As usual, it was a fun, memorable time.  It's always great to see the familiar and a few unfamiliar faces.  Ed, Helen and Sid provide the perfect venue to lay back and let it happen, and I'm grateful for their hospitality.

Thanks so much to everyone for pitching in and being there.  I'm still grinning even though I'm getting ready for work.

The Hornfest was a fitting kickoff for the "Summer of Rob"! 

Drive on, Robert.   Grin

...Henry better be waiting to usher me into the compound.

Seeya all soon.

Rob   

Hey Rob,

Sorry I can't do it, but as a substitute, I've arranged to have the red carpet rolled out and covered with rose petals...











Those guys at the Leesville Lodge are very accommodating.   Grin

Thanks to this being Mother's Day weekend, it looks like I'll be there on Saturday.  I'd like to come earlier, but I can't this year.   Sad

I have the stereo White Album and Magical Mystery Tour and both are very nice as compared to previous cd's. 

I'm holding out for the remastered vinyl they keep promising to release.   Smiley

I'm coming. Its my turn to drive this year Cheerwino. I will bring some weird audio stuff, if Ed will let me Wink Have you guys heard speakers with leather surrounds before? These old 12" Magnavox divers have been modified with leather surrounds and spiders. Let me know if you would like to hear them.

...and the Luddite 2 10 amp, and the 24/96 LightSabre DAC.

I'd like to see the leather surrounds, and hear the story behind them.   Cool

Hey Randy, I like what you did with the doubling of the wood frame.  The proportions are very nice.   Smiley

homey... what Randy said.  I hope you can make it.

Yep, a couple of drywall screws through the shingles and into the decking should be good for 10-15 mph winds.  Nice work.   Cheesy

I think the carbon footprint talk is preparation for the carbon tax shove.  My throat still hurts from the healthcare bill.   Grin

...Sure it's coming but I think the ones in Henry's pic were probably (a guess, ok) due to "something" other than heat and line voltage. Tell us Henry!...

I recently read a blurb about the dreaded "capacitor plague" that infected the computer industry... and I stole that photo from Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

That's what I immediately thought of when Ed reminded me of his old "egg cooker" (yes, he threatened to make breakfast on it).  That thing was a hottie for sure.   Cool

I left mine on 24/7 for over a year, only cutting it off to move it or try something out. Far as I know it's still cranking out the tunes, bless it's heart.
Ed

Boomski.   Shocked

Hey Randy, less than two months to go.   Grin

Before you know it, we'll be hanging out in the sauna room basking in the light of the tube.

There is a new debate in my home state.  Some parties want to publish the names and addresses of all Illinois gun owners... 

Great, own a gun and be treated like a sex offender.   Roll Eyes
