Please pause for a moment and respect the man, the legend, my future husband - The GREAT Willie Nelson on his 75th birthday. I have a big plans to post about all of our special moments together, me and Willie, but somebody has to work.
I will tell you that in 1995 I scalped two tickets to see him play a small club in lower Manhattan - Tramps. Anybody been there? It has long since closed, but the peculiar thing about Tramps was that it didn't have a back door and the performers had to enter through the front. Knowing this, I camped with my 35mm camera (before digital, people) and got a quick pic of myself and the red headed stranger cheek to cheek! It is an amazing picture, absolutely priceless. I proudly displayed the framed photograph at both my office and my New York City apartment. When co-workers and friends would look at the picture, they would more often than not, honestly say:
"Is that your Dad?"
