    Hey all,

    I finally got to meet fellow zoomie Jon P., along with his beautiful wife and daughter (and friggin' dinosaur-sized dog). :eek: They were gracious enough to allow me into their home in San Antonio for brats and beers, and I had a wonderful time (his daughter even drew a chalk greeting card on the patio, which chokes me up just thinking about it). We got to trade war stories, and Jon played just enough of his "totally unmixed" big band stuff to convince me to quit bass playing altogether. :spit: ;) He SMOKES, and for a guy who (allegedly) ;) has been playing upright only three years, he's insane. You taxpayers are definitely getting your money's worth outta this guy.

    Thanks to you and yours for taking me in, Jon. Folks like the Pacman Clan are what it's all about. :cool:

    Yeah, no kidding. Homey's been putting in some serious time in the shed, that's for sure. I've already told him he's not allowed to ever move to Louisville.

    LMAO. Now that I think of it, he did say he was a master at Pro Tools. ;)

    And in keeping with the fine AF tradition of "F*** your buddy"...

    You should see his collection of pedals. :p

    Oh, that hurts! Lump, I told you I've got to send that back! (Along with his wedding present - we here at Chez Packard aren't the best mailers...)

    By the way, thanks for the wine! We didn't even notice it untill after you'd left. Very kind gesture (and Blackstone is one of our favorites), you're welcome here anytime. And if you move to San Antone, you can have those lessons....

    It was great meeting you - come back anytime.

    The same goes for any of my other fellow TBers - if you're in San Antonio, give me a call! mi casa, and all.

    Yes - I was just listening to "invention in D Minor" from the DB sampler MP3 and the bass has a great acoustic tone and a really nice feel - wonderful playing....

    But what really suprised me is that I can't imagine the British Armed Forces doing anything so COOL!! ;)

    The Brits I've worked with (not musicians) have definitely been cool enough--I doubt they'd be SOBER enough though. ;)

    when i had the chance to hang with Pac at a local Starbucks for about an hour, i had a blast, he's good people!


    if i wasn't so dam anal about raising my baby Rottie (i just want to stay home as much as possible - his bladder is still weak), i'm sure i'd be drinking a few beers with him.


  11. Brits? You mean Irish! :smug: :p

    :bag: :ninja:
