Thread Name: Rick Fielding's influence
Subject: RE: Rick Fielding's influence
Want to see a wonderful picture? THIS PICTURE is from the trip that started it all with Rick, myself, p.j. and Dave Swann. I came to know my wonderful friend Peter T. at this, Banjo Bonnie, Tony Burns, and Willie O. And of course, our Rick and Heather. I was introduced to the wonders of that wonderful Eden of Heather's creation known as the backyard. It was here that I (a card carrying journeyman carpenter) saw the very first structure that I had ever seen that had been built with a Dremel tool. And it was here that I managed to sink into the lush loam of the backyard which caused Peter T to wax poetic about falling "gracefully as only a big man can". LOL. This was a magical beginning to a magical friendship. It has led me, musically, down many paths. It has caused me to become friends with some astounding musicians.

The thread that tells of the events leading up to and including the day is HERE
