Miss ole Freddy. Love the wiki : 'He became known for his rockabilly music and his cool persona as Eddie Con Los Shades. In 1958 he legally changed his name from Baldemar Huerta to Freddy Fender. He took Fender from the guitar and amplifier, and Freddy because the alliteration sounded good and would "sell better with Gringos!"

@Parq: I’ve been led into all kinds of nonsense by a white hind… And sometimes her front wasn’t so bad as well… *rimshot*

So... the Mother-in-law kills her son-in-law and her daughter gets to marry the king? Is that how it goes?

Say....wasn't the Golden Hind the name of Drake's ship?

I have no idea what Ms Richie looks like but i like the image in my head all these years. The name Fiona does it for me.

Love the set. Probably need some advance notice next time though to get a nice wool turtle neck on and fire up a bowl of borkum riff
