    Thanks, brother! That means a lot!

    And I'll let you know when I get to town. I can crash on your couch, right? ;)

    For a minute, we do have a guestroom, but Mrs. Roy may have a limited tolerance for long term house guests. :)

    +1. Even though I finally had it up to here with drug dealers etc. (I gigged in Austin, TX where you just had to tolerate that, at least back in the 80's), I got a lot out of actually gigging on stage until I quit.

    I even tried to play at a local jam about a year ago, but was helpless because of hearing problems and was hurried off the stage after 2 songs (nothing like a deef musician to turn the audience off!).

    I could play small combos I bet where the volume is low enough for me to be able to hear and, if an opportunity came up, I'd probably go ahead and do it.

    But I did all that playing without being able to read. I'm obviously not advocating that but it is doable with Rock or C&W gigs. If I wanted to be a professional, there's no way I'd even attempt it without being able to read somewhat.
