Seems like we did this once on the BNBB, or something similar.  I'm up to 38 and hoping to at least double that...

And you'll be fine so long as you don't get your knickers all bent out of shape when Bush gets reelected...

:g

Um... I'm hoping Jeb never gets elected in the first place! B-)

Same here. Shall we form a club?

Fortysomething Republicans who know in their hearts that they should really be Democrats? :P

I was in college in Madison when Chuck Nessa sold records there...

I was in graduate school there, and met Chuck when I went by the record store and was amazed by the Art Ensemble window display, lps by Roscoe, Lester, et al.

Asking who did it, I met Chuck. (Didn't know who it was I met until telling this story online, and Chuck said it was him). Caught the AEC performing in Spring '72 at the Newman (Roman Catholic) Center just off campus.

Chuck used to run a record-store operation here in Bloomington, too. There's a guy here who hosts and performs in a weekly jazz gig here who still talks of his awe as a teenager at going in to buy AEC records, and how Chuck brought them to B-town for a concert.

Actually Michael Bourne was in charge of the concert. "Babycakes" as Mike would say.

My occupational travels moved us in an Iowa City, Chicago, Bloomington, Madison, Boston, Chicago, Whitehall adventure.

Turning 52 this month, which really freakin floors me :rhappy:

Fortunately, I'm chronically immature :rolleyes:

BTW, what up with those octo- and nono- genarians? The need to get with the program!

Let's make this a little more interesting. Howzabout we mention a recording that was made close to or on our birthdate, or at least during that year.

I was born the day after this was recorded.

Old enough to retire this year.

How old is that in France? 37?

Coincidentally, that's my age.

Old enough to have seen the one and only Clifford Brown!

Is he some rock star? :huh:

Made you feel old! :P
