In '65, he was 17......

and I was being born...but oh man do I love Jackson Browne! Seriously....who CARES that he was 17 the year I was born....older men just do something for me apparently! I was so very lucky to see him live and in person from the third row in a very intimate setting (okay..not intimate like THAT! LOL)....a great acoustical set...back in ...oh...I think it was 2003 when he was here. I won two tickets, limo and dinner for two from a local radio station. I was a lunatic and entered that contest CONSTANTLY and OMG did I just about DIE when they called my name out over the radio! YES! I won! I called up a great groovy girlfriend who would appreciate his music (current spouse would DEFINITELY not appreciate he was out)....we had such a great time! Just Jackson and all of his guitars...and a keyboard. It was pure heaven. This man....I don't know....his music speaks to me....and...well....yeah...he is a fine, fine specimen of a man!

Check him out here with his fabulous "These Days" and check out that MUG! LOL

Okay---stand in line ladies...he's mine! LOL

Uh, excuse me he's my next husband! Did you see him on the Ed Begley, Jr. show on HGTV? His home is completely off the grid. I have loved him since I discovered The Pretender when I was nine or so. Yes, I was a bit dark back in the day....LOL...I know what you mean about his music speaking to you. I've seen him in concert a few times, once with the spousal unit who I have to say woke up one night when I was listening to Fountain of Sorrow and said, "OMG, that song is absolutely incredible." My DH prefers Prince to Jackson but it didn't stop him from letting me a son after him. LOL. Have you seen the Going Home video--it was on Disney years and years ago, I scored one for $9.99 at my FYE one day. It was like the powers that be knew my video tape was busted and it was $60 on Amazon at the time, I just found it behind the CDs in a bin for $10. Sometimes the stars do line up just right.
