to a friend

No need for a theme.

I am attending a “celebration of life” tomorrow, in which I am the Mixologist, by request.

I take this request too personally, to post anything else, this weekend.

This is the Mixology List, that will play at Trish’s Celebration of Life, tomorrow.

Cindy?  I hope, I pray – I bleeping hope and pray, I do Trish proud.

Also, no picks this week, other than Chiefs win and cover the 10 1/2 easily.  Sue me; I’m still reeling from two heavy blows from Wednesday, only one of which involved the Royals.

For those of you expecting tailgating and/or other info: we’ll be in our spot by 7am Sunday; menu is steak soup, apple pie shots, and brats, with a healthy serving of more alcohol than we can consume, to boot.  

As always, all are welcome, no matter what.

This post is to Trish, and damn girl, am I going to cry at least six times tomorrow afternoon, at the honor, and the privilege, your roommate Cindy gave me, to put together the theme, to celebrate your amazing life.

The Pool will never be the same, without you.

God got greatness, when He got you, this week.

(Songs on the Mixology list listed in alphabetical order ... save for the last one, that defines tomorrow for me, and many others as well ...)
