Happy birthday, Paul. Hope to see you at the Canadian Round Up in May.
Thanks everyone! I write this with a somewhat foggy and slightly pounding head, at a little past noon...
That can only mean one thing — a fine celebration was had!
(I tried to write this at 3am last night, but gave up trying.)
Happy birthday, Paul. I think that you are overdue to pay a visit to Sacto, aren't you? I hope that your birthday was a great one.
Sorry I missed the big day, Paul, but it sounds like you had a great time .
Many Happy (late) returns, sir!!
Well dang, I missed it too. Hope you saved me some cake.
Happy day-after-birthday, Paul. You're a pretty good guy to have around.
No worries belated-ites, you're all still in synch, because there's a devious stratagem (a nefarious plot you might say) —which is already in place— that will extend this nonsense into next weekend. So apparently I've learned nothing from a mild hangover. Instead, I'm leaning in... welcome to the sixth decade.
Bob, my Sack o' tomatoes trip has already come and gone... I was out in mid-January for only 10 days. It was very much a working visit (my own work, and lotsa stuff to do for mom), so unfortunately there was no free fun time to be had.
However I was able to squeeze in a very short get-together with Matt Codina, who it so happens currently lives near my mom — in fact the next town over. He's a good friend of Tavo's (which is how I met him, sort of, via Buddy Dughi), and I'd first met him surrounding some NAMM events in 2014, but it was very brief. What a great privilege it was to hang with him for a few hours! He's one badass player who does everything from Chet to Merle to Scotty and everything in between. All on a killer TK Smith rig.
I know, I should snapped some pics. But it DID happen.
