  1. Happy day to a piece of the foundation of Talkbass, and an ace player. :hyper:
    I can still hear your NS in Le Bar Bat. Soooo good. :cool:
    It's been too long, buddy, we have to meet up again sometime.

    All the best. ;)

    Wow...I'm all verklempt...

    :)

    Mike, thanks man, really. I truly enjoyed hangin' with you that night, had a great time. I owe you SEVERAL beers next time!!! You rock man!

    :bassist:

    I'm not old Brendan, you're just a punkazz snot-nosed brat. Perspective, man, perspective.

    :spit:

    Heavy, a bidet??? Who put the drinking fountain in my bathroom????

    :confused:

    ...my birthday plans? I'm leaving work at 7 tonight, driving north on I-95 until I can't drive any further (probably about Charleston-ish), getting up early tomorrow, driving to Greensboro, NC to visit Keith Roscoe, have lunch and a bit of a shop tour - and just hang with him, 'cuz he's cool - then, on to Washington, DC to visit with some friends (jammadave, in particular!), paw basses, look at airplanes (hitting the new Smithsonian Air & Space annex at Dulles Friday, w00t!), and just generally goofing off!

    So, I won't be 'round much after this morning...but hey, thanks guys, it's good to be a part of the family here!

    :D
     
  6. Happy birthday to a GREAT person!! This place is better because of you.

    Happy Birthday Bro. You are one of the coolest guys here, takes alot of abdominal fortitude to bounce back from the hell you went through. Much respect and many props. I am blessed to call you friend.


    Here's to you Bro.

  18. Happy Birthday, Gard.

    Thanks again for your help in setting me up with my NSD-CRM5 EUB and F Bass BN5.

    Like others have said, Gard is a class act, so buy your gear from him... :)
