    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Just wanted to drop this in here because we should all tickle the strings this nicely: Thanks for it all, Ed.

    First, glad to hear you're growing your locks long again, you gotta wave that rocknroll hair. We're reopening here too, but as usual I'm a bit of the skeptic, so I still mask up and practice distance; I have family with tough medical issues and don't have the right to endanger them. I hope...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    I hear you, Charlie. This is not the country I signed up to serve 30 years ago. I almost feel as if they're spitting on our oath. Also, your comment about "sharing hope" is a proper time-on-target shoot. Good gunnery there, m'friend. In times like this we must all share hope, or go tits-up.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Any day I roll out of bed under my own power and walk on my own two feet, well, that's one Hell of a good start. I'm easy like that.

    It's young enough to still kick your heels up on occasion. Rock and roll, I say.

    <groping blindly for coffee> Many happy returns for all three of you.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    That same weighted decision process has taken place here in Texas. As a result, we're seeing a jump in the numbers of new cases ... and we're still not fully opened. I'm getting ready for a rough ride, myself. With my mom on immunosuppressants for her RA, and her husband having COPD, diabetes...

    Keeping my head down and profile low. I moved out to the country seven years ago precisely to get "social distancing". It's working out fine for me. :) How's life treating ya?

    I've heard of flame tops. That looks like a fireball top.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    It's a beautiful day here today. A "cold front" came in overnight, meaning we're only forecast to hit 93°F or so (we hit 100 yesterday for the first time this year). I'm going to drill holes on my head-cab, and apply the first of three gloss-coats (wet-sanding between coats) today. I'm also...

    My condolences, bud.

    Beat after a long day at work. Howdy to y'all and I'll pop in tomorrow when my brain is able to build a few coherent thoughts in a row.

    Glad to hear it, John. Stay safe and be well.

    Here's hoping it's run-of-the-mill and not the 2020 Special, brotha.

    I just yakked in my soup, and not just for thinking about Grateful Dead music.

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    It's all good, bud. Yeah, I'm thinking it'll be something like that, a medium-wattage tube amp, preferably 6L6s, 30-40 watts. Orange, Egnater, perhaps even a Mesa head. I want something that can play the small roadhouses we have out here, 75-150 capacity joints, without PA support if need be...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    That's the thing about modeling. If I go that route, I'm looking at even more outlay, but really, what I play does not need that versatility. I've played a good few models, and my amp can give pretty good cleans so if need be I could use efx-loop return and get useable stuff, but rather than dig...

    The Mad Hatter's Tea Party

    Yeah, I do think a lot of jerks glommed onto the marching and gave one shitty talking-point out to those who'd reject even the peaceful protests (not that I'm saying that about you, brotha, you know that). Cull the jerks and let the peaceful have their say. I also think a lot of PDs, not just...
