To all those who helped me a few months ago with a serious issue I was dealing with.

    Well as many of you know a few months back I was at the end of my rope, gave up all hope, and tried something very very stupid. I again want to thank everyone for all their support, phone #'s, and willingness to help. Especially, to Gard and Jay. You two helped out more than you know.

    Well now its some time later and my life has improved 100 fold. I have a job. Its not the best in the world, I raise funds for the local firefighters and paramedics here in my county. It makes me feel good helping these guys/gals out and the pay is 1/2 way decent. Downside, if I don't sell I'll get fired, but I'm not worried about that.

    My financial situation has improved due to said job. I now have a credit card, am out of the red in my bank account, and pretty much cought up on most of my bills. I even finally have a cell phone!

    As far as my education goes, I failed algebra, but, still made the colleges President's Honors List. So I have a gpa of at least 3.5 or higher. So I'm pretty stoked about that. Its a first for me!

    I'm also have a bass on layaway. Its not the best in the world, but at least it'll be something for me to play. Its an Ibanenz SR506. Best guesstimate on the year is 1994. Despite it not being the Roscoe and Cirrus I want, I'm still pretty excited because I have no bass, amp, or any gear of my own anymore. So I'll soon have a decent bass in my hands again.

    Even got a pretty fine lookin woman who seems to care about me a great deal.

    I can't believe how much better my life has turned around in only a few months time.

    Again, Gard, Jay, Ray, Pacman, Brad, BlackBird, Dr Mike, you ALL know who you are and there's way to many names to list, thank you again.

    Decades ago we had a Guitarist in the band who tried something stupid and almost succeeded. Through us all for a loop. He survived and recovered. He is doing well.

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck,
