    hehe, i thought it would take a little more than that to make the schnitzenegger cry :D .

    paul, i think this is the only time i've seen anyone use the term "jerko" besides me and my brothers, what a cool man you must be.

    now put up some pics of this bass so i can "check her out".
     
  9. Please forgive me...I was just trying to be funny too.! I'm sorry it came off the wrong way...I love you and your splendid work:D

    ahhh, now you guys hug and make up:D ......paul a smiley goes a long way in letting people know you're joking.
    arnold, that comment made me laugh.
     
  11. Arnold and I have been PMing to beat the band. Glad handing like a Mother. As he said in a PM....It's awful easy to misunderstand when you're writing instead of talking face to face.
    Anyway, we've high fived and patted ass and all that good stuff and have come to the conclusion that we're both geniuses of the highest order!
    And, as I told Arnold, I don't waste my salty sense of humor on people don't care about.

    Paul - I'm assuming the bass is in Colorado, right? If it's still in your possession come June, I'd love to drop by and audition it - I'll be there for a week or so.

    Uh. And you live on a mountain...

    I see a sequel in the making.:cool:
     
  14. I dropped my camera....i'll post some shots when i get new one.....Stan, of course you're more than welcome to give it a shot if it's still around. Keep me posted date wise.
    This bass is a sweetheart!
    I hate doing this..makes me feel like a used car salesperson...ACK!
     
  15. And... the only catch is that you have to be a Mother******

    Arnold...i'm just kidding!
    It's great having you around to lighten things up Toad. :)

    Is there something for sale here or is this the new channel for 'comedy central'.

    Paul, it's great that you 'play' Bass because you would have never made it doing 'stand-up'... comedy that is..:D

    Do we have another math challenge here? The 18th century would be the 1700s. I think Paul is trying to say late 1800s to early 1900s, 19th to 20th century but we all know it takes more than one Bass player to do complicated math!
