Well, this could be a reacquaintance for some of us...and for others a warm hello. Just found out about this place on FB from here I am.

Was an active member of the other place (Flyerfanx - Jim) and due to health reasons bailed...sold everything....but my how things change. The last bass I sold was my DPLE Jazz...with the stipulation that it be sold back to me for the same price if it was ever on the market again. Got the call a month ago, got the bass back, and it still looks like the day I bought it new. I also got my old Hughes Kettner amp back from my friend...his son stopped playing. So I'm basically starting over but wha the heck...its a new day.

So what's changed - still married, still in IT although working for a big utility now, have 3 grandkids and another on the way. Beer snob, food snob, bourbon snob, and spend my spare time chasing the other bass (largemouth and smallmouth). Enjoying every day!

So a big hello from South Jersey and I look forward to getting back in the swing of things
