Happy Birthdays to Me...

My dad and, his wife of now 20 years, Janet, used to throw the best birthday parties for me. I think I had 3 total. It included a mini sound system, (one year, Roy set up something even better and ran sound) my dad's Fender Rhodes, all my musician BFFs, hot dogs, chips, soda and cake. We had the bands play on the backyard patio, and everyone sat on blankets in the grass, and most of us smoked cigarettes. It was my favorite day of the year.

The Barnies played my 20th birthday party in 1994
