The iconic and masterful Leon Russell died on Saturday. He was 74. I always loved this guy since picking up a used 8 track of his in the seventies that I wore out.

Lemmy from Motorhead has passed away. I am speechless. Play some Motorhead and Hawkwind really loud in his honor. Upon arrival in the afterlife, Lemmy announced, “We are Motorhead. We play Rock & Roll. We are gonna kick your ass”. He and Philthy are together again. Fast Eddie can’t be too far behind… RIP Lemmy. Once again, I had women in my office asking me WTF I was playing on my phone. I simply said “Motorhead” and resumed working. I couldn’t bring myself to tell them that Lemmy had died. Here are some great Lemmy quotes:
“I don’t do regrets. Regrets are pointless. It’s too late for regrets. You’ve already done it, haven’t you? You’ve lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.” – via Classic Rock
“This entire generation seems to have become pussies, you know? Nobody seems to enjoy themselves much anymore. They are all knocking each other down for enjoying themselves.” – via a 1988 interview with David L. Wilson
“Death is an inevitability, isn’t it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don’t worry about it. I’m ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn’t complain. It’s been good.” – via Classic Rock
RIP Lemmy. You deserve some peace and quiet.

Trench has stepped to the plate again and saved Juggernuts from extinction. Thanks man. It has been a good ten years. The actual tenth anniversary of the birth of the Nut is 9-30-13, Monday, and I look forward to ten more. John Kerry hasn’t aged a day! Now, let’s get some more good content flowing!
Also, I got a call from my old friend Trogg last night. He had a heart attack last Thursday night/Friday morning. He is out of the hospital, OK and doing fine, but please send some love and happy thoughts his way. He mentioned that he got he nether region shaved and that reminded me to post this link. I hope to get down to see him soon and may see if we can hit an Alabama game together. He claims to have lost a lot of weight and has, as of Friday morning, quit smoking.
Finally, looks like Yarbz may be headed to the MidWest for a Juggfest in mid-November. Get your drinking boots ready. 🙄

Hard to believe that I turn 50 today. I never thought I’d make it.
Looks like the blog will live on at WordPress…

What a great time I had last Saturday night. The hospitality of Trogg and his family is truly extraordinary. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. I am always blown away by how hospitable you folks can be. The food was fantastic, but you just can’t beat the company.
I loved seeing old friends and introducing Yarbz to that part of my life. Three old friends came to the party that I have not seen in a very long time (25 years?), in addition to the ones I only see sporadically when I visit. Yarbz has promised pics soon.
I got an e-mail from Yarbz earlier this week that read “Those people know how to party”. Yes, they do. They really do.
Yarbz & I also managed to get some authentic Southern food (at least breakfast @ Fife’s and BarBQue) and even fit in a trip to Tuscaloosa Saturday morning. We went out for Chinese Buffet on Sunday morning which was exactly what my head and my belly needed after a night of heavy partying. I think Trogg and I finally called it a night at about 2:30 am Sunday morning.
I can’t wait for JuggFest South V.

My eldest daughter Elayna, known around these parts as YUM CAKES, lassoed her baby-daddy Jeremy this past Sunday!
