. Oh yeah this was all in 15 minutes. Years ago I was up there until the final song but this time I felt myself breaking through the crowd to go stand on the outer sides of the Roseland Ballroom. Some of my other friends hung in there until the end, then I had to catch you know what on the way home. It was a good time though, just not my style of concert anymore. Maybe I'll try a Jimmy Buffet concert. lol

    I realized I was old when I stopped taking drugs and started taking medication. I haven't been to a concert other than Buffett in a couple years, I got tired of the same types of things. The only down side of Buffett shows are the idiots that are so drunk they will never remember a single note of the show. Skip the lawn seats and sit up front.
