Born with his Voyageur's hat on and ready to paddle.
In time honored tradition, a Geburtstagbrau was brewed in his honor.
This is the King Arthur IPA, which should be ready for raising a toast in mid-March so watch for a meeting. The inset is Bosco's brewmeister Fred Scheer checking the specific gravity on the K.A. IPA.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) the smartest, hardest-rocking latino revolutionary Elvis impersonator anywhere is going to be in Nashville to perform and emcee at Katy K's Valentine Girlesque Revue at Mercy Lounge. How many other recording artists (excluding a certain RRCC recording artist) wear red-white-and-green jump suits with a sequined Virgin of Guadalupe on the back? And of those, how many make burn-down-the-barn rocking political commentary with a medley of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, Jesus Christ Superstar, Low Rider, Maggie May and Losing My Religion? Not many and we're going.
Click here for a sample - and a history lesson of a Mexican war hero: "The Arm of Obregon"
We will meet at 8:30 p.m. at Brown's and go from there. Last year the RRCC was going all the way to Atlanta to see him, but they cancelled the show. According to his tour information, the only announced dates are in California, Vancouver and one night in Nashville. Just pray that he's bringing the Elvettes with him . . .
Priscillita and Lisa Maria
Que Linda Thompson
This performance is only one part of a much bigger show. It appears that we will have to sit through a few burlesque strip tease shows while we wait for El Vez.
And….world's collide! Here is R.L. Burnside himself in an Elvette sandwich. Can you believe it?
Brown's at 8:30 pm. Then to Mercy Lounge.

We think winter is going to end early and it's time to get the paddling gear ready and make other preparations.
In Telfs, Austria, "Wild Men" wear suits of tree lichen during Schleicherlaufen, a festival that celebrates winter's end.
Each RRCC member is responsible for gathering enough lichen for his own suit and finding a face gourd they like before the festival (date and place TBA). Also, we need to do an accounting for the hats, koozies and Mike's shish kabbos. I'll post the totals here.

That's ok, we're a football school anyway.
