Bingster is OK and will be back
« on: July 16, 2010, 09:13:08 AM »
I contacted "Bingster" a few days ago as his absence from the forum was conspicuous.  I just wanted to let him know we'd been thinking about him and hoped all was well.

He replied that his father has been ill and he's been staying with his parents helping his mother during his father's illness.  He replied in part........

But everything seems fine now, and I should be back home next week.  Let the gang know I've missed them, and I'm sure I'll have a couple thousand posts to go through!

We look forward to Bingster's (Darrin) return when the time is right.

~Dennis

Another member MIA is this guy .... fin something .... that used to show some really nice looking phones. I think he used to drive an old Bell truck for a living.

I wonder what is he doing these days ....

Where did Matt go?

I just checked his Facebook page, he's still around, just hasn't been online much.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

Hi, Guys,

Yep, I'm still workin' and practicin' all of the night moves.  Sorry I've dropped off the radar for the time being!  I'm still restoring phones for a couple of collectors to keep a little money flowing in, but haven't done any eBay sales lately.  I promise I'll start making more of a contribution once things return to normal.  In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if I can help with anything!
 
Just for grins, here's a link to some photos of my bass if anyone's interested: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/stuffhread.php?t=670349

I'm glad to hear it isn't anything too serious.  Also glad to see you again, Greg.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.
