Spent the majority of the day with Sandy.  Took a vacation day.  Those are dangerous, especially when we go to a music store!

I could have used a weekend at the Embassy Suites and would have loved to show you guys some southern hospitality but my wife is still recovering.

Seriously if your ever close again it would be my pleasure to cover you guys for a day or so.

Reminds of this place I ate at in the Superstition Mountains outside of Phoenix in a town called "Tortilla Flat" - population of 6. Killer burger/bar joint! It's been around since 1904 when it was a stagecoach stop on the Apache Trail. Cool interior too!

Title: Re: Gee Roy, it sure is quiet around here!
Post by: DannyDV8 on July 21, 2013, 09:23:46 AM
Musicians rehearse, before they can re-hearse, they have to hearse.  We'd hear a lot better musicians if they'd at least hearse.  Basketball players practice.  The Lakers would be better if they'd stop rehearsing, and practice.

Only way I could figure out is if the suspension is on hydraulics, but from the pictures I don't see a dealio like that happening.
Title: Re: Gee Roy, it sure is quiet around here!
Post by: DannyDV8 on July 26, 2013, 05:52:00 AM
It looks like just an ordinary A frame suspension up front.
Title: Re: Gee Roy, it sure is quiet around here!
Post by: BH on July 26, 2013, 12:37:07 PM
I bet it is hydraulic with just enough room to slip the wheel off the lugs and slide it out. Hyd up then jack up.
Maybe when you jack up the frame from a certain point the suspension drops. A good fabricator could modify the chassis any # of ways.

I have been on a water kick for about 3 weeks.   Being a mono-kidney kind of guy, it is an especially good idea for me.

Started a routine of drinking a glass of water, first thing out of bed.  Before coffee.  (I started with coffee every day, for decades.)  A glass of water before after every meal, caffeinated drink, alcoholic drink, etc.   A glass before bedtime ( 60-90 minutes before, anyway.)  I've always drank water before, during, and after exercise.

First weird thing that happened was that my saliva was salty.   Which seems backwards, since I expected everything to be more diluted.   That passed after a week.   Maybe washing out some major "salt deposit", clearing out some persistent minor sinus infection, don't know.  Or maybe my sense of taste/smell, just intensified a bit.

Digestive system is working like a fine tuned machine.   No more (um, how do I put this delicately...) dumpless days.

And back to the original point-- plenty of water seems to be a good antidote for alcohol excess.   Certainly helps dilute and help flush it from your system.  Also good for eating too much salty food.

Prevents some overeating, as you just feel too full and too bloated to eat more.

I know the dangers of too much water, but you have to drink a lot more than I am for that to become an issue.  And just like the song... I can pee clearly now.

I haven't had a drink since early April.  Before that I think it was some time in 2012.  Pity on some accounts, I could use one right now!

drinking plenty of water while drinking alcohol helps with the hangover, as hangover is largely caused by dehydration.

I usually down a bottle of water before bed when  been drinking heavy. Not last nite.

I drank all the wine on Ice, so I got a fair amount of water in the process.

We did it in 2 sittings  24 oz and about an hour and half later 24 more and then dinner

I live on green tea these days adding a tablespoon of the Organic Tart cherry concentrate with sweet and low.

I cant do coffee regularly anymore, it gets the gall bladder. I did drink a cup this morning with breakfast at Wafflehouse

When I really used to drink, I'd get drunk again while I was still on one elbow, and then make my way to the fridge for a couple of brews. see if I couldn't get it together to go to the liquor store, come home finish getting hammered, pass out for a while, start getting hammered again when I woke up, go to sleep long enough to get sobered up for the gig, play until about 11:00PM and start drinking again, figuring by then the audience was probably drunk enough that they wouldn't notice if I started getting loose.  I never sobered up long enough to get a hangover.  I had actually learned to pace myself pretty well even though I WAS killing myself.  From what I hear, I was haviing FUN!   :yay!:

After a few, booze ceases to be fun for me.  I think I'm lucky that way.  I have plenty of friends with drinking problems.  One drink pretty much always leads to way too many.

I've been watching the BBC series Shameless.  (Tried the American version-- BBC original is way superior)  About a British household.   Mom ran away.   Dad (Frank) is an always-wasted, pretty much useless drunk.   6 kids live pretty much on their own, gaming the British welfare system.

An episode I watched last night:  Frank needed money and found out about doing drug trials for money.   He signs up for a trial that requires you take the medication with plenty of alcohol.   Great for Frank.   Till Frank realizes that the meds are totally nullifying the effect of the alcohol.   Frank drinks and drinks, and crap, still sober.   And Frank doesn't handle 'sober' well.   Just as Frank has some stunning revelation, he is going to tell his fiance, the meds wear off, and his drunken stupor returns.  Brilliant show.

In the past 9 months I have drank more wine than in the 20 years previous.
I have always monitored my pH and it was staying acidic. I  could not get it to go alkaline.
When I started adding the Tart cherry to my tea my pH normalized in a few  days.

I'm familiar with the feast and famine thing!   We actually had some good momentum, then various excrement hit various fans:  some of our regular places closed or stopped having live bands; drummer totaled his truck, couldn't work without a truck, and getting pretty much destitute; I got in a funk over doing more 'dealing with BS', than playing music.

Dennis is back on his feet and we are all enthusiastic about playing.   But I still cringe at the hustling.   The most recent gig offer I received was for a new place.  Well, old place sold, renamed, repainted, now new place.   The owner said they are just getting started and can't pay a lot, just yet.  I told the guy our minimum was $300.   He said, the way we pay is that we count how many people are here, then multiply that by $5.   They don't charge a cover, but its like playing for the door.  No house PA, so I'd have to bring all my gear, and risk getting having to split 50-100 bucks if its a slow night.   There is no f'ing way.   I don't know what kind of crap bands they are getting to take that deal, but we are not one of them.   A good example of why I hate the hustling.   I don't even want to hear that ridiculous BS. 

Things usually pick up a bit in the fall, anyway.   Around here, people go to the lake on weekends, and a lot of the crowds are thinned out.

Hopefully things quiet down at work soon.  Have 4 huge federal mandates that have to be implemented 5 days before they informed us.  Failure to do so may result in me losing my nursing license. Only good thing is they wont enforce them for thirty days, but then again, we lost five days in them informing us.  Got to love how the gvt works ya over. 

Might have another CD with the band done before next year.  Seeing as we started in in March that wont be a bad time frame!

We took a year to do "Crackin' Up", just worked on it when we felt like it, and took our time when we did work on it, and it came out a lot better than the others.

I agree that this CD is probably going to be our best.  I really have that no pressure sense.  Things don't sound right I don't fret it.  I just work on what I have to and come back to it when I am back in line to jam more.  I know if we push it we are going to regret things.  I think at this point 95% of it is recorded.  We spent 12 weeks doing our last studio CD and I can remember weekends doing 10-12 hours straight on recording solos. 

NO pressure is better for the band too.

On "Still Crackin" I showed up at the studio three times.  We did the rhythm tracks all at once, old school, bass drums and me on guitar, sometimes going ahead and doing the solo live.  There are 18 songs on the album, there should have only been 12.  There's some pretty cool stuff on it, but 6 of the songs make we want to commit hari kari when I hear them.  It was done in a matter of days, and it could have been so much better if we had taken the time.....

Here is one my recent favorites. This guy is in the military and the song is about PTSD. It's really a great song.

https://soundcloud.com/jason-kalman/breathe-in-breathe-out

For you the wars were real
Sleepless nights upon the battlefield
Back home so selfishly
They complain about the price of gas and coffee
Your wife left two tours ago
From the meds you took for pain with all the alcohol

It's hard
It's hard

Unwritten Unspoken
This is the peace that is broken
Breathe in Breathe out
This is the message of sending
Breathe in Breathe out
Within without
Love

You see no victory
You watched your friends all get blown up or just go crazy
Back home they say we care
But they only give a damn
When all their bank accounts go bare

It's hard
It's hard

Unwritten Unspoken
This is the peace that is broken
Breathe in Breathe out
This is the message of sending
Breathe in Breathe out
Within without

Guitar Solo

Life’s too short to throw away
So what if nobody cares about you anyway
Just live your life and live aware
That soon enough we’ll all return to home as heirs
To Love

Unwritten Unspoken
This is the peace that is broken
Breathe in Breathe out
This is the message of sending
Breathe in Breathe out
Within without
Love

That 'worst song of all time' thing has some pretty intense competition.  I had the Macy's parade on while I was baking rolls this morning--  many of the floats were some kinds of lip synching musical act.   90% seemed to feature idiotic auto-tune effected voices.  Had to turn the sound off after awhile.

I went to sleep with the TV on in the bedroom,, and woke up to this playing on one of the local newscasts and said to myself, "Truly bad clams!" and I couldn't resist putting it up.  Meanwhile have you checked out Thursdays November 14th's offering?  Nothing is going to touch that one for the title of "The Worst".

Driving home from Texas. Home for a couple weeks then back out for a month.

Major construction on our house (foundation piers) in April while we're gone. Then a bunch of drywall repairs, painting, then moving, then selling.

We're far from quiet over here.
flipping?

Mine might be clear but it's not free. Taxes and insurance cost me 350 mo.

Been kind of busy.  Picked up another fill-in gig for this Friday.  As soon as I committed to that, an opportunity for my band came up for the same night.  I never back out of a commitment, and stick with first come first serve.   Maybe in the long run, it is better to say 'love to help you, but if you want us, you better book early.'

Had first gig with new band config (new drummer) last Friday.  Went extremely well.   We'll be in rotation there.  But tilting at f'ing windmills trying to get through to some other owners/managers.  I hate selling; but at least I feel really good about my 'product' at the moment.

We've moved rehearsals to Charlie's place (key/harp player), who has an excellent practice studio.  He has a Blues Deluxe I've been using with my pedalboard (with the Ethos).  We are video plus multitrack audio recording practices which adds a whole new level of focus.  And if you do something lame or wrong, its recorded; if you do something great, its recorded.

Rehearsals with Laura Lisbeth have moved to my house, and I've setup mulitrack recording of practice as well.

Anyway, not to hijack the 'sure is quiet' thread.

Speaking of sure is quiet, I'm playing at a funeral monday morning.  I'm backing a lady singer I know for "How Great Thou Art" aand "Amazing Grace".  I don't know the person the service is for, but my services were asked, and I figured "Why not?"

Im headin to the Villages in the morning for a week of fun. It's in central Fl  with over 100K of old MF"s like me. They have all the amenities my age groups like. Got to be 55 to reside. We have friends there we are visiting.
We have to listen to the sales pitch but 7 nights  a 2 BR Cabana , golf cart and 2 bikes is just a grand. Play all the golf you like at  35, 9 hole executive courses, included in the price. Also lots of pools, lakes and biking

On the way back we are going to swing thru Daytona,have a meal and visit with my wifes brother and sisters. It's always a good time. I get to eat at a place called boondocks. It's just a huge plastic tent on the edge of the marina attached to the processing facility. Everything is fresh off the boat. The pic shows giant in my browser but if I right click and choose view image it becomes normal.


(https://www.box.com/shared/static/ussqkzrrco4hoece3spm.jpg)

Then Im headin down the coast to Port Orange to look at some machinery for the shop.

My son and his girl ask to vacation at our place while we are gone. I can't blame them. The only place I know of when I take a vacation that is more relaxing than where I live is the Ocean and walking the beach and fresh seafood.

We were playing at a party about three years ago, and Linda was with us, and we were talking to some lady, and she asked him "Is that your brother?" and he said "Brother, he's my FATHER!".  So we built this semi elaborate hoax and strung her along.  The hard part was explaining why he had an accent and I didn't.  By the time the party was over the thing had gone out of control and almost everyone was convinced we were a father and son team!  It really is true:  "The principle difference between a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives"!   :yay!:

Since all my kids moved out again, my wife is having a home-improvement spaz attack.   My studio/rehearshal space has been disrupted for weeks.  My computer has been shutdown for about 4 days.  I haven't been online so much lately.

I have the intention to flesh out some original material I've been carrying around in my head.  I would like to shift my band into a mix of more original material.  And try to get into some different gigs.  Kind of in a rut.

I cruise thru several times a day while doing my accounting thing. Me and the wife have been doing the same. Remodeled our condo and getting the other place ready to sell and then comes wine time @ 4pm.

We made reservations in the Villages for New Years this morning.

My wife and I are a case of 'opposites attract'.  And for the most part, we complement each other well.  Each filling in the gaps of the other.  When it comes to home improvement, to me it is necessary chore.  I cannot watch HGTV.  I hate having my space disrupted by construction/remodeling.  I hate working all day, then coming home to 4 hours of home improvement/maintenance stuff.  Not my idea of a good time. 

On the other hand, my wife is really 'into it.'  So, for many projects my sole contribution is just tolerating it.  Kathie will do most of the work, and/or hire it done.  She is not afraid of any home project.  Me... I grumble if she starts talking about rearranging the furniture.  So, my primary man-cave, studio, rehearsal space, office, etc has been unavailable for about a month.  Getting kind of grouchy about it.   

She has another project planned that will wreck our bedroom, closet space, bathroom/shower, etc.  I told her 'if you think I'm grouchy now, just wait till you f with the bedroom!'  This too shall pass, this too shall pass, this too shall pass.

I'm still trying to get healed up from the surgery I had in late July.  The doctor left a stitch out for drainage, which was hunky dory at the time.  I did six weeks of intravenous antibiotics, and for the most part the leg healed up, all except where he left the stitch out.  There's still a hole there, and it's not healing at all. There was a lapse in my insurance because I turned 65, and Medi-cal mistakenly dropped me and so I had no medical attention for about 6 weeks.  I finally got that all straightened out.  Personally if I was the doctor, I would have seen me anyway because if I lose this leg, his thangs are going to be MY thangs.  I would have taken a fucking LOOK if I was him! Now my primary has had me on anti-bacterial meds for about three weeks, and no improvement.  Next I'm supposed to go back on antibiotics.  The wound itself still goes crazy when I pour hydrogen peroxide on it.  I've been messing with this for over half a year now.  The bone itself is never going to really heal, but I'd be happier than a pig in shit if at least the wound from the surgery would.  The fact is, I wish they would have amputated the ankle like I asked them to when it got crushed.  I knew this was going to come back to bite me on the ass!  Anyway, back on topic, I'm still here alla, alla time.

My wife and I are opposites also. We have over 20K sq ft under roof and we agree to disagree. We have some very heated discussions on how to proceed. It works well for us and we usually come to the best decision.

I was getting ready to dump most of mine and kick back but my son seems to have stepped up and I have had it made for almost 3 years. I hope it last !

Sorry bout your leg, Danny. That's been a long struggle.

Some of the time this site won't load. Sometimes it will. And a lot of times I look but don't talk. I'm more of a lurker....

My wife's mom had surgery on her leg the end of Oct, a carcinoma had formed at the site of a bruise she got when she fell. So we were in Illinois at the beginning of November. I traveled back to CO to do some necessary editing, then came back to Illinois in time to fly to St Croix for some beach time. I was pretty relaxed but Denise was worried about her mom most of the time.

We got back in last nite and I thought I'd stop in to say hey. "Hey"

We put an offer in on a condo, the original closing date was Dec 1st, put has got pushed back until we get some numbers form the HOA. Second base in IL.

I have been enjoying the gold Tele. It's so flashy it's embarrassing. Got to be dead to yourself to take her out. But it sounds schweet!

The really funny thing is we get a 5.6 earthquake about as often as we get a newspaper, and nobody bats an eye, life goes on without missing a beat.  We get an inch of rain and it headlines the news for a week, there are power outages, the roads fall apart, there are mudslides, and in general it's chaos!  Go figure.  It's supposed to start up again any time now.  Actually it was already supposed to have been here.  "Man the lifeboats!"

They are being well taken care of.  They are being told when to be back to the hotel and where to go and not go. 

Spending the days in the Gibson factory is good because everything there is overpriced.

I'm just kickin' it.  I'm still having problems with my leg and the bone infection.  The hole from the surgery I had in July still hasn't closed up, and I've done two rounds of anti-bacterials, and two rounds of the nastiest anti-biotics  you could ever imagine, and the infection is still in the wound.  They're saying the infection in the bone itself will never leave.  I'm going to an infectious disease specialist next week.  Meanwhile this Sunday will make one year since Linda passed away, and so it's a time for reflection.  Outside of that, there ain't nothin' shakin' but the bacon.

Yeah, it was January 4th.  Any hopes I had for the new year got crushed pretty quickly.  The rest of the year was tough as far as crawling out of debt.  All the bills were behind.  I lost my Camaro, and then as soon as I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel, the infection in my leg went over the top.  I kept having all kinds of symptoms, shortness of breath, all kinds of wicked body rushes, and the doctor couldn't find anything.  Finally the leg presented and it was obvious what had been going on.  Strangely enough it doesn't seem like it's been a year to me either.  I guess I should pick up a new calender later today.

At 7 pm we are heading up the street to dance and party like it is our last.  We have been doing this for 2 previous days and it's becoming like a job!

NICE!  Great way to start the new year!  Beth and I just hung out here, knocked back a few beers, and a bottle of champagne had to die at midnight.  We caught an act called "The Leningrad Cowboys"
playing in Russia back in 1993.  They made me laugh more times in one hour than I did in all of 2014.  All of Southern California was blanketed in snow for New Years Eve, that's something that never, never happens.  Here at my house is one of the only places it didn't snow, but it even snowed in downtown Palm Springs, and San Diego of all places!  We watched the Rose Parade, and had a quiet time!  It was nice!

Wife doing a selfie for the kids before we left the room

The following morning , I sent the wife up the hall to get us a cup of coffee. Im still laying in the bed butt azz naked. there was a knock at the door and I knew it was too soon for the wife to be back ,I looked thru the peep hole and it was the Hispanic maid with towels, I sais Im not dressed just leave them at the door.
apparently her english was bad because about 15 seconds later she let herself into my room as i was standing there full birthday suit on. She was shocked and ran out and didn't even leave the towels ahahaha. My wife went to get the towels when she returned and she said the lady was throwing herself on the piles of dirty towels and apologizing., she was afraid we were going to complain to the management.  We had a good laugh about it.

I got a hilarious tale for you when I get time to type it up.

Through the holidays, we had two big parties, and two big family get-togethers.  My wife is the administrator for a radiation treatment center.  We had their work party at our house.  A doctor collapsed as he made his way around the food table.  Funny how all the other doctors in the room were not rushing to help.  Maybe checking their malpractice/liability insurance, first.  911 was called, paramedics and a couple of cops.  He turned out OK.  Had been sick; probably shouldn't have been drinking.

For our NYE party my wife invites all kinds if different people.  Neighbors, friends, business associates.  I invite my scraggly musician friends, but have to warn them to keep the illegal stuff discrete.   Usually provide a secret place for them to partake, and help them make unobvious exit and re-entrance.  Some far right types and some far left types.  Sometimes there are fireworks, but this one was fairly tame.  I only 'tasted' a few drinks.  I probably had the equivalent of 1 drink by midnight.

I've been staying pretty quiet.  I have a bunch of medical appointments over the next couple of weeks, and I'm hoping to resolve some issues that are going on. )Like that's gonna happen!)  I don't like getting in the car for the entire month of December.  Now that the holiday season is over, the streets seem deserted.  Gotta love all that!

I've only let half a dozen people even know where I live.  I can't even remember the last time I had to count the silverware.

I love wierd , strange and different folks, I just don't like them in my home. We just got in from the Villages, the last couple we partied with was off the charts but at the end of the night we went separate ways.

I got a hilarious tale for you when I get time to type it up.

Through the holidays, we had two big parties, and two big family get-togethers.  My wife is the administrator for a radiation treatment center.  We had their work party at our house.  A doctor collapsed as he made his way around the food table.  Funny how all the other doctors in the room were not rushing to help.  Maybe checking their malpractice/liability insurance, first.  911 was called, paramedics and a couple of cops.  He turned out OK.  Had been sick; probably shouldn't have been drinking.

For our NYE party my wife invites all kinds if different people.  Neighbors, friends, business associates.  I invite my scraggly musician friends, but have to warn them to keep the illegal stuff discrete.   Usually provide a secret place for them to partake, and help them make unobvious exit and re-entrance.  Some far right types and some far left types.  Sometimes there are fireworks, but this one was fairly tame.  I only 'tasted' a few drinks.  I probably had the equivalent of 1 drink by midnight.

If I were in your shoes , I would have to had many many drinks just to tolerate all those folks at my house.  It's now time for my daily Mexican Ritual. 3 pinot's and a nice spicey dinner, no rice, no beans that shat will make you fat fast !

They were at $2.24 here but Cali enacted a $0.10 gas tax on Jan 1 (as if there isn't already enough tax on gas) so it's about $2.34.  They're trying to say it's to clean up the air, but in reality it's so Jerry Brown can have his bullet train me thinks.

Spent Christmas and New Years in Chicago. Nothing happened of any consequence at all. Other than my ex-wife died of cancer the Wednesday before Christmas.

Rented a little coach house in Des Plaines to serve as a location from which to shop for that elusive condo. Not much happening here other than cold, and I'm headed back to CO end of the week.

Next trip for us is Belize in April. Then Indiana, then the Carolinas.

Getting to be nothing but echos round here.  Hope everyone is doing ok.

Have a few projects I can do whilst I am waiting for results on the wrist.

Going to be a pedal mod - creation as long as I can hold a soldering iron without dropping it.
Also a mod to the fender champ 600, speaker replacement, and a simple switch of a cap to change the specs.  Have to decide which one I want to do.
Retube an amp and then that should get me to next week.

