Happy Birthday to Dawn!

This Saturday is my sister Dawn’s birthday. I won’t say how old she is because I don’t think it’s polite to ask a lady her age or declare it to anyone else. I will say she’s five years younger than me. My ex wife once described Dawn as ‘the ultimate rock chick,’ though I prefer to the term ‘metal maiden.’ Ever since she was in high school, Dawn has been very heavily into hard rock and heavy metal. Back in the 1980s, she was a very big Dokken fan and probably still is.

However, there was a time when she could have gone in another musical direction. Back in junior high, she was into the Bee Gees and all that disco crap. Fortunately, she grew out of it. She once said that she should put her disco records on a bonfire. Furthermore, during her disco days, she used to roll her eyes at me listening to bands like Jefferson Starship and The Cars.

These days, actually for many years now, Dawn is a true metalhead. She still listens to metal and always will, I hope. We went to several concerts together back in the day and it would be nice to go to one together for old times sake. Therefore, I hope you will all join me in wishing Dawn a very happy birthday.
