Strong sense of community. I have lived in larger towns.

i get that and it's probably a good thing. i’ve always preferred being in a large city where i can get lost in the crowd anytime that i wanted. 

but, having a close knit group of friends sounds like a positive in one’s life. 

i definitely wouldn’t advise anyone go my route in life ... i know a LOT of people, but few do i know very close.

No sound. Display shows the machine is registering notes. Oh... volume is at 00.  Bump it up... still nothing. Check the mixer... channel is on. Moved the slide pot for volumes again. Scratchy noise.Deoxit to the rescue

one day, i grabbed a guitar turned on the amp and started to play ... no sound. I went over that amp several times ... nothing. The volume knob on the guitar ... nothing. I was at the point of admitting that i needed a new amp, although this VOX amp hasn’t been used much.  Then i realized that i’d plugged the cord into the amp, but not into the guitar.  So, plugging it in solved the problem.  I should be some sort of professor.

@BigStewMan Sorry i ain't been following your every movement. Not in Bend anymore? Where y'at?

i get run outta town a lot ... errrr, i mean i move a lot.   I’m close to Portland now.  Kinda ready to move on already, but moving is too much of a hassle so i’ll stick around another year at least.

That's why I live in the country, so they can't run me out of town.

Haha....I've done that before. I recently bought a Marshall 40 watt tube guitar amp. I always wanted a Vox AC30 (classic British sound) I came across a deal on the Marshall. It does sound good.

yeah, i have a VOX tube amp; but sadly it’s not the AC30. There are a few others that i want.  Divided by 13 and Fender Vaporizer and Tone King are a few that i want to check out.

Going to be a fun day.  60 degrees and sunny.  Pig Picking, shooting, a few beers by the Cape Fear River with 50 or so high school chums (all guys).  Taking a 9mm,  AR-15, and a new .22 single six Wrangler.  A 45 minute ride into the boonies.

Report to come..........

Sounds like a blast!  What 9mm do you prefer?

Not really a preference but I have a Canik TP-9V2.  Made in Turkey by a company that supplies the UN with firearms.  Shoots well, never a misfire, and a double stack mag and one in chamber for 19 rounds.  Several reviews on YouTube.

Eh, I've fired enough Military weapons in my life so keeping my old Match grade Colt 45 and an old military M 17 38.  I've graduated I think so moving on.  Old guys are verrrrrry sneaky yanno.  :)

  • Made it home unscathed.  Perfect weather, food, and camaraderie.  Shot up some ammo but the fun was letting our blind member shoot.  First my Ruger .22, then the 9mm, and finally the AR-15.  Turned him in the right direction, gave verbal right or left, higher or lower and let him blast away.  He was very appreciative. 
  • Also saw a flock of wild turkeys as we were arriving......must have 10-12.  Fun to watch though I don't hunt.
  • PS......don't where the dots at the beginning of the sentence are originating.
