New truck

Actually used, but new to me... My truck was pretty much falling apart, so it was time to get something else. I've been looking for 3 or 4 months without any luck until now. I was taking a drive through Sanford on Saturday morning checking out all the car lots from the road. I spotted a silver Jeep Cherokee at Gibson’s that looked real clean. Took it for a test drive, and decided that I better jump on it... They wanted $8000 for it, and wanted to give me $3000 for my Tahoe as a trade in. I ended up talking them down to $7600 for the Jeep and giving me $3200 for the Tahoe. I though that was a good deal. The Jeep is a 2001 with 80k, 2 wheel drive, okay stereo it, cd player no mp3's though, but I can always change it out later... Much better on gas!

Merle Haggard – Bob Dylan

Bill and I went to see Bob Dylan at the TD Waterhouse Center last night. Before the show we eat at the Roadhouse in Altamonte, had a few beers… Bill got the Rodie, and was very impressed as I though he would be. I got a burger with the works. Very good as well… We were a little late for the show. Merle was already on stage when we got there. His band was very good... awesome Guitar player… Lots of red necks on the audience!! We must have missed Okie From Muskogee. More Beer, walked around the arena during intermission.

Old Bob Dylan takes the stage. He opens with Maggie’s Farm. Could not even recognize it. He’s change the old stuff so much that they just sound like different songs. If he’s tried of playing the old stuff, just write new songs, and let us know that you wont be playing the old stuff anymore… Mr. Tambourine Man was equally bad. William Shatners version sounds more like the original than this one... This was one of the worst shows I have ever seen… His voice was way to loud in the mix, he didn’t play guitar at all. He sat in the middle of the band and pretended to play the keyboard.

Overall, not a bad night. We had a good dinner, and drink lots of Beer. Oh, and lots of hot chicks at the show…
