    Heading for Akron

    Greetings all

    The last demo of the year is upon me. I am packing up for a two day gig in Akron OH. Is anyone here from there or around there? If so, if you have any interest in meeting up for some coffee and stories, I would be glad to do so. One of the big perks of this kind of job is getting to meet all the people along the way.

    Hi Bill. I am "from around Akron", but had the good sense to leave in 1979. I was born, educated, and worked in Akron for nearly 39 years. It is a good place to be FROM. The last time I visited, it had changed so much, I had a hard time finding my way around town.

    Hope you enjoy your stay in the EX rubber capital.

    Bill,
    I'm about forty miles East of Akron. If you're coming across I-80, you'll pass within a mile of my house. If you're using the turnpike, maybe three miles.

    Mida and I would love to meet you for coffee, dinner, etc. - either as you pass through this area, or somewhere in Akron. Let me know.

    I've also emailed you regarding this.

    The wife's doing some baking for him right now! Hope he likes Paula Deen's lemon bars. If not, then there'll be more for me!

    Bill and I have already met. Mida and I have been to 'Five Barns' the past two years, and have greatly enjoyed Bill and Lisa's hospitality. Now, we'll enjoy returning the favor. Only regret is that Lisa won't be with him.

    Don't count on that. Unless, of course, you hide some.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the two of you again, and don't pay any attention to Larry.
