Zombie Boy

You may call me Zombie Boy tonight. We wound down after playing in Muscles Shoals (about 2 hours north of us) and got into bed at 1 a.m. I swore I would sleep in, but I woke at 5:30 a.m.  I made myself close my eyes and lay there until 6:20 before bailing out and starting the coffee.

We did take a nap after lunch which helped but both Jilda, and I were still whupped. My friend Dan
Starnes who own's Starnes Publishing invited Jilda and me to the
A launch party for a new publication. Iron City Ink is a paper that will cover downtown Birmingham. The city is undergoing a transformation, and there are so many good things happening.

The launch party was at Region's Field, which is the new baseball facility that has been in Birmingham since 1910. The Birmingham Barons, which is an affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.
When the inner city deteriorated in the 80s and 90s, the team moved to thean affluent suburb of Hoover.

But a few years ago when it was obvious the city was rebounding, corporate sponsors built a beautiful new stadium on the Southside next to Railroad Park.

I'm excited for my friend Dan. He is rocking and rolling in an industry that is in decline. He found his niche, and he's wearing it out.

We were happy to attend this milestone for Dan even though we were both frayed.
