Get Well Soon (if you haven't already), Rocket From Mars!

Okay, this isn't a picture of a Rocket From Mars, but a Rocket TO Mars, but you get the idea!

I hope 'Rocket From Mars' is feeling better (and anybody who has been reading this blog knows who that is..........he is a great friend to this blog and, I like to think me as well. He sent me a kind E-mail a while back inquiring as to how I was doing since I hadn't posted anything in a while. I still haven't been able to respond to the E-Mail (as is usually the case), but I hope he considers this a valid response!)

He pops in from time to time, but not nearly enough and he had some nice things to say about my absence (as well as 'Filmpac' and 'Isbum', by the way, in case they thought I hadn't noticed!). Well, Rocket had an accident a while back, but he seems on the mend as far as I know. I hope he's been enjoying some of the great music that's been showing up here (not by me, that is) and that it's helped him to get better in some small way.

Rocket's been visiting this blog since he offered me another copy of 'House of the Rising Sun' for my home-made compilations (and well before that, I suspect). That's how long he's been coming here and that's how kind he is! (And I suspect he's been kind for quite some time, probably since birth, but I have no way of proving that.) And by the way, I hope to get around to eventually putting out another volume of those one day (along with State Songs, et al), just in case anybody thought I forgot. I think I've got somewhere around 150 versions of that song, but I just put up the most interesting ones. But I digressed again.........

Back to 'Rocket From Mars'. Well, that's all I really wanted to say, except that even when Rocket (and anybody else who has been around, for that matter) aren't here, know that they are always sorely missed. And to all those people who keep visiting the blog (though God knows why), I want to thank them too because you're all great! :))

Wow nomwl1---

I'm speechless. Your kind words have actually brought a tear to my eye. Thank you so much. I've said it before (and obviously I'm about to say it again) I don't know you from Adam HOWEVER I do feel a kindship and bond with you and others on this site.

As far as how I'm feeling---I'm doing great! I'm progressing nicely and YES! the music on this and other blogs has proven VERY therapeautic (sp?).

I'm sorry to hear that you had a rough January, I hope you're doing well. And please---don't feel obligated as far as returning my email---it's just good to have you back at the 'party'.

Your friend,

Rocket
 
Hi Rocket!

I'm so glad to hear you're doing well! I felt bad to hear about your accident, but it's good to know music has healing properties!

And the kinship and bond you spoke of goes double for me! It is funny how we don't really know each other, but you and everyone else have created this special bond on the blog. You and Isbum (and Mickey, and so many others) who've stuck by me for so long and so many of the other people who are more recent friends mean so much to me (not to make you even sicker with all the syrup!).

Well, if I didn't think it would bore everyone, I would post tributes to you and all the regulars here all the time!

......and good to be back at the party, my friend! :))
 
Yes, guys, you're quite right - I really feel as if I were part of a large, closely-knit family here, all of us having similar musical interests, and all you guys and dolls showing unlimited generosity with sharing, ripping, uploading and posting each other's requests.

It's a wonderful feeling. Long may the party go on!
 
Here HERE! Mel, you said it baby!;)
 
Hi Mel!

I couldn't agree with you more! :)) It is such a wonderful atmosphere (and you're such a big part of it!). That atmosphere of sharing is so great and the people are so nice (I almost find it hard to believe that it's MY blog. :)))

======================

Hi Isbum!

And let's not forget Isbum! You party animal, you!! :))
