• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Morning lads. Another lazy day here. Hovering between cloudy/sunny and slightly warm/coolish. When it warms up a bit I see a rip on the motorcycling happening.

At my ripe age, I bought my first ever gaming console (PS4) so I could play COD with some of my buddies online. However, I also bought a driving game (Gran Turismo) and am liking that one a lot. Preparing for the downtime during my imminent chemo...going to be stretches of a few days every month where I expect to be couch locked. yeah, that’s my excuse!

Woke up late and had my usual 3 full mugs of coffee.

Later I took my black strat to a friend's for a complete setup after a string gauge change I had done a couple of weeks ago. We spent most of the day doing the major and minor tweaks while we drank Budweisers, all respecting the mandatory distancing and wearing masks but it was fun enough. He's a highly skilled tech and sets up a guitar milimetrically. I call his work perfection.

I am watching TFF die slowly, despite of everyone's wishes and efforts. The way I see it, the certificate issue is taking too long to be sorted out and the users who came here are afraid to come back, securitywise. The ones who didn't feel like coming to the LPF on the other hand don't post much and prefer to sit back and wait. That pretty much equals to leave it to die. To each his own. TFF ain't dying because of the lack of a certificate, it's dying because it doesn't get the attention it needs to keep on going, from its users, although we all love it.

Me, by now I think it's a lost cause. I'll probably stay in the LPF and see if the guys keep on meeting here. If not, I'll just keep in touch with the ones who are on Facebook. As George Harrison said, all things must pass, I guess.

It's me birthday. I woke early, smoked a joint, and played my fretless Jazz Bass--you're welcome neighbors.

I wrote a silly (hopefully, funny) poem for my dearly departed Mom for Mummy's Day.

I've been digging the remastered box set of The Who Sell Out. What a great and underappreciated album. Man o man.

Have a great day, and if your mother is still living and she's not an evil witch, tell her you love her today.

Happy Birthday, Willie!

Not much happening here in the deep South, either.

Mother's day went well and I'm looking forward to receiving my first Covid shot.
