Heavy Metal Senior

Posted: May 22, 2011 in 21st Century, Rock n Roll

Rosie presents Art with a birthday cake for his 60th Birthday. Yes, the sparklers were lit (and Sparkling!), but by the time I took this photo, the sparklers had extinguished themselves. Kevin can be seen behind Rosie.

So now it’s “Art the Fart the Heavy Metal Senior”! Yes, that day has come – not the much-hyped End of the World As We Know It , but pretty damn close to it. (That “rapture” baloney was a dud, wasn’t it? No surprise there!) A large group of old friends & relatives gathered on May 21, 2011 to wish Art a happy birthday now that he’s rapidly aging and singing songs like “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Walker”. (Things start to drop off now, don’t they?) We assembled at Art’s house, mainly so he wouldn’t have far to stagger home, but also because there was food & adult beverages coming out the ying-yang, not to mention a wild & demented jam. Surviving members of Sparkling Apple (notably Captain Maniac and Kevin Swain) were on hand to rock the joint and thoroughly annoy the neighbours, as was Ding, Woody, Joe Staples, Eddie Spaghetti, Al, Ken and a host of well-oiled dancin’ fools! Rosie was a terrifically gracious hostess, and nobody got tossed in the pool (in part due to the absence of a pool). More photos to follow: watch our website and Sit-On-My-Facebook.
