Ditto! :)

I looked around and couldn't spot your name. Last time I was here you were having some sort of health problems if I remember rightly (was it heart related?). So I rather wondered if ol' Smokindog Ken had ...well you know how it is when you get past a certain age... a few unexpectedly drop out of the band occasionally. Great to hear that you're still kicking on.

I'm still trying to emulate your home recording and playing skills, and still coming up short. But I'm improving. :wink:

Cheers,

Chris

Good to see you back here Chris. I too have been missing from here for far too long, and I think my dog plays my guitar more than I do (her tail taps the strings sometimes as she wanders past it looking for anything to eat). But I am hoping to rectify that from now on.

Great news about your son hope all works out well there for him.

Rik, you have been away for a while. I have been a staple here for the past 4 years and I'm not familiar with you. :lol:

I do keep trying, but unfortunately family, work etc all keep conspiring against me and just when I think "right now back to the guitar" something else crops up. Hopefully now I've turned the corner, the guitar has a brand new set of strings, all tuned up and ready to go. So if you read an advert from an American Bulldog who say's she's looking for a new home as she can't stand the noise anymore, you'll know where she comes from.

I used to share a bit of banter with Chris, and Vic used to chime in and help me out when Chris was getting the upper hand, us Brits like to stick together when it comes down to colonial bashing!! :shock: :shock:

Yeah, I'm becoming a bit like those guys who keep coming out of retirement for just one more comeback tour.. :wink:

Good to see you around here still Roy. I always enjoy the rather wicked sense of humour that characterises your posts. I hope that the grief with your ears has settled down a bit. I still wince thinking about it.

Hi again Rik. You're even more of a serial vanisher than I am. :) I hope to see you and the dog back here doing duets ASAP.

Cheers,

Chris

'Tis true Chris, I do try ( and my wife says that I'm incredibly trying :shock: ) but there just seems to be so much other stuff to do! Still like a good boomerang I'm back (for now)