I've been doing some stuff on my pedal board as well.  First off, I had a Seymour Duncan Deja-Vu that made sounds I really love, save one, it hissed even when the ting waqs off, and I mean loudly, so I found a place in my junk drawer for it.  I got a killer deal on an MXR Uni-Vibe, and I have a hot deal cooking for a TC Electronics flashback.  The only thing I was using the Deja-Vu for was it made a killer Leslie sound that I really liked.  Between the Flashback and the Uni-vibe I should be able to recreate that, and a wide range of other sounds as well without all the other garbage.  My advice to Mr. Duncan?  Stick to pick-ups, and maybe that one pick-up booster pedal you make....If it makes noise when it's "OFF" it really isn't "True bypass", is it?.

True bypass no, true hisspass.  I had a pedal that did that also was the weirdest thing.  Something on the board croaked.  Looking at making a significant reworking of the rock setup.

I picked up a power conditioner with a bunch of filtration, from MF, hoping that was the problem.  It wasn't.  I'm still glad I got the power conditioner as they were practically giving it away.   I still haven't settled on the echo/delay as of yet.  So far the TC Flashback is the front runner.

Since my wife's surgery, she has had a hard time carrying things.  As a guitar player, she has been struggling with the hard shell cases for her guitars.  She wanted me to buy her a gig bag for one of her custom shop taylor guitars.  I told her flat out, there is no way you are going to carry a guitar like that around in a gig bag, it needs some protection!   She noticed my Seagull TRIC case (which is hard foam but light) is easy to carry and she instigated a trade.   FWIW I ended up losing my Seagull and ended up with her Gibson, which in a few months will be going with my daughter.  So Going to have to figure out a new acoustic guitar.

A woman that plays in my Celtic band has a Seagull, with a foam case.  She loves it for the lightness.  Hers is starting to break at the hinges and latches.  She won't consider getting a hardshell case.  She wants to repair the foam case.

I'm strictly a hardshell guy.  I can't find one for my Epiphone Les Paul uke, so I put it in a gig bag and then put that whole shooting match inside another foam padded gig bag.  It works for the uke, but I'm still mighty careful!

I never got onboard with the gig bag thing either.   I wore out the original HSC for my LP.  Got a new Gibson HSC for Christmas several years ago.  Costs as much as an inexpensive guitar!  $200+.  Also have bought 2nd HSC cases for my ES330 and J45.

When I got the metal flake Fenders I had to settle for a brand X case for the Tele.  It was a Road Ready or some such, OK, but not a real good fit. I saved my nickles and dimes and ordered a Fender case, a n old school black one with the Fender logo down in the corner.  It arrived with a sticker that said "Made in Vietnam" and a lid that was so warped that it felt like it was made out of wet bamboo.  I took it back to GC two weeks ago and they ordered a new one right away.  I had to go there to pick up a pedal a few days ago, and figured I could pick up the case as well.  It hadn't even shipped yet.  Fender is planning on shipping it in two more days!  ("Gotta get around to shipping that.........one of these days!")  The manager was embarrassed enough that he tore the back room up trying to see if he might have another one in stock, ande the one he found was warped on BOTH sides!  I would have never ordered the damned thing in the first place if I had known it was made in Vietnam!  That war never ended for me, those people can blow me!  What the Hell is wrong with ender?  They sell you crap now for $20.00 less? I already told the guys at GC that I'd be embarrassed enough at Fender for having to take a case back in the first place that I wouldn't be dogging me around like this on the shipping, and that if this one isn't picture perfect I'm going to want my money and my old case back.  It shouldn't be this hard!

I prefer a quality hard shell case. Sometimes I think a quality padded case offers more protection.
My Korean Breedlove came with a heavily padded case which I think is more than enough. My Gibson historic series les Paul came with a gig bag that offers very little protection.

My favorite cases are of the blow molded plastic type. I bought a fender precision bass last year on eBay brand new condition,  600 bucks, it had to be hot. It came with a real nice blow molded case which is one of the best cases I have ever seen as far as true protection

Also my Cole Clark came with a blow molded case like I have seen protecting Martin guitars. You could drop that sumbeech out an airplane to the asphalt and the guitar would be safe.

Denise and I travel with gig bags all the time - She got one by Warwick, that came with her MusicMan bass. So we got another one for her new P-Bass. Got it from a mom and pop in Lisle IL that does eBay. She made a mistake on her order and got the guitar size instead. I was shy a case for the gold tele, so instead of sending it back. It's actually a really substantial case, thick foam, great storage. They're called Rockbags.

We actually took our electrics, my LP and her Jazz bass, across to England in gig bags in 2003. But we persuaded the airlines to let us take them as carryons. Risky. Doubt we could do that now, though.

My bone infection is back.  It's staphylococcal orios   again.  I have a three stage nuclear bone scan Wednesday morning, and then an appointment with an infectious disease specialist Thursday, who seemed overly confident a month ago when he said to let it go for a month and see what it does, and now admits that he doesn't really know how to treat me.  When they did the surgery last August they left out a stitch so the wound would drain....That hole never healed.  Now it seems the bone is infected again.  I'm feeling pretty beat down in general, the leg is becoming painful, and having the infection in my body for so long is having an adverse affect on my overall health.  It's fair to say I've been taking a beating for a long time.

I asked the infection specialist if it wouldn't be better to amputate rather than kill my liver with a lifetime of antibiotics, and he said that amputation drastically cuts down on your longevity because of the circulation problems it causes when they cut all the arteries and veins.  Speaking of antibiotics, they've been tearing me up as well.  I've lost count of how many series I've been through since last spring.  I made it ten years after I had the gangrene without any problem per se, but now it seems like it's all coming home to roost... I guess Bob Dylan was right, "Sometimes even the milkman has to cry."

You reminded me of my favorite great aunt. She lost one leg to diabetes.Later on gangreen set up in her other leg when she was almost 80. they wanted to amputate and she said i am not sitting up here like a GD frog and she died from it.

She was a natural comedian. I remember her telling my mom how much she liked my moms new furniture. My mom sais Joe go get you some you can afford it.

When they found the gangrene I had been going to the V.A. hospital for months telling them that I felt like I was dying.  Some asshole doctor that sounded like Andy of Mayberry kept telling me "You fine, just FINE!"  I went to a civilian hospital out in Menifee and they told me that except for the gangrene thing I had going on I was fine and that if it had gone untreated for another 24 hours I would have died.  They had to cut out so much of my leg you could have hid a nerf football in the hole.  It took two years for the wound to heal, and that was after using a wound vac for two weeks.  I was in the hospital for 28 days, and then on I.V. antibiotics for 6 weeks after I got out.  Linda was on her hands and knees scrubbing out the wound 3 times a day, and up a 4:00 in the morning getting the I.V. bags out of the refrigerator and warming them up for me.  That's really when I fell in love with her.  I realized no one was ever going to love me as much as she did!  Now it falls to Beth to take care of me.  She' quite a woman!  You o what they say, lucky in love; prone to bone infection......

Man, sorry to hear that its back.  A friend of mine nearly died in the hospital from a staph infection.  A wound on his knee got infected.   Took the docs awhile to connect the dots and get the right treatment going.  Same guy now has bladder cancer.  They have been trying to treat, but decided it was time to go ahead and remove his bladder.  Took his prostate while they were at it.  Did that last Wednesday.  Getting old ain't for pussies!

This is one of my rentals that my son lives in. We had 6-8 inches on the ground yesterday. The roads were clear by afternoon and i was at Logan Roadhouse eatin steak and drinkin wine. It's Mexican today just have to run by the shop and drop off payroll and get the mail.

My son stays here for free as long as the company stays in the black and he stays in school. This July will be 3 years for me only doing the bookkeeping.   Im sure glad he lost his job as a Chef a few years back and financially strapped. It set me free !

Open mic frozen out for the start again.  wind chill at a balmy -1 when we started.  Wind died down and it made it up to 8 by the time I got home.  On a lighter note, there were so many people packed in I couldn't tear down till 5 minutes before closing time.  10 minutes after close the place was still packed and people buying stuff.

We are on the Spring weather rollercoaster.  A bit of 40s/50s last week, then back to single digits and snow.  High 30 today.  50 Friday.  60 by Sunday!!!  Looking like 50s-60s next week.  I am ready!!!   Morel season around the corner.

I wouldn't go out in that weather to hear the Beatles play!  On a side not, I've been doing the pro- biotics for about 5 days now, and II don't feel the negative effects of the antibiotics at all.  The leg wound seems to be drying out and scabbing up, so perhaps things are finally turning around!  I still have about two weeks to go on this current regimen.  It's going to be hard to tell what's going on inside the bone in as much as the last bone scan didn't reveal much because of all the scarring on the bone itself.

I went to the infectious disease specialist today.  He was very pleased with the progress my leg is making, as am I!  He's going to keep me on this latest round of antibiotics for another three months, and after that we'll see.  The probiotics made a world of difference, and because of them I started tolerating the antibiotics within minutes of starting them.  I've had one Hell of a flu the last five days, and so he prescribed Tamiflu for that, and I have a thrush infection in my throat, so he gave me medicine for that, and all in all I feel a lot better today!

Let's hope for lots more of that!

Not in the same league as your ailments, but I've screwed up one of my knees.  Suspect a slight/mild meniscus tear.  My chiro's been doing ultrasound on it, and wrapped it.  Trying to keep it from getting worse, and giving it every chance to heal on its own. 

What really sucks is that morel mushroom season is starting, and I'd really like to be out roaming the hills.  But I think that would make this knee deal go from not-too-bad to a-whole-lot-worse.

I was shoveling it down and reached around him and did the hiemlic and went back to eating like nothing happened and it was about 15 seconds or so before the adrenaline kicked in and i realized what had just happened.

This afternoon we were at the roadhouse ,suddenly I was choking on a piece of steak. I pounded my chest and pointed to my mouth, my son got up did the heimlic on me sat back down and said we're even.

A good payback!  One my kids choked on a mozerella stick at the ice rink snack bar.  Just the right size to plug a small throat (if not chewed.)  Back thrust got it out.  When my oldest was about 2, he choked on a quarter.  My wife picked him up by the feet and shook it loose.  Scary stuff.

Got my first Raildog gig in awhile, coming up Saturday at Stone Pillar Winery.  Crazy struggle to get everyone together for run through rehearsal.  Our drummer was in FL, subbing with Albert Castiglia and just got back in town.  Then he had a family funeral to go to.  My keyboard player has a farm near Lake of the Ozarks, and a business building, with an apartment in South KC.   Most weeks, he is in St. Louis part of the week, and at the farm, and in KC.  He ended up needing to be in St. Louis today/tonight.

Looks like well do a quick little rehearse Saturday before the gig.  Mostly playing stuff we've done together, anyway.  I am thinking, just play off the freshness of it.  In a way, its more fun than just plowing through the same tunes you've been gigging repeatedly, and recently.

The 2nd cup F's me .  My gall bladder gives me the hatchet in the back effect.  After my 1st cup ,I do a cup of fresh squeezed lemon mixed with green tea.

