They say all great things must come to an end. Soon my favorite, super cool Bob Seger t-shirt from 1978 is about to come to an end. It's not one of those shirts that are made to look old, it's the real deal. It celebrates a musical event that took place four months before the day of my birth. After I bought it five years ago on e-bay, I knew it's days were numbered. My decision was to either find a way to preserve it or to wear it loud and proud. In a way I've done both.
My decision was to wear it. I've spent some great times with friends, enjoyed many a delicious beer and relaxed in the Traverse City summer time in this shirt. And of course cranked up "Against the Wind" while driving with the windows down and wearing this t-shirt. But it's threads are wearing thin and the holes are not getting smaller so it's time for retirement is upon us.
So now I sort of get to preserve it. Although I'm bummed it's on its way out, I'm happy to be able to post it on my blog in all it's colorful glory.

play on my brotha!!!

It seems like yesterday,
but it was long ago.
Janey was lovely; she was the queen of my nights.
There in the darkness with the radio, playing low.
And the secrets that we shared,
the mountains that we moved,
Caught like wildfire out of control
till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove.

And I remember what she said to me.

How she swore that it never would end.
Em D C
I remember how she held me, oh so tight.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Against the wind. We were running against the wind.

We were young and strong, we were running against the wind.
