    Hope you're all well and the holidays have been good.

    After 14 years at the same company I took a new a new job in late September. Well, it's consumed my every waking moment since. I haven't been this busy in years. I've had ZERO time for anything but work until like this weekend. I'm sure it's gonna pick right back up come 1/3/2019 too.

    No new guitar gear for me, in fact I sold one a while back and might put 2 more up. No time for it. I brought one of my Les Pauls to work and it's just sat in the case since. The only musical thing I've done in months is record a Beatles cover for my wife's birthday back in October. Maybe someday ...

    Anyway, I'm still alive and just wanted to say "hey!".

    Peace,
    RLP

    Good to see your return! I'd been wondering if you had health issues or something. :)

    Welcome back - cool cover! Refreshing that it isn't one that has been covered a lot.

    And I was just wonder ing the other day what had happened to you. Glad to see you are doing OK and we don't need to send out the AGF Search Party, which usually just devolves into talking about gear and no one gets found.

    You've been missed man. I was asking around about you through inside channels, so I knew you were alive and kicking. But it ain't the same here without you.

    Hurry up so you stop hurrying up and hang out here more, or something like that. :)

    I was hired as COO and almost completely rebuilt this company in 90 days. It's been a whirlwind of firing and hiring. I'm dying to have some of my time and life back. Hopefully soon.

    Left The Beatles' home for some Krispy Kremes...
    Welcome back and that was a fantastic cover of my favourite Beatles song. Since I'm from literally down the road from John (went to school on Penny Lane, dated a girl from Strawberry Fields, played The Cavern, etc) and miss Liverpool a hell of a lot, that really hit home (no pun intended). Hope 2019 is good to you and gives you some breathing space (y)

    Wow. And in the bizarro world my kids company just hired a new coo a few months ago and she took a very successful midsized tech company and ran it into the ground. Cant afford hardware. Good people being played off. Other key players jumping ship before the crash. My kid says his boss was literally crying when she thought he was leaving. He didn't have the heart to tell her he resents the company for grinding him up and letting this idiot destroy the company and now he wants to go back to school.
    Maybe @RedLesPaul can swoop in and save my kids co next
