      Anyone have a line on a Bird that desperately wants a refin? No luck on finding a body. Maybe I'll just buy another Epi and refin it.

      Taking a short break before writing Dragon Lord Chronicles book 4. Arguing with myself over buying a 2nd Thunderbird.

    Trombone from 6th through 12 grade, and for a couple of years around age 30. Now I occasionally make cow noises on it.
    Guitar player for years, with occasional songs on bass live. Realized I was never going to be a great guitar player. Switched to percussion and bass. Now mainly bass. After a few years, I'm better on bass than I ever was on guitar. I'm down with that.
    Day gig is a geek thing. I write a lot, especially fiction, lots of geek stuff in the past. Several published books.
    Married 40+ years to an amazing woman. Two bio-kids, and too many to count who call us mom & dad. A few grands. No great grands AFAIK.
    I miss motorcycling, but want to get everything paid off before getting another.
    I plan to live to at least 120.
    I love Texas (we live central; I miss the desert), but I could live on a nice beach.
