Rich Not In Tampa!!

Rich Not In Tampa was spotted on the coffeehouse circuit! He and his wife met SO and me for a morning brew. A special message is embedded in the photo for TromboneAl; Rich said that next time he’ll remember to keep up the tradition when meeting board members. We had a lot of laughs and the guys shared magic tricks. Afterwards SO showed me how to play the lottery which I haven’t done since it started here circa 1985. If Rich and his wife are lucky for us and we win, we’ll be able to retire; oh, never mind, we already did that. Hope you can encourage Rich Not In Tampa to tell all about their tour out here West of the Pecos and maybe upload more photos.

Yes, and so handy for a fast getaway. That's the first time they gave me a real mug, guess we regulars are immune to the local cooties.

You had me at "a special message is embedded in the photo for TromboneAl," Cuppa. I have my secret e-r.org decoder ring all over that photo and am getting bupkis.

Psst, the always correct T-Bone was first to spot the fact that R-I-T wore the same shirt to two meetings with board members. Now it's a fashion craze.

I do think he looks younger - - nice photo. Sounds like you four had a good morning.

So, Rich, is that your "first shave of ER"?

Nice photo guys, thanks for posting. A clean shaven Rich in a different shirt. More time in retirement?

I actually had it with me on this trip, remembering too late that it is my "meet-up" uniform.

Posting from the road, Kerouac style...

We had great morning with Cuppajoe and her SO. We arrived a few minutes before she did and she absolutely lasered in on us -- must have known everyone else in the room or perhaps my bemused expression gave us away. All 4 of us really clicked. I'll try to upload another pcture or two when we get home after the Holidays. We even discovered distant Wisconsin roots.

Sorry about the shirt, but if I get back on track, it only means that the current picture (in the wrong shirt) will increase in value like a Ted Williams baseball card.

A wonderful get-together.

Bicycles?
Trombone or piano?
Tent pitched in the middle of Nowhere?
Homemade granola bars?

I'm stumped.
