So the meet and greet was really cool I got the band to sign a shirt I bought for KU to him... :D

The person who was running the meet and greet experience was Todd's wife a very nice lady who shared several stories with us which was extremely interesting and humorous... :o

Towards the end of the introduction she said we will be unable to do the video because the venue lacked the infrastructure to mount the equipment, this statement resulted in an audible gasp from the attendee's and whispers about that being the "whole thing" or one of the main reasons they were in for this package...I know nothing about this detail and KU will need to explain this... :?

Also because the site lacked said infrastructure the video/LED screen was also out which Todd mentioned upfront and apologized for, someone made a logistical error... :shock:

The music was awesome straight up band in front of a curtain and it was great, H-dog was amazed at Todd's guitar skills (he shredded all night) and said he thought he was better than Steve Via... :shock:

Kasim was amazing on vocals and killed on bass, I would venture to call it lead bass... :idea:

Willie Wilcox is just an incredibly strong drummer and takes the beat to a thundering level... 8)

Gil has mad skills and reproduced most of the keyboard sections faithfully, while occasionally doing his thing and it was all good... :!:

I asked if they would sign KU's shirt to him and Todd had Willie put the "To Dean" on the shirt, when Gil signed I said "we have your rookie card" which elicited a laugh from the band lead by Todd and all within ear shot... :lol:

I took a moment to tell Todd that I had to thank him, he asked "for what?" I told him I had my first date with my wife of 35 years who passed four years ago on May 22 1978 at the Roxy (he knew the date he began to smile widely as I said it) which was 40 years ago two weeks ago and it was the Back to The Bars show, he said "cool", I said "you sealed the deal for me because she was out of my league"...and he said "now that's awesome, I like hearing stories like that"... 8)

We all shock hands, I thanked them for everything...they are all great, straight shooting, nice men...a very good experience, thank you so much KU... :!:

Thanks Plook for pinch hitting for me. I’m glad you were able to have that interaction with the band and share that story with Todd about you and Terri. I would have been tongue tied.

I know nothing about the video option with the meet and greet and wasn’t expecting anything. Glad you had a great time. Hopefully they do it again and I’ll be there. I’m about ready to share why I couldn’t be there (some bad mixed with some good).

Note: See “Diseases of the forum” thread.

Do you just want to get them so we can all sit together and I’ll reimburse you?

We should also jump on that hotel that’s within walking distance.

Played golf yesterday and had an extraordinary round, after a 43 on the front that included 4 pars and 3 double bogeys I started the back chipping in for birdie from about 40 yards out... :o

The next hole a par 3 my ball hit the pin on my tee shot and I made par... :shock:

I bogeyed 12 a tricky short par 4, pared 13 a challenging par five, put my ball on the green on 14 but 3 putted from at least 60 feet... :x

15 a long par five I chipped in for birdie again from the fringe two birdies amazing... :shock:

So I am even on the back coming into 16 which I was on in 2 but another long slippery put led to a 3 putt and another bogey... :oops:

Bogeyed 17 a very long par 4 with a massive oak tree guarding the approach to the green... :arrow:

So all I have to do is bogey 18 and I will break 40 on the back and have a round like I used to before my neck injury, haven't played this good in years, unfortunately I folded up like a cheap lawn chair on 18... :evil:

I was lucky to get out of it with a triple bogey as I had to sink a 20 foot right to left slider to get that, ended up with an 84 which I haven't shot since I was hurt over 3 years ago...that felt good... :!:

You should go see somebody. I assume this has been brought on by the breakdown of your relationship and this coming on the heels of Terri’s passing just four years ago. You owe it to yourself and your family and friends to take care of yourself by getting some professional help. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health if not more so.
