Gone fishin… Giant squid taco anyone?

Above: Tracie B gave me a pair of Fender Stratocaster head-stock cuff links as an early present for my birthday this year. The last year has been one of the best of my life… Meeting Tracie B and moving to Austin… but more on that tomorrow… :-)

Today is my birthday and so I’m taking the day off… goin’ fishin’, so to speak.

In the meantime, I’m going to relish every last drop of anticipation for the 1999 Barbaresco Santo Stefano by Giacosa that Tracie B is treating me to tonight to celebrate…

In other news… holy giant squid taco Batman!

In all my years growing up in La Jolla, I never saw anything like this. The video below was shot just a stone’s throw from where I lived as a kid and not far from where my mom and brother and his family live still. Amazing…

    If I wasn’t convinced before, those cufflinks did it. Now if they were only teles…..

    eric, that’s exactly what i thought. i prefaced the gift with “i know you have a telecaster, but they only had stratocaster ones…”

    but he has a strat too! who knew!

    I can’t get over those Fender cufflinks… I know an older gentleman (who looks a lot like me) who’d really dig those.
