Tom, my wife, daughters and grandkids are all well. Hailey is raising a piglet in FFA. It'll be ready for market in February. You could smoke Diesel's butt. :lol:
It gets worse every year, doesn't it? Hate to see you go. Let me but you a beer or two before you leave. It's been too long. No more kids, 2 is enough. Sylvie is now 10 and Nora is 8.

Woohooo111 The administrators were able to restore my account! And Doug, I could never cook something that has a name111

Glad to hear the family is doing well. My fifth grandchild was born in June, I'm officially old.

Edited to add the proper exclamation points.

Hey where you been dude? Hope you are well.
Lurking and snooping around. I'm doing well sir, and you?
Not too bad. Plugging along like everyone else. Miss this old place but only come back here and snoop and post on occasion.
Yeah, back in the day this place was a blast. A year or so ago I tried to log in and the site wouldn't let me saying my account was inactive so I created a new one, but it's just not the same.
Good deal. You still chasing bad guys or smoking butts full time?

Oh yeah, Hoping Machine, dudes.
Hey buddy! You still calling HC home?
Greg, I'm still doing both! Douglas, hope all is well with you and yours.

Also, starts off by saying it was supposed to be a Farrar solo with Will Johnson as a contributor. I'm pretty sure it was originally supposed to be with Anders Parker. Johnson was the last guy to be brought on board.

So it goes.
Yeah, that sounds like a whole bunch of misinformation. I clearly remember an interview with Jim James shortly after the record's release in which he said he decided to become involved in the project after hearing a recording of Jay playing 'Hoping Machine.' He said he was struck by the song's beauty and reached out to Jay asking to participate. I think all four of them composed their own music and chose their own Woody lyrics. And my understanding is that no one even had much input in anyone's songs other than their own.
