No, I’m not paying my friend Mike Piper, I’m paying the guy that collects dues when you’ve screwed up. I went to St, Rocke in Hermosa last night with Becky to see Richie Furay (ex of Buffalo Springfield and Poco). Old folks’ party. Great show, but I had a burger and fries along with five pints of Strand Brewing Company Amber Ale for dinner. Great beer, but not great for my diet. Now, I’m paying the piper. Without really trying, I’m gaining weight. No wonder I’m in the shape I’m in.
