Hope you feel better really soon chum.

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Sergio! A small bump...or lurch.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Thanks for the nice words about Randy - I was away when he died. Reading his last post just now has certainly changed how I feel about today. As always Todd, thanks for bringing us together.

Todd Mason said...

It was definitely no one's favorite news...and a remarkable last post. Thanks, as always, for your consistent contributions and support.

Elgin Bleecker said...

Quite a list this week, Todd. Thanks for including my post.

Todd Mason said...

Pretty diverse, I think. Thanks for contributing.

Jack Seabrook said...

Todd, can you check the Evan Lewis link?

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Jack. Time to check the rest, as well.

Yvette said...

Hi Todd, just posted mine. A day late and a dollar very short. :) Sorry about that but my mind was blank yesterday.

Yvette said...

Actually, two days late. I did say my mind was blank and I meant it.

Todd Mason said...

Yours no more than mine, Yvette...the doctor's appointment and various errands I had to run today shouldn't've taken up This much time on Monthly Underappreciated Music Day. Popping your entry in now...and will probably repeat it next week, for those core folks who missed it this week (the larger audience accretes over time).
