    We don't always recognize when the sun is shining on us... when the good times are... when things are synched up and we are winning... shoot, too many times, I have thought, in those moments that I was behind or failing or missing something else. Having a lot of loss early has its benefits, you know it can happen and how awful it is, if we're lucky we learn then, to stop and mentally snapshot those moments and invest in them (in terms of remembrance)

    I watched the video twice and had an array of thoughts, but the prevailing one was, I hope Randy loved that moment and stored it versus 'just another gig' or 'dang I dropped a word'

    As I grow older (yay) I often note to myself, 'I might not ever do this thing again, so, enjoy it.' and I do.

    Glad you are taking steps to be with us longer Jakedog.... I want to hear your voice here for as long as I can hear it.

    Sorry about the loss of your friend, Jakedog.

    I liked his song.

    I quit on July 6th 2017, and I can say that even now the cravings have never fully gone away, but it is well worth it. I did the math of how much I spent each year, and realized that i would rather put that kind of money into guitars. I can't say that it was a good thing or not, but I was constantly "rewarding" myself for time without a cigarette with pedals and parts in the beginning.

    Whatever works, man. I bought myself a real nice Les Paul with what I didn’t spend on smokes this year. Which in turn allowed me to spend money on a real nice acoustic. It’s a domino effect.
