I'm a "probably" right now - will know better by this weekend.

I do, however, have an idea. Can we get our hands on a T Bondo original and all play it together in his honor?

I live in Highland Beach, between Delray Beach and Boca Raton. Would love to attend. Going to Nashville just before Christmas so this might be perfect.

I lived there and it snowed a couple years back. Course, it can't stick to sand..

And I'm good on an Agent Bond original, as long as it has only 3 chords...


Not to dwell, but the "Ricks" event was more of a wake, a great celebration of a great life. Can we repeat? I certainly hope so.

I just was IMing with Keith (DickensDad) on FB to see if he had any news about a memorial service for our mate Tom. This is what he told me:

Hey Sharky - Vicki said they were going to do something in a couple weeks (Tom is being Cremated) - I'll let you know what's up for sure as things get worked out.

I will post any & all details about this that I get from either Keith or Miss Vicki here as soon as I know something more solid (location, time, etc.). Stay tuned & prayerful for our dear friends til then.

Blessings

Below is a video of one of Tom's songs that he played often at our get togethers. It's called "He's Acting". Maybe we can play it on the 12/15 get together! PM me with your email address and I'll send the lyrics and chords to you.

OOPS! Sorry - been trading rockabilly links with friends this morning. My mistake - but I fixed it and the correct link is above.

I think Tom's laughing at me right now.

Default 12/4- I just talked to Miss Vicki!

Hello

Miss Vicki will, regretably, be unable to attend the FL AGF 12/15 gathering in the Grove folks There is a dedication for Tom on the 10th fairway @ the Savannah Trails country club. They are planting a tree in his honor. How cool?!!!! Both Aaron and Jesse will be traveling down for the weekend as well.

On a related note- I'm happy to report that Miss V sounded great, and that there will be a memorial church service for Tom on his birthday, Feb. 10th, in Merritt Island (or there abouts). I will find out the exact location of the church and post it soon. Stay tuned & prayerful my friends.

Blessings

Maybe I'm missing it, but has anyone posted the where and what time for the 15th? I'm volunteering for the animal rescue agency where we got our little pooch, but that starts at 10 AM and I can fly the coop by noon at the latest since there are a ton of other people wanting to help too.

Yesterday, I had 7 more extractions and today I get impressions to be fitted for the dentures, but by the 15th, it's hard to say whether I'll have a mouth to use for singing or food, but I'll visit if I can.

The cool thing is, the stitches in my back from the cancer removal get taken out on the 13th, so it'll be a super weekend to celebrate something.

Yikes, Dennis with all those teeth out does that mean you'll bring a banjo?
Cliff, we still on, need some confirmation.
