Where do you hound-dogs live?
« on: October 08, 2007, 02:31:54 PM »
Just curious. Wondering where you all come from. Just the City would work, no need for phone numbers and street addresses. If you are on the lam from law enforcment, please ignore this posting. I hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, a little town called Redwood City. It's claim to fame written on a big sign on the main drag, Best weather by Government Tests Local University, Stanford (just beat #1 SC in football this weekend) Best Guitar Store in area.....Gryphon Stringed Instruments, purveyor of very fine instruments. It will be interesting to see how far and wide this forum spreads.....Thanks

I'm from about 30 miles SW of Houston, TX (Rosenberg).  We have probably the worst weather by government tests--the air is so toxic down here that allergists cannot keep up with all the respiratory diseases/conditions.  Our sports teams seldom beat anyone at anything (and if they do, it's a mistake).  Best guitar store in the area--I wouldn't know, but I sure wouldn't recommend Rockin' Robin Guitars.  They had my Dot for 3 months for a job that they said would take only a couple of weeks.  We do have some shops that sell fine instruments (Gibson, Seagull, Martin, Washburn, etc.), but from now on when I need a repair I'll contact one of the local independent luthiers.  

As for being on the lam from law enforcement, not that I know of, but anything is possible, I guess [:I] (especially considering my checkered past, but I thought I had satisfied all those damn requirements, honest, officer, I did!!).

WOW, way to go Stanford, I've been waiting for someone to come along and knock USC off of their throne!  Now I just hope it sends them into a tailspin, it's Oregon's turn!  Course the Ducks kinda' stink up the field too and I'm always disappointed, they start the season off great then they blow it!

I was born in the redwoods, Crescent City, CA.   I love northern California, but I've been in Oregon most of my life.  I live in a town called Nehalem, it's an Indian word meaning: The Place Where The People Live!

Origionally from Pittburgh, PA.   Spent a few years in the high desert in central Cali, a few in DC, and the last 8 in Atlanta.  

Not on the run from the law...

We have alot of chain stores around here so all the music stores kinda look alike.   Oh well....

I had an idea that it could be fun to have a map with the everyone location on it.
A bit of research led me to frappr.com and I have created a map called Washies:
http://www.frappr.com/?a=constellation_map&mapid=137440100955
I think it should be possible for everyone to add a place marker without further need for login or anything. Try it out..  [:)]

Was raised in NW & Central PA (with a few years in the late 60s in DE).  Hey Scott, we used to travel to DeFiori's in Cleveland to buy our gear!  Either there, or at Hollywood Music in Pittsburgh.  I'm probably dating myself now.  [:I]  But now I'm in NJ, about 20 miles SSE of Philly.

I lived in St. Johns, Newfoundland for 2 years as a young child, age 2 to 4--my dad was in the Air Force up there, helping establish NORAD.  All I remember was the incredible cold in the winter.  Oh, yea--all the houses in St. Johns had doors on the second floor.  No porch, no stairs, just a door.  I couldn't figure out why, didn't ask till about 10 years ago, when my mom told me it was so people could get out of the house in the winter when the snow storms hit.  Seems the snow gets so deep people can't get out of the doors on the ground floor.  Blueberries grew wild along almost all of the roads.  During the winter the locals made a road across the entrance to St. Johns Bay--it cut about 40 miles off the trip between points at the entrance of the bay by eliminating the need to drive all the way around the bay.

Guess I remember more than I realized.  It was absolutely beautiful in the spring and summer!!

Don't ask what I ate for lunch, though.  Alzheimers might be setting in [:0] ????
