Lordy Lordy next year CBT will be Forty!

You will have to excuse me but as of late my friends that went to high school or college have now reached that milestone age of 40 and a lot of them dread it. I don’t know if it is a self examination that they ‘should be’ here in their life or what but I have to say poppycock and “bring it on biotch” I am ready! Pretty much my entire life I have always hung with people whose bodies may be older than me but the mind and spirit is that of a 20 something that has a thirst for life. I mean hell, even Ms Trumpet ‘cougar ed’ me as she is a couple years older than me, we both love life and never pass on a challenge or new experience.
Case in point are our friends of the ACMB, here you have a melting pot of people from all across the country/world and yet you put us on an island down off the coast of Belize and it is like a family reunion. The only time that age is ever brought up with that group is when we are discussing the age of Rum or ‘a shitload of dewars’! I don’t think that we have ever laughed as much with our friends down there as we did this past February – Good times.
So on to Carbunkle Trumpet’s now official 39th birthday as we celebrated it last weekend, Friday evening we went over to a friend’s house for dinner, drinks and a great time was had by all. I must admit that I am not a fan of surprise parties or fanfare, I would prefer a good ole party with friends and let there be a little cake too but that is about it. Saturday, we headed over to AutoZone Park for the exhibition game between the Cardinals and our AAA team the Redbirds and with the weather, the cold beer, the fresh peanuts everyone had a great time. The afternoon was followed up with a trip to see Barbara Blue at Silky’s on Beale and due to the early start the majority of us were in bed rather early so the weekend was a success.
Good times and check back with me in about 11 months on what we will do for Carbunkle’s Making 40 his Biotch Celebration, it is going to be a fun one!