At the Maxwell house it will be me timing 3 glasses of grape juice and stepping up.

Our pet shelter benefit (half pay) went real well.  It was at a winery.  They have a pavilion that has grown from being a big concrete slab to having a roof, sides, doors, and a heating cooling system.  Pretty much a building with some doors to open during the summer.

The charity raised $2500+.   $10 donation to get in; $25 w/dinner, so a pretty well-heeled bunch.   They focus on getting dogs and cats off death row at kill shelters.

We played real low volume, and the owner was still giving us the 'turn it down' deal.  (I think its a nervous habit with some people!)  My drummer was playing super light.  And I can't even imagine a full band playing any lower than we were.  And everyone I asked, said the volume was fine, and lower than usual; that they could talk without shouting at the back of the room.  So, just a minor pain in the ass.

Haven't gigged this band in awhile.  We did do a quick run through of a few things, before going over to set up.  That headed off a few brain fart moments.

Don't have any Raildog gigs lined up again till June 6.  In May, a handful of Laura Lisbeth gigs; and a couple organ trio things.  Almost feel inspired to get out and hustle some more gigs.

In unrelated news....   Going in for my yearly CT scan today.  This will be my 4th.  My five year mark (from kidney cancer surgery) is August of this year!

I think I'm going on the abstinence, near-abstinence wagon for awhile.  I've never drank as much as most of the drinkers I know.  Last Wednesday, we went to some friends house for dinner.  I had 2 glasses of wine and a small amount of cognac (it was a doctors house, and it was some top notch cognac.)   The next day, I felt like crap.  My blood pressure spiked throughout the day.   Neckache/Headache.  I was thinking "no way I drank enough to have a hangover."  But I think I'm seeing a pattern.  I think it is common for me to feel bad even after a two drink evening.  And drinking almost never has an enjoyable effect on me.

Logging my blood pressure to see if abstinence from alcohol has a postive effect on my BP.  I've been able to keep it in the borderline area and below, through diet and exercise (no meds).  But, I jacked up my knee about a month ago.  So, I'm not able to run right now.  May have to shift to biking or something else no/low impact.  Aerobic exercise 2 or 3 times a week drop my BP by 10 -  20 points.  Better than any med I tried.  But if I stop exercising, BP starts creeping up.

I had my annual nephrologist visit last week, and he we nagging me about the 150/90 reading in his office.  Of course I was stressed, thinking "crap, they are going to checkp my BP, it will be high, and I will get the meds lecture."  Self fullfilling prophecy.  I am doing a BP log at home for 2 weeks for us to review next time.

If abstaining totally, drops my BP in a significant way, I'd give it up in a heartbeat.  Not really attached to it.  Never drank much.  But days without 1 or 2 seem to be getting pretty rare.  Never thought of my small amount of drinking as a habit.  But now that I've stopped, I am noticing there are situations and triggers, where I'd have a drink, just to fit in with the rest of the drinkers.  Sunday night, settling in for some TV, it has been pretty common for us to have a glass of wine, or something.  I noticed the impulse, which suprised me a little.

Always been a lightweight with alcohol, and could never keep up heavy drinkers.  Maybe my Cherokee genes.  Or, I guess people can develop alcohol sensitivity or allergies.

Experiment continues.

Yeah, its not cheap!  I've never drank large volumes of stuff, so always gone for quality over quantity.   But still adds up:  $6-$8 six packs; $30-$50 bottles of liquor.  We held a couple of parties for my wife's workplace, at our house.  One of the perks was that I got to stock the bar for the high-roller doctor crowd, and keep the leftovers.   And the workplace reimbursed for what I bought.

But, if there are no good noticeable health effects of abstaining, I'll probably drift back to some light use.   The only people I know who drink less than I do, are total non-drinkers.  While I don't think I have an addiction issue, its is kind of funny to notice the impulses, when I get in situations where I would have had a drink.

Those bottles of Yellowtail are a shade over 10 bucks when I buy 6 @ a time. 1.5 liter bottles. We never start before 3, we go to dinner at 3-4 and I have a few with dinner and the wife drives me home and she has a few and I usually have 1 more.

I don't get hangovers these days, but I only drink wine. My blood pressure gets a little high, but my pills put it in check.

You reach a point that life is not about stuff. Since we have been emptying out the river place for the second time since 06 we have furnished several folks houses. We don't do yard sales or Craig's list. we give it to those around us who might have a need for it.

I have come to the conclusion , the happiest people are those spend on experiences and not on stuff. Eat,drink and be merry,if you can afford it.

I got over 20K sq ft of stuff and it is a constant responsibility and it is not always fun,although it is a necessary evil to keep me sleeping indoors and eating regular.

It is a collar and chain!

I just had a PICC line put in.  I'm going bac on I.V. antibiotics as the leg never has healed, and I still have an MSSA infection going on in the bone.  I'll be doing injections 3 times a day for 4 weeks, at the end of which time, if the infection still persists I have to have some more of the shin bone surgically removed.  Outside of that, everything is just hunky dory as a MoFo.

What a quiet weekend everyone.  Hope everyone is doing ok?

Didn't do much other than take in a ball game and mow several lawns.

I had a luxurious, restful weekend at the lake.  Well, I was at the lake. 

My sailboat has a large storage locker (in boatspeak: a lazarette).  The aft cockpit seat is hinged to form the lid of this area.  Sometimes damp gear is stowed there.  The paint is old in there, and mildew has been growing on the walls, and on some of the old lifejackets and gear.  Been planning on sorting out everything in there, and painting the surfaces in there with bilge paint   Well, my number came up Saturday.

The space is sort of big enough to get inside of.  About 3-1/2' high in the highest spot.  Nooks and crannies, batteries, charger, cooking fuel tank, wiring harness/race, fuel line, exhaust line, etc to contort around.  Cleaned with rags and mildew cleaner for about 4 hours.  Put my wife in charge of going through all the stuff that came out of the locker.  Climbed in to start painting, trying my best to avoid painting myself into a corner; and leaving the last part to be painted while standing outside the locker.  The lid was open, so there was ventilation, but most of the time I was in there, I was contorting back into the sides, and painting the ceiling area (which was mildew ground zero).

Fumes were pretty bad, so I had to take a few fresh air breaks.  Got a fair amount of paint on me.  Couldn't really climb out of there without hitting someplace I'd painted. This is some tough paint.  No 'water clean up'.  So, I had to wash myself down in mineral sprits (including hair), then go shower the mineral spirits off.

Mid 60 degree temps and overcast, so it was really a perfect day for taking this on.  But, my body is feeling like someone has been hitting me with hammers.  The lazerette came out really well.   It will stem a bunch of complaining about how gross the lazerette and contents are.  I guess that is the real "improvement" in home improvement.

So, my body is having a 'rebuilding season' for a few days.

Seems like we just did this 11 months ago right after a surgery......It didn't work.  It IS a different antibiotic this time, and I just found out today that the infection is MSSA instead of MRSA, which was what I was told it was about a month ago.  Of course the pencil pushers at my insurance had to take 2 weeks to make big medical decisions that they're in no way qualified to make, after two doctors who are qualified told them I needed the treatment, so the damned infection could have only dug in deeper.  I'm optimistic like a son of a bitch, I tell ya!..................No..............REALLY!

My infectious disease specialists office called to remind me that I have an appointment tomorrow.  Originally the plan was to see how I was doing after a month of I.V. antibiotics, but thanks to the pencil pushers at my insurance, and the lazy little girls at my primary physician's office, they didn't even get the PICC line in until yesterday!  The specialist's assistant was furious.  "I'd try to call your primary's office to get them to refer this to your insurance and they'd tell me 'We don't do that!', and that I had to which I can't because we were referred by your primary, therefore they have to refer any treatment plans to your insurance carrier.  You were supposed to have this a month ago!"  Sez I, I sez, "I know...."  So, at 3:15 tomorrow afternoon he can look at my leg and say, "It's a leg alright!" and that's about it.  My primary physician is a really good doctor, but without exception every one of the girls that work in his office are so lazy if you shot 'em they'd be too lazy to fall down!  Without exception, every one of them can probably suck start a Harley Davidson!  Doc needs to find a more viable way to pay for his BJs.....

I just finished up my last infusion of antibiotics, now the orthopedic surgeon wants to give me my first consultation in September!  That defeats the purpose of having done this last six week regimen of I.V. medications.  I might as well not have the surgery at all as to let the infection come back and then do it.  I hate doctors with a passion as it is.  All this does is prove further that they really don't give a fuck.  It's all about them, seldom if ever about you.  Meanwhile the girls that work in the doctor's office are so lazy that if you shot them, they'd be to lazy to fall down.  I could go on a rant here, but it would only get me more pissed off than I already am!

Seems like a crazy long time to wait! 

When my surgeon confirmed that I had cancer and needed surgery.  And sooner, rather than later would be a good idea.  I said 'tommorow works for me'.  Then... the doc says well I'm on vacation the next two weeks, and backed up after that.  One month out, was the best he could do.

I was fine with the idea that I 'might' have cancer, and 'might' need surgery.  But once it was confirmed, I wanted it out of me YESTERDAY.  Waiting a month for the doc's schedule sucked.  But in the big picture, I'd probably been growing that tumor for 5-7 years; and it was caught early.  So a month wasn't really a big deal.  But if you wait around till it metastasizes, you graduate to chemo, radiation, and possibly an abbreviated life.

In your case, seems crazy to give that infection a chance at rebounding.   Good luck!

I got the infection from a surgery in the first place.  They did a half assed job of treating the infection, and then I had to go to another hospital to find out that I had gangrene.  We just got the numbers down on the infection with the I.V. antibiotics.  If I wait until the infection comes back again to get the surgery, it's going to do more harm than good.  The wound hasn't healed from the surgery I had a year ago because they did it while the infection was raging, and they didn't do a radical enough removal of affected bone.  I still look like I got shot in the leg by a .22.  I'm sure the orthopedic surgeon will have a payment due on his fancy European sports car in September, and that's what matters most to me.......no,.....REALLY!  I've been taking antibiotics for almost 15 months solid.  If I keep it up, the medicine is going to kill me. To top it all off, the surgeon has a 2 star rating, but because my insurance has me in something called "The Hemet Medical Group", it's the good old boy system, and they can't even refer me to anyone else.  You can't begin to imagine how pissed off I am, or what I'm capable of.  I'm a Viet Nam crazy, you know.....  I've had enough of this Dr. Hackenbush shit!

