Happy 14th birthday Chapo!
My son Nick turned 14 years old today. Land sakes, where did the time go? Seems like yesterday that I delivered this 10 lb. 9 1/2 oz. baby. Man, time sure does fly. I'm not feelin' old yet, so that's a good sign. Nick's been driving since he was six. The boy drives better than me. He'll get his permit next year and drive at sixteen. Already. I'm comfortable with that, especially out in this part of the country. Not much going on around here, very little traffic, only cattle to watch out for mostly. Just hope the insurance policy won't exceed a thousand clams a year. All's I know is, he best not crash my Cowboy Cadillac. If he does, he'll wear it as a hat. Took him and a buddy out for supper to celebrate. We went to Escondidas, a local Mexican restaurant here in Presidio. Played songs on the new jukebox, ate green enchiladas, and played a couple games of nine ball. After that, headed home to la casa to watch the sunset and listen to King George. Life is good.
