Happy Birthday, Willie Nelson!

Happy Birthday, Willie Nelson!

Some reports show Willie’s birthday as being on the 30th of April, but his daughter tells this story.  I like to celebrate on the 29th and 30th!

“Dad celebrated his birthday on the 29th of April until he was 18 years old and went into the Air Force. He had to finally get a birth certificate and it said he was born on the 30th. Not to argue with the government we celebrated his birthday on the 30th for about 40 years.  One day while visiting with his cousin, who was there the night he was born, Mildred said no, he WAS in fact born a few minutes before midnight on the 29th and Dr. Simms didn’t record the birth until after midnight. As it turns out we get TWO days to shower Dad with love and tell him how much he means to us.”

    What a nice birthday story. Which daughter told that story? Was it Amy?
    Willie and Amy Nelson sent this to us earlier today and asked us to pass it around. This is Willie’s birthday wish.

    If you know anyone to send this to we are most appreciative for spreading the word.