The "good ol' boy" who was supposed to do my surgery had me in for a consultation and was decent enough to refer me to the famed Loma Linda University Hospital.  The insurance companies slow danced it, but I go in for my consultation there tomorrow afternoon.  At first when I was balking on having the surgery at all, the infectious disease specialist said, "We'll just go in there and scrape out anything mushy, not a big deal at all!"  Now it's changed to where they want to go in and remove all of the scar tissue (from 28 breaks) and replace it with cadaver bone.  A VERY BIG DEAL!  I don't even know if I'll be able to walk.  I don't want to go back to the wheel chair!  After I finished up the 6 weeks of I.V. antibiotics, my urine and my bowel movements became so stinky that I couldn['t stand to be in the same room with myself.  I had my primary doctor send me for labs.  Now he wants to see me on Monday to go over the results, which means they found something, or they wouldn't have called at all.  No one will tell me anything over the phone, and that's never happened before, so I'm guessing more bad news.  You can't take high powered antibiotics for 17 months and not become "homogenized" .......I so HAPPY!   :yay!:

I was being sarcastic.....It's all I have left.  Anyway, the appointment at Loma Linda was today.  I called my primary physician's office today and spoke with his nurse.  I told her I was seeing the surgeon today, and that he should be made aware of whatever was going on with the results of the lab test.  She tells me if he needs them he can fax over a request.  I told her, "He's not an office girl, and I'm seeing him in a couple of hours, I need the results of those tests.  She says she doesn't have the paper there, and I asked, "can't you go get it?"  "M'kay".  She puts me on hold for 15 minutes, and crawls her way back to the phone to tell me the results of the test were normal.  "I couldn't help but ask, "Then why the fuck didn't you tell me that Monday instead of worrying the fuck out of me for four days, and telling me the doctor had to go through the test results with me?"  "I just said he wanted you in for a follow up."  "No, you were to lazy to crawl across the room to the filing cabinet and pull my folder!"  Anyway I went to the orthopedic surgeon, xrays in hand and he told me that he wouldn't advise a surgery just now, and that grafting bone into the scar tissue would cut off any blood supply the bone is getting, and could set me up for more infection.  He's going to follow up on me in a month, but for at least now, NO SURGERY!!!!!  He said the most he probably would do if we go in there is scrape out any soft mushy tissue he found in the bone, and it wouldn't be anything more than what I' already went through a year ago, which was for the most part bearable. (Of course, it didn't work!)  The big thing now is to see if the infection comes back.  Even if it doesn't come back now, it could wait a few years and then come back.  That's what happened this time.  I just want the doctors to stop cutting on me, and this guy isn't too crazy about going in unless it's absolutely necessary.  We're on the same page with that, if I can just get away with it..................We'll see.

On a different note, I have seen people with serious osteomyelitis do well and have to be treated 7 or 8 years.  My dad was one of them.  He had a heart surgery and ended up with a sternal bone infection.  He was treated for 8 years before it went away.  He lived 13 years after and died of something unrelated to the infection.  Hang in there.

My infectious disease specialist told me about a guy who got in a car wreck in 1941, and had a bone infection in his leg.  Back then they treated it with penicillin.  The bacteria lay dormant for decades until in 2005, when it flared up.  Bone infections over the years had developed resistance to antibiotics until penicillin no longer worked.  They used penicillin on this guy and it worked, proving it was the same infection from 1941!

We are looking at relocating and house downsizing at the same time.  Within about the next two years.  I will need to get down to maybe two electric, two acoustic, a small PA rig, and this thermos, and this paddle game.  That's all I need.  I don't need anything else.  Oh, and this ashtray.  That's all I need.  I don't need anything else.

If we can swing a big enough boat, and my wife gets comfortable with the idea of 'not owning a house on the dirt, to come home to', we may live full time on a boat for a few years.  That will get me down to an acoustic and maybe an electric and some kind of small/light rig like a Quilter tone block and a small cab; or a Lunchbox amp.

I "only" have 4 electrics, 5 if I count the Roland guitar that came with my early guitar synth.  3 acoustics.  1 bass.  In addition to the Egnater that I use all the time, two amps that need repair.  A handful of pedals that have come off my pedalboard.  Already sold off my excess PA gear.  So, not really that much to part with.

Got rid of the reverse V yesterday.  That was a load off my mind.  Got an even trade for a HSS american deluxe strat.  The trade was really more in my favor but the guy wanted the reverse V as an investment.  Sounds like he knew what he was talking about.  Was going to replace the original volume knob that I replaced because I didn't like it.  Someone who knew a ton about the history of the reverse V.  As far as cash offers I couldn't get much more than $400 as an offer and I probably can turn around the strat fast at 700 or better.  The strat looks like it has sat in a case most of its life, original stickers and stuff.

Working on a few fuzz pedals to see what their optimal voltage is.

Got a variable DC power supply, hook up a fuzz and an oscilloscope and fine watch what the variation in voltage does to the actual waveform is pretty cool.

this one is the coolest.

That's just the waveform for the low E. 
This is a stock mini big muff fuzz at 5.2v.  Changes the character to a singing fuzz (ala David Gilmour comfortably numb).

My voodoo labs pedal power PS has 1 or maybe 2 variable ports to simulate a low battery.  Played with it a bit when I first got the PP.  I don't have any fuzz pedals, which are the ones most likely to benefit.

Tell you that is a great investment.  I can now totally calculate the amount of power I want to provide to the pedal based on how it sounds and the clipping waveform.  I can see with the spectrum analyzer when the unwanted harmonics go below audible level.  At 5.2 Volts, the Big Muff turns into a slightly clipped boost pedal with creamy and rich sustain.  Turns the pedal into a different monster.  On a different note, the octavix really doesn't like low voltage at all, just kind of gates off.   The green silicon fuzz doesn't do a dang thing.

Also very useful to determine overdrive pedals that do well with increased voltage.  The paisley drive sounds beautiful at 17.3v.  Cant isolate that on a power supply but can get 18.   If I could dial that it at 17.3 it would be a killer pedal.  For some reason over 17.3 get a little more compression. I pushed it to 20.0v and it just got loud and squashy after 18.   

Interesting to also see what kind of draw pedals have.  Most of the fuzz pedals are 5ma or less draw.

That's pretty cool. Voltage make a huge difference, especially in a fuzz. I put a bias knob on the ones that I've built so you can sweep it a find your own sweet spot. The bias only tweaks the voltage on the second transistor though. It's kinda fun to starve it and get that spitty/bit crusher/Atari thing going on.....

Most of your overdrive pedals don't draw very much current. Choruses and delays need MORE!

Last year, the Chiefs were pretty good.  This year, not so much.  Watched parts of a couple games, so far.  I think I'm done for this season.  The Green Bay game-- Chiefs were totally outclassed.  No offensive line.  QB playing run for your life every play.  Packers walked over our defense.  Couldn't even watch the whole game.  I'll be spending my Sunday afternoons on something else!   Go Royals!

Took a couple days off to burn some leave, and get my boat out of the water.  It hasn't been out of the water in 7 years.  Time for new bottom paint this spring, and a nice winter dry out and rest on the hard.

Had to cross the lake to meet the guys at the boat ramp at 11am.  39 degrees, with 20 knot winds blowing up the lake.  3 ft chop.  At least the boat ramp was in a fairly protected cove.  The trip across was brisk!  Watched a family of eagles (mom, dad, and 1 offspring) fly around and fish.

Kind of off the grid, when I'm down there.  I had a dinner at a cafe across the road from this spot, last night.  Then headed back to the boat, for a 30 degree night in my mummy bag, with a little help from the electric heater.

Just busy.  Tracking some guitar parts, engineering and mixing on some tunes.  So spending a lot of time in my home studio. 

Doing a gig this Saturday night (after a hiatus) with the trio.  So, I am cramming some of the old Johnnie Taylor R&B stuff our drummer likes to do/sing.  We also have a guy who is going to 'special guest' with our trio.  So it will definitely be a "think on your feet" night.  Might play some bass, too.

My oldest son is in France.  His used car biz is buying some Land Rovers in Britain, and importing them for resale.  Supposedly they are very rare here, and people will pay rip-off prices to get one.  We'll see about that.  So, while he is there, someone has offered to take them skiing in the French Alps.  What a deal.

I am taking my daughter to the airport tonight.  She is headed to Columbia.   Her boyfriend has been in South America for about 6 months.  They are both returning 12/12.  So, two kids out of the country on different deals.  Kind of weird.

Going to see the band Heart tomorrow for a private/charity thing.  The local Susan B. Kommen breast cancer org is having a volunteer appreciation event.  My wife had some position with the Kommen group; so she received several tickets to this deal.

I called to see my favorite Doc, he had passed. it's been a couple of years since last visit. He was my doctor since 1982. He was also my friend and loved to visit my river house. He knew the history of the river in my area,especially when it involved the civil war, he was also involved with the society for the preservation of the Tennessee River Gorge AKA Tennessee River Gorge Trust .Their headquarters AKA The Pot House, is a mile down the street.  Who ever wrote his obit did a great job. He loved people and his job. One of the best human beings I ever had the privilege to know.



Dr. Jack Kennedy, 77, passed away peacefully at his home on July 26, 2015, with his loving wife, Patricia, at his side. He was preceded in death by his parents Ruby Drake Kennedy and C.A. Kennedy of Culleoka, Tenn. He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Patricia Kennedy; brother Al Kennedy, of Newnan, Ga., and daughter Dr. Karin Kennedy. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Jack earned his medical degree at University of Louisville School of Medicine, in Louisville, Ky. He was president of his graduating class. He interned at Erlanger Hospital and stayed in Chattanooga where he practiced general medicine until one month before his death. Jack loved music and worked his way through college as a disc jockey. He was affectionately known as the "Rock Doc" because he served as the backstage doctor for rock bands who performed in Chattanooga and the surrounding area. Among Jack's famous patients were Dolly Parton, Michael Bolton, Rod Stewart and Marie Osmond. Riverbend entertainment director Dixie Fuller, a close friend, remembers how it all got started. "I was in Murfreesboro, setting up for a Fleetwood Mac concert. The manager came up to the loading ramp and said he needed a doctor to look at the lead singers throat. He was worried about having to cancel the concert. I told him I was meeting a doctor in a few minutes. When Jack drove up, I took him straight from the car to the band. He had some kind of throat coating medicine in his bag and got her fixed up. He saved the concert." Local TV personality Chip Chapman says Jack was the only doctor hes ever had who insisted on being called by his first name. "Jack had a natural gift for communication. He would tell you what your ailment was and how the two of you were going to treat it. He'd follow up with a phone call just to see how you were doing. In years of being his patient, I never felt rushed. You could tell he had a genuine interest in how you were doing. Jack was much more than my physician; he was my longtime friend. "A little-known fact about Jack is that he would actually make house calls. Many times, he'd tell me about stopping by an elderly patients house to check on them or give them a flu shot. When I said, 'You make house calls Jack?' He'd shrug his shoulders in that self-deprecating manner he had, and say, 'When I'm at that stage, I hope there's a doctor who'd think enough of me to do the same." Dixie tells a similar story. "Once, I had come in off the road. There was no work, and Mom needed me at home. I was helping out at Zarzours for a while, feeling depressed and sorry for myself. Jack called and asked how I was. I told him I was down, and he said, "Well, I am going up to Sale Creek to visit an old man whos dying of cancer. You want to go?" I said yes, so we went together, and it changed my attitude. Every minute I spent with Jack was a treasure." Local attorney Hank Hill has been friends with Jack for nearly 40 years. "I first met Jack in 1977. I was fresh out of law school and dead broke. I had gotten a severe infection in both ears after swimming in a local creek. The health department gave me antibiotic ear drops to which I was extremely allergic. Within a few days, I became essentially deaf. Friends told me about Jack. He saw me that day. He treated me for three months and I recovered fully. He never charged me a cent. He was my dear friend from that point forward. He even used his antique limousine to chauffeur my wife and I from our wedding at the Pot House in Suck Creek to our reception at the Brass Register. He was a great American." "Saved by the Bell" star, Dennis Haskins, says he loved hanging out with Jack, listening to his practical advice, including this gem on five things you should never do: 1. When you are putting gas in your car, never step over the hose if you need to get something from the other side of your car. Youre asking for trouble. 2. If you are climbing higher than the third rung of a ladder, make sure you have someone on either side to hold the thing. The higher you go, the more likely something bad is going to happen. 3. Gasoline should only be used to make your car go not to start a fire, not to light a grill, not to clean stuff. Use it as anything but fuel for your car, and youre liable to go up in smoke. 4. If youre on the lake and the sun starts to set, get yourself off the lake. Theres always going to be something you miss sticking out of the water that you would have seen in daylight. 5. If you dont use a chain saw every single day, call someone who does. You dont want to see a quarter pound of your thigh meat sliced from the bone, because you dropped the saw or it jumped back at you while you were cutting. At 6-feet, 5-inches and 250 pounds, Jack could be intimidating. "But he was a gentle giant," Patricia says. "I'll never forget the first time I saw him ski. He was so graceful he looked like a dancer. "Jack had a good sense of humor," she says. "Jack loved people, and he especially loved his patients. Ive seen him not charge people for his services, then take money out of his pocket to pay for their medications. Even when he was in Siskin Hospital, he talked to patients on the phone every day." Dennis Haskins says Jack never said goodbye when parting company. "It was always See ya! So See ya, Jack! Im so much the better for being your friend." A celebration of Jack's life will be held at a yet-to-be-announced date at Rhythm & Brews in downtown Chattanooga. Friends of Jack's are encouraged to attend and share stories humorous or serious about his life.

