Happy Birthday Fred

Today was our buddy Fred's birthday. He was 49 today. His family is scattered and he didn't have anything planned so Jilda invited him over for her world famous Spaghetti (my words, not hers). Steve, our "Overall" buddy came over too. so we celebrated with Fred. For desert we had brownies with Briar's Chocolate Crackle ice cream. Yum!
Fred don't talk much, but from what we have gleaned, he's packed a lot of living in his 49 years. He talked a little about what brought him to Alabama from West Virginia. His first gig back in 1983 here went south and he had to scrape together enough money to get a bus ticket back home.
I'm not sure what brought Fred back to Alabama. He is a counselor where Jilda works and apparently he is really good at his job. It's funny how paths cross. Fred showed up at a time in our lives where the things he knows and loves (music/sound/performing) dovetails nicely with the things we know and love. As I said, I'm not sure brought him back here, but I'm glad he's here.
Happy Birthday to Fred.
