This bird you cannot change

It's almost Thanksgiving so I figure I should give thanks today, and party my ass off tomorrow.

This photo is from my "Stevie Nicks rocker years". From those hazy years I wrote the autobiographical book, "Flying High with Stevie Nicks". I was really a mess back then, but it made me who I am today. As they say, "if it doesn't break you, it will make you".

I'd like to give my thanks to Stevie in the form of a song....

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Gretchen I love the free bird that you are! By the way, after Bruce Endres measured the fall, which I know was bad for sure, it was a 14 foot fall, as opposed to the 20-30 foot fall I was first told. Luckily Harrod seems mighty good actually, and Rick looks great these days. Rick will be here on Tday too.

Hold on to your copy of "Flying high", since it's out of print it's probably worth a fortune by now!

Those days are gone. I wrote the book as a way of letting go. My next book will called something like, "My best friend, Hillary".