Came home from work early, as my wife called and said we have an electrical problem.   Walked her through some stuff and determined the multiple circuits are down, but not the entire house.  Weird.  So, came home.  Tried the stove (220v) and it came on, but would barely heat.  More weird, but I'm forming a theory at this point.

When I pulled up, the power company was outside looking at their box.  No one had yet called them.  Our 'smart meter' reported the problem.  Found out that one of the 120v feeder lines to my house had gone bad.  There are two 110v plus a ground.  Just one of the two 110v lines was bad.  At the panel, one of the 110v feeds some circuits, and the other 110v feeds the other circuits.  And it takes the two together to make 220.

So it all makes sense now.  And the power is back on.  All of our lines are underground.   So, temporarily run a line, they ran it up a tree, hung the line across the street to another tree, and down to the box.  Eventually they will have to run a new line under the street.

So, if you ever lose some of your household circuits, but not all... could be a power company problem.

My oldest and his family (wife, daughter, doberman, chihuahua) moved back in.  Hopefully for just 1 week.  They are out of their rental lease, and closing on buying a house.  But the house purchase closing has been pushed back.  A little extra activity for a short while.

I have been working by butt off around the house and yard; and doing exercise (usually 20 mile bicycle ride) at least every other day.  Took my air conditioner Evaporator (A-coil) apart yesterday and cleaned it, reassembled it.  I think it really needs freon, but I wanted to try what I could do myself.  Harvested the remainder of my spinach crop.  I've been picking and eating it for months, but it is starting to bolt, and the coming heat will finish it off.  So, I pulled the plants and harvested all the remaining leaves.   Took my granddaughter to get a bike helmet, and worked with her on learning to ride a 21 speed bike we picked up for her at a garage sale.

It is crazy how busy retirement seems to be right now.   There is just so much stuff I postponed, and just didn't do because I was swamped with work+everything else.  Now I feel like I don't have the "no time" excuse.

I am spending so much less time sitting at a computer!

Congrats, Honky!  I haven't been in quite awhile.

We have 5 "riverboat" casinos, and one Indian casino, in KC.  I like all of them well enough.  I like to play blackjack on a 50-100 stake.  $5 table if I can find one, and I'll do $10 table if I have to, and really want to play.  Many times, I've walked the tables without finding the right table, and just kept my money.  If they don't provide the game I want, I'll walk.  (And probably come out better, anyway.)  Downside is that unless I have a really great night, the best I'll do is leave with $100-$200 of the casino's money.  No big jackpots (and no visit to the IRS window!!!)  Worst case, I'll lose $50-$100.  I am disciplined and never pull out more money to win back my loss.

My Mom likes to do Blackjack tournaments at the casino.  Now that I'm retired, I think I will take her to one.

We just made reservations for tuesday and wednesday. I'll probably do blackjack this time. The tables I observed  were 15 min 1000 max bet. Im like you i did not see a group of folks I wanted to sit with.
I like to get a good buzz on and take the gambling lightly. Like they say a mofo that will put its back to the wall and take on the world, dont FK with it. We only shot 80 down the slots and got 750 back. They have you nailed, you get a rewards card issued in your name, the machine has a slot to insert your card  for casino rewards when in reality you are being tracked.

Back in the day I've owned a few video poker and fruit machines. They are a gold mine if you dont get caught

Took a grand in cash and came home with 1350.00.  The room cost 200 for 2 days , spent 400 on food and drinks . Which made the trip cost 250.00 . If we would have left after the 1st night  I would have turned a profit again.

Sounds like a good haul.  We used to go to the 'boats' more regularly.  We'd usually eat at the big buffet with crab legs, etc.  My goal was to win enough to cover dinner and the baby sitter.  And cover my wife's loss.  Pulled it off quite a few times.

In the past 2 weeks, I spent 3 days in the casino. I ate free , drank free and stayed free and am 100 bucks to the better.  I ate lots of fine food in fine restaurants and drank wine till I could drink no more.

We made reservations again for Wednesday.  So far we have enjoyed lots of fun for free. I hope this trip is the same.  They opened up a new casino 50 miles closer to us and the rooms are really cheap but they only have a food court like the mall. We decided to drive the extra 50 for the restaurants. Its only 150 miles door to door.

My guys at the shop have over 100K of work in progress which means I have to stay close and keep the projects in check. When this round of projects is complete. Im headin south to the villages for some fun and lots of fresh seafood!

This time the slots ate 175 and the room,food and drinks were 330. 1 day 505. If I divide it by 4 days of gambling.drinking ,eating like a king with a nice room it figures 125 per day. We drink and eat 200 bucks per day. It was still a deal.

My wife was saying after I called it quits, let me have another 100. I feel lucky. I sais OK but this is your money which I already owe you if you want to gamble it.  She didn't gamble her money !

If I'm going to hit at all it usually happens right away.  If it's cold I quit right away.  I'm more of a craps shooter than anything else, and they don't have craps in any of the casinos in California, so that keeps the temptation factor pretty low for me.

My wife called Harrah's new casino in Murphy. 50 miles closer.  They comped our room for Tuesday night !  I liked Cherokee mostly for the food. This one only has a  food court with several brands.

I think they built this one to pull in folks from the Atlanta area. They sell out on the weekends.

My buddy can get us comped rooms in Parker Arizona at the Blue Water.  The Colorado River is right out the back door of your room.  We all hung out there Easter weekend.  It's the same kind of set up that most Indian casinos are, mostly slots and keno machines.
Title: Re: Gee Roy, it sure is quiet around here!
Post by: BH on June 29, 2016, 05:30:20 PM
Just got in. This casino had a K in slots  and all the table games.  We were up 600 inside of 30 mins. We looked at each other and knew this was where we should hop off the bus, but it was only like 3 pm and we had all night. End result,  trip cost me 250, drink, food and gambling with te room being on the house.  It was nice, new and very clean but had no dining just fast food. For us we'll drive the extra 50 miles for their larger casino in Cherokee.  They have big plans for this 1 in Murphy NC. It is positioned 120 miles from Atlanta and is designed for expansion.

We came to play and have some fun. The biggest thing i think both casinos need is somewhere in a corner they need a rock band and a party.  5 trips this month cost me 750. Thats a great value considering that number included food, drink, gambling and a nice room.

Heading to the villages on tuesday !

The seafood platter was called plenty for two. Fried oysters and clams, grilled shrimp,fish,scallops and crab cakes with hush puppies & 4 sides. 40 bucks including 2 ice teas and taxes. it was all we could do to eat it all, but we did it.
3 times while there ! I love fresh Florida seafood !

The picture of me and the wife was taken by a friend Carol Watkins. I have a friend on another guitar site who lives near the villages who came out and played trivia with us one night last year, he told us his sisternlaw comes alot to the bar where we were playing trivia. Turns out we had already met and were friends with Carol. it's a small world.

I used to travel the SE coastal area for work many years ago.  They had a thing called calabash seafood, all over Myrtle Beach area, and lots of place in the Carolinas.   I think it is named for Calabash, NC.  Usually buffets, everything fried. 

I love that stuff!   But a plate like that, it is like making an appointment to get up and puke in the middle of the night.  I grew up eating lots of fried and greasy food.  But anymore, I have to watch the grease, or that meal's gonna bounce.  Probably a good thing, as it makes me eat a little healthier.

My wife has been ill for a week and in bed, finally went to the doctor yesterday, found out it was pneumonia. She's coming back to life, especially since the casino gave her a free night, 40 bucks for the slots and a free dinner. i guess you know where im going in a few days.

I play blackjack, and can hold my own.  If I lose my modest starting stake, I walk.  I can break even or win quite a bit.   (By break even, I mean get down, then back up to my starting stake and leave if it doesn't feel right.)  I never seem to earn comps.  I take that to mean that they know I'm not pumping money into the casino, and often walking out with some of theirs.  A compliment.

BH, I've been spending lots of time with my 2-1/2 year old grandson lately.  Filling in for child care about every Monday in the past month.  Also, some Thurs and Fri.  Also took my son and family to the lake last weekend.  When I watch him, I take him with me to do whatever errands I need to do.  Then I take him to the zoo, petting zoo, airport, park, pool, whatever.  Wear him down.  He falls asleep on the way home.  I spend an hour or so picking up, then join him for the last hour or two of nap time.  Pretty sweet.

We have an indoor skydiving place near us.  I took Kaeleb there Monday so he could see people fly.  He thought that was pretty cool.

The Laura Lisbeth Band hasn't had a gig in several weeks.  Playing outdoors next Saturday, on The Plaza.  Had rehearsal last night, and we are sounding good!  She had been trying to use a Taylor T5, and was never satisfied with the sound.  She went back to her D28 Martin, and I've got my little Quilter rig dialed in nicely.  Looking forward to playing out again.  Also thinking about trying to do some solo acoustic gigs.  Trying to figure out where the gigs are, and what kind of repertoire I want/need.

