A good time is when a nice looking woman smiles at you and your wife is looking away!

I've retired from racing now. Apart from the one tab reducing the ability of the blood to clot, which is an important consideration for a crasher, the beta blockers reduce the effects of adrenalin and I no longer get the hit from anything I do that I used to. I tried a rental kart race, hard work, uncomfortable and no sense of the banzai of old, so I pulled in before the end.

This means I have 4 weekends free next year, and the weeks either side of them, so me and my wife can go where we want, when we want. Might even be near Dundee on the free blues festival weekend.......

Good story & congrats! It's sooooo hard to do at this stinkin' age ...

I was 252 last year. I always wanted an SG but every time I put one on the fu--ing belly pushed them out to a stupid angle making it uncomfortable to play. I took it upon myself to start losin' the weight and like you, got down to 220. That 32 lb loss flattened out the belly and guess what ??? ... I bought me my SG :D . Now, it's time to keep goin' ... my target is 190lbs. I expect to hit it by New Years.
Whole reason is ... I'm tired of the 50 -70 year old groupies ... gotta get me some of that young 45 year old stuff :lol:

Yuppp ... that aging crap .. SURGERIES !@#$%*^%$##$!!! :!:
You got yer back done ... I had a total knee replacement. That pretty much effectively killed a lifetime of running around on stage like a horny jackass. Now, I just make funny faces like all them guitar guys who look like they're hittin' nirvana or poppin' a nut or somethin' :lol: What's with that face stuff anyways??? I've been in the biz for over 40 years and don't much see bassists or keyboardists or horn guys do it ... drummers got a pass ... they gotta look like their beatin' hell outta everything.

Hey ..that'd make a hilarious section. Let's see who, as guitar guys, can make the best player's face ... :lol:

hey! team!!!! hope everyone is alive and kickin,and survived the holidays!! I had a super holiday with all the Clan, 4 sons 3 daughter in laws 2 daughters 2 son-in laws 6 grandsons 7 dogs and a cat!! a house full for sure for 2 weeks!! I don't think there was a crumb left in the fridge!

I have been hosting a biweekly Jam in my Barn and have found a couple good players however mostly just for fun. something to do while I recover from the back surgery and physical therapy, since the accident is seems it started a chain of events, 2 weeks before Christmas The VA doctor ordered a Stress test,and the week before xmas, they called me and wanted me in Jackson Ms the next day, scared the crap outta me, They said the test showed I had suffered a Heart Attack within the last year, So they did a Caterazation and found a Blockage which they cleared and placed a stent!! WOW!! that will wake ya up,

601, glad your blockage was rectifiable with a stent! That beats the hell out of having your chest cracked.

601 my Friend, I had my neck done in 97 or there 'bouts! Compliments of being thrown off too many bulls in my younger years. Initially thought I had tennis elbow, but turned out my head was little attached by a thread. Made all the difference in the world after I had it fused and a plate screw to stabilize everything. It was sort of like what I think wood workers such as yourself call a scab joint type repair. If it's causing neurological issues, get it tended to Bro.
