    I know. That is just crazy. On top of that, I heard a rumor that you hate, no, totally despise waiting. :rflmao:

    Not to stray too far off topic, but I remember the day I broke into my piggy bank and took out a handful of 1920's silver dollars. Spent them on a squirtgun that my Dad summarily broke over his knee and hung on my wall.

    LOL
    See you and me are alike and so are our Dads, mine would do that very thing and I can see it vividly.

    I remember one time, you know those adds 10, 8 track taps for a penny? Well I had the penny...:D

    Fast forwards to when the bills started coming in...
    Anyway he made me pack up all the tapes, oh and it came with a really cool photo book on Led Zeppelin. Well I really didn't pack up all the tapes, I put blank tapes in the factory cases, and that book had so many holes he must has saved a bunch on shipping.

    Well, after a very busy Christmas Eve and Christmas, I opened my Secret Santa gift - a very nice pair of Direct-to-Disc recordings of Henry Gray and Pinetop Perkins, both on APO Quality Record Pressings. Plus a nice Christmas card of my favorites Snoopy and Woodstock. Can't wait to get them on the turntable (the records, not Snoopy and Woodstock).

    Thanks a bunch Santa Grumpy!

    Cool records! I have all the early issues from the APO Blue Heaven studio series. Your Secret Santa, (who is not Grumpy, btw) has good taste in music.

    Reading your post has me digging out my copies, to play, this morning. Enjoy!

    Hmm, his was the return address, of course, they could have been ordered from Grumpy acting as the Elf middleman. Whomever it was, its a very nice gift.

    Now I started looking at the new repressings of many classic record albums at Acoustical Sounds. The Verve re-issues really have my eye and pocketbook.

    It probably wasn't for you. Is it the Swimsuit edition?

    Opened mine yesterday. My SS did some research as I received a jazz album by Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh and a blues album by Little Walter! Sweet, just what I needed to help build my fledgling album collection. Thanks Secret Santa and thanks Ernie for organizing this!

    I never got mine-But I've been an EXTREMELY Nasty Bastard this year, far exceeding my Normal amount of muleheadedness, & downright Contrariness. One thing that HAS bothered me, I got $50 from the credit union we use, drove STRAIGHT HOME, didn't stop ANYWHERE, & when I got home, the $50 was NOWHERE to be found. I even tore LA's car apart looking for it, no soap.... WHERE DO THNGS GO When they GET Lost like that ? I'd give my Left you-know-What to be able to find that wondrous place..
