dear saint willie:
please watch over my friend jim as he begins his journey. his nickname is Sunshine, which seems ironic till you get to know him. and then you’ll love him as much as we do.
please take care of him, don’t give him any one-column 42 pt hed orders, and maybe see to it that the chiefs win the super bowl this year. unless the cardinals clinch the nfc, in which case we never spoke.
six years i knew him. ain’t it funny how time slips away? hey, maybe you could make that into a song. you’re welcome.
anyhow, he’s a good guy. he’s going to make a great addition to your band. please tell him i said hey.
thanks for hearing my prayer, saint willie. unless it turns out you’re still alive, in which case HOLY CRAP WILLIE NELSON IS STILL ALIVE????
