    Actually, I'm staying with relatives. I'll be arriving on the 26th (gonna spend Xmas with my mother, since I was in Germany at the time last year) and I'll be leaving on the 10th.

    Oh, one more thing, can someone teach me to say grace? I feel I'll be expected to. Anything that I can memorize to recite before lunch or dinner. Thanks.

    cool. pm me when you're on your way, we can go to lunch or something.

    oh, and for grace, i used to use....

    "bless us oh lord for these, thy gifts, which we are about to receive from thy bounty through christ our lord. amen."

    i've found that that's a good, all purpose before-meal prayer for many denominations of christianity.

    yep, JT, that's a good catholic one, too :D I had to say that all the time growing up!
     
  4. Maybe we should drum up another get together to celebrate! :D

    Y'all please post the details if there's another get-together...even a small one. Maybe I can make this one...never wished to be gig-less before
     
  6. Are you touring with the EZ VGNS?:D

    There's usually a fair amount of music going on during the holidays. Let us know if you want to hook up and go see some. Are you originally from Atlanta, Big Wheel?

    Sounds good to me, maybe the Sunday after New Years? It's usually pretty dead that weekend (and people will have their Christmas loot to show off).

    Hey, Joe. Sorry, the "Female Answer to Spinal Tap" is temporarily on Hiatus.:D I'm not from Atlanta, but My father's side of the family lives there. The nucleus of it is in Atlanta and that's where we converge for family meetings and the like.

    Small request: If someone has the time, can I bum a ride to Galaxy music? I haven't been there since '92, when I got my ill-fated Music Man Sabre. With any luck, I'll have something to show off at the get-together (if it happens) besides Henderson, which I'm bringing with me.
     
  8. Not a problem. My holiday season doesn't look nearly as busy as last year, less than half the number of Christmas party gig$. I haven't been to Galaxy in several years myself (since they moved). You also need to see the bass room at at GC. :D
     
  9. Big Wheel, I'd be glad to get you to Galaxy. Dan Tyre (owner) is a friend and is always happy to see new folks. I live only about 8 minutes from there so it's an easy trek. Guaranteed that he'll have some basses in stock after the holidays. Last time I was in, there were only about 20 or 25 on the wall.

    This is our prayer for the table:

    Bless Oh Father, these thy gifts to our use and us to thy service and keep us ever mindful and responsive to the needs of others. Amen.

    The last part is probably the most important :)

    Here's one of my brother Tom's favorites:

    Eekimo bee bee bee bee bee bee beep,
    Eekimo bee bee bee bee bee bee beep,
    Eekimo bee bee bee bee bee bee beep,
    Eekimo bee bee bee bee bee bee beep.

    Amen.
