Most things are pretty simple until someone complicates it....

OM45GE - Posted - 01/21/2012:  17:20:27



Too true

DeanT - Posted - 01/21/2012:  17:26:34


Besides... I got dogs to care for, they count on me :)

OM45GE - Posted - 01/21/2012:  17:27:42



You just got another one didn't you?

DeanT - Posted - 01/21/2012:  17:32:29


Yep, new foster makes four

OM45GE - Posted - 01/21/2012:  17:55:53



I can barely keep up with one.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 01/22/2012:  17:21:53


I've read something similar to your approach, Dean. Using the "I will not ______ today" concept. I will not smoke today. I will not drink today. I will not debt today. Makes it easier to think about than forever.

Unfortunately my personality is more along the lines of "well, hell, if I might do it tomorrow I might as well do it today and just get it out of the way."

I don't have a lot of willpower.

I've had times when it was one minute at a time.

DeanT - Posted - 01/23/2012:  07:22:26


Me too... like the day I stopped smoking...

OM45GE - Posted - 01/23/2012:  09:54:28



I hear you.

DeanT - Posted - 01/23/2012:  10:24:26


four big dogs in my little house sure makes things cozy!

dat - Posted - 01/23/2012:  10:34:21



I've never been accused of being a quitter.  I still drink a beer every once in a while, I still will drink a glass of whiskey every now and then, but no where like I used to.   I used to drink one of the big jugs of Jim beam with the handle on it and two 30 packs of beer on over a weekend, then a couple of 30 packs during the week.  I'm surprised my bride put up with me, several times she almost didn't.  I missed out on a lot with the kids during those years.  I haven't quit, but I've had a bottle of makers mark now for over a year and it isn't empty yet.  when I buy beer it will last a great long time too.    I guess I have quit snuff though

DeanT - Posted - 01/23/2012:  18:39:31


I remember the Jim Beam jugs with the finger ring...

OM45GE - Posted - 01/24/2012:  04:34:15



They're probably collectibles now.

dat - Posted - 01/24/2012:  05:44:33



Kinda like the 1964 Jim Beam bottle

DeanT - Posted - 01/24/2012:  07:31:47


I threw a lot of them away... more than I can remember :)

dat - Posted - 01/24/2012:  09:23:31



HOW GOOD WAS YOUR MEMORY AT THE TIME?

DeanT - Posted - 01/24/2012:  11:05:08


I think I had alchohimers...

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 01/24/2012:  13:11:30


Hell my memory isn't all that great sometimes and I don't have any excuse. I'm not even blond!

dat - Posted - 01/24/2012:  13:24:16



Well, you are about 40 now, give or take a little.  that comes with time, even though my memory wasn't very good 20 years ago

OM45GE - Posted - 01/25/2012:  04:21:13



They say the memory is the second thing you lose as you get older. I can't remember what the first is.

DeanT - Posted - 01/25/2012:  07:41:32


I can at least remember a few things at 50-something... I can't remember anything about my 20's....

dat - Posted - 01/25/2012:  08:53:30



my mid 20's through mid 30's were a blur

Is that you in the black suit?

dat - Posted - 01/25/2012:  12:02:05



Nope, just a picture that was sent to me in an e mail

DeanT - Posted - 01/25/2012:  18:58:35


I'm glad there wasn't digital photography back in my party days

OM45GE - Posted - 01/26/2012:  04:09:53



I shudder at the thought of my past being on film.

dat - Posted - 01/26/2012:  05:48:47



I had a couple of pictures turn up, but they brought me a laugh along with everybody else

DeanT - Posted - 01/26/2012:  07:25:00


Mind would probably land me in jail...

dat - Posted - 01/26/2012:  09:59:09



yep, mine too

OM45GE - Posted - 01/26/2012:  09:59:21



Me too. ...twenty seven eight-by-ten color glossy photographs with circles

and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each

one was to be used as evidence against us.

DeanT - Posted - 01/26/2012:  10:22:24


Oh my... I used to know that whole song....

OM45GE - Posted - 01/27/2012:  06:29:26



I did to. We played it if we had gig that wanted five sets.

DeanT - Posted - 01/27/2012:  07:25:51


That's a Loooong gig!

OM45GE - Posted - 01/27/2012:  10:23:03



After I got out of ROck and blues and started playing as 1/2 of an accoustic duet, we did a lot of bar gigs. They liked us to do four 45 minute sets. One of the Irish pubs we did regulary had us start at 8:00 and do five. If the crowd hadn't turned over for the midnight hour we did Alice's Restaurant and some long bluesey songs.

DeanT - Posted - 01/27/2012:  10:37:27


Our standard bar gigs are 9pm-1am ... 4 sets... I've never done a 5 setter!

OM45GE - Posted - 01/27/2012:  10:46:22



I don't play out much anymore since my partner moved two hours north. The really sad thing is that the live music scene is really slowing down outside of the city.

dat - Posted - 01/30/2012:  06:40:25



I never have played anything like that, there is a gathering spot in town that people get togeather on thursday nights and play, nothing fancy, just an old building in the park. I go there and pick sometimes. by the time I get off work and get there it is 6:30, then they shut it all down about 8 or 8:30.  I believe they get started around 5 or so. there are enough other folks there that by banjer doesn't stand out much

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2012:  08:59:19


Live music was almost killed around here by Kereokie and DJ's... but it seems to be making a come back the last couple years. We are getting lots of work

 Same here. We used to do a lot of weddings. My partner and I had several other musicians who we could call on to suit the gig. Now it's all DJ's.



I could probably keep busy if I was willing to travel more, but I'm not really happy being a one man show and I don't like being away from my 11 year old that much. It was different when I was single.

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2012:  12:10:09


I know I'm supposed to be retired... but playing music is too much fun. Hey, who is DeanT and what happened to 1four5? :^)

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2012:  12:51:17



Yeah, how did you do that?

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2012:  12:59:20


I had to beg :) Eric did it for me. I thought it was about time to go by my real name.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/30/2012:  16:25:08



I wanted to do the same thing but couldn't figure it out.. I'll probably just stick with what I've got.

DeanT - Posted - 01/30/2012:  17:04:28


Actually I didn't beg ... I just asked. And he did it no problem.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 01/30/2012:  17:34:01


I never really wanted anyone to know my real name.
