HAPPY MARGARITA DAY!
"A Tradition Since 1986... Except For 1994."
MY FRIENDS, MY FRIENDS ~
It was on January 1, 1986, that my Pa started the tradition of having a Margarita (or two... or more) on every New Year's Day, which came to be called "Margarita Day". Somehow we both inexplicably forgot to have a Maggie on January 1, 1994, and that's how the humorous slogan came to be. Sadly, on April 10, 1996, my Pa passed on, but I have kept our tradition alive every year since then.
My non-drinking friends (yes, I have a few) may need to be informed that the principal liquor in a Margarita is tequila (also known as "cactus poison"). If you didn't know that, this Battle Of The Bands installment wouldn't make much sense.
1) listen to these two songs,
2) vote for your favorite one in the comment section,
3) visit & vote on the BOTB installments posted at the other participants' blogs, and then
4) go out and have a Margarita (or two... or more) to celebrate the start of the New Year!!

Have You A Happy New Year, Y'All!
