Re: Gone Too Soon

Whoop, sorry. When you posted Mitch's obit, your avatar is at the top of the thread. Just wondering if you could post using Mitch's avatar instead, so it would look like Mitch posted his own obit. ...

Re: Gone Too Soon

May I segue, Mike?

Mr. Mayor, would it be possible to "retire" the member's avatar in the initial post. If not here, maybe going forward.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

Re: A New Journey

Thanks, Uncle Larry.

Thanks, Mr. Mayor.

Mitch has a Facebook page that's easy to find, too. I don't do Facebook, but it's another glimpse to our friend's "other" life. He'll be greatly missed.

Re: A New Journey

Oh, Dear God, Larry. I've checked the obits in Albuquerque a couple of times and always came up blank (thinking, "that's good.") I've been out of pocket since last Friday - no internet.

Re: A New Journey

I'm still here for you, Mitch. Not a day has gone by that I haven't considered you and your struggle and offered a prayer Heaven-ward. I'm sure that I'm not alone. Miracles can and DO happen - I'm...

Re: A New Journey

Yeah, you can, UL. As we get older, the thought of our mortality goes from blurry to a bit more focused. The Big C. puts mortality under a microscope - with stage lights! Things start getting...

Last weekend I went to mow my Up-North property (above the 45th Parallel) and I got bit by a bug on my ankle. My wife says it looks like a spider bite ("It has a...

Re: Get better Andy!

Dear DW Members,

Don't you realize what Andy has done?!? He's sacrificed his health to entice Duncan and some other Old Timers from the woodwork - and it worked!!

Bless You, Andy. I thank you...

Re: Band lighting - small venues

Okay, let me get this straight... I've got 4 foot (1.2 m), 6500K "daylight" fluorescent shop lights in my basement. Should I go with something warmer - say around 3000K? For back-lighting, I could...

Re: How many travelling pro drummers have kids?

Thanks for your service, Sir!

Sounds like we've got a lot in common, aside from the color of our uniforms. (US Army, Retired). There was a 54 month period in the mid 80's where I was only home...

Re: Do you wear rings when drumming?

You nailed it, Bert! A little homework and I found out that the forerunner to the "Chuck Taylor All Star" shoe has been around since 1917. They've been associated with Chuck Taylor since around...

Re: Do you wear rings when drumming?

Chuck Taylor's - look like knock-off Red Ball Jets (though haven't had a pair of those since the 1960's). My drumming feet like leather moccasins with no liner - don't need anything grippy. I wear...

Re: Little game....name that tune

Yeah, I know the drill. I get up at 3:15 AM Eastern to be to work at 5:30, but I get home around 4:00 pm. 1 hr commute one way, but it's easy farm country driving, if you don't mind dodging deer. ...

Re: Kenny Buttrey, Blonde on Blonde and more

He was in Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band for the 1978 live album, You Had to Be There. Didn't know he'd passed. Nuts.
