    One of my favorite nights of the year.

    This is the 9th year I've been invited to attend the Christmas awards banquet for the volunteer auxiliary at our regional medical center. This is one of those groups that renews your faith in humanity. This is a big group. The young ones are in their 70's. Most in their 80's. These are the folks...

    Thinking about making a sign

    We talked about this recently. I had it happen again last night. Couple walks in with their two emotional support chihuahuas, complete with vests. Not trained, not well behaved at all. Grumpy owners. Can I put this on my door??? "If you can't eat a meal without your emotional support...

    Can't print from Chrome help

All of a sudden, this morning I can't do it. Tried a bunch of stuff to no avail. Goggled it and turns out its a...

    Epi ES 175 models

    There's a 175 local I'm thinking about. Haven't seen it yet. Trying to get up to speed on the different models. It looks to be the re-issue, not the premium. Besides alnico vs 57's, what are the other differences? Are there other models? Which one was GC blowing out a few years ago that...

    No, but I slept in a Holiday Inn last night.

    I thought this was extremely cool, innovative thinking. I've got a regular customer that retired here a long time ago in a nice senior's subdivision. Wife died, sold the house, checked out all the assisted living complexes. After checking em all out, seeing what they were like and adding up...

    I brought cake

    Today looks to be my 5th anniversary on MLP, so I brought y'all cake. The day marks two good things for me. I joined MLP the same time I pulled the guitar out from underneath the bed after taking a 30 year hiatus to raise kids and start a business. That's proven to be a really good move for me...

    My turn at a tough day

    Too many of these lately. Today was my turn. This is a 14 yr old pic This morning, I let em go together. They’d never been apart. The big guy had gotten real bad, real fast. The little girl was only still around to keep him company. She had been in bad shape, but being smaller made it easier...

    Instead of coming home to a ticker-tape parade, Korean War soldier Billy Joe Butler never received a reception — jubilant or otherwise. In fact, he never returned home at all. That changed this week. Butler was just 19 and serving as a U.S. Army corporal when he was captured by Chinese Communist...

    Your data

    I know there's been several lengthy discussions here about data. Last week I was at a statewide conference where one of the general session keynotes was about the future of Google, Apple and Amazon and their respective moves into healthcare. The big 3 all see their role in healthcare as their...

    Scratched an old itch this weekend

    Always had a hankering to try one. Managed to do some horse trading with a guy I’ve worked with several times and ended up loading up some B-Teamers and swapping for this. After 2 dates, she’s looking like she’s gonna be an A-Teamer. Really like her. ‘97 Ric 330

    "Some guy on a guitar forum"

    A while back @mudface made a post about being into miniature die cast model cars. I had a box full in the storeroom. I asked if I could send em to him to try and do something with. I tried my best to set it up as an absolutely no pressure, no expectations deal. After some conversation, my last...

    My advice to young guys playing out

    My advice to young guys playing out for the first time: Wear a fedora and a Hawaiian shirt Watching a little television. I had a couple of those PBS things recorded where maybe you get a little music in between DVD pledge pitches. The British Invasion. Sounded good. It's nothing but a bunch of...
