Thanks for the "welcome back" everyone
Your support and encouragement for everyone was another thing I missed here.
The FSOTM thread is a great addition.
Basically I don't play for anyone - ever but that is a pretty comfortable place to contribute and share. Very cool.
I did join in a couple Skype strums with Topdown and a couple others but that's about it. I'll definitely do the FSOTM thing again, cherry picking the songs I expect -Jack & Dianne was beyond my reach but then again, a little stretch now and then ain't a bad thing....
Life is great, Amy. My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer when I went AWOL here a couple years ago. We quit our jobs and just kinda went to ground. And it's been a great couple years - she's doing fine. Perpetual monthly chemo is a bit of a bother but it's local and not beating her up much at all. So, not quite the early retirement plan I'd recommend but we're having a ball.
