Happy 67th to Stevie Wonder

I first saw him in a free concert venue at the Pacific National Exhibition here in Vancouver in 1962. The marquee called him Little Steven Wonder. We thought he wasn't really blind because he came so close to the edge of the stage without falling off, so we figured he had to be able to see and his blindness was just some kind of bizarre marketing scam.

We were wrong about his vision, but we were sure right about his ability to belt out some R&B. He had the kind of talent that made everyone in hearing range smile and bob to the beat. And he was already very, very cool. Smile

My dad took me to see Little Stevie Wonder when I was four or five. First show I remember attending. He's always been a favorite of mine also

The Oreno and Valandraud were from Miami Atty - FKG made a crazy meal -

Chicken and Onion Empanadas

Rib Roast
Roasted Potatoes
Roasted Garlic
Asparagus (I think - not that I had any)
Individual chocolate dessert with raspberry sauce

Impressive list of food and wine! Rib roast is probably my favourite meal.

First time I had the Match Baconbrook was at at one of the first CDPs, perhaps the one we attended together? Second time was at the famous gas station wine store and restaurant with jorgerunfast and his brother. Haven't had or even seen it since!

And haggis, we will expect a similar accounting of your upcoming Bacchanalian weekend once you've recovered from it!!