In local news...  our Schlitterban water park had a fatality on Sunday.  10 year old kid, and the word is that he was 'decapitated'.  It was "Legislator Day", and the kid was a State Legislator's son.  A big waterslide you do in a raft with 3 or so other people.  He got ejected out of the raft.  When they were developing the park, they tested this waterslide/ride, and the rafts were shooting off the side.  They had to make adjustments, before the park opened.   I won't be riding that anytime soon.  Or ever.

I heard about the kid getting killed on the news here in California.  They were reporting that he was seven years old.  Velcro seat belts?  WTF is up with that?  People had recently reported that the Velcro was coming loose, but no one did anything about it.  I heard they were going to be open for business today.  A little clean up and SHAZAM!  Good as new!

Good luck, Ken!  Its not easy, but has its rewards.

I did an Associates degree, night school at the local JuCo, while working 40+ hours and managing small kid obligations.  It was insane.   6 to 9 credit hours per semester; with a condensed 3 credit during the summer.  Many nights working on papers till 2am or so.  Taking calculus homework to work with me, so I wouldn't be up all night finishing.  Most nights, I was at class after work, till 9pm, dinner in the juco cafeteria.  At that time, work would reimburse tuition costs.

The thing I love most  about retirement is not having that feeling of "every minute of my time is overbooked, and very little of it is stuff I want to be doing."  That feeling has hung over me a lot.   Good riddance.  I am still busy, but on my own terms.

Cool place!  Must be a little sorry to see it go.  Did it sound like the lady's voice was synthesized speech?

I am looking toward selling the sailboat I've owned for the past 25+ years.  Selling it is part of the process of downsizing, and getting ready to move to the coast to buy an ocean boat.  So, plenty of up side, but selling the other one will be bittersweet.

You may be right about the narrator. Its time to turn the page, Im happy in my condo and not having any exterior responsibilities. We are at the point of don't buy stuff, if I cant eat it, drink it, drive it or have sex with it, I don't need it !
  The listing agent has been our friend since about 1983. Her husband and I were everyday friends and partners in lots of business adventures before we had kids. They never had children and we drifted apart due to lifestyles. Tim is one of the workingest musicians in Chattanooga for the past 30 yrs. . Music and golf is all he does, you start talking work and he slips out the back.

Labor day weekend was a long one.   Spent all day Saturday getting fit for a tux for my daughters wedding.  No fun and stupid expensive.  It will be $300 to rent a tux for a day.  Stinking highway robbery.

Sunday we had our second annual jam at the lake event.   This year the timing was much much better.  We had boats from the other side of the lake come over and anchor to listen to the music.   Didn't have enough lead time to get ready though, and only had 3 hours of music lined up.   

2 different neighbors came to praise us for the music.   Asked us to play all night long. 

Next year will be better yet

Still kicking over here.  Played a gig with Laura a few weeks ago.  A place that demanded real low volume, so our drummer graciously agreed to play an electronic set through the PA.   Nice being able to hear everything! 

Coming into spring without a boat (sold mine, last fall).  First time in over 30 years.

Going to the Miami Sailboat show next week.  Got to get serious about moving and getting that next boat.  Sailing away from TrumpMerica.

Sounds good.  We are in 1 1/2 story.  Master on main level, and 3 (empty) bedrooms upstairs.  Big finished basement.  A lot of house for 2 people. Time to downsize/move!

Think 1 level. Old and stairs don't work well. Here is the floor plan we hope to do. I broke the auto cad out a couple of weeks back and modified an existing plan allowed in the development. It's a shot gun style home 35 ft wide x 105 ft overall length. The homes in the development are side by side modeled after 1920's Chattanooga historic homes.

Gosh, I feel like I neglect everyone recently. 

Been totally engrossed in schooling when I can.   Had 16 credits last semester while working 50 hours per week, hosting an open mic, regular church attendance, caring for a dying aunt and a rest of the jiggy crap.

Have had some health issues that are unresolved

But on a lighter note, have had the opportunity for some great new gear trades.  Have a Kemper coming this week got on trade.  If this is what it is hyped up to be, I am going to keep a few pedals and the vox ac30 as a back up and sell everything else. 

Got a stupid deal on a nash 12 string telecaster style guitar. Had the opportunity to get the 12 string or 6 string at a stupid price.   Good guitar, but don't quite think the Nash name is all that it is hyped up to be.  Don't get me wrong, it is good, but it's not, throw out your fender custom shops and get these good.

Open mic has been totally frustrating.  In January had a singer drop a mic and bust it and then ask me if I was going to give him extra time because the equipment didn't work.  Last time the owners son was sitting where we put up our stage and didn't want to move so I could set up.  Kind of wonder if I want to put so much into this right now.

Haven't heard from the devil, although the logs say he checked in in the past three months.  Who knows what that means.

Peace to you alL!

The work/school thing is tough.  I did that for several years.  Maybe not quite 16 credit hours/50 hours work.  But, close.  And with young kids at home, so my homework time always started after 10pm.  Many worknights staying up till 3 or 4am finishing a paper or project.  Hang in there!   I am still playing with Laura, since she handles all the gig-getting, etc.  But I kind of burned out on holding my own band together and dealing with bar owners.  The - 'why am I putting up with this crap' thoughts.  I also had some band members bitching about other band members; owners pissed about not moving enough Bud Light; and it just became not worth it.

Shifting gears.  We are very likely to be living aboard a sailboat within the next 12 months.  We just returned from the Miami sailboat show.  Lots of hanging with people who cruise full time.  Many long time cruisers, and several who've just started out.

We have shifted strategy from wanting to relocate to a house on the coast first; to relocating directly to a boat.   The old plan was kind of slow, long, and nebulous.  Now things are snapping into place.  We are seeing lots of viable boats in our price range.  My wife plans to leave her job this fall.  Emptying and selling our house will go into high gear, then.  And we will move to where ever the right boat is (East Coast or Gulf).  Pick a marina somewhere as a base for the first month or so, while prepping and learning the boat.  Coastal US and Bahamas till we have shaken out all the bugs and feel confident to head on into the Caribbean.  Pretty exciting.    Have to pare down music gear pretty dramatically.  But I've made my peace with all that. 

Much to learn about being an ex-pat, sea gypsy.  But, we have all those who've gone before us, as resources.  And now we are in touch with many, and kind of cracked a whole network of great resources.

Me and the wife lived on a houseboat a few years when we were first married, we would move into a furnished apartment a few months in the winter. We had a washer and dryer onboard which was nice.
There's wants and needs and you have to get down to the bare necessities. Our boat was a 40 foot but we only had about 300 square ft of living space plus the covered deck. The downside of living on the boat was we rarely took it out of the marina.

Good luck living the simple life !

There are lots of boats that almost never leave the marina.  Our goal is to not be based in a marina more the the first 1-2 months.   Then, depending on the location and time of year we will head north or south.  Planning to stay in free anchorages to the extent possible/practical.  If we head out Spring/Summer, I think we will head north, for hurricane season.  Probably make our way through the Chesapeake, and up to Maine.  Then start heading south toward the Caribbean, at the end of hurricane season.

Yeah, washer/dryer.  My wife has eyed boats that have washers on them.  That is one area we disagree on.  I may change my tune, after a few months of washing clothes in a bucket; or seeking out laundromats.  Every piece of gear on a boat, amounts to making an appointment to fix that gear at some point.  I want to draw the line somewhere before "washing machine".  I am a little undecided on A/C and generators.  We will most likely have DC refrigeration, probably small freezer, and solar panels to help make power.  Leaning towards having a watermaker (desalinator).   Some people call cruising "fixing your boat in exotic places."  I understand and accept all that.

Anyway, I am really starting to get stoked.  My wife and I are having near-manic conversations about it.   It all looks so doable now.  Once my wife declared when she would like to leave her job, this whole thing has taken off.  This morning she said, how about June, instead of September.  My sister-in-law has agreed to store a couple of guitars I want to keep and not subject to humidity and salt/sea.  I will take an acoustic.  And space permitting, maybe my strat and a small amp/pedal rig.  I could find some playing/gigging opportunities.   Proceeds from everything else can go towards outfitting/provisioning.

And, anything that I feel attached to, I ask this question:  If that piece of stuff stands between me and going cruising, which do I choose?  It becomes very easy at that point.  Beyond a few guitars, I am not really attached to anything.  Just a daunting task to get rid of it all.  Especially the things of value that we need to take the time to Ebay, or Craigslist.  There will be an estate sale at some point.  And a dumpster.  I look forward to taking my winter clothes to Goodwill!!!   

We met these folks at the boat show.  They are from Wisconsin.  Bought and prepped their boat in WI, then came down the river system; across the Gulf, and around FL.  They had their estate sale in June.  So, they have just done all the stuff we are facing.  Interesting blog of their journey so far.  http://svpearllee.com (http://svpearllee.com)

If you have space and have hanging clothes be sure to use plastic hangers, unless you happen to like rust stained clothing. Remember the sun down there will eat your Ass alive. I spend a lot of time in Fl these days but I don't stir till the evening. I've spent a lifetime in the sun and that part of my life is over.

We are in the process of paring down to what will fit on a boat; as we prepare to sell our house.  Yeah not only heat and humidity, but salt air is very corrosive.  I am thinking guitar strings won't last long.  Working on my strategies.  FL has a 6% sales tax.  AL has none.  Some advantages to starting out somewhere else.  You can't re-establish in FL until after 6 months, then you can do so tax free.  Quite a complex little puzzle.

I've been woodshedding for the last couple of months, and have been learning tons of stuff.  I've actually played so much that my fingertips are like hamburger.  It's been a long time since anything like that has happened.  Turns out I'm not the worst student I've ever had......

I had a colonoscopy yester day.  Two polyps removed, but they said they aren't cancerous or anything like that.  This is like the 5th one for me.  The first time they took out a half a dozen pre-cancerous polyps, but apparently that was the end of all that.  This was the first procedure I've had where they knocked me all the way out.  MUCH BETTER!  I never figured out why they wanted me conscious for the first 4, I really was never that much help.......

Yeah BH, I'm trying to weigh all the taxes for a potential home base state-- sales tax on boats, income, property.  My income will be pension, plus some 401k draw.  Many states give the pensions a pass.  My wife just spotted a job she might like in Myrtle Beach.   If that pans out, it will be a factor.  We don't plan to need her to keep working.  I know many people have trouble walking away from having a job.  I've known several to "retire", then take another job within a month.  That is not me!  I'm almost at a year, and I would not consider holding a job again, unless finances required it.

It is quite a trip, going through our house and reducing our stuff to what will fit on a boat.  If I feel attached to anything, I ask myself:  Do I like this thing, more than I want to become a sea gypsy?  Answer is always a loud NO.  My wife is digitizing all the old photos we have in boxes. 

