To celebrate the birthday of musician Tom Waits, Melinda and I bought tickets to a show in Ballard at which oodles of local bands were playing nothing but Tom Waits songs. That’s a pretty good idea, if you ask me.
In fact, it reminds of the time Melinda & I hosted a birthday party for Tom Waits. We invited him and a bunch of our friends, telling them to each bring Tom a present. If he wasn’t able to make it we’d trade gifts, all ending up with something meant for him. He wasn’t able to make it (my conclusion when he no-showed) so we divvied up the presents.
I got a candle intended to help me get good deals on eBay. Cool.
This picture is from the bar at which the show was held. It’s Melinda, if you can’t tell, getting ready to order us a couple of drinks.
