Re: Groped by women when performing?

Yep, groped once, on a St. Pat's night bar hop
late 1980's. (The 'toasted' gal on the barstool
appeared to be re-living the 70's... and also the
night before.)

Photo's? Not that I know...

Re: Old pipes/goose restoration

Re: BDF AOH to log off?

That 'Remember Me' box gets checked,

doesn't... that's a recent thing over the

Re: Why the bidding on these pipes?

So far, the seller has been quite up front with
what's on offer - and the bids are right in line
with other 'mideast bargains'.

Please don't scream, just pray some newbie
doesn't quit...

and I expect many or most here have seen it,

Re: Selbie inverted bass ; update

That joint gets a LOT of stress. It's where we tune,

As you approach the cutoff, and attempt to empty
your bag, the weight of your drones presses into
the collapsing bag, partially maintaining pressure,
so your reeds continue to sound.
