So my Louisiana wife has gone full on Mardis Gras for my bday

My birthday is officially in about 14mins...I had just taken the dogs out one last time, checked on the kids, and was headed to bed when I see these headlights pull in our drive. I watch from a side window as this person steps out and starts planting letters and signs all across our front yard...so yeah, the whole neighborhood will wake up to a full front yard display prounouncing that Iím turning 40! LOL...she got me, but I canít wait until she turns forty in a few months!

29. I pretty much thought the same thing

As a Texan, I remember my first impression of Louisianans. I was a kid attending a football game, Rice University vs LSU. We walked past the LSU side of the stadium and I asked my mother "What's that smell?" They love their booze.

16. Excellent!

Love it! Thank you! (As an aside, last week I picked up a sweet vinyl copy of ??The White AlbumĒ, complete with inserts, for 5 bucks at a local used record/book shop that was closing. They said they hadnít had a chance to listen to it or price it and it looked like it had scratches....wrong, a little vinyl cleaner and brush over and it is perfect!)

21. SCORE!

I can't believe it still had the inserts!

God, I love vinyl! My next project is rehabbing a big old console record player I got from a buddy's grandmother. I got a funny story about the beginning of my vinyl collection for ya.

Me n Mrs. Glamrock bought our house in '01. It's a big cross shaped A frame. All tongue in groove pine on the inside. Very 70's but alas, no shag carpet. LOL. Well, the walls had been stained but not sealed so they didn't reflect light very well. I borrowed some scaffolding so I could apply a couple 2 or 3 coats of poly-acrylic. Unfortunately, because of the pitch of the roof, I could only put up two levels of scaffolding in the great room. Had to put a two step kitchen ladder on top to reach the highest points.

Now, the last owner left an orange crate of vinyl behind. There was some really good stuff in there! Allmans, Traffic, Joe Walsh, Aerosmith, ZZ Top's Rio Grande Mud, etc. So I ran out and bought a record player and got ready for this job in the great room.

I put on record 1 side 1 of Harrison's All Things Must Pass. Smoked a bowl, climbed up had a smoke and got ready to start. Ceiling is like 22 feet at the peak. So, I'm way up there baby! I start climbing this little ladder and I'm feeling the scaffolding swaying. I'm completely freaked out. And I'm cussing myself. "Dumbass! What were you thinking getting stoned before you came up here?! Damnit! Damnit! Idiot. Damnit!" Ten minutes later, I'm on one foot reaching waayyy over here and all's cool.

Pretty soon, the record ends. Climb down, use the potty, swig some Dew, and flip the record. Well.......as long as I'm down here..... Yeah, my dumb ass fired up again. Climbed back up and... "Dumbass! What were you thinking getting stoned before you came up here?! Damnit! Damnit! Idiot. Damnit!" LOL!

I did that all the way around the room! Apparently, it takes a pothead a minute to learn a lesson.

24. No doubt brother, no doubt.

Not exactly one of my proudest moments. But it does make a pretty funny story so at least I got that out of it. That and sheer terror for ten minutes at a time!

15. Happy Birthday!

Feb. 4 is my birthday as well. I was just about to wish Happy Birthday to a man who was born on Feb 4 in the same year as I, Dan Quayle. The favorite people of mine with whom we share this birthday are Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Rosa Parks. Alice Cooper is another one.

20. Happy birthday.

When your wife's birthday occurs you could always go with the spooky theme with tombstones in your yard that have "RIP, our 30s".
