Hi there! yea, it is me. hadnt been on in a long time. My job required me to work sometimes 16 hour days... plus life issues.... just didnt get on the computer. recently took another position in management with a fixed schedule, helping me to get some time for myself. Not playing anymore, but hoping that changes soon. my last show was a year ago. I have a couple things in the works, but just had a setback, spending 5 days in the hospital trying to pass a half inch sized kidney stone. OUCH! too much internal damage... they did a stint, and now have to heal before going back to break it up. I remember you well. we had some great chats. I stay away from the political/religious forums, and dont use topix much anymore... same fighting, different thread. cant take it anymore. life is hard on us and we need uplifting experiences,, not arguing. take care buddy, and keep in touch. please.<quoted text>Hey Jim, are you the same Jim that i use to chat with a few years ago on the christen topic? you were in a band? wow! it has been a long time. Do you remember me? I have a cat story too. but i will share it later. Hope you are the same guy. Seems you are. If not, opps. sorry.I think you just moved on a farm???
