We headed out to Painless Ric's, and it took a while before we got going, because Ric had discovered that his credit card machine was not sending all the charges properly, and he hadn't been paid for at least a couple THOUSAND bucks worth of stuff...so he was on the phone with the credit card people. Luckily, it's getting straightened out. Once we got going, though, he was in good spirits. I gotta say, he has an excellent shop, and does great work. Pix of the event can be found here.
It seemed to be the day for people to find me. 12:45 last night, the phone rings. Now, anyone calling that late is prolly either a wrong number or bad news, so we were concerned, but it turned out to be my spirit-brother Merddynn...wow, talk about a voice outta nowhere. He had been talking to discordian, and got my new number, so it was great to hear from him...especially since it was his birthday. I dunno what it is about he and I, we clicked long ago on some weird deep level. I miss him. Still, we talk a few times a year, and it alweays seems to be that if one of us stops and thinks about the other one for some reason, they call later that day...weird!