I am starting to downsize music gear.  When I bough my SKB Les Paul case last year, they shipped me a carton with 2 cases in it.  So my first craigslist ad is the brand new case.  Tele (thin, set neck, humbuckers), my old ES-330, will go.  I pulled out my early '80s vintage Roland GR300 w/GR202 controller and found one of the switches wasn't working.  Found a broken solder on the ground wire connection, and good as new!  Looks like they can fetch a good price!  I also have an old grey Ross compressor from the 70s.  They go for 300-500 these days.  I think I paid less the 100.  Lots more amps, cabs, PA gear, mics, lights, recording gear, etc.

I have a lot of cool stuff collecting dust!   

My sister in law as agreed to store what I want to hang on to, but not bring to the boat.  My '42 J-45, and my Les Paul, are probably all that will make the cut.  I think I will take my Breedlove with me, and maybe my strat, my tiny Quilter minihead 101, and a small speaker cab.  Maybe my pedal board, or key parts of it, like the Ethos pedal.  Hopefully enough gear that I can do a gig with someone, should the opportunity come up. 

Studying for a captains license now.  Necessary for any charter for pay work we might decide to do.  Not counting on the income, but now is the time to get it out of the way.  Requires a very thorough physical and drug test.  I'm also studying for the drug test.  I probably need 4 weeks to make sure that I'll pass.  One week into that.  Again, the question of "Do I want this more than I want to go sailing?"  NO.  Easy.  Ramping up some exercise to make sure I don't get a high BP reading when I go in for the physical.  I think I will go to a school with a 7 or 10 day kind of program, which will include the USCG exam.

Anyway, sorry to ramble on so long.  Shits getting real.  A bit scary, and exciting at the same time.  I know any of us can come up with a physical/medical show stopper at any time.  So, the time is now.

Speaking of insurance , from what I'm hearing us old folks are gonna get screwed on the republican healthcare plan ?  My insurance is presently 875 per month@62. My wife just hit 65 and hers with great supplements is less than 400 including Medicare

Actually, under the new plan, insurance is no longer compulsory.....@ $300. a week, they could BL** me and spit.  It's all a big crap shoot.  You're betting $300, that you're going to be ill this week, they're betting their profit margin that you aren't.  Even the majority of Repubs aren't supporting this new plan.  Paul Ryan is one of these guys who tries to sneak his warm hand in your pants, and when sounded about it, tries to say he's only checking your pulse.

The main feature of the new plan-- $600 billion in tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate.  That is what's driving the bus.

Trump better not F this up or it will haunt him on every major change he tries to make. Everyone wants healthcare but no one is willing to pay for it, they only want to cry to big brother when they come up short.

Tax money comes from the middle, if it's the republicans they spray it on the top of the pile and claim it trickles down and if the democrats are in charge they pump it into the bottom, it goes right through the po folks hands and back to the top. Problem is there is not enough middle anymore. All the while racking up more debt for the nation.

Instead of the mandate, the new GOP plan has an incentive-- if you go uninsured, then decide you want insurance, the insurance companies get to rape you for an extra 30%, for the first year.  All goes in the pocket of the insurance company.  Great deal for the insurance companies.  Their slimy little fingerprints are all over this thing.

Ryan doesn't want it called "Ryancare", Trump doesn't want it called "Trumpcare".  Says a lot.  Right now, it doesn't look too likely to pass in its present form.  We'll see.

If I was HMFIC, my muscle would jam Paul Ryan up in a corner and say listen up MF.
if I was DT, that sold out SB would have a miserable existence. I would bait my trap with pu$$#, works every time.

If them sons of B's had an ounce of honesty, someone would get up and beat the hell out of some body for lying. Instead they say, I'd like to address the honorable congressman from xyz

If Donald gets term limits it will be a big win for everyone. Also make them MF's wear jackets with all their sponsors logo's, when you take money from an insurance company for your war chest, you should be recused or prosecuted for accepting a bribe.

It's ironic that these sons of bitches look down on people on welfare, when they can go for decades with out working a day, while all the time sucking the governments tit.  I'd pay good money to see Yo give Paul Ryan a good working over.

They also need to stop letting insurance companies write the bills.  I believe we could have twice the healthcare at half the price if we could get those leeches off of our jugulars.

Here in Chattanooga we have Bluecross, they claim non profit status. They bought an entire hill in the heart of downtown which was a great apartment complex, tore it down and built the biggest and most expensive building in the city. Any business small or large should not be able to contribute to anything related to politics whether it is local, state or national.

I must confess I did send Trump 500 bucks, if he doesn't get assassinated I think he will go down as one of the GOAT. Ronald Reagan said when he shook Donald Trumps hand he felt like he had just met a future president.

I read up on our history of healthcare.  There was a "Blue Cross", that was actually a REAL non-profit.  Pay in, and if you have a catastrophic illness, it pays.  Largely after WWII, employer group plans started catching on.  In the beginning, they were only for catastrophic stuff.  Labor market was tight.  Pretty much anyone who wanted to work had a job.  Most cases, a lifetime job.  And employers had to compete with fringe benefits, such as health insurance.  Truman tried a national healthcare plan, but the usual suspects opposed it as socialism and it got nowhere.

In 1965, we got medicare and medicaid to cover the unemployed, poor, and old (well, 65 is not really old is it?)

When I was younger, it seems like you just paid for things like office visits and prescriptions, because they were reasonable and affordable.  Insurance was only for big things like hospital stays.  And I do not believe the insurance companies had the empires, that they command today.  I think insurance today is used as a smokescreen to hide how much you are being gouged by the medical industry, pharma, and the insurance companies themselves.

Almost a job, in itself.

I should have sold off much of this stuff long ago.

I'm down almost all my pedals and amps.   Stopped by Dave's Guitar in Lacrosse Wisconsin.  It was nice visiting the guitar museum.  I sat and stared at a Les Paul that Mary Ford played and dreamed about a day where things were much simpler and a woman didn't need to have a collection of 300 guitars.

Hope you all are doing well.  Kinda quiet around here.  I just got back from a 10 day trip to Sea School in Bayou LaBatre, AL.  Passed my captain's license test.  Pretty cool experience.  Stayed in dorm, as there were no motels/hotels nearby.  The dorm was free, and they feed you three hot meals a day.  Most of the guys there were working on barge/tug/tow jobs, looking to advance.  Some worked on supply boats for oil platforms.  And others were getting set up to do fishing charters.  Instructor spent 30 years in the navy, as skipper of a lot of big vessels.  Lots of sea stories.  Class of twenty two guys, and most of us were staying in the dorm.  So, 10 hours class (7:30 - 17:30) lunch and dinner.  Then we were all studying in in ad hoc groups.  Big screened in patio with picnic tables (90% smokers).  Drove there and back from KC, 14 hours each way.  On the way there stopped in Mobile, AL.  On the way back, spent the night in downtown Memphis.  Had dinner down on Beale St.  Got to love it when all the waitresses call you sweetie, darling, etc.

Just before my trip, I picked up a Traveler  AG-450 EQ travel guitar.  This little thing is a blast.  The neck is absolutely full size.  Headless with screw tuners at the far end of the body.  Built in tuner, headphone jack, input for play-along music.  And the acoustic volume is huge.  I swear it is louder than my full dreadnaught size Breedlove.  It has the punch-you-in-the-chest thing like my old J-45.  And it visibly resembles the J-45 a lot.  I got to play it on my trip a lot.  At home, it is becoming my go to.

We just signed a contract to sell our house.  Closing Sept 15.  So, we will be intentionally homeless in a month!  Exciting times. 

We found a perfect buyer.  We are going 'by owner', not even a 'buyers agent'.  Better price for buyer, better proceeds for seller.  Also, they left most of their belongings behind in their last house, so they are perfectly fine with leaving most everything.  That eliminates our need to have a final 'estate sale' push to get rid of furniture.  Most everything else is already pared down.

We were excited while we were selling/giving away belongs in the early summer.  As we shifted to 'selling the house', we kind of got into the doldrums.  Then BAM, contract, closing date, etc.  Nothing is foolproof till closing has happened, but the deal looks really good, and both sides are very committed to making this happen smoothly.  They have already used our address when signing their kids up.

I am switching off my old ISP email address to a new gmail (rich.reavis.kc@gmail.com).  What a pain, to figure out all the places that I am connected to, via that old email!  Figuring out mail hold/forward services, banking without physical address, etc.  RV'ers work through these same issues.

A little later in the year that I thought.  But, the upside is Hurricane Season ends in October, so the scenario of becoming a new boat owner, then immediately facing a hurricane is very unlikely now.   And we have the freedom to stay south, as we choose.

Time to make a final push to unload the rest of my music gear that is not going.  A friend of mine opened a music store a few months ago.  He will gladly consign whatever I don't sell before I leave.  Just chewing through all the to-do's.  A bunch of little issues, but they are all very workable. 

Planning on taking my Traveler AG 450, and my strat.  That Traveler is a blast to play on.  Small pedal board (I still have to cobble together), and my Quilter mini head.  I think I am going to sell of my Epi 1x12, I've been using.  I had thought about getting a small Orange cab with an 8" speaker.  But, I think I will wait till the real need for a cab arises.  We will be living out of a minivan, and various motel/hotel/airbnb/etc.  Space will be tight!  Taking whatever clothing, tools, boat gear, that we will continue to own.  I find myself saying "no room on the ark for that!".  What a great problem to have.

I plan to keep in touch, but internet access may be spotty at best.  Not necessarily a bad thing!

Cool, don't be the nice guy and let them move in before you close.

They are living with the husband's Mom, 1-2 miles from me.  They are OK there, and can take as long as they need to move (after 9/15).  So, I don't see them wanting in early.  If anything, we might be in a position where we are not out in time, and would rent back from the new owners.  Working hard to make sure that doesn't happen.

We probably will not be out till the day before we close!  So much to do!   Hauled a load of old paint/solvents/herbicides/pesticides to our local Hazardous Waste dropoff site.  Selling my PA on Saturday.  For my next trick, I will be weaning off of my desktop computer!  Moving everything to my laptop, and a few big standalone hard drives.  Also, setting up a mail forwarding/scanning service and switching mailing address.  Changed to a portable email address earlier.  Lots of odd stuff to think about!

I got an iPhone 7plus last year and the only time I do the pic anymore is business accounting. If I put my quickbooks in the cloud, I can handle that with the iPhone. I'm am now one of those people with my head in the device all day.

Good luck with your new life !

Getting the toys set up at the new place. I got 4 mics and I also attached the focusrite 2 channel pre amp the line 6 pod pro and the BBE bass preamp in the remaining  4 slots on the 8 channel interface

I've been studying a lot, trying to build my chops   My health problems are holding their usual pattern.  The bone infection came back, why wouldn't it?  I elected to go with suppression therapy, and taking a relatively easy to tolerate antibiotic for probably the rest of my life as opposed to getting cut on again, especially considering both of the last two surgeries never healed completely, and the bone infection still came back.  I've been playing in the studio some, helping some guys I've known all my life put out a CD.  I'll stick a couple of cuts in your FB message box.  That's about all that's going on with me.  I play out a couple of times a month, it's something to do .....
