well, i had to pop in once more, becauwe i forgot to get back to scot about my wife's scion xb.  so first things first:

i was able to fit my 88-key skb in it without having to lay down the passenger sided front seat.  i did have to shove it all the way to the front, so someone with no legs could still sit there.  the great part is that the back seat splits so you can fold only one side down, leaving the other seat available for a friend who has legs.  but if you're also carting amplification, you may well use the entire car:)

as for my leaving, ii didn't really mean to be a drama queen!  i guess i  should have kept my thoughts to myself (once again:)

anyway, i was not prepared for all the nice notes i got.  that sort of makes me feel like a dick to quit hanging here...but nevertheless, i spend way too much time goofing around, and when that goofing around backfirs and causes me frustration....welll....you know...

i really appreciate being a member of the guild, so if my account remains open, i'd like to pop in here from time to time and do some catching up.  i'll do my best to avoid the lounge (another bad neighborhood- heh heh)

here's my email if y'all care to keep in touch :


and 7, i'd love to hear that cd....how about i send you one of mine.  i'm currently out of them, but if i can afford another box, i'll send you one:)  (a pisser to have to buy your own recordings, but in  fairness to the guy that paid for it, i'll comply:)

and...mike...heh heh...you've outdone yourself in the lounge!

c y'all
