Debbie and I went to Bandido Smokey’s birthday party today out at Ernie’s on the Lake. We had the down stairs room with Air Conditioning, which was really nice, since it was kind of warm today. The room was decorated nicely in his favorite colors, red and gold of course, and quite a few people showed up to wish Smokey a happy birthday. One of the highlights of the day was that one of Smoky’s friends that owns a ski boat came and a bunch of us got to go for a ride out on the lake. That was very nice, and certainly the highlight for this of us that don’t get to go boating very often. Later there was cake and dancing. The band was great, playing lots of oldies I liked. Smokey even got up there to help out.
