My Dad is cooler than your Dad


Image hosting by Photobucket




A few weeks ago, my Dad took a trip down to the Mississippi delta to see the roots of the Blues. While there, he went to a series of unbelievably run-down juke joints (some that I'd think twice about going into) and took in some real, no-bullshit blues including convicted murderer T-Model Ford (pictured above). An interviewer once asked Ford how many times he'd been to jail, and he replied "I dunno, how many?" before settling on "pretty much every Saturday for awhile." That'd be enough to give ME the blues.

My dad's been to prison for making money. It's true! A counterfeiting mastermind (Well, he would have been a mastermind had he gotten away with it). Dammit.
