Shadow, that Diamonds and Rust album was one of my favorites. Still have it on the Ipod.

You know what they always say, "You're only as old as the women you feel."

I had a spanish professor in college who was in her sixties. She told me once that if she didn't have a mirror, she would swear she was still in her 20's. ..
That is so , so true Dylan...
She was a very cool lady, steve. You would have liked her. I really didn't care much for spanish classes at the time (nor did I have time for it... I had graduate courses and 18cr semesters and labs and chit), but whenever I had a couple free minutes I'd sit and chat with her. She was puerto rican. I always told her I didn't need to study because I learned spanish from playing billiards with the mexicans at the cantina. LOL..
She'd get soooo pissed off at me, and she'd yell.... "You don't speak to the mexicans, David! (my spanish name was david) They teach you DIRTY words!"
Very funny lady.

Sixpack, maybe we should have a Hurricane "sock hop" for all our "senior" members?
That would be "boss".
