Billy Hill - St. Mary's Landing

I attended a Beverage Association meeting yesterday along several other beverage licensees.  One of the attendees at the meeting was Billy Hill owner of St. Mary's Landing.  I did not get a chance to talk to him following the meeting, but did have to smile when I saw this posted by his daughter on You Know You're From St. Mary's FB page.

If you click on the above link and scroll down to the actual post, you will find a number of comments talking about Billy's St. Mary's Landing and its previous owners Frank Abell and Steve Dulin.  

I was helping Brady yesterday when the following song began playing on the radio that he had tuned to a rock station out of Richmond.  As the song began I thought "That sure sure sounds like the Eagles' tune Boys of Summer."  

Turns out that I was correct and after commenting to Brady he informed me that this song has been around awhile and that they changed the "Saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac" line to "a Black Flag sticker."  I listened for the line and once I heard it thought "that doesn't work" mostly because I didn't know who Black Flag was.  Just proves what an old fart I am.  But as one of the video's commentators noted - you know you're old when a 2003 cover of a 1984 song makes you feel nostalgic.  Nostalgia is one thing; not getting the reference is another matter completely!
