Hello everyone, Im TinPan Don. Im a blues guitarist from Long Island NY, my wife Beverly and I have lived here for 6 years. We have 2 wonderful chocolate labs "Candy 11yo" and "Ginger" 10yo. There is a saying in my industry "you dont have to be sad to play the blues", this is true because I have found that when Im sad I dont play as well as when Im happy. Today Im sad because we have a health problem with Ginger and we may loose her soon, possibly even by today. I will post the problem and some questions in the other forum room.
Be good, be well, and God Bless!

Welcome Don. Is playing the blues your livelihood? My son is a guitarist in a band in NJ.
Not at this time, I retired after some health issues of my own, I have MS, and was told 25/30 years ago that not only will I never play guitar again but I should expect to be in a wheelchair with in 5 years. My hands and fingers went numb so I quit playing believeing what they told me. Well not only em I not in a wheelchair 30 years later I am making a come back. I will be playing tomorrow which will be tough thinking of Ginger. (who is still with us by the way, she is back on her meds and is eating, but it is only a matter of time, Bev and I are greatful to God for a little extra time)

Congrats on the comeback! Ginger (and you and your wife) will continue to be in my thoughts.
